Window Treatments for High Ceiling Windows in New York City

Darren Zuckerman

Many homes around New York City have that one window or set of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall near where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so large that its height puts it out of arm’s length. While these windows are unique and stunning, they can cause headaches when shopping for high ceiling window treatments.

But don’t fret - there isn’t a window Sunburst Shutters New York has run into that wasn’t beautiful by the time we were finished with it. Let’s take a look at some of the best choices for window treatments for the tall windows in your New York City home.

Tall Window Plantation Shutters

When the subject is high ceiling windows, the more convenient, the better. That’s why plantation shutters ought to be one of your foremost selections for a high window treatment. Typically the first thought about window treatments for a window high up on a wall is “How will I operate it?” If you choose shutters, that’s rarely a concern, since it’s typical to keep the louvers placed at one specific angle all the time, so they get the perfect amount of light while at the same time keeping the privacy you need.

If periodic louver movement is desired, you won’t need to break out the ladder. We’ll offer an adjustable pole to adjust the tilt rod, giving you easy control over the lighting. And once finished, the pole telescopes down to fit in your closet until you’re ready to use it again.

An additional headache that can come with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, just one more problem that plantation shutters can solve. With their color, the angled construction, and material, Polywood® plantation shutters don’t require cleaning as frequently as other window treatments. And when the time does come to clean, every part of the shutter can be cleaned with a simple cloth, without the hassle of taking down the shutter.

All of these benefits, coupled with plantation shutters’ unmatched energy efficiency, make for a perfect fit for tall windows.
