Window Treatments for High Windows in Denver

Gary Harding

Many homes around Denver have a particular window or assortment of windows that sits high up on the wall just short of the ceiling, or is so tall that it’s out of reach. While these high ceiling windows are distinctive and gorgeous, they can cause headaches when searching for high ceiling window treatments.

But that’s no reason to fret - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters Denver has seen that we haven’t been able to turn into something stunning. Let’s learn about a few of the best options for window coverings for the tall and high ceiling windows in your Denver home.

Tall Window Plantation Shutters

When it comes to high ceiling windows, the less hassle, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your first choices for a high window treatment. Most times the first concern with window treatments for a window high up on a wall is “How do you open and close it?” If you choose shutters, that’s almost never a concern, since most people have the louvers set at a single, specific angle permanently, so just the right amount of light is let in while at the same time protecting your privacy.

If periodic louver adjustment is desired, there’s no need to get out the stepladder. We’ll offer an adjustable pole to tweak the tilt rod, giving you easy control over your shutters. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole telescopes down for easy storage until the time comes to adjust the shutters again.

One of the biggest hassles that goes along with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. Due to their material, color, and angled construction, Polywood® plantation shutters don’t require cleaning as often as other window treatments. And when it comes time to clean, the louvers and frame can easily be wiped with a duster, without moving or taking the shutters down.

All of these features, combined with insulating shutters’ excellent energy efficiency, make shutters a superb fit for high windows.

Motorized Shades Make Tall Windows Easy
