Eyebrow Window Treatments Dont Have to Be a Challenge

Dan Taylor

Eyebrow windows are a style of specialty windows which can be found in homes in Atlanta and are 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 traditional rectangular shape of blinds, draperies, 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 Window’s Location, Size, and Function

The first step in finding coverings for eyebrow windows is to consider your window’s function, location, and size. Large eyebrow windows in bedrooms or common areas should have some kind of covering to adjust for light as well as accentuate your home’s décor. Many similar windows in living areas are set atop a larger rectangular window. So you’ll want a window treatment that protects and integrates both kinds 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 wish to add curb appeal from the exterior. Though, if youreyebrow windows are bigger or are in a commonly used room upstairs, you may want to think about covering them to have control over light levels and privacy.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Polywood® plantation shutters are our first choice for eyebrow windows. These shutters 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 an eyebrow shutter can either be arranged in a sunburst shape or horizontally. Every shutter we make is custom assembled to match any window’s unique curves by utilizing advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered in five shades of white and natural wood colors, and a number of paints to coordinate with your home’s décor. If you prefer a wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters are also able to be customized to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be applied to eyebrow windows either by itself or alongside another window treatment. The window film will reduce UV rays that come through the windows to keep your irreplaceable belongings from becoming washed out. One downside of window film is that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window treatments.
