Eyebrow Window Treatments Are No Longer Difficult

January 06, 2017

Eyebrow windows are a style of partly rounded windows which are found in Miami homes and are a challenge to cover with window treatments due to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the traditional square 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 Location, Size, and Function of Your Window

The first step in choosing eyebrow window treatments is to think about your window’s location, function and size. Large eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or living areas should have some kind of covering to adjust for light as well as coordinate with your home’s décor. Most eyebrow windows in living areas are set on top of a larger standard window. So you might benefit from a window treatment that protects and matches both types of windows accordingly.

If you happen to have eyebrow windows as mini dormers whose purpose is to let light into the attic, then you might not need to cover these windows unless you want to add curb appeal from the exterior. Though, if youreyebrow windows are sizeable or are in a commonly used room on your upper floor, you may want to think about covering them to have control over light levels and privacy.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Our number one choice for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. These shutters can be used on both upper eyebrow windows and lower square windows to give a coordinated look to your windows. Most of the time, the louvers on an eyebrow shutter can either be arranged in a sunburst shape or horizontally. Each shutter is custom-built to match any window’s curve by way of advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered in five shades of white and natural wood colors, as well as a number of paints to coordinate with your style. For a more natural wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters are also able to be custom-built to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be put on arched windows either by itself or alongside another window covering. The window film will reduce UV rays that come through the windows to protect your furniture and carpet from becoming washed out. One drawback of window film is that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window treatment options.
