Window Treatments for High Windows in San Jose

Curtis Orton

Homeowners all across San Jose have that one window or group of windows that sits high up on the wall close to the ceiling, or is so large that it may be out of reach. While these additions are distinctive and beautiful, they may cause stress when searching for high ceiling window treatments.

But don’t worry - there isn’t a window Sunburst Shutters San Jose has run into that wasn’t stunning by the time we were done with it. Let’s take a look at a few of the best possibilities for window coverings for the problematic windows in your San Jose 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 foremost selections for those windows. Usually the first concern with window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How do you open and shut it?” For shutters, that’s almost never a concern, as it’s typical to have the louvers set at one specific angle permanently, so they get just the right amount of light while at the same time protecting your privacy.

If periodic louver movement is necessary, don’t worry about breaking out the ladder. We’ll provide you with an adjustable pole to move the tilt rod, giving you easy control over the lighting. And when you’re done, the pole telescopes down for easy storage until you’re ready to use it again.

An additional headache which is common with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, another reason to go with 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 perks, coupled with insulating shutters’ unmatched energy efficiency, make them a perfect fit for tall windows.
