Window Treatments for High Windows in Jacksonville10/10/2016Kevin McCormack Many homes around Jacksonville have a particular window or set of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall near where the wall meets the ceiling, or is so tall that its height puts it out of reach. While these windows are unique and gorgeous, they might also be a source of headaches when shopping for high ceiling window treatments. But there’s no need to fret - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters Jacksonville has run into that we haven’t turned into something gorgeous. Let’s examine a few of the best choices for window treatments for the tall windows in your Jacksonville house. High Ceiling Plantation Shutters When it comes to high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your primary selections for a high window treatment. Typically the first thought about window treatments for a tall or high window is “How do you operate it?” If you choose shutters, that’s almost never a concern, as it’s typical to keep the louvers set at a single, desireable angle permanently, so the perfect amount of light is let in while also keeping the privacy you need. If frequent louver adjustment is necessary, don’t worry about breaking out the step stool. We’ll give you a telescoping pole to tweak the tilt rod, giving you complete control over your shutters. And when you’re done, the pole telescopes down for easy storage until the time comes to adjust the shutters again. One of the biggest hassles that is common with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, just one more reason to choose plantation shutters. Because of their angled construction, material, and color, Polywood® plantation shutters require cleaning much less often than other window treatments. And when the time does come to clean, the louvers and frame can be cleaned with a simple cloth, without the hassle of taking down the shutter. All of these benefits, paired with insulating shutters’ excellent energy efficiency, make for a great fit for high windows. Motorized Shades Make Tall Windows Easy What’s almost easier than leaving your high window treatment in a single position? Being able to adjust it with the flip of a switch! That’s what motorized shades bring to the table, offering trendy style with modern convenience. Motorized shades can be a perfect match for high ceiling windows, especially since you can choose to either open and close your shades by hand, or with a control device. Your windows have at long last entered the 21st century!
