Window Treatments for High Ceiling Windows in New York City

October 10, 2016

Many homes around New York City have that one 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 arm’s length. While these windows are unique and stunning, they can cause headaches when looking for high ceiling window treatments.

But don’t fret - there isn’t a window Sunburst Shutters New York has run into that wasn’t stunning 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.
 

High Ceiling 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 picks 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 almost never a concern, since it’s typical to keep the louvers placed at one specific angle at all times, so just the right amount of light is let in while at the same time keeping the privacy you need.

If regular 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 complete 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 when it comes time to clean, just one more reason to choose plantation shutters. With their material, color, and angled construction, Polywood® plantation shutters require cleaning much less frequently than other window treatments. And when it comes time to clean, the louvers and frame can be cleaned with a simple cloth, without the hassle of taking down the shutter.

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