Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldn’t Be a Challenge

Todd Hansen

Eyebrow windows are a style of partly rounded windows which are found in homes in Orlando and are a challenge to cover with window treatments due 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 it’s best to find a window treatment that can complement your window’s shape. 

The Location, Size, and Function of Your Window

The first step in finding eyebrow window treatments is to consider the window’s location, function and size. Large eyebrow windows in bedrooms or common areas should have some kind of covering to control for light as well as match your home’s décor. Most similar windows in living areas are set on top of a larger rectangular window. So you’ll want a window treatment that covers and accentuates both types of windows accordingly.

If you happen to have eyebrow windows as 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 want to add appeal to your home’s exterior. However, if your windows are bigger or are in a commonly used room upstairs, you might consider covering them to have control over light levels and privacy.

Custom-built Plantation Shutters

Our top choice for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. They can be used on both upper eyebrow windows and lower square windows to give a coordinated look to your windows. In most cases, the shutter louvers on the eyebrow window can either be arranged in a sunburst shape or horizontally. Each shutter is customized to fit any window’s curve by way of advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters are available in five shades of white and natural wood colors, as well as a wide array of paints to coordinate with your style. If you prefer a wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters can also be customized to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be put on eyebrow windows either on its own or paired with another window treatment. The window film will block UV rays that come through the windows to keep your belongings such as photographs and furniture from becoming washed out. One disadvantage of window tint is that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
