Product Overview

Arched & Bay Window Shutters in San Diego, Orange County, Sacramento, Fresno

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. When driving around San Diego, you can see many San Diego homes have these beautiful large arched windows and Bay windows. What you will also see is that many of these arched windows remain uncovered because there are only a limited number of options for window treatments that can completely cover an arched window.

Custom plantation shutters are one of our favorite solutions for arched windows because they can be custom-built to fit any size window and stained to match any home’s existing decor.

Custom Shutter Options for Arched Windows

When covering arched windows with shutters, there are two options. 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.

Arched Shutters Materials

3 Blind Mice Window Coverings offer custom arched shutters in the following materials:

  • Composite – Aka faux wood shutters constructed from synthetic polymers or PVC are more substantial than real wood shutters, but they are also extremely durable, which is a beautiful advantage.
  • Wood – If you interested in real wood shutters, the lighter-weight basswood, aspen, or poplar woods are less expensive than the darker woods including oak, maple, and cherry, and all of them look beautiful when custom stained.

Important Considerations

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.

FAQS

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.
