Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldn't Be Difficult

January 06, 2017

Eyebrow windows are a style of partly rounded windows that are found in Phoenix homes and can be a challenge to add window treatments to because of to their shape. Their signature shape of being long and curved up top means that the traditional rectangular shape of blinds and shades hide their curves and the aesthetics they bring to your home. So it’s best to find an eyebrow window treatment that can show off your window’s shape. 

The Specifics of Your Window

The first step in picking coverings for eyebrow windows is to think about the window’s function, location, and size. Big eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or living areas should have some sort of covering to control for light and match your home’s décor. Many similar windows in common areas are set on top of a larger standard window. So you’ll want a window treatment that covers and accentuates both kinds of windows accordingly.

If you happen to have eyebrow windows as mini dormers whose purpose is to let light into an upstairs room, then you may not need to cover these windows unless you want to add curb appeal from the exterior. However, if your windows are larger or are in a frequently used room upstairs, consider covering them to add more privacy.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Our top pick for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. These shutters can be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a harmonious look to your windows. Most of the time, the louvers on an eyebrow shutter can either be arranged in a sunburst shape or horizontally. Each shutter is custom-built to match your window’s individual shape using advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters are available in five stains of white and natural wood colors, and a wide array of paints to match with your existing home design. For a more natural wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters can also be built to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be applied to eyebrow windows either on its own or partnered with another window covering. The window film will reduce light entering through the windows to keep your irreplaceable belongings from fading. A downside of window film is the fact that it offers less privacy than other window treatment options.
