Eyebrow Window Treatments Don't Have to Be a Challenge

January 06, 2017

Eyebrow windows are a style of specialty windows that can be found in homes in Clearwater and are a challenge to cover with window treatments due to their shape. Their signature shape of being long and curved up top means that the typical rectangular shape of shades or drapes hide their curves and the architectural interest they bring to your home. So it’s best to find a window treatment that can complement your window’s shape. 

The Specifics of Your Window

The first step in choosing eyebrow window treatments is to consider your window’s location, function and size. Large eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or living areas should have some type of covering to adjust for light as well as accentuate your home’s décor. Most similar windows in common areas are set atop a larger rectangular window. So you might benefit from a window treatment that protects and integrates both types of windows beautifully.

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

Custom-built Plantation Shutters

Our first choice for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. They are able to be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a coordinated look to your windows. Most of the time, the louvers on an eyebrow shutter can be arranged horizontally or fanned out into a sunburst. Each shutter is custom-built to match any window’s curve by utilizing 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 existing home design. For a more natural wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters can also be customized to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be applied to eyebrow windows either on its own or paired with another window covering. The window film will impede light entering through the windows to keep your irreplaceable belongings from fading. One downside of window tint is the fact that it offers less privacy than other window covering.
