Window Treatments for High Windows in Clearwater

October 10, 2016

Homeowners all across Clearwater have a single window or group of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall close to the ceiling, or is so large that it’s out of reach. While these additions are unique and visually interesting, they may cause stress when shopping for high ceiling window treatments.

But don’t fret - there hasn’t been a window Sunburst Shutters Clearwater has encountered that we haven’t been able to turn into something beautiful. Let’s learn about some of the best options for window treatments for the tall and high ceiling windows in your Clearwater house.

Tall Window Plantation Shutters

For high ceiling windows, the more convenient, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your first selections for a high window treatment. Most times the first thought about window treatments for a window high up on a wall is “How do you open and shut it?” With shutters, that’s almost never a concern, since homeowners usually keep the louvers set at a single, perfect angle at all times, so the perfect amount of light is let in while at the same time keeping your privacy.

If periodic louver movement is necessary, there’s no need to get out the stepladder. We’ll offer a telescoping pole to move the tilt rod, giving you complete control over the lighting. And once finished, the pole telescopes down for easy storage until you’re ready to use it again.

Another stressor which is common with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. Due to their material, color, and angled construction, Polywood® plantation shutters don’t require cleaning as often as other window treatments. And when it comes time to clean, the entire shutter can easily be wiped with a cloth, without moving or taking the shutters down.

All of these benefits, combined with interior shutters’ unrivaled energy efficiency, make shutters a perfect fit for tall windows.

Motorized Shades Make High Windows A Breeze

What could be simpler than being able to leave your high window treatment in one spot? Moving it with the flip of a switch! That’s where motorized shades come in, bringing you contemporary looks with the convenience of modern technology.

Automated shades are a perfect partner for high ceiling windows, especially because you’re able to choose to either open or shut your shades the normal way, or remotely. Your shades have at long last entered the new age!
