Skylight Window Treatments for San Jose Homes

Curtis Orton

What San Jose homeowner doesn’t love how sunlight feels coming in from their skylight windows? Skylights give a special something to your home that no other type of window can.

Skylight shutters

Be sure to outfit your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. We recommend choosing skylight shutters or skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in San Jose


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

  • Streamlined, graceful style - Take our word–bold, 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 materials that seamlessly blend into your window 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 throughout the day, so they never have to bother with adjusting them. But if you need 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 get more light than other window types, so having the option to control how much sunlight you get 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 - Don’t worry about the trouble of pulling cords and the sight of cords dangling with motorized shades. When you put your shades on a track system, they’ll stay tight against your window. And if your skylights are low enough, opt for 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 available in a large color palette, with a number of fabrics to custom build your shades, as well as hardware and accent options to fit your needs.

  • Get light, but not too much light - Shades allow you to block the strongest light that comes through your skylight windows while still letting light filter through.
