Skylight Window Treatments for Philadelphia Homes

Holly Perron

What Philadelphia homeowner doesn’t enjoy how sunlight feels streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights bring a special something to your house that other types of windows can’t provide.

Skylight shutters

Dress up your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. Our recommendations are skylight shutters and skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Philadelphia


Philadelphia plantation shutters are a fantastic choice for skylight windows. Custom shutters blend style and functionality in a way no other window treatment for skylights can. Here are the many benefits shutters offer:

  • Crisp, elegant style - Take it from us–bright, busy window treatments don’t belong with skylights. With shutters, you can choose from a range of organic wood tones and neutral stains, the type of materials that go with your window trim and walls. Plantation shutters have that classic look which gives your skylights an elegant feel.

  • Easy maintenance - Most homeowners with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open all day, which means they never have to bother with adjusting them. But if you want to adjust them, it’s simple to do so using a reach pole that we’ll give to you for free!

  • Temperature and light control - Skylights get more light than any other window type, so having the option to control how much light the space gets is a huge benefit. You can tilt plantation shutters to any angle you want, from all the way open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also protect against heat transfer better than other window treatments on the market.

Skylight Shades for Philadelphia

Shutters aren’t the only option for skylight windows. We also see custom shades in Philadelphia skylights.

  • Low hassle - Avoid the trouble of pulling cords and the eyesore of dangling cords with motorized shades. By putting your shades on a track system, they’ll stay angled with your windows. And if your skylights are low enough to reach, you can choose top-down/bottom-up roller shades to adjust by hand.

  • Choose your thickness - There are many styles for skylight shades, ranging from thin sheer shades that allow for lots of light to blackout shades that offer privacy.

  • Nearly endless color and style options - Skylight shades come in a large color palette, with a number of materials to choose from, as well as hardware and accent options to fit your needs.

  • Adjust your lighting - Shades let you block the strongest light that passes through your skylight windows while still letting light filter through. You’ll have total control!
