Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldn't Be Difficult

January 06, 2017

Eyebrow windows are a kind of partly rounded windows that can be found in Hartford homes and are a challenge to cover with window treatments due to their shape. Their signature shape of being long and curved up top means that the usual rectangular shape of blinds, draperies, and shades hide their curves and the aesthetics they bring to your home. So it’s best to find a window treatment that can be customized to your window’s shape. 

The Specifics of Your Window

The first step in picking eyebrow window treatments is to think about your window’s function, location, and size. Big eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or common areas should have some type of covering to adjust for light and accentuate your home’s décor. Most similar windows in living areas are set on top of a larger standard window. So you might benefit from a window treatment that covers and accentuates both sets of windows beautifully.

If you happen to have eyebrow windows as mini dormers whose design is to let light into an upstairs room, then you might not need to add a window treatment unless you want to add curb appeal from the exterior. However, if your windows are sizeable or are in a heavily used room on your upper floor, consider covering them for privacy and light control.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Our top choice for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. They can be used on both upper eyebrow windows and lower square windows to give a harmonious look to your windows. Typically, the shutter louvers on the eyebrow window can be arranged horizontally or fanned out into a sunburst. Every shutter we make is custom-built to fit your window’s individual shape by way of advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered in five shades of white and natural wood colors, and a number of paints to coordinate with your home’s décor. If you prefer a wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters are also able to be custom-built to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be put on eyebrow windows either by itself or alongside another window treatment. The window film will impede the UV light coming through the windows to keep your furniture and carpet from becoming washed out. A drawback of window film is the fact that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
