Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldnt Be Difficult

Holly Perron

Eyebrow windows are a type of arched windows which are found in homes in New Brunswick and can be a challenge to cover with window treatments because of to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the usual rectangular shape of blinds and shades hide their curves and the architectural interest they bring to your home. So you’ll need a window treatment that can be customized to your window’s shape. 

The Specifics of Your Window

The first step in finding coverings for eyebrow windows is to think about the window’s size, function, and location. Large eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or living areas should have some kind of covering to control for light and coordinate with your home’s décor. Many eyebrow windows in common areas are set atop a larger standard window. So you’ll want a window treatment that protects and matches both kinds of windows seamlessly.

If your home’s eyebrow windows are mini dormers whose purpose is to let light into an upstairs room, then it might not be necessary to add a window treatment unless you wish to add curb appeal from the exterior. However, if your windows are bigger or are in a commonly used room on your upper floor, you may want to think about covering them to add more privacy.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Polywood® plantation shutters are our top choice for eyebrow windows. These shutters are able to be used on both upper eyebrow windows and lower square windows to give a seamless look to your windows. Usually, the louvers on an eyebrow shutter can be arranged horizontally or fanned out into a sunburst. Each shutter is customized to fit any window’s curve by way of advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters are available in five stains of white and natural wood colors, and a number of paints to match with your style. If you prefer a 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 by itself or partnered with another window treatment. The window film will impede UV rays that come through the windows to keep your furniture and carpet from becoming washed out. One drawback of window film is the fact that it offers less privacy than other window treatment options.
