The Ideal Window Treatments For Tall Windows In Washington DC

April 15, 2022

Some windows are easier to cover than others. Window treatments for tall windows in Washington DC should be attractive and allow you to arrange them to manage privacy and light, no matter how tall or skinny they are. If blinds and curtains aren’t living up to your expectations, use plantation shutters. They look gorgeous on every style of window and are effortless to use and clean even on very tall windows.


Interior Shutters Look Elegant On Every Type Of Tall Window

Not every kind of window treatment looks good on tall windows. Aluminum blinds can look shoddy and curtains can distort the size of the room. On the other hand, custom louvered shutters look gorgeous on every size and shape of tall windows. Their frame and louvered panels fit your window’s exact shape so that you don’t lose the shape of a special window. Fabricated with solid materials, these shutters become an arresting architectural element in the room. And you can choose between classic stained hardwood shutters or faux-wood Polywood® shutters in a trendy white finish to go with your decor.

Interior Shutters Provide Outstanding Coverage And Insulation For Tall Windows

Since interior shutters fit your windows correctly, they provide excellent coverage and energy efficiency. The frame ensures no cracks and gaps around your window’s perimeter like you get with hanging blinds, shades, and curtains. You especially don’t want cracks on big windows that can let in a lot of drafts or light. Even the louvers on top-of-the-line products like premium hardwood and Polywood shutters close securely to keep out more light and breezes than alternative window treatments on taller windows in Washington DC can. Polywood shutters even have an insulating system made to reduce energy consumption and expenses.

Of course, you won’t always keep your window coverings shut all the time. Louvered shutters make it easy to let natural light in through your windows. Depending on how much light you want, just tilt open the louvers or pull open the panels. You can order a divider rail that divides the shutter panels into sections on the tallest windows. You can then open the highest section for illumination and leave the lowest section closed for privacy.


Interior Shutters Are Easier To Clean Compared To Alternative Window Treatments For Tall Windows In Washington DC

If you have tall windows, cleaning your window treatments can be tricky. Nobody likes taking down curtains or stretching to reach the top of a long window shade with the vacuum attachment. Interior shutters don’t give you such problems. All you require a duster on an extendable pole for effortlessly dusting off your shutters’ finish no matter how tall your windows are. If you see tougher grime near the bottom, lightly rub with a damp cloth, and your shutters will shine in no time!
