Window Treatments for High Ceiling Windows in Orlando10/10/2016Todd Hansen Many homes around Orlando have a particular window or set of windows that sits high up on the wall near the ceiling, or is so tall that it may be out of arm’s length. While these additions are unique and visually interesting, they can also be a cause for headaches when shopping for high ceiling window treatments. But don’t worry - there isn’t a window Sunburst Shutters Orlando has encountered that wasn’t beautiful by the time we were through with it. Let’s learn about some of the best possibilities for window coverings for the tall and high ceiling windows in your Orlando home. High Ceiling Plantation Shutters On the matter of high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your first selections for a high window treatment. Usually the first concern with window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How do you open and shut it?” For shutters, that’s hardly a concern, as homeowners usually have the louvers placed at a single, perfect angle all the time, so they get just the right amount of light while still protecting the privacy you need. If regular louver adjustment is necessary, you won’t need to break out the step stool. We’ll provide you with a telescoping pole to tweak the tilt rod, giving you complete control over your shutters. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, 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 keeping them clean, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. With their material, color, and angled construction, Polywood® plantation shutters require cleaning much less frequently than other window treatments. And when you do need to clean, every part of the shutter can easily be wiped with a cloth, without the hassle of taking down the shutter. All of these features, paired with interior shutters’ top-notch energy efficiency, make for a perfect fit for high ceiling windows. Automated Shades Make Tall Windows Simple What’s almost easier than being able to leave your high window treatment in a single position? Being able to adjust it with the push of a button! That’s where automated shades come in, adding chic looks with straightforward convenience. Motorized shades can be a great partner for high ceiling windows, especially because you’re able to choose to either open and close your shades manually, or by remote control. Your window treatments have entered the 21st century! Beautiful New Window Treatments Are Within Reach Don’t let the height of your windows discourage you from making the best choice for your home.
