If you have half-moon-shaped windows, you may be feeling a sense of frustration because it is hard to find the right window treatment that will work. Well, fear not! It’s time for your home update with these half-moon treatment ideas. Here is how to choose the perfect kind of window coverings that will add an elegant touch and solve any problem that you might encounter along the way.
Setting up for half moon windows can be tricky but there are several ways to do it that will work with your unique needs and add architectural interest while not blocking any sunlight from coming through. If you have the time and patience to find your window treatment, then it will be worth every second of it. Take into consideration how much light comes through, as well as what type of style you are going for.
Choosing the Right Curtains
To start off, curtains are the simplest option for half moon windows. If there are other half-moon windows in the room or on the same wall as the window you are working on, a room-wide treatment or a curtain rod in multiple sections will be necessary. Curtains with rods work well because they will fill up extra space on either side of the curtain panel and create an elegant look from both sides of the glass pane. If you want to add more color, I recommend adding a layer of fabric or lace to the curtains.
Choosing the Right Blinds
If you are looking to cover a half-moon window, most stores will offer either vertical or horizontal blinds. Vertical blinds can be closed completely and may not have enough coverage if your window is taller than it is wide; however, they do look nice with mirrored glass. Horizontal blinds work better for a half-moon window, but they do not offer as much privacy.
Choosing the Right Shades
A lot of stores will offer a table window that can be adjusted vertically and horizontally. If you are looking for something with privacy, then this is your best option because it can also be closed completely. You may notice that these windows don’t come standard in size, so it might take some time to find a perfect match.
Some More Tips to Dress Up Half Moon Windows
If it is more natural light, then your best option would be to go with a lighter color on the window lining and curtains because this will help reflect that light back out. For rooms where there’s not as much sunlight coming in, it might be better to stick with darker colors so that the room doesn’t feel too dark.
If you are looking for a more formal look, then choose colors that will complement the materials in your home and add some style points to it by adding textures and patterns to your window treatment. You can also accentuate with other fabrics like silks or velvets if desired.
In regards to the window lining, see if it can be made of a less-reflective material like blackout fabric because this will work well with half-moon windows. This way you won’t have to worry about bright sunlight coming in and glaring your eyes or hindering your focus on what’s happening inside that room.
The most important thing is to choose something that will be able to block out all types of light coming through if you are working on this type of situation. If you have any other windows in your room, make sure they are also treated with appropriate window treatment for privacy and style.
