Eyebrow Window Treatments Are No Longer a Challenge

Matt Thelander

Eyebrow windows are a type of specialty windows that can be found in homes in Salt Lake City and can be a challenge to accessorize with window coverings due to their shape. Their signature shape of being long and curved up top means that the usual rectangular shape of blinds, draperies, and shades hide their curves and the aesthetics they bring to your home. So you’ll need a window treatment that can show off your window’s shape. 

The Location, Size, and Function of Your Window

The first step in choosing eyebrow window treatments is to consider your window’s size, function, and location. Big eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or living areas should have some kind of covering to control for light and coordinate with your home’s décor. Many similar windows in living areas are set on top of a larger standard window. So you’ll want a window treatment that protects and integrates both kinds of windows beautifully.

If your home’s eyebrow windows are mini dormers whose design is to let light into the attic, then you might not need to cover these windows unless you wish to add curb appeal from the exterior. Though, if youreyebrow windows are bigger or are in a frequently used room upstairs, you may want to think about covering them to have control over light levels and 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 seamless 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 customized to fit your window’s curve by utilizing 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. If you prefer a 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 on its own or paired with another window treatment. The window film will block light entering through the windows to keep your belongings such as photographs and furniture from discoloring. One drawback of window tint is the fact that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
