Skylight Window Treatments for Tampa Homes

October 22, 2018

What Tampa homeowner doesn’t enjoy the feeling of sunlight streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights give that extra touch to your home that no other kind of window can.

Dress up your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. We recommend using skylight shutters or skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Tampa


Tampa plantation shutters are a great option for skylight windows. Plantation shutters bring both form and function in a way no other window treatment for skylights can. Here are the advantages shutters provide:

  • Streamlined, graceful looks - Take our word–gaudy, complicated window treatments don’t match skylights. With shutters, you can choose from an array of organic wood tones and neutral stains, the kind of materials that seamlessly blend into your window trim and walls. Plantation shutters have a timeliness to them that gives your skylights an elegant feel.

  • Minimal maintenance - Most homeowners with skylight shutters keep the louvers tilted slightly open all day, which means they never have to bother with adjusting them. But if you would like to adjust them, you can easily do so by using a reach pole that we’ll give to you for free!

  • Control over light and heat - Skylights are exposed to more sunlight than any other window type, so controlling the amount of light you get is a huge plus. You can tilt plantation shutters to any angle you want, from completely open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also block heat better than any other window treatment available.

Skylight Shades for Tampa

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

  • Low hassle - Don’t worry about the hassle of pulling cords and the eyesore of dangling cords with motorized shades. When your shades are on a track system, they’ll stay angled with your windows. And if your skylights are low enough to reach, you can choose top-down/bottom-up roller shades to operate by hand.

  • Go as thin or thick as you want - Get skylight shades in a number of options, ranging from thin sheer shades that allow for lots of light to blackout shades that offer privacy.

  • Nearly endless color and style options - Skylight shades come in a huge color palette, with a number of fabrics to match your style, as well as accent and hardware options to accentuate your windows.

  • Control your lighting - Shades let you block the strongest light that passes through your skylight windows while still letting light filter through. It’s the best of both worlds!
