The Best Window Treatments For Tall Windows In Minneapolis

April 15, 2022

Some windows are easier to cover than others. Window treatments for tall windows in Minneapolis should look lovely and let you arrange them to manage light and privacy, even if they are tall and narrow. If blinds and curtains aren’t working, try plantation shutters. They look stunning on all types of windows and are effortless to operate and clean even on very tall windows.


Interior Shutters Look Beautiful On Every Type Of Tall Window

Not all window treatments look right on tall windows. Curtains can distort the size of the room and aluminum blinds can appear flimsy. However, custom plantation shutters look gorgeous on all shapes and sizes of tall windows. Their frame and louvered panels fit your window’s exact shape so that they don’t hide the shape of a special window. Constructed from solid materials, these shutters become an eye-catching architectural detail for the room. And you have the choice between faux-wood Polywood® shutters in a modern white paint to match your decor or classic stained hardwood shutters.

Louvered Shutters Provide Exceptional Energy Efficiency And Coverage For Tall Windows

Because interior shutters fit your windows exactly, they provide superb energy efficiency and coverage. The frame ensures no cracks and gaps around your window’s edge like you see from hanging shades, blinds, and curtains. You particularly don’t want cracks on large windows where a lot of drafts or light can sneak in. Even the louvers on top-of-the-line products like quality Polywood and hardwood shutters shut tightly to keep out more outside air and light than other window treatments on taller windows in Minneapolis do. Polywood shutters even reduce energy use and costs with their specially-designed insulating system.

Naturally, you won’t always keep your window treatments shut all day. You can easily let in natural light with the louvered shutters on your windows. Depending on the amount of sunlight you want, just pull open the panels or tilt open the louvers. You can order a divider rail that divides the shutter panels into sections for very tall windows. You can then open the top section for illumination and keep the bottom closed for privacy.


Interior Shutters Are More Simple To Clean Compared To Other Window Treatments For Tall Windows In Minneapolis

If your windows are tall, cleaning your window treatments can be challenging. No one likes taking down curtains or stretching to reach the top of a high window shade with a vacuum tool. Interior shutters don’t cause these problems. You just need a duster on an extendable pole to effortlessly dust off your shutters’ finish however tall your windows are. If you see thicker grime lower down, simply gently wipe with a damp cloth, so your shutters will gleam in no time!
