Skylight Window Treatments for Minneapolis Homes

October 22, 2018

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

Be sure to outfit your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. We recommend using skylight shutters or skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Minneapolis


Minneapolis plantation shutters are the perfect choice for skylight windows. Interior shutters blend elegance and function like no other window covering for skylights can. Take a look at the advantages shutters provide:

  • Crisp, graceful looks - Believe us–gaudy, 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 a touch of elegance.

  • Easy maintenance - Most homeowners with skylight shutters keep the louvers tilted slightly open every day, and so they don’t need to worry about adjusting them. But if you need to adjust them, it’s simple to do so by using a reach pole that we’ll offer at no charge!

  • Control over light and heat - Skylights get more sunlight than other types of windows, so controlling how much light you get is a big plus. You can adjust plantation shutters to fit your needs, from all the way open to complete darkness. Polywood® shutters also block heat better than any other window treatment.

Skylight Shades for Minneapolis

Shutters aren’t your only choice for skylight windows. We also enjoy seeing custom shades in Minneapolis skylights.

  • No hassle - Avoid the trouble of pulling cords and the eyesore of dangling cords with motorized shades. By putting your shades on a track system, they’ll stay tight against your window. And if your skylights are within reach, you can choose top-down/bottom-up roller shades to adjust 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 light to blackout shades to keep your privacy.

  • Large variety of color and style options - Skylight shades come in a huge color palette, with a number of materials to custom build your shades, as well as hardware and accent options to fit your needs.

  • Adjust your lighting - Shades let you block the harshest light that comes through your skylight windows while still letting light filter through. It’s the best of both worlds!
