Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldn't Be a Hassle

January 06, 2017

Eyebrow windows are a type of partly rounded windows that are found in Honolulu homes and are a challenge to add window treatments to due to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the typical square shape of blinds, draperies, and shades hide their curves and the aesthetics they add to your home. So it’s best to find a window treatment that can complement your window’s shape. 

The Specifics of Your Window

The first step in finding eyebrow window treatments is to think about your window’s function, size, and location. Large eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or living areas will need some type of covering to control for light as well as accentuate your home’s décor. Most similar windows in living areas are set above a larger rectangular window. So you might benefit from a window treatment that covers and matches both sets of windows beautifully.

If your home’s eyebrow windows are mini dormers whose purpose is to let light into the attic, then you might not need to cover these windows unless you want to add curb appeal from the exterior. Though, if your windows are bigger or are in a commonly used room upstairs, you may want to think about covering them to add more privacy.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Our top pick for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. They are able to be used on both upper eyebrow windows and lower square windows to give a seamless look to your windows. Usually, the shutter louvers on the eyebrow window can either be arranged in a sunburst shape or horizontally. Every shutter we make is customized to fit any window’s unique curves by utilizing advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered in five stains of white and natural wood colors, and a wide array of paints to coordinate 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 put on arched windows either by itself or paired with another window treatment. The window film will reduce the UV light coming through the windows to keep your belongings such as photographs and furniture from becoming washed out. A disadvantage of window tint is the fact that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
