Window Treatments for Tall Windows in Southern California

October 10, 2016

Homeowners all across Southern California have a particular window or group of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall close to where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so tall that it’s out of reach. While these additions are unique and gorgeous, they might also be a source of headaches when shopping for high ceiling window treatments.

But there’s no need to fret - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters Southern CA has run into that we haven’t turned into something gorgeous. Let’s take a look at a few of the best options for window treatments for the tall windows in your Southern California house.
 

Tall Window Plantation Shutters

When it comes to high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your first picks for a high window treatment. Typically the first thought about window treatments for a tall or high window is “How do you open and shut it?” If you choose shutters, that’s rarely a concern, as it’s typical to keep the louvers set at a single, desireable angle permanently, so the perfect amount of light is let in while also keeping the privacy you need.

If frequent louver adjustment is necessary, don’t worry about breaking out the step stool. We’ll provide you with a telescoping pole to tweak the tilt rod, giving you easy control over your shutters. And once finished, the pole telescopes down for easy storage until the time comes to adjust the shutters again.

Another stressor that is common with high ceiling window treatments is when it comes time to clean, just one more reason to choose plantation shutters. Because of their angled construction, material, and color, Polywood® plantation shutters don’t require cleaning as often as other window treatments. And when the time does come to clean, the louvers and frame can be cleaned with a simple cloth, without the hassle of taking down the shutter.

All of these benefits, coupled with insulating shutters’ excellent energy efficiency, make shutters a perfect fit for high ceiling windows.

Motorized shades can be a perfect match for high ceiling windows, especially since you can choose to either open and close your shades by hand, or with a control device. Your window treatments have at long last entered the 21st century!
