Window Treatments for Tall Windows in Miami

October 10, 2016

Homeowners all across Miami have that one window or assortment of windows that sits high up on the wall close to where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so large that it may be out of arm’s length. While these additions are unique and visually interesting, they may also be a source of stress when looking for high ceiling window treatments.

But that’s no reason to fret - there hasn’t been a window Sunburst Shutters Miami has run into that we haven’t been able to turn into something stunning. Let’s learn about some of the best possibilities for window treatments for the tall windows in your Miami house.
 

High Ceiling Plantation Shutters

On the matter of high ceiling windows, the less hassle, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your first picks for a high window treatment. Usually the first thought about window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How do you open and shut it?” For shutters, that’s hardly a concern, since homeowners usually have the louvers set at one perfect angle at all times, so just the right amount of light comes in while also maintaining your privacy.

If periodic louver adjustment is necessary, there’s no need to get out the stepladder. We’ll provide you with an adjustable pole to tweak the tilt rod, giving you complete control over the lighting. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole collapses to fit in your closet until you need it again.

Another stressor which can come with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, another reason to pick plantation shutters. With their angled construction, material, and color, Polywood® plantation shutters need cleaning much less often than 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 perks, paired with plantation shutters’ unrivaled energy efficiency, make for a great fit for high windows.
