Skylight Window Treatments for Washington DC Homes

October 22, 2018

What Washington DC area homeowner doesn’t enjoy the warmth of sunlight streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights add that extra touch to your house that other types of windows can’t provide.

Dress up your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. Our recommendations are skylight shutters and skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Washington DC

Washington DC plantation shutters are the perfect window treatment for skylight windows. Interior shutters bring both form and function like no other window covering for skylights can. Here are the advantages shutters offer:

  • Crisp, elegant style - Believe us–gaudy, overdesigned window treatments don’t belong with skylights. With shutters, you can pick from a range of natural wood tones and neutral stains, the type of materials that match your windows and trim. Plantation shutters have a timeless style that gives your skylights an elegant touch.

  • Minimal maintenance - Most people with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open every day, and so they don’t have to remember to adjust them. But if you would like to adjust them, it’s simple to do so with a reach pole that we’ll provide you with without charge!

  • Control over light and heat - Skylights are exposed to more light than other window types, so controlling the amount of light you get is a huge plus. You can adjust plantation shutters to control the light, from completely open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also protect against heat transfer better than other window treatments.

Skylight Shades for Washington DC

Shutters aren’t the only option for skylight windows. We also enjoy seeing custom shades in Washington DC skylights.

  • Minimal hassle - Don’t worry about the hassle of pulling cords and the sight of cords dangling with motorized shades. By putting your shades on a track system, they’ll stay tight against your window. And if your skylights are low enough to reach, opt for top-down/bottom-up roller shades to operate by hand.

  • Go as thin or thick as you want - There are many styles for skylight shades, ranging from thin sheer shades that allow for plenty of light to blackout shades to reclaim your space.

  • Almost unlimited color and style options - Skylight shades are available in an enormous color palette, with many fabrics to match your style, as well as hardware and accent options to fit the mood you’re going for.

  • Adjust your lighting - Shades allow you to block the strongest light that passes through your skylight windows while still allowing light to come in. It’s the best of both worlds!
