Skylight Window Treatments for New York City Homes

Dennis Rooney

What New York City area homeowner doesn’t love the warmth of sunlight pouring in from their skylight windows? Skylights bring a special something to your home that other windows can’t provide.

Skylight shutters

Be sure to outfit your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. We recommend using skylight shutters or skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in New York City


New York City plantation shutters are a fantastic window treatment for skylight windows. Interior shutters blend style and functionality in a way no other window covering for skylights can. Here are the many benefits shutters offer:

  • Crisp, beautiful style - Believe us–bright, busy window treatments don’t belong with skylights. With shutters, you can pick from a variety of natural wood tones and neutral stains, the kind of looks that match your windows and trim. Plantation shutters have a classic look that gives your skylights an elegant feel.

  • Easy maintenance - Most homeowners with skylight shutters keep the louvers tilted slightly open every day, and so they don’t have to worry about adjusting them. But if you want to adjust them, it’s simple to do so using a reach pole that we’ll provide you with without charge!

  • Temperature and light control - Skylights receive more sunlight than other window types, so having the option to control how much light the space gets is a big benefit. You can tilt plantation shutters to fit your needs, from all the way open to complete darkness. Polywood® shutters also prevent heat transfer better than other window treatments on the market.

Skylight Shades for New York City

Shutters aren’t your only choice for skylight windows. We also see custom shades in New York City skylights.

  • Minimal hassle - Bypass the trouble of pulling cords and the look of dangling cords with motorized shades. When you put your shades on a track system, they won’t fall down. And if your skylights are within reach, opt for top-down/bottom-up roller shades to adjust by hand.

  • Go as thin or thick as you want - Get skylight shades in a number of options, ranging from thin sheer shades that offer plenty of sunlight to blackout shades to keep your privacy.

  • Nearly endless color and style options - Skylight shades come in a large color palette, with many fabrics to custom build your shades, as well as accent and hardware options to fit your needs.

  • Control your lighting - Shades allow you to block the strongest light that comes through your skylight windows while still letting some in.
