Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldn’t Be a Hassle

Darren Wong

Eyebrow windows are a type of partly rounded windows that are found in Honolulu homes and are a challenge to accessorize with window coverings due to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the usual square shape of blinds, draperies, and shades hide their curves and the aesthetics they add to your home. So you’ll need a window treatment that can show off your window’s shape. 

The Specifics of Your Window

The first step in picking eyebrow window treatments is to think about your window’s size, location, and function. 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 standard window. So you might benefit from a window treatment that covers and accentuates 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 outside looking in. Though, 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 recommendation 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 harmonious look to your windows. In most cases, the louvers on an eyebrow shutter 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 irreplaceable belongings from fading. A drawback of window tint is the fact that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window treatment options.
