Skylight Window Treatments for Austin Homes

October 22, 2018

What Austin area homeowner doesn’t love the look and feel of sunlight pouring in from their skylight windows? Skylights give a uniqueness to your house that other windows can’t provide.

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 blend form and function in a way no other window treatment for skylights can. Here are some of the advantages shutters have to offer:

  • Crisp, graceful looks - Take our word–bold, overdesigned 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 materials that match your trim and walls. Plantation shutters have a timeliness to them that gives your skylights an elegant feel.

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

  • Temperature and light control - Skylights get more light than any other window type, so having the option to control how much sunlight the room gets is a big benefit. You can adjust plantation shutters to fit your needs, from fully open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also block heat better than any other window treatment available.

Skylight Shades for Austin

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

  • Minimal hassle - Don’t worry about the annoyance of pulling cords and the look of dangling cords with motorized shades. When your shades are on a track system, they won’t fall down. 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 let in plenty of light to blackout shades that offer privacy.

  • Nearly endless color and style options - Skylight shades are available in an enormous color palette, with a number of different fabrics 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 that comes through your skylight windows while still letting light filter through.
