Window Treatments for High Ceiling Windows in Raleigh

Blake Jarman

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 its height puts it out of arm’s length. While these additions are unique and gorgeous, they might also be a source of stress when looking for high ceiling window treatments.

But there’s no need to worry - there hasn’t been a 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 choices for window coverings for the tall windows in your Raleigh house.

High Ceiling Plantation Shutters

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

If regular louver movement is necessary, don’t worry about breaking out the stepladder. We’ll provide you with an adjustable pole to move 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 need 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. Due to 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, the louvers and frame can be cleaned with a simple cloth, without having to move the shutters.

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