Eyebrow Window Treatments Are No Longer a Challenge

January 06, 2017

Eyebrow windows are a kind of specialty windows that are found in homes in Denver and can be a challenge to accessorize with window coverings due to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the typical rectangular shape of shades or drapes hide their curves and the aesthetics they bring to your home. So you’ll want a window treatment that can be customized to your window’s shape. 

The Window’s Location, Size, and Function

The first step in choosing eyebrow window treatments is to consider the window’s function, location, and size. Big eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or common areas should have some sort of covering to adjust for light and match your home’s décor. Most similar windows in common areas are set above a larger standard window. So you may need a window treatment that covers and integrates both sets of windows seamlessly.

If your home’s eyebrow windows are mini dormers whose job is to let light into an upstairs room, then you might not need 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 heavily used room on your upper floor, you might consider covering them for privacy and light control.

Custom-built Plantation Shutters

Our number one recommendation for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. These shutters are able to be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a coordinated look to your windows. Typically, the louvers on an eyebrow shutter can be arranged horizontally or fanned out into a sunburst. Every shutter we make is custom assembled to fit your window’s unique curves by way of advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered in five stains of white and natural wood colors, and a variety of paints to match with your style. If you prefer a wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters can also be custom-built to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be added to arched windows either on its own or alongside another window covering. The window film will impede light entering through the windows to protect your furniture and carpet from becoming washed out. One drawback of window film is that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window treatment options.
