Skylight Window Treatments for Detroit Homes

October 22, 2018

What Detroit homeowner doesn’t love the look and feel of sunlight pouring in from their skylight windows? Skylights bring a special something to your home that other windows can’t provide.

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

Skylight Shutters in Detroit


Detroit plantation shutters are the perfect 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, elegant style - Believe 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 materials that seamlessly blend into your trim and walls. Plantation shutters have a timeliness to them that gives your skylights a touch of elegance.

  • Minimal maintenance - Most people with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open every day, which means they don’t need to bother with adjusting them. But if you want to adjust them, you can easily do so using a reach pole that we’ll give to you for free!

  • Temperature and light control - Skylights are exposed to more light than other window types, so controlling how much 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 available.

Skylight Shades for Detroit

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

  • No hassle - Avoid the trouble of pulling cords and the look of dangling cords 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 a number of fabrics to choose from, as well as hardware and accent options to fit the mood you’re going for.

  • Adjust 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!
