Window Treatments for Tall Windows in Minneapolis

George Christ

Homeowners all across Minneapolis have that one window or assortment of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall just short of the ceiling, or is so large that it may be out of reach. While these additions are unique and visually interesting, they might also be a source of stress when searching for high ceiling window treatments.

But that’s no reason to fret - there isn’t a window Sunburst Shutters Minneapolis has seen that we haven’t turned into something gorgeous. Let’s take a look at some of the best choices for window coverings for the tall and high ceiling windows in your Minneapolis house.

High Ceiling Plantation Shutters

When the subject is high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your foremost picks for a high window treatment. Typically the first thought about window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How will I operate it?” If you choose shutters, that’s hardly a concern, since it’s typical to keep the louvers placed at a single, perfect angle at all times, so the perfect amount of light comes in while at the same time keeping the privacy you need.

If regular louver movement is desired, there’s no need to get out the ladder. We’ll provide you with an adjustable pole to tweak the tilt rod, giving you total control over the lighting. And once finished, the pole collapses to fit in your closet until you’re ready to use it again.

An additional headache which goes along with high ceiling window treatments is cleaning them, just one more reason to choose plantation shutters. Because of their material, color, and angled construction, Polywood® plantation shutters need cleaning much less often than other window treatments. And when the time does come to clean, the entire shutter can easily be wiped with a cloth, without having to move the shutters.

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