Skylight Window Treatments for San Jose Homes

October 22, 2018

What San Jose homeowner doesn’t love the warmth of sunlight streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights bring a special something to your home that no other type of window can.

Dress up your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. Our recommendations are skylight shutters and skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in San Jose


San Jose plantation shutters are the perfect choice for skylight windows. Plantation shutters blend form and function in a way no other window covering for skylights can. Here are the many advantages shutters offer:

  • Crisp, graceful style - Take our word–gaudy, busy window treatments don’t usually look great in skylights. With shutters, you can have your pick from a range of organic wood tones and neutral stains, the kind of looks that match your trim and walls. Plantation shutters have that classic look which gives your skylights a touch of elegance.

  • Easy maintenance - Most homeowners with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open all day, which means they don’t need to worry about adjusting them. But if you want to adjust them, you can easily do so with a reach pole that we’ll give to you for free!

  • Control over light and heat - Skylights receive more light than other window types, so having the option to control how much sunlight the room gets is a huge plus. You can adjust plantation shutters to any angle you want, from all the way open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also protect against heat transfer better than any other window treatment available.

Skylight Shades for San Jose

Shutters aren’t the only window treatment for skylight windows. We also enjoy seeing custom shades in San Jose skylights.

  • Low hassle - Avoid the trouble of pulling cords and the look of dangling cords with motorized shades. When you put your shades on a track system, they won’t fall down. And if your skylights are low enough, you can go with top-down/bottom-up roller shades to adjust by hand.

  • Go as thin or thick as you want - Get skylight shades in a number of options, from thin sheer shades that allow for plenty of sunlight to blackout shades that offer privacy.

  • Large variety of color and style options - Skylight shades are offered in a huge color palette, with many fabrics to custom build your shades, as well as hardware and accent options to fit the mood you’re going for.

  • Adjust your lighting - Shades allow you to block the strongest light that comes through your skylight windows while still letting light filter through.
