George Christ

What Minneapolis area homeowner doesn’t love how sunlight feels streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights give a special something to your home that no other type of window can.

Skylight shutters

Dress up your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. Our recommendations are skylight shutters and skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Minneapolis


Minneapolis plantation shutters are a great option for skylight windows. Interior shutters combine elegance and function like no other window covering for skylights can. Take a look at the advantages shutters offer:

  • Streamlined, graceful looks - Believe us–bold, complicated window treatments don’t blend in with skylights. With shutters, you can pick from a range of natural wood tones and neutral stains, the type of materials that seamlessly blend into your windows and trim. Plantation shutters have that classic look which gives your skylights an elegant feel.

  • Easy maintenance - Most homeowners with skylight shutters keep the louvers tilted slightly open every day, and so they never have to worry about adjusting them. But if you want to adjust them, it’s simple to do so by using a reach pole that we’ll give to you for free!

  • Control over light and heat - Skylights receive more sunlight than any other window type, so controlling the amount of light you get is a big plus. You can adjust plantation shutters to any angle you want, from all the way open to complete darkness. Polywood® shutters also prevent heat transfer better than any other window treatment.

Skylight Shades for Minneapolis

Shutters aren’t your only choice for skylight windows. We also love to see custom shades in Minneapolis skylights.

  • Low hassle - Don’t worry about the trouble of pulling cords and the eyesore of dangling cords with motorized shades. By putting your shades on a track system, they won’t fall down. And if your skylights are within reach, you can choose top-down/bottom-up roller shades to operate by hand.

  • Go as thin or thick as you want - Get skylight shades in a number of options, ranging from thin sheer shades that offer plenty of sunlight to blackout shades to reclaim your space.

  • Nearly endless color and style options - Skylight shades come in a large color palette, with many different fabrics to custom build your shades, as well as hardware and accent options to fit the mood you’re going for.

  • Get light, but not too much light - Shades let you block the harshest light that comes through your skylight windows while still letting light filter through. You’ll have total control!
