Window Treatments for High Ceiling Windows in Fort Myers

October 10, 2016

Homeowners all across Fort Myers have a single window or set of windows that sits high up on the wall close to where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so large that it’s out of arm’s length. While these high ceiling windows are distinctive and gorgeous, they may cause headaches when shopping for high ceiling window treatments.

But don’t fret - there isn’t a window Sunburst Shutters Fort Myers has run into that we haven’t turned into something gorgeous. Let’s take a look at a few of the best choices for window coverings for the tall and high ceiling windows in your Fort Myers house.
 

Plantation Shutters For High Ceiling Windows

For high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your primary selections for a high window treatment. Usually the first concern with window treatments for a tall or high window is “How do you open and shut it?” For shutters, that’s almost never a concern, since most people keep the louvers placed at a single, perfect angle at all times, so just the right amount of light is let in while at the same time protecting your privacy.

If frequent louver movement is desired, there’s no need to get out the ladder. We’ll offer a telescoping pole to move the tilt rod, giving you total control over your shutters. And once finished, the pole telescopes down for easy storage until you’re ready to use it again.

Another stressor that goes along with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, another reason to pick plantation shutters. With their angled construction, material, and color, Polywood® plantation shutters don’t need to be cleaned as often as other window treatments. And when you do need to clean, every part of the shutter can be cleaned with a simple duster, without the hassle of taking down the shutter.

All of these features, paired with insulating shutters’ top-notch energy efficiency, make for a perfect fit for high windows.

Motorized Shades Make High Windows A Breeze
