Skylight Window Treatments for Houston Homes

October 22, 2018

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

Be sure to outfit your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. Our top recommendations are skylight shutters and skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Houston


Houston plantation shutters are a fantastic choice for skylight windows. Plantation shutters combine elegance and function like no other window treatment for skylights can. Take a look at the advantages shutters provide:

  • Minimal, elegant looks - Believe us–bold, complicated window treatments don’t usually look great in skylights. With shutters, you can have your pick from an array of natural wood tones and neutral stains, the kind of looks that seamlessly blend into your trim and walls. Plantation shutters have a timeliness to them that gives your skylights a touch of elegance.

  • Low maintenance - Most people with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open all day, so they don’t have to bother with adjusting them. But if you would like to adjust them, it’s simple to do so by using a reach pole that we’ll provide you with without charge!

  • 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 big benefit. You can tilt plantation shutters to any angle you want, from all the way open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also prevent heat transfer better than other window treatments on the market.

Skylight Shades for Houston

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

  • Minimal hassle - Avoid the trouble of pulling cords and the look 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, opt for top-down/bottom-up roller shades to operate by hand.

  • Go as thin or thick as you want - There are many styles for skylight shades, from thin sheer shades that let in plenty of light to blackout shades to keep your privacy.

  • Large variety of color and style options - Skylight shades are offered in a huge color palette, with many fabrics to match your style, as well as hardware and accent options to accentuate your windows.

  • Control your lighting - Shades help you block the harshest light that passes through your skylight windows while still allowing light to come in. You’ll have total control!
