Window Treatments for High Ceiling Windows in Fort Myers10/10/2016Charlie Cole and Brady Parker Many homes around Fort Myers have a single window or group of windows that sits high up on the wall near 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 might cause headaches when shopping for high ceiling window treatments. But there’s no need to fret - there isn’t a window Sunburst Shutters Fort Myers has run into that wasn’t gorgeous by the time we were done with it. Let’s examine 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 less hassle, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your first picks for a high window treatment. Most times the first question about window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How do you open and shut it?” With shutters, that’s almost never a concern, since most people keep the louvers placed at a single, perfect angle all the time, so just the right amount of light is let in while at the same time maintaining 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 need it again. Another stressor that goes along with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, another area in which plantation shutters shine. Due to 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 benefits, paired with insulating shutters’ top-notch energy efficiency, make for a great fit for high windows. Motorized Shades Make High Windows A Breeze What could be easier than leaving your high window treatment in a single spot? Opening and shutting it with the push of a button! That’s where motorized shades come in, adding trendy looks with modern convenience.
