Window Treatments for Tall Windows in Tampa

Eric Ramsey

Many homes around Tampa have a particular window or set of windows that sits high up on the wall near the ceiling, or is so tall that it may be out of reach. While these additions are unique and beautiful, they may also be a cause for stress when shopping for high ceiling window treatments.

But there’s no need to fret - there hasn’t been a window Sunburst Shutters Tampa has seen that wasn’t stunning by the time we were done with it. Let’s learn about a few of the best choices for window coverings for the problematic windows in your Tampa house.

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 first picks for a high window treatment. Most times the first question about window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How will I open and close it?” For shutters, that’s hardly a concern, since it’s typical to keep the louvers placed at a single, perfect angle at all times, so they get just the right amount of light while also protecting your privacy.

If frequent louver movement is needed, don’t worry about breaking out the step stool. We’ll provide you with a telescoping pole to tweak the tilt rod, giving you easy control over the lighting. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole telescopes down to fit in your closet until the time comes to adjust the shutters again.

One of the biggest hassles which goes along with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, just one more problem that plantation shutters can solve. With their angled construction, material, and color, Polywood® plantation shutters need cleaning much less frequently than other window treatments. And when you do need to clean, the louvers and frame can easily be wiped with a cloth, without having to move the shutters.

All of these features, combined with insulating shutters’ top-notch energy efficiency, make shutters a superb fit for tall windows.

Automated Shades Make Tall Windows A Breeze
