Eyebrow Window Treatments Are No Longer a Challenge

Kimball Jones

Eyebrow windows are a type of arched windows which can be found in homes in Southern California and can be a challenge to accessorize with window coverings because of to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the typical rectangular shape of blinds, draperies, and shades hide their curves and the aesthetics they add to your home. So it’s best to find a window treatment that can show off your window’s shape. 

The Window’s Location, Size, and Function

The first step in finding eyebrow window treatments is to consider the window’s function, location, and size. Big eyebrow windows in bedrooms or common areas should have some kind of covering to adjust for light as well as match your home’s décor. Most similar windows in common areas are set above a larger rectangular window. So you might benefit from a window treatment that covers and accentuates both kinds of windows accordingly.

If your windows happen to be mini dormers whose design is to let light into an upstairs room, then it might not be necessary to add a window treatment unless you wish to add appeal to your home’s exterior. However, if your windows are sizeable or are in a heavily used room on your upper floor, consider covering them to add more privacy.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Our first recommendation for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. They are able to be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a seamless look to your windows. Typically, the shutter louvers on the eyebrow window can either be arranged in a sunburst shape or horizontally. Each shutter is customized to match any window’s unique curves by way of advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered in five shades of white and natural wood colors, as well as a number of paints to match with your style. For a more natural wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters are also able to be built to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be applied to arched windows either by itself or partnered with another window covering. The window film will reduce light entering through the windows to keep your irreplaceable belongings from fading. One disadvantage of window tint is that it offers less privacy than other window treatment options.
