I recently got the Graber crystalpleat cellular shade installed on the huge arch window above the drawing-room door for a customer. They actually wanted to get rid of the arch window as it was difficult to manage the window treatment on it. Since they moved in, they had it all covered up to reduce light interference through the arched window. My decorator’s eye saw the beauty of this window and how it added value to the decor of their drawing room. Hence, I suggested a beautiful light-filtering designview cordless cellular shade for the arch that would let in just enough diffused light to enrich the beauty of the room. Now the cellular shade arches like a fan in a semi-circle, making it the highlight of the whole room. It was visually very appealing decor, especially with the rich, deep toned color.

How To Make Window Templates.

If you are not hiring a professional for installation, it is advised you pay particular attention to measurements of your specialty windows. Since you will be custom ordering your blinds, the returns policy would be very strict. If you are a do-it-yourself homeowner, you can save the time and cost of a professional by making a template using butcher paper, heavy brown wrapping paper or building paper. In some cases, it’s necessary to remove the inside trim to expose the edges of the frame before making a template.

Tape the paper over the window opening allowing plenty of overlap while taking care not to press against the template paper that may cause distortion messing up with measurement and size. Now carefully trace an exact outline of the window opening on the paper. Remove the taped paper and make sure the measurements are accurate. Know that you have to measure the window and not just the glass portion of it. If you are opting for an outside mount, you may have to add the desired amount of overlap to the window outline. Draw a second outline around it to match the shape of the finished shade and then erase the inside line.

Once sure, cut the paper and fit it on the window to be double sure before placing your order. Remember that you should not fold your template, but roll and place it in a mailing tube to send it over to the preferred online store. Note that the stores will not accept templates made of newspaper, plastic, wax paper, fabric, tissue paper, roofing paper, existing arch shades, wrapping paper, poster board or cardboard, so do not waste your time over them.

When you opt for cellular, or honeycomb shades, for your specialty windows, you will find them a perfect match for your home decor. Why not, since they are available in an extensive selection of designer-inspired colors and fabrics. Splash those unique windows with bright colors and enjoy the beauty it adds to your home.
