Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldn't Be Tricky

January 06, 2017

Eyebrow windows are a style of specialty windows which can be found in homes in Gainesville and can be a challenge to accessorize with window coverings because of to their shape. Their signature shape of being long and curved up top means that the traditional rectangular shape of shades or drapes hide their curves and the aesthetics they add to your home. So you’ll need an eyebrow window treatment that can be customized to your window’s shape. 

The Window’s Location, Size, and Function

The first step in picking coverings for eyebrow windows is to consider your window’s size, function, and location. Large eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or living areas will need some sort of covering to adjust for light as well as match your home’s décor. Many eyebrow windows in living areas are set on top of a larger standard window. So you might benefit from a window treatment that protects and accentuates both kinds of windows seamlessly.

If your home’s eyebrow windows are mini dormers whose job is to let light into the attic, then you may not need to add a window treatment unless you wish to add appeal to your home’s exterior. However, if youreyebrow windows are sizeable or are in a heavily used room on your upper floor, you may want to think about covering them to add more privacy.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Our number one pick for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. These shutters can be used on both upper eyebrow windows and lower square windows to give a harmonious look to your windows. Most of the time, the louvers on an eyebrow shutter can be arranged horizontally or fanned out into a sunburst. Every shutter we make is customized to match any window’s curve by utilizing advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters are available in five shades of white and natural wood colors, as well as a variety of paints to match with your existing home design. If you prefer a wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters can also be customized to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be added to arched windows either by itself or partnered with another window treatment. The window film will impede UV rays that come through the windows to protect your irreplaceable belongings from becoming washed out. A disadvantage of window film is the fact that it offers less privacy than other window covering.
