The Perfect Window Treatments For Tall Windows In New York City

April 15, 2022

Some windows are easier to cover than others. Window treatments for tall windows in New York City should look appealing and let you adjust them to control privacy and light, even if they are tall and narrow. If blinds and curtains aren’t meeting your needs, use plantation shutters. They look stunning on all types of windows and are effortless to use and clean even on the tallest windows.

 

Interior Shutters Look Gorgeous On Every Type Of Tall Window

Not all window treatments look right on tall windows. Curtains can distort the size of the room and aluminum blinds can look flimsy. However, custom plantation shutters look wonderful on all shapes and sizes of tall windows. Their louvered panels and frame fit your window’s specific shape so that they don’t hide the look of a unique window. Constructed from solid materials, these shutters become an arresting architectural detail for the room. And you have the choice between faux-wood Polywood® shutters in a modern white paint to match your decor or timeless stained hardwood shutters.
 

Louvered Shutters Provide Exceptional Energy Efficiency And Coverage For Tall Windows

Because interior shutters fit your windows exactly, they provide fantastic insulation and coverage. The frame ensures no gaps and cracks around your window’s perimeter like you see with hanging shades, curtains, and blinds. You especially don’t want openings on large windows where a lot of light or drafts can slip in. Even the louvers on top-notch products like quality Polywood and hardwood shutters shut tightly to block more drafts and light than alternative window treatments on taller windows in New York City can. Polywood shutters also reduce energy consumption and costs with their patented insulating system.

Naturally, you don’t have to keep your window coverings shut all the time. You can easily let in sunlight with the louvered shutters on your windows. Depending on how much sunlight you want, just pull open the panels or tilt open the louvers. You can order a divider rail that splits the shutter panels into sections for very tall windows. Then you can open the highest section for light and keep the lowest section closed for privacy.

 

Interior Shutters Are Easier To Clean Compared To Alternative Window Treatments For Tall Windows In New York City

If your windows are tall, washing your window coverings can be tricky. Nobody likes taking down drapes or standing on tip-toe to reach the top of a long window shade with the vacuum attachment. Louvered shutters don’t have such issues. You just need a duster attached to an extendable pole for effortlessly dusting off your shutters no matter how tall your windows are. If you see tougher grime near the bottom, just gently rub with a damp cloth, so your shutters will shine again in no time!
