Window Treatments for High Windows in Austin

Tyler Jorgensen

Homeowners all across Austin have a single window or group of windows that sits high up on the wall just short of where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so tall that its height puts it out of reach. While these windows are distinctive and beautiful, they might also be a source of headaches when searching for high ceiling window treatments.

But don’t fret - there hasn’t been a window Sunburst Shutters Austin has run into that we haven’t turned into something beautiful. Let’s take a look at a few of the best possibilities for window coverings for the tall windows in your Austin home.

Tall Window Plantation Shutters

On the matter of high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your primary selections for a high window treatment. Most times the first question about window treatments for a window high up on a wall is “How do you open and shut it?” For shutters, that’s almost never a concern, since homeowners usually have the louvers set at one specific angle permanently, so just the right amount of light comes in while still maintaining the privacy you need.

If frequent louver movement is necessary, don’t worry about breaking out the stepladder. We’ll give you an adjustable pole to move the tilt rod, giving you complete control over your shutters. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole telescopes down for easy storage until you need it again.

Another stressor which can come with high ceiling window treatments is cleaning them, just one more problem that plantation shutters can solve. With their angled construction, material, and color, Polywood® plantation shutters don’t need to be cleaned as often as other window treatments. And when the time does come to clean, the louvers and frame can be cleaned with a simple duster, without moving or taking the shutters down.

All of these perks, paired with insulating shutters’ excellent energy efficiency, make for a great fit for high windows.

Motorized Shades Make Tall Windows Easy
