Window Treatments for Tall Windows in Houston10/10/2016Cory Cryer Many homes around Houston have a single window or group of windows that sits high up on the wall near 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 shopping 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. Tall Window Plantation Shutters On the matter of high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your first choices for those windows. Most times the first question about 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 all the time, so just the right amount of light is let in while at the same time protecting the privacy you need. If periodic louver movement is needed, you won’t need to break out the stepladder. We’ll provide you with 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 need it again. Another stressor that goes along with high ceiling window treatments is when it comes time to clean, another reason to pick plantation shutters. With their material, color, and angled construction, 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 having to move the shutters. All of these benefits, combined with plantation shutters’ excellent energy efficiency, make them a superb fit for tall windows. Automatic Shades Make Tall Windows A Breeze What could be simpler than being able to leave your high window treatment in one spot? Opening and shutting it with the flip of a switch! That’s where automated shades come in, offering chic looks with the convenience of modern technology. Motorized shades are a great partner for taller windows, even moreso since you can choose to either open and close your shades by hand, or remotely. Your window treatments have finally entered the 21st century!
