Tyler Jorgensen

Eyebrow windows are a kind of specialty windows that are found in Oklahoma City homes and are a challenge to accessorize with window coverings because of to their shape. Their signature shape of being long and curved up top means that the usual square shape of blinds, draperies, and shades hide their curves and the aesthetics they add to your home. So you’ll need an eyebrow window treatment that can be customized to your window’s shape. 

The Location, Size, and Function of Your Window

The first step in choosing coverings for eyebrow windows is to think about the window’s size, function, and location. Large eyebrow windows that are in bedrooms or common areas should have some kind of covering to adjust for light as well as coordinate with your home’s décor. Most eyebrow windows in living areas are set atop a larger standard window. So you might benefit from a window treatment that covers and accentuates both kinds of windows beautifully.

If your home’s eyebrow windows are 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 appeal to your home’s exterior. However, if your windows are bigger or are in a commonly used room upstairs, you may want to think about covering them for privacy and light control.

Custom-built Plantation Shutters

Our first recommendation for eyebrow windows is Polywood® plantation shutters. They are able to 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 either be arranged in a sunburst shape or horizontally. Every shutter we make is customized to match your window’s unique curves by way of advanced templating technology.

Polywood shutters can be ordered in five stains of white and natural wood colors, as well as a number 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 alongside another window covering. The window film will impede UV rays that come through the windows to protect your belongings such as photographs and furniture from fading. A drawback of window film is that it doesn’t offer as much privacy as other window covering.
