Eyebrow Window Treatments Don’t Have to Be Difficult

Holly Perron

Eyebrow windows are a type of partly rounded windows which are found in homes in Hartford and can be a challenge to cover with window treatments due to their shape. Their signature shape of being long and curved up top means that the typical square shape of shades or drapes hide their curves and the architectural interest they add to your home. So you’ll need an eyebrow window treatment that can show off your window’s shape. 

The Location, Size, and Function of Your Window

The first step in picking eyebrow window treatments is to consider the window’s size, function, and location. Large eyebrow windows in bedrooms or common areas should have some kind of covering to control for light and accentuate your home’s décor. Most similar windows in common areas are set atop a larger rectangular window. So you may need a window treatment that protects and integrates both kinds of windows accordingly.

If your windows happen to be mini dormers whose job 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 youreyebrow windows are larger or are in a frequently used room on your upper floor, you may want to think about covering them for privacy and light control.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Our number one pick for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. They are able to be used on both upper eyebrow windows and lower square windows to give a seamless look to your windows. Usually, the shutter louvers on the eyebrow window can be arranged horizontally or fanned out into a sunburst. Every shutter we make is custom assembled to fit any window’s individual shape by utilizing advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters are available in five shades of white and natural wood colors, and a number of paints to coordinate with your existing home design. If you prefer a 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 alongside another window covering. The window film will impede light entering through the windows to protect your irreplaceable belongings from fading. A drawback of window tint is the fact that it offers less privacy than other window covering.
