Window Treatments for High Ceiling Windows in Raleigh

October 10, 2016

Several homes in Raleigh have a particular window or assortment of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall just short of where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so large that it’s out of arm’s length. While these windows are unique and gorgeous, they may also be a source of stress when shopping for high ceiling window treatments.

But there’s no need to worry - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters Raleigh has run into that wasn’t beautiful by the time we were finished with it. Let’s learn about a few of the best options for window coverings for the tall windows in your Raleigh house.

Tall Window Plantation Shutters

When the subject is high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your first selections for those windows. Typically the first question about window treatments for a tall or high window is “How will I operate it?” For shutters, that’s almost never a concern, as it’s typical to keep the louvers set at one desireable angle all the time, so the perfect amount of light is let in while at the same time keeping the privacy you need.

If periodic louver movement is necessary, there’s no need to get out the stepladder. We’ll give you an adjustable pole to adjust the tilt rod, giving you complete control over the lighting. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole collapses to fit in your closet until you’re ready to use it again.

An additional headache that can come with high ceiling window treatments is cleaning them, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. With their material, color, and angled construction, Polywood® plantation shutters need cleaning much less often than other window treatments. And when it comes time to clean, every part of the shutter can be cleaned with a simple cloth, without having to move the shutters.

All of these benefits, combined with interior shutters’ unrivaled energy efficiency, make shutters a superb fit for high ceiling windows.
