The Finishing Room
What do you need the treatments to do? Privacy, sun control, decorative ?
Many arches look best left alone. Often times, when don't need to address the arch. You can simply mount a straight pole above the window frame and dress it with side panels. I have often made arched roman shades mounted inside the arch. Arched treatments can be pricey. If you ignore the arch, you can save some money.

shutter are also a good solution. they can be arched to match the window so as not to loose the design, tilted to keep the sun out or closed for privacy.

I leave you with an exterior shot of a home that has used multiple arches of varying scales and spans in its design to great success and for great curb appeal. I would move in right now if I could.Next: Browse more photos of arches in design
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Try a Four-Leaf Design That Spans the Ages
Many traditionally inspired landscape elements, especially in a Mediterranean aesthetic, have a quatrefoil shape. It's quite common to see small water features, pools and fountains that have a quatrefoil as the basis for their design.

A barbed quatrefoil is one in which a square is laid over the four overlapping circles. The resulting triangular "barb" between each circular element gives a more controlling and geometrically fixed shape to the quatrefoil.
