Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldn’t Be a Hassle

Blake Jarman

Eyebrow windows are a kind of arched windows which are found in homes in Raleigh and are a challenge to add window treatments to because of to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the typical rectangular shape of blinds, draperies, and shades hide their curves and the architectural interest 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 picking coverings for eyebrow windows is to think about the window’s location, function and size. Big eyebrow windows in bedrooms or common areas should have some type of covering to control for light and match your home’s décor. Most eyebrow windows in living areas are set above a larger rectangular window. So you may need a window treatment that protects and integrates both kinds of windows beautifully.

If your windows happen to be mini dormers whose job is to let light into an upstairs room, then you may not need to add a window treatment unless you wish to add appeal to your home’s exterior. However, if your windows are larger or are in a commonly used room upstairs, consider covering them to have control over light levels and privacy.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Polywood® plantation shutters are our first recommendation for eyebrow windows. These shutters can be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a coordinated look to your windows. Usually, the louvers on your shutter can either be arranged in a sunburst shape or horizontally. Every shutter we make is customized to fit any window’s individual shape using advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered in five stains of white and natural wood colors, and a wide array of paints to coordinate with your style. For a more natural wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters are also able to be 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 covering. The window film will block light entering through the windows to keep your irreplaceable belongings from fading. One disadvantage of window tint is the fact that it offers less privacy than other window treatment options.
