Skylight Window Treatments for Boston Homes

Holly Perron

What Boston homeowner doesn’t enjoy the warmth of sunlight pouring in from their skylight windows? Skylights give a uniqueness to your house that other windows can’t provide.

Skylight shutters

Dress up your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. Our recommendations are skylight shutters and skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Boston


Boston plantation shutters are a fantastic choice for skylight windows. Custom shutters blend elegance and function like no other window treatment for skylights can. Just look at the advantages shutters provide:

  • Minimal, graceful looks - Believe us–bright, overdesigned window treatments don’t match skylights. With shutters, you can choose from a variety of organic wood tones and neutral stains, the kind of materials that seamlessly blend into your trim and walls. Plantation shutters have a timeless style that gives your skylights a touch of elegance.

  • Minimal maintenance - Most people with skylight shutters keep the louvers tilted slightly open throughout the day, and so they don’t need to bother with adjusting them. But if you would like to adjust them, you can easily do so by using a reach pole that we’ll offer at no charge!

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

Skylight Shades for Boston

Shutters aren’t the only window treatment for skylight windows. We also enjoy seeing custom shades in Boston skylights.

  • Minimal hassle - Bypass the trouble of pulling cords and the look of dangling cords with motorized shades. When you put your shades on a track system, they’ll stay angled with your windows. And if your skylights are low enough, opt for top-down/bottom-up roller shades to operate by hand.

  • Choose your thickness - There are many options for skylight shades, ranging from thin sheer shades that let in plenty of light to blackout shades that offer privacy.

  • Almost unlimited color and style options - Skylight shades are available in an enormous color palette, with lots of materials to match your style, as well as hardware and accent options to accentuate your windows.

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