No matter how unusual the shape of the window, wood shutters are a viable option as window treatments. For irregularly shaped windows, shutters present the possibility for a custom design that goes beyond a window dressing alone and approaches a more permanent architectural presence.
For an arched, Palladian-style window, shutters can create one of architecture's most enduring motifs, the classic sunburst. Standard louvered shutters and gate-swing shutters add an interesting linear dimension to rectangular windows. And they are practical: Shutters can be adjusted for sunlight blockage and privacy as need dictates.
