Skylight Window Treatments for Denver Homes

Gary Harding

What Denver homeowner doesn’t enjoy how sunlight feels streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights add that extra touch to your house that no other style of window can.

Skylight shutters

Dress up your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. Our recommendations are skylight shutters and skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Denver


Denver plantation shutters are a great window treatment for skylight windows. Custom shutters combine form and function in a way no other window covering for skylights can. Take a look at the benefits shutters provide:

  • Streamlined, graceful style - Take it from us–bold, complicated window treatments don’t usually look great in skylights. With shutters, you can choose from a variety of natural wood tones and neutral stains, the kind of looks that match your windows and trim. Plantation shutters have a timeliness to them that gives your skylights an elegant touch.

  • Minimal maintenance - Most homeowners with skylight shutters keep the louvers tilted slightly open all day, so they don’t have to remember to adjust them. But if you would like to adjust them, it’s simple to do so with a reach pole that we’ll give to you for free!

  • Control over light and heat - Skylights are exposed to more light than other window types, so having the option to control how much sunlight the space gets is a huge benefit. You can tilt plantation shutters to any angle you want, from all the way open to complete darkness. Polywood® shutters also prevent heat transfer better than any other window treatment on the market.

Skylight Shades for Denver

Shutters aren’t your only choice for skylight windows. We also love to see custom shades in Denver skylights.

  • Minimal hassle - Bypass the hassle of pulling cords and the eyesore of dangling cords with motorized shades. When you put your shades on a track system, they’ll stay angled with your windows. And if your skylights are low enough to 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 styles, ranging from thin sheer shades that allow for plenty of sunlight to blackout shades to reclaim your space.

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

  • Adjust your lighting - Shades help you block the harshest light that passes through your skylight windows while still letting light filter through.
