Posted 28/06/2021

Going out of your mind because nothing seems to fit? We know the feeling… That's why we put together a whole host of different ideas that you might want to think about so that you can use our made-to-measure skills to really turn on the style. But that's enough about us, let's get right down to work…


Is it worth changing odd shaped windows?

Short answer: no! They give your home character, personality, and unique charm you simply won't get back. Keep them, treasure them, and then use our experts to dress them in style. It may have taken a little while to find us, but now that you're here we can help you. It doesn't matter whether you're looking to dress oval-shaped windows with a floral pattern, or add full light control around the top of your half-moon window. We have you covered.



The ideas you've been looking for…

Finding a half circle window cover can feel like the journey that never ends, but you've made it to your destination. Take a look at some of our bright ideas below and then click through on the links to see more options for you to consider.


- Plantation Shutters: It can be expensive to have shutters that fit the exact shape of your curved windows, so what you could do is cover just the straight edges in the lower section of the windows. If you have that classic half circle top then you can let the light flow in gently while still managing to retain ample shade.



- Stylish Drapes: You might think that finding curtains that you love and then putting them in front of your odd shaped windows is just admitting defeat, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Adding an elegant and lightweight drape that you can open in the day and draw in the evening is the ideal compromise.



- Venetian Blinds: Making the most of the period features in your home is all about using authentic materials. If you opt to use wooden finishes to cover the large rectangular bottoms of your windows then you will be really onto something. You could then look at specialist window coverings for the upper curved windows by adding a small fan. Or leave it bare for extra style points.



Now, you might be thinking that these options just don't quite cut it for your home, and that's okay. That's why we’ve added one in at the end that you might want to think about in a little more detail. Here it is…


Anything else I can do about window coverings for oval windows?

How about really turning them into a feature by using either wooden shutters or wooden Venetians on the lower half, and then applying stain glass decoration to the top? That way you could limit the light that comes through the top without having to spend ages trying to adjust your made-to-measure blinds to fit, all while turning your upper windows into a work of art.


Let us know which one you're going with and we’ll be more than happy to send a few free samples your way. Just what you want to hear when you want to make finding window coverings for those gorgeous round top windows of yours as easy as clicking a button.
