Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldn't Be Difficult
Eyebrow windows are a style 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 typical 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 Window’s Location, Size, and Function
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 should have some kind of covering to adjust for light as well as coordinate with your home’s décor. Many similar windows in living areas are set on top of a larger rectangular window. So you may need a window treatment that covers and matches both sets of windows accordingly.
If your windows happen to be 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 your windows are larger or are in a heavily used room upstairs, you may want to think about covering them to add more privacy.
Custom Plantation Shutters
Polywood® plantation shutters are our primary choice for eyebrow windows. They are able to be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a coordinated look to your windows. In most cases, 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 curve 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 existing home design. 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 added to arched windows either by itself or paired with another window covering. The window film will block the UV light coming 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 covering.
