Eyebrow Window Treatments Are No Longer Difficult

Kimball Jones

Eyebrow windows are a type of partly rounded windows that are found in San Diego homes and can be a challenge to add window treatments to due to their shape. Their signature shape of being long and curved up top means that the traditional square shape of shades or drapes hide their curves and the architectural interest they bring to your home. So it’s best to find an eyebrow window treatment that can show off 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, function, and location. Big eyebrow windows in bedrooms or living areas will need some sort of covering to adjust for light as well as accentuate your home’s décor. Most eyebrow windows in living areas are set on top of a larger standard window. So you may need a window treatment that protects and matches both sets of windows accordingly.

If your home’s eyebrow windows are mini dormers whose design is to let light into the attic, then it might not be necessary to add a window treatment unless you want to add appeal to your home’s exterior. Though, if your windows are sizeable 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. These shutters can be used on both lower square windows and the upper eyebrow window to give a coordinated look to your windows. In most cases, the louvers on your shutter can be arranged horizontally or fanned out into a sunburst. Every shutter we make is custom-built to fit any window’s curve by way of advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters are available in five shades of white and natural wood colors, and a variety of paints to coordinate with your home’s décor. 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 partnered with another window covering. The window film will block light entering through the windows to keep your irreplaceable belongings from discoloring. One drawback of window tint is the fact that it offers less privacy than other window treatment options.
