Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldn't Be Tricky

January 06, 2017

Eyebrow windows are a type of specialty windows which can be found in Fort Myers homes and can be a challenge to cover with window treatments because of to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the usual 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 choosing coverings for eyebrow windows is to consider your window’s function, size, and location. Big eyebrow windows in bedrooms or common areas should have some kind of covering to adjust for light as well as match your home’s décor. Most similar windows in common areas are set atop a larger standard window. So you’ll want a window treatment that covers and accentuates both types of windows accordingly.

If your windows happen to be mini dormers whose design 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 youreyebrow windows are bigger or are in a frequently used room on your upper floor, you might consider covering them to add more privacy.

Custom-built Plantation Shutters

Our number one recommendation 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. Usually, the louvers on your shutter can be arranged horizontally or fanned out into a sunburst. Every shutter we make is custom-built to fit any window’s curve by utilizing advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters are available in five shades of white and natural wood colors, as well as a number of paints to coordinate with your existing home design. If you prefer a 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 paired with another window treatment. The window film will block UV rays that come through the windows to protect your irreplaceable belongings from becoming washed out. A drawback of window film is the fact that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window treatments.
