Eyebrow Window Treatments Don’t Have to Be Tricky

Gary Harding

Eyebrow windows are a kind of specialty windows that are found in homes in Denver and can be a challenge to add window treatments to 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 finding 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 coordinate with your home’s décor. Most similar windows in common areas are set above a larger standard window. So you’ll want a window treatment that covers and integrates both sets of windows seamlessly.

If your windows happen to be mini dormers whose purpose 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 commonly 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 curve by way of advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered in five stains of white and natural wood colors, and a wide array of paints to coordinate with your existing home design. 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 applied to arched windows either on its own or paired with another window covering. The window film will block light entering through the windows to protect your furniture and carpet from fading. One drawback of window film is that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
