Eyebrow Window Treatments Don't Have to Be a Hassle
Eyebrow windows are a style of partly rounded windows that are found in Bluff City homes and are a challenge to accessorize with window coverings due to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the usual 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 Location, Size, and Function of Your Window
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 sort of covering to control for light and accentuate your home’s décor. Most similar windows in common areas are set atop a larger standard window. So you might benefit from a window treatment that protects and integrates both types of windows beautifully.
If your home’s eyebrow windows are 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 larger or are in a heavily 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 shutter louvers on the eyebrow window 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 added to arched windows either by itself or partnered with another window covering. The window film will block UV rays that come through the windows to keep your irreplaceable belongings from discoloring. One downside of window tint is that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window treatments.
