Eyebrow Window Treatments Dont Have to Be Tricky

Gary Harding

Eyebrow windows are a style of specialty windows which are found in Colorado Springs homes and can be a challenge to accessorize with window coverings because of to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the traditional rectangular shape of blinds and shades hide their curves and the aesthetics they add to your home. So you’ll want an eyebrow window treatment that can complement your window’s shape. 

The Specifics of Your Window

The first step in choosing coverings for eyebrow windows is to think about the window’s size, function, and location. Big eyebrow windows in bedrooms or living areas should have some sort of covering to control for light and accentuate your home’s décor. Many eyebrow windows in common areas are set on top of a larger standard window. So you might benefit from a window treatment that covers and integrates both types of windows seamlessly.

If you happen to have eyebrow windows as mini dormers whose job is to let light into the attic, then you might not need to add a window treatment unless you wish to add curb appeal from the outside looking in. Though, if youreyebrow windows are bigger or are in a commonly used room upstairs, you may want to think about covering them to add more privacy.

Custom-built Plantation Shutters

Polywood® plantation shutters are our first choice for eyebrow windows. They are able to be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a coordinated look to your windows. In most cases, the louvers on an eyebrow shutter can be arranged horizontally or fanned out into a sunburst. Every shutter we make is customized to fit any window’s curve by way of advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered in five stains of white and natural wood colors, as well as a variety of paints to match with your existing home design. 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 put on arched windows either by itself or partnered with another window treatment. The window film will impede light entering through the windows to keep your irreplaceable belongings from fading. A drawback of window film is that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window treatments.
