Window Treatments for High Windows in Indianapolis

Bill Burke

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 its height puts it out of arm’s length. While these high ceiling windows are unique and stunning, they may also be a cause for headaches when looking for high ceiling window treatments.

But don’t worry - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters Indianapolis has run into that we haven’t been able to turn into something gorgeous. Let’s take a look at a few of the best choices for window coverings for the tall and high ceiling windows in your Indianapolis home.

High Ceiling 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. Usually the first question about window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How do you operate it?” For shutters, that’s rarely a concern, since it’s typical to keep the louvers placed at a single, desireable angle at all times, so they get just the right amount of light 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 move the tilt rod, giving you easy control over the lighting. And when you’re done, the pole collapses to fit in your closet until you’re ready to use 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 material, color, and angled construction, 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 having to move the shutters.

All of these features, combined with plantation shutters’ unmatched energy efficiency, make them a perfect fit for high windows.
