Their new function and style report has been released considering the latest figures on the popularity of arch windows. Arch windows, also called half-moon or radius windows, are a common feature of historical Victorian and Georgian homes in the United Kingdom. As a recent article on Home Edit explained, they are also equally popular in new builds because they make a focal design point in your room, allow more natural light in, and are seen as timeless in style.

Shuttercraft agrees arch windows make for a focal point for your home’s design aesthetics. In their extensive work throughout the United Kingdom, they have seen that they come in many forms and sizes, including in restored and repurposed churches, in gable end and barn conversions, and in period properties, which also often feature arch windows over doorways.

Wherever your arch window or windows are located, Shuttercraft’s new report reveals you have several shutter options available to you.

As a fitter of made-to-measure custom window treatments, Shuttercraft explains their plantation shutters can be mounted in two ways: ' isolate’ your arch or ‘include’ your arch. In essence, these two styles involve segmenting your arch window by crafting separately opening shutter sections or integrating your arch, which generally consists in creating two shutters that divide your whole window in half.

Shuttercraft’s new report has been released to offer a starting point for your journey into window treatments. Their design team is available online, over the phone and in homes nationwide to give you more specific advice about finishes, colours, light control, aesthetics, insulation, and more.

A spokesperson for the made-to-measure custom blinds and shutters providers said, “Arched windows are a beautiful feature in any home, but they’re one to which many window dressings don’t do full justice. This is where shutters are different. However, choosing window coverings for specially shaped windows isn’t as straightforward as choosing a style for a standard window, which is why we’re here to help.”

Don’t hide your beautiful arch windows behind dated drapes; bring them to life with Shuttercraft’s custom, made-to-measure plantation shutters.
