Skylight Window Treatments for Philadelphia Homes

October 22, 2018

What Philadelphia area homeowner doesn’t enjoy how sunlight feels streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights bring a special something to your house that no other kind of window can.

Dress up your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. We recommend choosing skylight shutters or skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Philadelphia


Philadelphia plantation shutters are a fantastic option for skylight windows. Plantation shutters blend form and function in a way no other window treatment for skylights can. Just look at some of the benefits shutters have to offer:

  • Crisp, elegant style - Take it from us–bright, busy window treatments don’t blend in with skylights. With shutters, you can pick from a variety of organic wood tones and neutral stains, the type of materials that go with your trim and walls. Plantation shutters have a timeliness to them that gives your skylights a touch of elegance.

  • Easy maintenance - Most homeowners with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open throughout the day, which means they don’t need 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 receive more light than any other window type, so having the option to control the amount of light the space gets is a huge benefit. You can tilt plantation shutters to fit your needs, from all the way open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also protect against heat transfer better than other window treatments available.

Skylight Shades for Philadelphia

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

  • No hassle - Don’t worry about 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.

  • Large variety of color and style options - Skylight shades come in a large color palette, with many materials to custom build your shades, 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. It’s the best of both worlds!
