High Ceiling Plantation Shutters

When the subject is high ceiling windows, the more convenient, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your primary selections for a high window treatment. Typically the first question about window treatments for a tall or high window is “How do you operate it?” For shutters, that’s almost never a concern, since homeowners usually have the louvers set at a single, perfect angle permanently, so just the right amount of light comes in while still maintaining your privacy.

If frequent louver adjustment is needed, you won’t need to break out the ladder. We’ll give you a telescoping pole to move the tilt rod, giving you complete control over the lighting. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole collapses for easy storage until the time comes to adjust the shutters again.

One of the biggest hassles that is common with high ceiling window treatments is cleaning them, another problem that plantation shutters can solve. Due to their angled construction, material, and color, Polywood® plantation shutters require cleaning much less frequently than other window treatments. And when it comes time to clean, the louvers and frame can easily be wiped with a duster, without having to move the shutters.

All of these benefits, combined with insulating shutters’ unmatched energy efficiency, make shutters a great fit for high windows.
