The Best Window Treatments For Tall Windows In Austin

April 15, 2022

Some windows are easier to cover than others. Window treatments for tall windows in Austin should look attractive and let you adjust them to manage light and privacy, no matter how tall or narrow they are. If curtains and blinds aren’t meeting your needs, try plantation shutters. They look impressive on every kind of window and are easy to operate and clean even on very tall windows.


Interior Shutters Look Elegant On Every Kind Of Tall Window

Not every window treatment looks good on tall windows. Aluminum blinds can appear flimsy and curtains can distort the dimensions of the room. Conversely, custom plantation shutters look fabulous on every shape and size of tall windows. Their louvered panels and frame fit your window’s specific shape so that they don’t hide the look of a special window. Made of hardy materials, interior shutters become a striking architectural detail within the room. And you have the choice between classic stained hardwood shutters or faux-wood Polywood® shutters in a modern white paint to match your decor.

Interior Shutters Provide Outstanding Coverage And Energy Efficiency For Tall Windows

Because interior shutters fit your windows properly, they provide fantastic coverage and energy efficiency. The frame prevents all cracks and gaps around your window’s perimeter like you get with hanging blinds, shades, and curtains. You especially don’t want openings on big windows that can let in a lot of light or drafts. Even the louvers on top-notch products like quality hardwood and Polywood shutters close securely to block more light and breezes than alternative window treatments on taller windows in Austin can. Polywood shutters even have an insulating system made to reduce energy use and expenses.

Of course, you don’t have to keep your window coverings closed all day. Interior shutters make it easy to let natural light in through your windows. Depending on how much light you desire, just tilt open the louvers or pull open the panels. You can request a divider rail that splits the shutter panels into sections for the tallest windows. Then you can open the top-most section for light and leave the lowest section closed for privacy.


Interior Shutters Are Easier To Clean Compared To Other Window Treatments For Tall Windows In Austin

If your windows are tall, washing your window treatments can be tricky. No one enjoys taking down curtains or stretching to reach the top of a long window shade with a vacuum attachment. Louvered shutters don’t cause these challenges. All you need a duster with an extendable pole for effortlessly dusting off your shutters no matter how tall your windows are. If you get tougher residue near the bottom, simply gently wipe with a damp cloth, so your shutters will gleam in no time!
