Shaped Windows Can Be Covered

If you have shaped windows, you know how hard it can be to cover them with window treatments. Some people will throw up sheets or non-custom curtains just so they can block the sun or cold from entering their space. In this blog and video, we show you a great option for your shaped windows.

When you watched the video you saw how these Hunter Douglas Duette Architella Shades with PowerVIew functioned on their shaped windows. They are very efficient for blocking the damaging effects of the sun, adding insulation and providing room darkening for this client.

Your needs may be very different. You may not need room darkening. If this is the case, we would consult with you to determine what level of opacity would best suit your needs, whether you have shaped windows or not.

Shaped Window Treatments

If you have looked at any of our previous videos of angle top windows, you will notice one difference in the valance at the top of the shaped windows. Usually, we use a thicker valance to hide the entire shade at the top. But in this case, because the shade on the right side went to an acute point, I decided to make the valance a bit shorter to maximize the amount of view they have when the shade is open.

As always, everything about this job was customized to the client. From the fabric selections, to the motor choices, to the type of power controls, to the manners of automation, as well as many other factors. If you have shaped windows, or even if you don’t, we suggest getting a full consultation to assure that your windows get the absolute best coverings for your needs.
