Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldn't Be Difficult

January 06, 2017

Eyebrow windows are a type of arched windows that can be found in Las Vegas homes and are a challenge to cover with window treatments because of to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the traditional rectangular shape of blinds, draperies, and shades hide their curves and the aesthetics they bring to your home. So it’s best to find an eyebrow window treatment that can show off your window’s shape. 

The Specifics of Your Window

The first step in picking coverings for eyebrow windows is to consider your window’s size, function, and location. Big eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or common areas should have some type of covering to adjust for light as well as accentuate your home’s décor. Most eyebrow windows in living areas are set atop a larger standard window. So you’ll want a window treatment that protects and accentuates both types of windows beautifully.

If your windows happen to be 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 appeal to your home’s exterior. However, if your windows are sizeable or are in a frequently used room on your upper floor, consider covering them to have control over light levels and privacy.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Our number one choice for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. They can be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a seamless 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 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 number of paints to coordinate with your home’s décor. For a more natural wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters can also be customized to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be applied to arched windows either on its own or alongside another window treatment. The window film will impede light entering through the windows to keep your furniture and carpet from becoming washed out. One downside of window tint is that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
