High Ceiling Plantation Shutters

When the subject is high ceiling windows, the less hassle, the better. That’s why plantation shutters ought to be one of your first choices for a high window treatment. Usually the first thought about window treatments for a tall or high window is “How will I open and close it?” For shutters, that’s hardly a concern, since most people keep the louvers set at one perfect angle permanently, so they can let in the perfect amount of light while also maintaining the privacy you need.

If regular louver adjustment is necessary, don’t worry about breaking out the stepladder. We’ll give you an adjustable pole to adjust the tilt rod, giving you easy control over your shutters. And when you’re done, the pole collapses for easy storage until you’re ready to use it again.

One of the biggest hassles that can come with high ceiling window treatments is cleaning them, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. Because of their angled construction, material, and color, Polywood® plantation shutters require cleaning much less frequently than other window treatments. And when you do need to clean, every part of the shutter can be cleaned with a simple cloth, without moving or taking the shutters down.

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