Window Treatments for Tall Windows in Austin

October 10, 2016

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 it’s out of reach. While these additions are distinctive and beautiful, they might cause headaches when searching for high ceiling window treatments.

But don’t fret - there hasn’t been a window Sunburst Shutters Austin has encountered that wasn’t beautiful by the time we were done with it. Let’s examine 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 less hassle, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your first selections for a high window treatment. Most times the first concern with window treatments for a window high up on a wall is “How do you operate it?” For shutters, that’s rarely a concern, since homeowners usually have the louvers set at one specific angle permanently, so they get the perfect amount of light while also protecting the privacy you need.

If frequent louver movement is necessary, there’s no need to get out the stepladder. We’ll provide you with an adjustable pole to adjust 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.

One of the biggest hassles which can come with high ceiling window treatments is cleaning them, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. 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, coupled with insulating shutters’ excellent energy efficiency, make for a great fit for high ceiling windows.

Motorized Shades Make Tall Windows Easy

What could be as easy as being able to leave your high window treatment in a single spot? Moving it with the flip of a switch! That’s what motorized shades offer, bringing you contemporary looks with the convenience of modern technology.

Motorized shades can be a perfect match for taller windows, especially since you can choose to either open or shut your shades the normal way, or remotely. Your shades have at long last entered the new millennium!
