Eric Ramsey

Eyebrow windows are a kind of arched windows which are 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 blinds and shades 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 location, size and function. Large eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or living areas will need some kind of covering to adjust for light as well as coordinate with 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 matches both kinds of windows seamlessly.

If your home’s eyebrow windows are mini dormers whose purpose 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 commonly used room on your upper floor, you may want to think about 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 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 wide array of paints to match with your style. 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 arched windows either by itself or partnered with another window treatment.
