Window Treatments for High Windows in Boston

October 10, 2016

Many homes around Boston have that one window or group of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall near where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so tall that its height puts it out of reach. While these windows are distinctive and gorgeous, they might also be a cause for headaches when looking for high ceiling window treatments.

But don’t worry - there hasn’t been a window Sunburst Shutters Boston has seen that we haven’t turned into something stunning. Let’s examine a few of the best choices for window treatments for the high ceiling windows in your Boston home.
 

Tall Window 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 primary choices for a high window treatment. Most times 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 desireable angle permanently, so they can let in the perfect amount of light while still maintaining your privacy.

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

One of the biggest hassles that is common 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 often than other window treatments. And when you do need to clean, the louvers and frame 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 great fit for high windows.
