Eyebrow Window Treatments Dont Have to Be Tricky

Kasey Udy

Eyebrow windows are a kind of specialty windows which are found in homes in St. George and can be a challenge to accessorize with window coverings because of to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the typical 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 Window’s Location, Size, and Function

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 coordinate with your home’s décor. Many eyebrow windows in common areas are set on top of a larger rectangular window. So you may need a window treatment that protects and integrates both kinds of windows seamlessly.

If your windows happen to be mini dormers whose job is to let light into an upstairs room, then you might not need to cover these windows unless you want to add appeal to your home’s exterior. However, if your windows are sizeable or are in a heavily used room on your upper floor, you might consider covering them to have control over light levels and privacy.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Our number one 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 louvers on an eyebrow shutter 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 existing home design. For a more natural wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters can also 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 paired with another window covering. The window film will block UV rays that come through the windows to protect your irreplaceable belongings from becoming washed out. One downside of window tint is the fact that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
