Skylight Window Treatments for Austin Homes

Tyler Jorgensen

What Austin area homeowner doesn’t love how sunlight feels streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights bring a uniqueness to your house that other windows can’t provide.

Skylight shutters

Put the spotlight on your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. Our recommendations are skylight shutters and skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Austin


Austin plantation shutters are a great option for skylight windows. Interior shutters combine form and function in a way no other window treatment for skylights can. Here are the many advantages shutters offer:

  • Crisp, graceful looks - Take our word–gaudy, busy window treatments don’t match skylights. With shutters, you can have your pick from a variety of natural wood tones and neutral stains, the kind of looks that match your trim and walls. Plantation shutters have that classic look which gives your skylights an elegant feel.

  • Low maintenance - Most homeowners with skylight shutters keep the louvers tilted slightly open all day, which means they don’t have to remember to adjust them. But if you need to adjust them, you can easily do so with a reach pole that we’ll offer at no charge!

  • Temperature and light control - Skylights get more light than other types of windows, so having the option to control how much sunlight you get is a big benefit. You can adjust plantation shutters to fit your needs, from completely open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also block heat better than any other window treatment on the market.

Skylight Shades for Austin

Shutters aren’t the only window treatment for skylight windows. We also enjoy seeing custom shades in Austin skylights.

  • Minimal hassle - Avoid the annoyance of pulling cords and the sight of cords dangling with motorized shades. When your shades are on a track system, they’ll stay tight against your window. 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 options, ranging from thin sheer shades that allow for plenty of light to blackout shades to reclaim your space.

  • Nearly endless color and style options - Skylight shades are offered in an enormous color palette, with many materials to custom build your shades, as well as hardware and accent options to fit your needs.

  • Control your lighting - Shades help you block the harshest light coming through your skylight windows while still letting light filter through.
