Eyebrow Window Treatments Are No Longer Difficult

Steve Hill

Eyebrow windows are a type of partly rounded windows that can be found in Detroit homes and are a challenge to add window treatments to due to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the typical rectangular shape of blinds and shades hide their curves and the aesthetics they add to your home. So you’ll want a window treatment that can show off your window’s shape. 

The Specifics of Your Window

The first step in picking eyebrow window treatments is to think about the window’s size, location, and function. Large eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or common areas should have some sort of covering to adjust for light and match your home’s décor. Many similar windows in living areas are set atop a larger rectangular window. So you may need a window treatment that covers and matches both types of windows accordingly.

If your home’s eyebrow windows are mini dormers whose job is to let light into the attic, then you may not need to cover these windows unless you wish to add appeal to your home’s exterior. Though, if youreyebrow windows are larger or are in a commonly used room upstairs, you may want to think about covering them to add more privacy.

Custom-built Plantation Shutters

Our number one pick for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. They are able to be used on both upper eyebrow windows and lower square windows to give a coordinated look to your windows. Typically, the louvers on your shutter can be arranged horizontally or fanned out into a sunburst. Every shutter we make is customized to fit your window’s curve by way of 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. For a more natural wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters can also be custom-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 covering. The window film will reduce light entering through the windows to protect your irreplaceable belongings from discoloring. A disadvantage of window tint is the fact that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
