Window Treatments for High Windows in Philadelphia

October 10, 2016

Many homes around Philadelphia have that one window or group of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall just short of the ceiling, or is so tall that its height puts it out of arm’s length. While these additions are unique and gorgeous, they might cause stress when shopping for high ceiling window treatments.

But there’s no need to worry - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters Philadelphia has encountered that we haven’t been able to turn into something stunning. Let’s take a look at some of the best choices for window coverings for the high ceiling windows in your Philadelphia home.

Plantation Shutters For High Ceiling Windows

For high ceiling windows, the more convenient, the better. That’s why plantation shutters ought to be one of your foremost selections for those windows. Usually the first question about window treatments for a tall or high window is “How do you operate it?” If you choose shutters, that’s rarely a concern, since most people keep the louvers set at a single, specific angle at all times, so they can let in just the right amount of light while at the same time keeping the privacy you need.

If frequent louver movement is desired, you won’t need to break out the step stool. We’ll provide you with an adjustable pole to tweak the tilt rod, giving you total control over the lighting. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole collapses for easy storage until the time comes to adjust the shutters again.

One of the biggest hassles which can come with high ceiling window treatments is cleaning them, just one more reason to go with plantation shutters. Due to their angled construction, material, and color, Polywood® plantation shutters require cleaning much less frequently than other window treatments. And when the time does come to clean, every part of the shutter can easily be wiped with a cloth, without having to move the shutters.

All of these perks, combined with insulating shutters’ excellent energy efficiency, make for a great fit for tall windows.

Automated Shades Make High Windows A Breeze
