Skylight Window Treatments for Detroit Homes

Steve Hill

What Detroit area homeowner doesn’t love the feeling of sunlight coming in from their skylight windows? Skylights bring a uniqueness to your home that no other kind of window can.

Skylight shutters

Dress up your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. We recommend using skylight shutters or skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Detroit


Detroit plantation shutters are a great option for skylight windows. Plantation shutters combine elegance and function in a way no other window covering for skylights can. Just look at the benefits shutters offer:

  • Minimal, beautiful style - Take it from us–bold, overdesigned window treatments don’t belong with 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 window trim and walls. Plantation shutters have a timeliness to them that gives your skylights an elegant feel.

  • Minimal maintenance - Most people with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open every day, which means they never have to worry about adjusting them. But if you need to adjust them, you can easily do so using a reach pole that we’ll offer at no charge!

  • Temperature and light control - Skylights are exposed to more light than other window types, so controlling the amount of light the space gets is a big benefit. You can adjust plantation shutters to any angle you want, from completely open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also protect against heat transfer better than any other window treatment on the market.

Skylight Shades for Detroit

Shutters aren’t the only option for skylight windows. We also enjoy seeing custom shades in Detroit skylights.

  • No hassle - Avoid the trouble of pulling cords and the sight of cords dangling with motorized shades. When you put your shades on a track system, they’ll stay angled with your windows. And if your skylights are low enough, you can choose top-down/bottom-up roller shades to control by hand.

  • Go as thin or thick as you want - Get skylight shades in a variety of styles, ranging from thin sheer shades that offer plenty of sunlight to blackout shades to reclaim your space.

  • Almost unlimited color and style options - Skylight shades come in an enormous color palette, with many fabrics to choose from, as well as hardware and accent options to fit your needs.

  • Get light, but not too much light - 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!
