Skylight Window Treatments for Raleigh Homes

October 22, 2018

What Raleigh area homeowner doesn’t enjoy how sunlight feels coming in from their skylight windows? Skylights add that extra touch to your house that other types of windows can’t provide.

Dress up your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. We recommend using skylight shutters or skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Raleigh


Raleigh plantation shutters are the perfect choice for skylight windows. Custom shutters blend elegance and function like no other window treatment for skylights can. Just look at the benefits shutters offer:

  • Crisp, beautiful looks - Believe us–bright, complicated window treatments don’t match skylights. With shutters, you can choose from a variety of natural wood tones and neutral stains, the type of materials that match your trim and walls. Plantation shutters have a timeless style that gives your skylights an elegant touch.

  • Minimal maintenance - Most people with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open every day, which means they don’t need to remember to adjust them. But if you want to adjust them, you can easily do so with a reach pole that we’ll give to you for free!

  • Control over light and heat - Skylights receive more light than any other window type, so being able to control how much light the space gets is a big plus. You can tilt plantation shutters to fit your needs, from all the way open to complete darkness. Polywood® shutters also block heat better than other window treatments on the market.

Skylight Shades for Raleigh

Shutters aren’t the only window treatment for skylight windows. We also love to see custom shades in Raleigh skylights.

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

  • Go as thin or thick as you want - Get skylight shades in a variety of styles, ranging from thin sheer shades that offer plenty of sunlight to blackout shades to reclaim your space.

  • Large variety of color and style options - Skylight shades are available in a huge color palette, with many materials to choose from, as well as hardware and accent options to accentuate your windows.

  • Control your lighting - Shades let you block the strongest light that passes through your skylight windows while still allowing light to come in. It’s the best of both worlds!
