Skylight Window Treatments for New York City Homes

October 22, 2018

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

Dress up 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 great window treatment for skylight windows. Interior shutters combine form and function in a way no other window covering for skylights can. Here are the many benefits shutters offer:

  • Streamlined, beautiful style - Believe us–bright, busy window treatments don’t belong with skylights. With shutters, you can pick from a range of natural wood tones and neutral stains, the kind of materials that seamlessly blend into 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 bother with adjusting them. But if you want to adjust them, it’s simple to do so with a reach pole that we’ll provide you with without charge!

  • Temperature and light control - Skylights get more sunlight than other window types, so having the option to control the amount of 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 block heat 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.

  • Low hassle - Bypass the hassle of pulling cords and the look of dangling cords with motorized shades. When your shades are on a track system, they’ll stay tight against your window. And if your skylights are within reach, opt for top-down/bottom-up roller shades to operate by hand.

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

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

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