half moon window

I know - my current solution is embarrassing! I am desperate to cover this half-moon window in a much nicer way but I am stuck. The half-moon blinds are ugly and cost a fortune to custom make to these measurements. The ceiling is quite close to the top of the window so I don't think hanging a rod with drapes over all the windows will work. We like our room dark so leaving it open isn't an option. Thank you, thank you!!

Why don't you hang a large piece of plywood cut in a rectagular shape big enough to cover the whole arch and staple a decorator fabric to the wood. I would like to see the rest of the room to see if this could possibly work.

Using brush nickel balls and rungs, ( can get at lowes) hang panels floor to ceiling extends balls pass window so only 1/4 I'd window is covered. Get a light weight woven fabric for best results. On arch. Also at lowes Home Depot , they carry a pleated fan. That can be cut to fit into arch. It sits on ledge. They may come in blackout. That should work and look a lot better. You can also have windows tinted very dark.

Another thought- just have it drywalled and painted. If you like it dark, the window is a waste.

You can have roman shades made with an arch top by a local seamstress. All they need is a template -- you could choose the same fabric for the other two windows. Unfortunately, these windows are always a problem -- I have done arched woven woods and fabric shades. You can also do a valance that covers the top eyebrow arch and panels on the sides that can be opened and closed.

Window film plus this stationary treatment that travis was describing (I think) would be a good combo for you. Also shown are the short single rods for stationary panels if they might work. Last one is the ideal, but space is an issue.

Allrighty then. I'll slap the half moon people and you can slap me, no subway tile in my house.. but it does look good in some applications. This half moon window gives dimension to a boring space, However, a nice transom would have suited better.

I have a window similar to this and we tinted the glass. Also, there is decorative tint that is sold.
