Window Type

While basic rectangles are the standard when it comes to windows, you’ll also find many windows in distinctive specialty shapes.

Angled, arched and other types of interesting shaped windows can create a focal point in a room while holding their own unadorned. But just like standard windows, adding window treatments to these unique forms helps control natural light and improves privacy.

You’ll find no shortage of styles for specialty shaped windows, as well as a variety of fabrics and colors. Want to learn more? Check out the info below.

Benefits of Adding Window Treatments to Specialty Shaped Windows

While specialty shaped windows are unique on their own, adding window treatments provides the following benefits:

Enhanced Privacy

Having window treatments on specialty shaped windows lets you enjoy privacy when you want it and prevents neighbors and passersby from having a clear view into your home after sunset.

Extra Insulation

In winter and in cool climates, window treatments help prevent heat from escaping, keeping a room warmer. Simply open your window treatments during the day to let the sun in, then close them at night to add that insulating layer.

In summer or warm climates, keeping window treatments closed during the day prevents the sun’s rays from heating up a room, so it stays cooler.

UV Protection

Lowering window treatments to block the sun’s harsh afternoon rays can help furniture and flooring from fading.
