Window Treatments for High Windows in Cleveland

October 10, 2016

Many homes around Cleveland have a particular window or group of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall near the ceiling, or is so large that it may be out of reach. While these additions are unique and gorgeous, they might also be a cause for headaches when shopping for high ceiling window treatments.

But don’t worry - there hasn’t been a window Sunburst Shutters Cleveland has seen that wasn’t gorgeous by the time we were done with it. Let’s learn about a few of the best possibilities for window treatments for the tall and high ceiling windows in your Cleveland home.

Tall Window Plantation Shutters

For high ceiling windows, the less hassle, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your foremost choices for those windows. Usually the first thought about window treatments for a tall or high window is “How do you open and close it?” With shutters, that’s almost never a concern, since most people have the louvers placed at a single, specific angle all the time, so they can let in the perfect amount of light while also maintaining your privacy.

If regular louver adjustment is necessary, you won’t need to break out the step stool. We’ll give you an adjustable pole to adjust the tilt rod, giving you total control over your shutters. And once finished, the pole telescopes down for easy storage until the time comes to adjust the shutters again.

One of the biggest hassles that is common with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, another area in which plantation shutters shine. Due to their color, the angled construction, and material, Polywood® plantation shutters require cleaning much less often than other window treatments. And when it comes time to clean, the louvers and frame can easily be wiped with a cloth, without the hassle of taking down the shutter.

All of these perks, paired with plantation shutters’ excellent energy efficiency, make for a great fit for tall windows.

Motorized Shades Make High Windows Easy

Automated shades are a great match for high ceiling windows, especially because you can choose to either open and close your shades the old-fashioned way, or with a control device. Your shades have finally entered the 21st century!
