Eyebrow Window Treatments Are No Longer a Hassle

Jacob Hayes

Eyebrow windows are a kind of partly rounded windows which are found in Kingsport homes and are a challenge to add window treatments to due to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the traditional square shape of blinds and shades hide their curves and the architectural interest they bring to your home. So you’ll want an eyebrow 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. Large eyebrow windows in bedrooms or living areas should have some kind of covering to control for light and accentuate your home’s décor. Many similar windows in common areas are set on top of a larger rectangular window. So you might benefit from a window treatment that protects and integrates both kinds of windows accordingly.

If your windows happen to be mini dormers whose design is to let light into an upstairs room, then you might not need to add a window treatment unless you wish to add curb appeal from the outside looking in. Though, if your windows are bigger or are in a commonly used room on your upper floor, you might consider covering them to add more privacy.

Custom-built Plantation Shutters

Our top choice for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. These shutters can be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a seamless look to your windows. Typically, the louvers on an eyebrow shutter can either be arranged in a sunburst shape or horizontally. Every shutter we make is custom assembled to match your window’s individual shape using advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters are available in five shades of white and natural wood colors, as well as a number of paints to coordinate with your home’s décor. 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 applied to eyebrow windows either by itself or partnered with another window covering. The window film will block the UV light coming through the windows to keep your belongings such as photographs and furniture from discoloring. One downside of window tint is that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window treatments.
