Arched windows always add an elegant touch to your home’s décor that can be appreciated for providing great views from inside and “curb appeal” from outside
While arched windows add architectural detail and interest to a home, working with odd-shaped windows can be a daunting task. Not with 3 Blind Mice. When dealing with non-standard windows, it is best to consult window treatment professionals with the expertise and experience for design and solutions. Let us help you maximize your options, and ensure that the design flows throughout your home, and most importantly save time and money in the long run.

Constructed with rigid quality-control processes, built to withstand whatever Mother Nature dishes out - keeping you safe, warm and comfortable year-round.
The most popular choice is a fully framed arched plantation shutter, like you can see in the first half of our video explaining arched shutters. Fully framed arches make a room pop and are a great conversation piece. We like to think of them as furniture for your windows.
Your second option is to install standard square window plantation shutters on the bottom and a sunburst or fixed arch above the rectangular shutters. This option is usually a little less expensive than a fully framed shutter.
While we prefer fully framed arched shutters over square shutters with a sunburst, the fully framed arched shutters are typically more expensive because they are handmade by only the best craftsmen in the factory. For this reason, fully framed arched shutters will usually take longer than traditional square shutters to build and install, so please plan accordingly.
INSIDE MOUNT SHUTTERS
Inside mount shutters are designed to fit inside of a recessed window opening. We can work with an inside mount if the window is set back from the wall far enough to accommodate the shutter frame.
OUTSIDE MOUNT SHUTTERS
Outside mount shutters (aka direct mount plantation shutters) are designed and built to surround your window opening and mounted directly on top of your existing trim or to the wall just outside of the window glass.
ARCHES / HALF CIRCLE
OVALS & OCTAGONS
ARCHES / HALF CIRCLE / ANGLE TOP PANELS
Whole window solutions that perfectly fit the rounded shape of full arch windows or angles of slanted windows.
This classic style covers the bottom part of the window, allowing light to enter above while maintaining privacy.
Eyebrow windows have a soft arch that resembles the shape of an eyebrow at the top. A real lovely classic look for your home.
If you are interested in sophisticated and unique, real wood shutters, the lighter-weight basswood, aspen, or poplar woods are less expensive than the darker woods, including oak, maple, and cherry. Regardless, wooden shutters look stunning when custom-stained to match your decor.
Faux wood shutters constructed from synthetic polymers or PVC are more substantial than real wood shutters, but they are also highly durable, which is a beautiful advantage. They resist peeling, cracking, chipping, and yellowing. Best of all, the material works well in high moisture areas of your home.
Traditional style for smaller window and café height applications.
Most popular louver size provides versatile visibility and light control options.
With wide louvers, this option provides great visibility to the outside and is perfect for larger windows.
TRADITIONAL TILT BAR
Positioned in the center of the shutter for the classic shutter look.
HIDDEN REAR TILT
Discreetly positioned on the back of the panel, allowing a better view-through.
Positioned on either the right or left side of the shutter for less interruption to your view.
Allows each section of louvers to move independently for maximum privacy control.

Mounting shutters inside the window opening are recommended when windows have a decorative trim or molding surrounding the window. Inside mounts allow shutters to attach directly to the window frame with hinges or by adding a small wooden shutter frame.

Begin on the left-hand side of your bay window and measure the width of each section, noting the width of each individually as well as the total width of the window. For example, if you have a multi-angle bay window with 3 panels, your width might measure 24” for the left panel, 48” for the center panel, and 24” for the right panel—with a total width of 96”. For the height, measure from the sill of each window to the top of the window. Record each measurement to the nearest 1/8” and round down to the nearest 1/8” if you land on a 1/16”.
Yes! Shutters make a great window covering for bay windows, and it might be easier than you think. If you’ve struggled with attaching blinds to your angled bay window or are tired of covering it up with curtains, shutters can be the perfect solution. They can be custom-built to fit your bay window’s exact dimensions for a fit that looks great and gives you total control over light, visibility, and privacy in your bay window.
When you measure your arched windows for shutters, make sure to record your width and height measurements, recording to the nearest 1/8” (and rounding down to the nearest 1/8” if you land on a 1/16”). To measure the width, use a steel measuring tape to measure the widest point at the bottom of the arched window. To measure the height, measure from the very center of the bottom up to the arch’s tallest point. If your arched windows have legs (straight sides that end in a curved arch at the top), you’ll need to measure the height of the right and left legs in addition to the middle of the arch.
