Window Treatments for High Windows in Colorado Springs

Gary Harding

Several homes in Colorado Springs have a particular window or group of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall just short of where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so tall that it’s out of arm’s length. While these windows are distinctive and visually interesting, they can also be a cause for headaches when searching for high ceiling window treatments.

But that’s no reason to fret - there isn’t a window Sunburst Shutters Colorado Springs has encountered that wasn’t gorgeous by the time we were done with it. Let’s take a look at a few of the best options for window treatments for the tall windows in your Colorado Springs house.

Tall Window 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 primary picks for those windows. Typically the first thought about window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How will I open and shut it?” If you choose shutters, that’s hardly a concern, since homeowners usually have the louvers set at a single, desireable angle permanently, so they get the perfect amount of light while at the same time maintaining the privacy you need.

If regular louver movement is needed, you won’t need to break out the stepladder. We’ll provide you with a telescoping pole to tweak the tilt rod, giving you total control over the lighting. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole telescopes down for easy storage until the time comes to adjust the shutters again.

An additional headache that is common with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. With their color, the angled construction, and material, Polywood® plantation shutters don’t require cleaning as often as other window treatments. And when you do need to clean, the louvers and frame can be cleaned with a simple cloth, without moving or taking the shutters down.

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