October 10, 2016

Many homes around Indianapolis have a particular window or assortment of windows that sits high up on the wall just short of the ceiling, or is so large that it’s out of arm’s length.

But there’s no need to worry - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters Indianapolis has run into that wasn’t stunning by the time we were finished with it. Let’s examine a few of the best choices for window coverings for the tall and high ceiling windows in your Indianapolis home.

Tall Window Plantation Shutters

When it comes to high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, 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 tall or high window is “How do you operate it?” For shutters, that’s rarely a concern, since most people keep the louvers placed at a single, desireable angle all the time, so just the right amount of light comes in while still maintaining your privacy.

If frequent louver adjustment is necessary, there’s no need to get out the stepladder. We’ll offer an adjustable pole to adjust the tilt rod, giving you easy control over the lighting. And once finished, the pole collapses to fit in your closet until you need it again.

An additional headache that goes along with high ceiling window treatments is cleaning them, another reason to choose plantation shutters. Because of 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, every part of the shutter can be cleaned with a simple cloth, without moving or taking the shutters down.

All of these features, combined with plantation shutters’ top-notch energy efficiency, make them a great fit for high windows.
