Window Treatments for High Ceiling Windows in Washington DC

October 10, 2016

Several homes in Washington DC have a particular window or set of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall close to where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so large that its height puts it out of reach. While these additions are distinctive and beautiful, they can also be a source of stress when shopping for high ceiling window treatments.

But don’t worry - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters DC has run into that we haven’t been able to turn into something gorgeous. Let’s examine some of the best choices for window treatments for the tall windows in your Washington DC home.

Tall Window Plantation Shutters

When the subject is high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your first picks for those windows. Typically the first thought about window treatments for a window high up on a wall is “How will I open and close it?” If you choose shutters, that’s almost never a concern, since most people keep the louvers set at a single, perfect angle at all times, so they can let in just the right amount of light while still keeping the privacy you need.

If regular louver adjustment is needed, don’t worry about breaking out the stepladder. We’ll provide you with a telescoping pole to move the tilt rod, giving you total control over your shutters. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole collapses for easy storage until you’re ready to use it again.

One of the biggest hassles that can come with high ceiling window treatments is cleaning them, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. Due to their material, color, and angled construction, Polywood® plantation shutters don’t require cleaning as frequently as other window treatments. And when you do need to clean, the louvers and frame can be cleaned with a simple duster, without the hassle of taking down the shutter.

All of these features, combined with interior shutters’ unrivaled energy efficiency, make them a perfect fit for high windows.

Automatic Shades Make High Ceiling Windows Easy
