Eyebrow Window Treatments Don’t Have to Be Difficult

Bill Burke

Eyebrow windows are a type of arched windows which can be found in Indianapolis homes 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 typical rectangular shape of blinds, draperies, and shades hide their curves and the architectural interest they bring to your home. So you’ll need an eyebrow window treatment that can show off your window’s shape. 

The Window’s Location, Size, and Function

The first step in finding eyebrow window treatments is to think about the window’s size, function, and location. Big eyebrow windows in bedrooms or common areas should have some kind of covering to control for light and match your home’s décor. Many similar windows in common areas are set atop a larger rectangular window. So you may need a window treatment that covers and matches both kinds of windows accordingly.

If your home’s eyebrow windows are 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 wish to add curb appeal from the exterior. However, if youreyebrow windows are larger or are in a commonly used room upstairs, you may want to think about covering them for privacy and light control.

Custom-built Plantation Shutters

Polywood® plantation shutters are our first choice for eyebrow windows. These shutters can be used on both upper eyebrow windows and lower square windows to give a coordinated look to your windows. Most of the time, 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 shades of white and natural wood colors, and a wide array of paints to match with your style. For a more natural 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 put on eyebrow windows either by itself or paired with another window treatment. The window film will block light entering through the windows to keep your irreplaceable belongings from discoloring. One drawback of window film is that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
