Window Treatments for High Windows in Houston

October 10, 2016

Many homes around Houston have that one window or group of windows that sits high up on the wall close to the ceiling, or is so large that its height puts it out of reach. While these windows are distinctive and gorgeous, they may also be a cause for headaches when looking for high ceiling window treatments.

But that’s no reason to fret - there hasn’t been a window Sunburst Shutters Houston has seen that wasn’t gorgeous by the time we were through with it. Let’s learn about a few of the best possibilities for window coverings for the tall windows in your Houston house.
 

High Ceiling Plantation Shutters

On the matter of high ceiling windows, the less hassle, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your primary choices for those windows. Most times the first concern with window treatments for a window high up on a wall is “How do you open and close it?” If you choose shutters, that’s hardly a concern, since most people have the louvers set at a single, specific angle at all times, so just the right amount of light is let in while at the same time maintaining the privacy you need.

If periodic louver movement is desired, you won’t need to break out the stepladder. We’ll give you a telescoping pole to adjust the tilt rod, giving you total control over the lighting. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole collapses for easy storage until you’re ready to use it again.

One of the biggest hassles that goes along with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, another reason to pick plantation shutters. Due to their color, the angled construction, and material, Polywood® plantation shutters require cleaning much less frequently than other window treatments. And when you do need to clean, every part of the shutter can easily be wiped with a cloth, without moving or taking the shutters down.

All of these features, combined with interior shutters’ excellent energy efficiency, make them a superb fit for tall windows.

Automated Shades Make Tall Windows A Breeze
