October 10, 2016

Several homes in Seattle have that one window or assortment of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall near where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so large that it may be out of arm’s length. While these windows are unique and gorgeous, they might also be a source of stress when searching for high ceiling window treatments.

But there’s no need to worry - there hasn’t been a window Sunburst Shutters Washington has run into that wasn’t gorgeous by the time we were through with it. Let’s learn about some of the best possibilities for window coverings for the high ceiling windows in your Seattle home.

High Ceiling Plantation Shutters

On the matter of high ceiling windows, the more convenient, the better. That’s why plantation shutters ought to be one of your primary picks for those windows. Typically the first thought about window treatments for a window high up on a wall is “How do you operate it?” If you choose shutters, that’s rarely a concern, since it’s typical to have the louvers set at one desireable angle at all times, so the perfect amount of light is let in while still keeping the privacy you need.

If frequent louver adjustment is necessary, don’t worry about breaking out the stepladder. We’ll give you an adjustable pole to tweak the tilt rod, giving you total control over your shutters. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole telescopes down to fit in your closet until you need it again.

An additional headache which goes along with high ceiling window treatments is when it comes time to clean, another reason to pick plantation shutters. Because of their material, color, and angled construction, Polywood® plantation shutters don’t need to be cleaned as frequently as other window treatments. And when the time does come to clean, every part of the shutter can be cleaned with a simple cloth, without moving or taking the shutters down.

All of these perks, paired with interior shutters’ unmatched energy efficiency, make them a great fit for high ceiling windows.

Motorized Shades Make High Windows Easy
