Window Treatments for High Ceiling Windows in Hartford

October 10, 2016

Several homes in Hartford have that one window or assortment of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall just short of the ceiling, or is so tall that it may be out of reach. While these additions are unique and visually interesting, they can also be a source of headaches when searching for high ceiling window treatments.

But there’s no need to fret - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters Connecticut has seen that we haven’t been able to turn into something gorgeous. Let’s learn about a few of the best choices for window coverings for the tall and high ceiling windows in your Hartford house.

Plantation Shutters For High Ceiling Windows

When it comes to high ceiling windows, the more convenient, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your foremost choices for a high window treatment. Most times the first thought about window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How do you open and close it?” With shutters, that’s hardly a concern, since it’s typical to have the louvers set at a single, desireable angle permanently, so the perfect amount of light is let in while also keeping the privacy you need.

If periodic louver adjustment is necessary, there’s no need to get out the step stool. We’ll give you a telescoping pole to adjust the tilt rod, giving you total control over your shutters. And when you’re done, the pole collapses for easy storage until the time comes to adjust the shutters again.

Another stressor that goes along with high ceiling window treatments is cleaning them, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. Due to their angled construction, material, and color, Polywood® plantation shutters require cleaning much less often than other window treatments. And when you do need to clean, the entire shutter can be cleaned with a simple cloth, without the hassle of taking down the shutter.

All of these benefits, coupled with interior shutters’ top-notch energy efficiency, make for a superb fit for high windows.

What could be as easy as being able to leave your high window treatment in a single spot? Adjusting it with the flip of a switch! That’s what motorized shades bring to the table, adding trendy looks with modern convenience.

Motorized shades are a perfect match for high ceiling windows, even moreso because you can choose to either operate your shades manually, or remotely. Your shades have at long last entered the 21st century!
