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 usual rectangular 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 be customized to your window’s shape.
The Window’s Location, Size, and Function
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 match your home’s décor. Many similar windows in living areas are set atop a larger standard window. So you may need a window treatment that protects and integrates both kinds of windows beautifully.
If you happen to have eyebrow windows as mini dormers whose purpose is to let light into the attic, then it might not be necessary to cover these windows unless you want to add appeal to your home’s exterior. 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
Polywood® plantation shutters are our primary pick for eyebrow windows. 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 style. For a more natural wood look, Ovation® plantation shutters can also be built to fit eyebrow windows.
Window Film or Tint
Window film or tint can be added to eyebrow windows either by itself or paired with another window covering. The window film will block light entering through the windows to keep your furniture and carpet from becoming washed out. One disadvantage of window tint is that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
