Stay in Style: How to Cover Oddly Shaped Windows

Not all windows are created equally. In fact, depending on how your home is built, you may be faced with a variety of different window sizes, shapes and angles. While these out-of-the-norm windows can be quite beautiful, it can be difficult to figure out how to create a stylish treatment that still fits correctly. Luckily, we have a few recommendations to make your life a little easier.

Fixed shades

With fixed shades, you lose out on some of the ease-of-use aspects of traditional window treatments, while gaining a sense of consistency in style. This is a great option for areas like the dining room, where having easy light control may not be your highest priority.


Shutters can easily be made to custom fit even the most oddly shaped windows, making them the perfect choice for your most unique openings. Simply speak with a staff member about creating a custom size and look — you can choose from classic style to a more contemporary finish. It’s one of the reasons why we love shutters so much!

Cellular shades

Oh, cellular shades, how we love you! Choose from what’s called a “sunburst” or fan look for arching windows or a more traditional arch that is still completely moveable. Cellular shades can also be fit into smaller windows — in fact, they are a great option no matter what size and shape you have to dress.

Faux iron grilles

We’ve mentioned the benefits of faux iron grilles before, mostly because we absolutely adore the sophisticated element they add to a room. But did you know they can also be custom made to fit even the most challenging shapes? Plus, choose from a range of colors and styles to perfectly complement your interior and exterior design. Keep in mind that a grille will not provide the same privacy and light control that other window treatments do. But, sometimes, the overall appearance of this unique feature can make up for that.

Traditional treatments

If you don’t want to go through the process of creating custom shades or are just looking for something more traditional, you can always mount above the frame of your window to create a classic look that offers maximum light protection. We can install a valance above an oddly shaped frame and make use of whatever your favorite treatment is.
