Window Treatments for High Windows in Minneapolis

October 10, 2016

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 windows are unique and visually interesting, they may 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 learn about some of the best choices for window coverings for the tall and high ceiling windows in your Minneapolis house.
 

High Ceiling Plantation Shutters

When it comes to 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 tall or high window is “How will I open and shut it?” If you choose shutters, that’s hardly a concern, since it’s typical to keep the louvers placed at a single, perfect angle all the time, so the perfect amount of light comes in while at the same time keeping the privacy you need.

If regular louver movement is desired, don’t worry about breaking out the step stool. We’ll give you 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 need it again.

An additional headache which goes along with high ceiling window treatments is when it comes time to clean, just one more reason to choose plantation shutters. Because of their color, the angled construction, and material, 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 benefits, coupled with insulating shutters’ unmatched energy efficiency, make shutters a perfect fit for high ceiling windows.

Automated Shades Make High Ceiling Windows A Breeze
