Window Treatments for Tall Windows in Philadelphia

Holly Perron

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

But don’t worry - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters Philadelphia has run into that we haven’t been able to turn into something stunning. Let’s take a look at some of the best options 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 picks for those windows. Most times the first question about window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How do you operate it?” If you choose shutters, that’s rarely a concern, since it’s typical to keep the louvers set at a single, specific angle all the time, 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 needed, you won’t need to break out the ladder. We’ll give you 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 is common with high ceiling window treatments is cleaning them, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. Due to their angled construction, material, and color, Polywood® plantation shutters require cleaning much less frequently than other window treatments. And when it comes time 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.

Automatic Shades Make High Windows A Breeze
