What are the best window treatments for arched windows?
There are many styles of arched window coverings, including arched window curtains, arched window shades, and even arched blinds. But the right window treatment for your arched windows should be custom fit and designed. This allows them to fit snugly, preserving the architectural detail of your arched windows and keeping the striking look and timeless appeal of the window frame. You can usually get a custom window treatment for arched windows in cellular shades, shutters, or wood blinds, however if your window is not a perfect arch, you may need to send in a template to get them custom made to the right shape.
That said, not everyone is looking to preserve the look of their arch windows, and if that's the case for you, then go for arched window curtains outside mounted above your window. When pulled open, they accent and emphasize the arch beautifully, and when closed they hide the window completely.

If you have curved windows with a straight rectangular section below it, you'll want to look at adding a Palladian shelf just below the arch. This gives you a surface to mount any blind or shade to, allowing for light control to a window below an arch.
