Skylight Window Treatments for Seattle Homes

October 22, 2018

What Seattle area homeowner doesn’t love how sunlight feels streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights add a special something to your home that other types of windows can’t provide.

Be sure to outfit your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. We recommend using skylight shutters or skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Seattle

Seattle plantation shutters are a great option for skylight windows. Custom shutters combine form and function like no other window treatment for skylights can. Just look at the many benefits shutters offer:

  • Minimal, elegant looks - Believe us–bright, complicated window treatments don’t belong with skylights. With shutters, you can have your pick from a variety of organic wood tones and neutral stains, the kind of looks that seamlessly blend into your trim and walls. Plantation shutters have a classic look that gives your skylights an elegant touch.

  • Low maintenance - Most homeowners with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open every day, and so they don’t have to remember to adjust them. But if you want to adjust them, it’s simple to do so using a reach pole that we’ll provide you with without charge!

  • Control over light and heat - Skylights are exposed to more light than any other window type, so being able to control the amount of light the room gets is a huge plus. You can tilt plantation shutters to fit your needs, from completely open to complete darkness. Polywood® shutters also block heat better than any other window treatment.

Skylight Shades for Seattle

Shutters aren’t the only window treatment for skylight windows. We also enjoy seeing custom shades in Seattle skylights.

  • Minimal hassle - Avoid the trouble of pulling cords and the eyesore of dangling cords with motorized shades. By putting your shades on a track system, they’ll stay tight against your window. And if your skylights are low enough to reach, you can go with top-down/bottom-up roller shades to adjust by hand.

  • Choose your thickness - There are many options for skylight shades, from thin sheer shades that let in lots of sunlight to blackout shades to reclaim your space.

  • Almost unlimited color and style options - Skylight shades are available in an enormous color palette, with many materials to custom build your shades, as well as hardware and accent options to fit your needs.

  • Control your lighting - Shades help you block the harshest light coming through your skylight windows while still allowing light to come in. It’s the best of both worlds!
