Window Treatments for Tall Windows in Detroit

October 10, 2016

Many homes around Detroit have that one window or group of windows that sits high up on the wall close to where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so large that it may be out of reach. While these additions are unique and beautiful, they might cause headaches when shopping for high ceiling window treatments.

But there’s no need to worry - there hasn’t been a window Sunburst Shutters Detroit has run into that wasn’t gorgeous by the time we were through 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 the subject is high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters ought to be one of your first picks for those windows. Typically the first question about window treatments for a tall or high window is “How will I operate it?” For shutters, that’s rarely a concern, as most people keep the louvers set at one perfect angle all the time, so they can let in the perfect amount of light while still maintaining the privacy you need.

If frequent louver adjustment is desired, don’t worry about breaking out the step stool. We’ll give you a telescoping pole to adjust 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 is common with high ceiling window treatments is when it comes time to clean, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. Due to their material, color, and angled construction, Polywood® plantation shutters need cleaning much less frequently than other window treatments. And when it comes time to clean, the louvers and frame 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.

Motorized Shades Make Tall Windows Easy
