Eyebrow Window Treatments Are No Longer Difficult

Danielle Micich

Eyebrow windows are a type of specialty windows which can be found in Fort Lauderdale homes and can be 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 add to your home. So it’s best to find a window treatment that can be customized to your window’s shape. 

The Location, Size, and Function of Your Window

The first step in finding coverings for eyebrow windows is to consider the window’s size, location, and function. Large eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or living areas should have some sort of covering to adjust for light as well as coordinate with your home’s décor. Many similar windows in living areas are set atop a larger standard window. So you’ll want a window treatment that protects and integrates both types of windows beautifully.

If you happen to have eyebrow windows as 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 youreyebrow windows are larger or are in a frequently used room on your upper floor, consider covering them for privacy and light control.

Custom Plantation Shutters

Our number one recommendation for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. They can be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a coordinated look to your windows. Most of the time, the louvers on your shutter can either be arranged in a sunburst shape or horizontally. Every shutter we make is custom assembled to fit any window’s individual shape by utilizing advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered in five stains of white and natural wood colors, as well as a variety of paints to coordinate with your existing home design. For a more natural wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters can also be customized to fit eyebrow windows.

Window Film or Tint

Window film or tint can be applied to eyebrow windows either by itself or alongside another window covering. The window film will impede light entering through the windows to keep your furniture and carpet from fading. One disadvantage of window tint is that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
