Half Arched Window Blinds
We (Blind Magic) sell many styles of Hunter Douglas blinds in Edmonton. Blinds for Half Arched windows is always a challenge but we have many solutions. There are no off-the-shelf options for half arched windows. They require custom blinds as no two window arches are the same nor are they always true perfect 1/2 circles. Often, prior to ordering, we ask our installers template the existing windows with paper templates so Hunter Douglas can duplicate the shade to fit into the opening with minimal light gaps.
We find only about 20% of our customer cover half arched windows with blinds. Many time they are left open for light to come into the room. These windows are usually high up on the wall with no privacy concerns. For our customers that require arch blinds, we have many solutions that include Silhouette Arch shades, Duette Arch shades, faux wood arch blinds and Shutter arches. Many of the Hunterdouglas Arch window coverings can be operated to open and close; but not all.
The primary reasons to buy blinds for these windows is for heat concerns insulation. An arched window on a south facing wall is going to let in a lot of heat during the summer. An insulating blind like a honeycomb shade will do a great job of blocking this heat out. Other customers get shades for these windows to create consistency throughout their home. The second most popular reason for the Arch shades is for privacy.
