Eyebrow Window Treatments Don’t Have to Be a Challenge

Nate Gromen

Eyebrow windows are a type of partly rounded windows that can be found in homes in Cleveland and are 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 a window treatment that can be customized to your window’s shape. 

The Specifics of Your Window

The first step in choosing eyebrow window treatments is to think about the window’s function, location, and size. Big eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or living areas should have some type 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 might benefit from a window treatment that protects and matches both sets of windows accordingly.

If your windows happen to be mini dormers whose design is to let light into the attic, then it might not be necessary to add a window treatment unless you wish to add curb appeal from the outside looking in. Though, if youreyebrow windows are larger or are in a frequently used room upstairs, you may want to think about covering them for privacy and light control.

Custom-built Plantation Shutters

Polywood® plantation shutters are our first recommendation for eyebrow windows. These shutters can be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a seamless look to your windows. Usually, 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 individual shape by way of advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered 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 are also able to be built to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be added to arched windows either on its own or partnered with another window treatment. The window film will reduce UV rays that come through the windows to protect your belongings such as photographs and furniture from fading. A downside of window film is the fact that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
