Eyebrow Window Treatments Don't Have to Be Tricky

January 06, 2017

Eyebrow windows are a style of specialty windows which are found in homes in St. George and can be a challenge to add window treatments to because of to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the usual rectangular shape of blinds, draperies, and shades hide their curves and the aesthetics they bring to your home. So you’ll need a window treatment that can show off your window’s shape. 

The Location, Size, and Function of Your Window

The first step in finding coverings for eyebrow windows is to consider the window’s location, function and size. Large eyebrow windows in bedrooms or living areas should have some sort of covering to control for light and match your home’s décor. Many eyebrow windows in common areas are set atop a larger rectangular window. So you may need a window treatment that protects and integrates both types of windows seamlessly.

If your windows happen to be mini dormers whose purpose is to let light into an upstairs room, then you might not need to cover these windows unless you want to add curb appeal from the exterior. However, if your windows are sizeable or are in a commonly used room on your upper floor, you might consider covering them for privacy and light control.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Our top choice for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. They can be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a harmonious look to your windows. Typically, the shutter louvers on the eyebrow window can either be arranged in a sunburst shape or horizontally. Each shutter is customized to match any window’s individual shape by way of advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered in five stains of white and natural wood colors, as well as a wide array of paints to coordinate with your style. 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 arched windows either on its own or alongside another window covering. The window film will block UV rays that come through the windows to protect your belongings such as photographs and furniture from fading. One downside of window tint is the fact that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
