Skylight Window Treatments for Boston Homes

October 22, 2018

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

Be sure to outfit 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 option for skylight windows. Plantation shutters blend elegance and function like no other window treatment for skylights can. Here are the advantages shutters provide:

  • Minimal, graceful looks - Take it from us–bright, overdesigned window treatments don’t match skylights. With shutters, you can pick from a variety of organic wood tones and neutral stains, the kind of materials that match your trim and walls. Plantation shutters have a timeless style that gives your skylights an elegant feel.

  • Low maintenance - Most people with skylight shutters keep the louvers tilted slightly open all 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 give to you for free!

  • Control over light and heat - Skylights get more light than other types of windows, so being able to control how much sunlight you get is a big plus. You can adjust plantation shutters to any angle you want, from completely open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also prevent heat transfer better than any other window treatment on the market.

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 hassle of pulling cords and the sight of cords dangling 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, you can go with top-down/bottom-up roller shades to adjust 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!
