Window Treatments for Tall Windows in Southern California

Kimball Jones

Several homes in Southern California have that one window or set of windows that sits high up on the wall just short of where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so large that its height puts it out of arm’s length. While these additions are distinctive and beautiful, they may cause headaches when shopping for high ceiling window treatments.

But that’s no reason to fret - there isn’t a window Sunburst Shutters Southern CA has run into that we haven’t been able to turn into something beautiful. Let’s learn about a few of the best choices for window coverings for the tall and high ceiling windows in your Southern California house.

High Ceiling Plantation Shutters

On the matter of high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your first choices for a high window treatment. Most times the first thought about window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How will I operate it?” For shutters, that’s almost never a concern, as most people have the louvers placed at a single, desireable angle permanently, so the perfect amount of light is let in while also keeping the privacy you need.

If periodic louver adjustment is desired, you won’t need to break out the step stool. We’ll give you a telescoping pole to move the tilt rod, giving you total control over your shutters. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole telescopes down to fit in your closet until you need it again.

An additional headache which is common with high ceiling window treatments is when it comes time to clean, just one more reason to pick 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 it comes time to clean, every part of the shutter can be cleaned with a simple duster, without the hassle of taking down the shutter.

All of these perks, combined with insulating shutters’ unmatched energy efficiency, make shutters a great fit for high ceiling windows.

Automatic Shades Make High Windows Easy

What could be easier than setting your high window treatment in a single position? Adjusting it with the flip of a switch! That’s what automated shades bring to the table, adding contemporary looks with straightforward convenience.

Automated shades are a great partner for taller windows, even moreso since you’re able to choose to either open or shut your shades by hand, or with a control device. Your windows have at long last entered the new age!
