Window Treatments for Tall Windows in Detroit

Steve Hill

Many homes around Detroit have a single window or set of windows that sits high up on the wall near where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so large that it may be out of reach. While these windows are unique and stunning, they might cause headaches when looking for high ceiling window treatments.

But there’s no need to worry - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters Detroit has run into that wasn’t gorgeous by the time we were finished with it. Let’s examine some of the best possibilities for window treatments for the tall and high ceiling windows in your Detroit house.

High Ceiling Plantation Shutters

When it comes to high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters ought to be one of your first selections for those windows. Typically the first question about window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How will I open and shut it?” For shutters, that’s rarely a concern, as it’s typical to keep the louvers set at one perfect angle at all times, so they can let in the perfect amount of light while still maintaining the privacy you need.

If frequent louver adjustment is needed, don’t worry about breaking out the step stool. We’ll give you a telescoping pole to move the tilt rod, giving you easy control over your shutters. And when you’re done, the pole telescopes down to fit in your closet until the time comes to adjust the shutters again.

An additional headache that can come with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. Due to their material, color, and angled construction, Polywood® plantation shutters don’t need to be cleaned as frequently as other window treatments. And when it comes time to clean, every part of the shutter can easily be wiped with a duster, without moving or taking the shutters down.

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