Eyebrow Window Treatments Shouldnt Be a Challenge

Spencer Madsen

Eyebrow windows are a style of arched windows that can be found in homes in Boise and can be a challenge to accessorize with window coverings due to their shape. Their signature long, curved shape means that the traditional square shape of shades or drapes hide their curves and the aesthetics they add to your home. So it’s best to find an eyebrow window treatment that can be customized to your window’s shape. 

The Specifics of Your Window

The first step in picking eyebrow window treatments is to consider the window’s function, location, and size. 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 eyebrow windows in common areas are set above a larger standard window. So you’ll want a window treatment that covers and accentuates both types of windows beautifully.

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

Custom-built Plantation Shutters

Polywood® plantation shutters are our primary recommendation for eyebrow windows. These shutters are able to be used on both upper eyebrow windows and lower square windows to give a coordinated look to your windows. Most of the time, the louvers on an eyebrow shutter can be arranged horizontally or fanned out into a sunburst. Each shutter is custom-built to match any window’s unique curves using advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters are available in five stains of white and natural wood colors, and a wide array of paints to coordinate with your existing home design. If you prefer a wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters are also able to be custom-built to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be applied to eyebrow windows either on its own or paired with another window treatment. The window film will block UV rays that come through the windows to protect your furniture and carpet from discoloring. One downside of window tint is that it offers less privacy than other window treatments.
