Skylight Window Treatments for Houston Homes

Cory Cryer

What Houston homeowner doesn’t enjoy the look and feel of sunlight streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights bring a uniqueness to your house that no other style of window can.

Skylight shutters

Dress up 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. Custom shutters combine elegance and function like no other window treatment for skylights can. Take a look at the advantages shutters provide:

  • Minimal, elegant looks - Take it from us–gaudy, 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 materials that match your window trim and walls. Plantation shutters have that classic look which gives your skylights an elegant feel.

  • Minimal maintenance - Most people with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open all day, which means they don’t have to worry about 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 other types of windows, so having the option to control how much light the space gets is a big benefit. You can tilt plantation shutters to fit your needs, from all the way open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also block heat better than other window treatments available.

Skylight Shades for Houston

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

  • Minimal hassle - Don’t worry about the hassle 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 adjust 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 reclaim your space.

  • Large variety of color and style options - Skylight shades are available 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 let you block the harshest light that passes through your skylight windows while still letting some in. You’ll have total control!
