Skylight Window Treatments for Colorado Springs Homes

Gary Harding

What Colorado Springs area homeowner doesn’t enjoy how sunlight feels streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights add that extra touch to your house that other types of windows can’t provide.

Skylight shutters

Be sure to outfit your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. Our recommendations are skylight shutters and skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Colorado Springs


Colorado Springs plantation shutters are the perfect window treatment for skylight windows. Interior shutters bring both form and function like no other window covering for skylights can. Take a look at the advantages shutters have to offer:

  • Minimal, graceful looks - Take our word–gaudy, busy 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 trim and walls. Plantation shutters have that classic look which gives your skylights an elegant touch.

  • Low maintenance - Most homeowners with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open every day, and so they never have to remember to adjust them. But if you need to adjust them, it’s simple to do so by using a reach pole that we’ll offer at no charge!

  • Temperature and light control - Skylights are exposed to more light than any other window type, so being able to control how much sunlight the space gets is a big benefit. You can adjust plantation shutters to any angle you want, from all the way open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also protect against heat transfer better than any other window treatment.

Skylight Shades for Colorado Springs

Shutters aren’t the only option for skylight windows. We also enjoy seeing custom shades in Colorado Springs skylights.

  • Minimal hassle - Don’t worry about the annoyance of pulling cords and the eyesore of dangling cords with motorized shades. By putting 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 - There are many styles for skylight shades, ranging from thin sheer shades that let in plenty of light to blackout shades to keep your privacy.

  • Large variety of color and style options - Skylight shades are available in an enormous color palette, with a number of different fabrics to match your style, as well as accent and hardware options to accentuate your windows.

  • Control your lighting - Shades help you block the strongest light that passes through your skylight windows while still letting light filter through. You’ll have total control!
