Window Treatments for Shaped Windows

Are you wondering where to start in finding the right window treatment to cover your shaped windows and doors? Do you want the ultimate flexibility when it comes to privacy and light control but don’t know what's available?  Do you need some inspiration to help you decide what options would look best in your home? Luckily, Hunter Douglas offers many solutions for challenging windows.

ARCHES, ANGLES, CIRCLES & MORE

Unusually shaped windows can add drama and elegance to a home. They do present particular challenges, however, when trying to find the best way to cover them to add a decorative touch while providing privacy, light control and insulation. Hunter Douglas offers you a wide selection of window treatments that can cover virtually any challenging shape or size of window. See Arch, Angle & Circle Photos

BAY, CORNER & BOW WINDOWS

Bay, corner and bow windows are a beautiful feature in any home that can make a typical flat wall become a picturesque architectural element. Other benefits include added square footage for seating or decoration, and allowing more natural light to enter the room. See Bay, Corner & Bow Photos

FRENCH DOORS

While virtually any Hunter Douglas window treatment can be used on French doors, certain window coverings are better choices for these doors. To allow easy access to handles, window cranks and levers, some, like Duette® and NewStyle®, even offer cut-outs. See French-Door Photos
