Tall Window Plantation Shutters

When it comes to high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your first choices for a high window treatment. Most times the first question about window treatments for a window high up on a wall is “How do you open and close it?” If you choose shutters, that’s rarely a concern, since it’s typical to 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, don’t worry about breaking out the stepladder. We’ll offer an adjustable pole to tweak the tilt rod, giving you complete 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 when it comes time to clean, just one more reason to go with plantation shutters. With their color, the angled construction, and material, Polywood® plantation shutters don’t require cleaning as often as other window treatments. And when the time does come to clean, the louvers and frame can easily be wiped with a duster, without moving or taking the shutters down.

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