Classic and large houses usually have arched window; it adds majestic and luxurious feel to it. Not only classic houses have arched-type house; modern houses can have it too. Here I want to share some ideas for arched windows you can use to decorate your house, without looking old or left behind. Besides getting the luxurious feeling, the house with arched-type window has sturdy and safe feel to it. Most houses I have seen on classic British films usually have arched types of window; this gives strong but classic atmosphere for house.
For classic houses, type or windows which suit them usually strong, tall windows. This includes arched-shaped windows. The windows are strong and tall, it has some more glass-layers and it accentuates the classic value of the building. For this type of windows, the exterior as well as houses interior should support the whole look. Classic houses have tall windows; from its exterior side, the house usually built in brick. Some houses I have seen in British and classic American style use red brick for building their houses, or grey bricks mixed with large arched-type windows.
As mentioned above, modern houses can have arched windows too. Tall windows especially arched-type windows need extra treatments to make it approachable for modernly designed house. Some houses use different way to decorate arched-type windows. My house is a modern house with arched-type windows. It is designed by my uncle, an architect. He designed the windows which have some panels on it; so windows are not plain.
My mother decorates it with her own idea, getting a thick colorful curtain to give modern sense. She gives the window the kind of curtain with some tassels attached on it. The window looks less boring and more colorful with a hint of modern colors. Some arched-type windows can be decorated too by having window blinds on it, mixed with hanging curtain on top part of the window. This gives modern, yet still classic looks for the windows.Wanjia Alumunium Arched Window
