Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldn't Be a Challenge

January 06, 2017

Eyebrow windows are a type of partly rounded windows that can be found in Dallas homes and can be a challenge to cover with window treatments because of to their shape. Their signature shape of being long and curved up top means that the usual rectangular shape of blinds, draperies, and shades hide their curves and the architectural interest they add to your home. So you’ll need an eyebrow window treatment that can complement your window’s shape. 

The Window’s Location, Size, and Function

The first step in finding coverings for eyebrow windows is to consider your window’s location, size and function. Large eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or living areas should have some sort of covering to adjust for light and 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 covers and matches both types of windows seamlessly.

If your home’s eyebrow windows are mini dormers whose purpose is to let light into the attic, then it might not be necessary to add a window treatment unless you want to add curb appeal from the exterior. Though, if your windows are sizeable or are in a heavily used room on your upper floor, you may want to think about covering them for privacy and light control.

Custom-built Plantation Shutters

Our number one choice for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. These shutters are able to be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a seamless look to your windows. Typically, the louvers on an eyebrow shutter can be arranged horizontally or fanned out into a sunburst. Every shutter we make is custom assembled to match your window’s curve using advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters are available in five stains of white and natural wood colors, and a wide array of paints to coordinate with your home’s décor. If you prefer a wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters can also be built to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be applied to eyebrow windows either on its own or alongside another window treatment. The window film will block light entering through the windows to protect your irreplaceable belongings from becoming washed out. A downside of window tint is the fact that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
