Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldn’t Be Difficult

Tyler Jorgensen

Eyebrow windows are a kind of arched windows which are found in San Antonio homes and are a challenge to cover with window treatments due 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 be customized to your window’s shape. 

The Location, Size, and Function of Your Window

The first step in picking eyebrow window treatments is to think about your window’s size, location, and function. Big eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or living areas will need some sort of covering to adjust for light as well as match your home’s décor. Many similar windows in living areas are set atop a larger rectangular window. So you may need a window treatment that covers and matches both sets of windows accordingly.

If your home’s eyebrow windows are mini dormers whose job 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 your windows are larger or are in a commonly used room upstairs, you might consider covering them to add more privacy.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Our number one pick for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. They are able to 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 custom-built to fit your window’s unique curves by way of advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered in five shades of white and natural wood colors, as well as a variety of paints to match 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 arched windows either by itself or paired with another window covering. The window film will impede light entering through the windows to keep your furniture and carpet from discoloring. A downside of window tint is that it offers less privacy than other window treatment options.
