eyebrow arch window

(Ohio)

Sillhouette open

Sillhouette open Silhouette closed

I used silhouette for my eyebrow arch window. I have silhouette under it so it looks very good.

The only problem is that the vanes don't close (see the second picture) but the sheer fabric still blocks the sun so its OK. About privacy it's not such a big problem since it is such a small space so high up.

I was considering get honeycomb shades which could open and close but I liked the silhouette so much better and like I said before privacy is not such an issue (it's in the foyer) so I'm glad I chose this.

Good Choice!
by: The Window Treatment Expert

It sounds like you put in a lot of thought in your choice of window treatment. With the Silhouette the grills and the architectural look of the window is kept intact.

Enjoy!

I did an eyebrow arch window and used flex rod and hung PP3 sheers on the window. It looked nice, the client liked puddling (on the sides) and I like the clean line of straight to the floor (in the center). But it worked for her.

I don't see the point of adding the Silhouette to the eyebrow window. You didn't achieve anything by adding it -- It's not difusing light and it takes away from the architectural detail of the eyebrow. If you can't get light difusion, what's the point?

You can use Bridgeway shutters or duettes for customizing the arch and achieving light blockage.

Silhouette
by: Mary

BTW Silhouette does diffuse the light so Linda's choice does achieve that. (Diffusing means making light less strong - which is fine if complete privacy is not necessary.)

About Duette and Bridgeway shutters, I don't understand how they keep the architectural detail more than silhouette.

Information I just received about eyebrow windows
by: Frannie

Looks like custom interior shutters will be the answer for me. I have been trying to solve my window treatment problem for some time now. I have "googled" and searched and figured I would have to put a curtain up high to hide the arch inside. I felt this defeated the purpose of the window. I was told at Home Depot that most people either use a custom shade or interior shutters. I did find that you can have blinds made to fit the curve. My window faces east, gets morning sun, and is open to the front of my home--so privacy is an issue. I'll post a picture as soon as the shutters are installed. Expensive but worth it.

Hi Frannie

Did you have your shutters installed yet?

If yes we'd love to see them. You can post a photo of them here.

Eyebrow arch dilema
by: Denise

I got conflicting information about ordering custom pleated shades for my eyebrow arch window. Lowe's said that Bali only makes them stationary. I really want them to be fully operational.
JCPenney said Bali can make it operational, opening from the top down. I gave JCPenney the template and placed the order. But I am concerned that it will, in fact, be stationary when the order arrives. I don't want to be stuck paying for something that is not as expected. I still have time to cancel the order.
What are my alternatives for blocking the morning sun but still being able to expose the window later?
Wood shutters doesn't do it for me.

Top Down Eyebrow Shade
by: Anonymous

I am currently installing an eyebrow box window. The glass is one piece so the window treatment need start at the top and lower to the very bottom of the window. Would anyone know if that is possible?
