But don’t worry - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters San Antonio has seen that wasn’t beautiful by the time we were finished with it. Let’s examine a few of the best options for window treatments for the tall and high ceiling windows in your San Antonio home.

High Ceiling Plantation Shutters

For high ceiling windows, the lower maintenance, the better. That’s why plantation shutters ought to be one of your first choices for a high window treatment. Typically the first question about window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How will I open and close it?” For shutters, that’s rarely a concern, since it’s typical to keep the louvers placed at a single, desireable angle all the time, so they get just the right amount of light while at the same time protecting the privacy you need.

If periodic louver adjustment is needed, there’s no need to get out the stepladder. We’ll offer a telescoping pole to move the tilt rod, giving you total control over the lighting. And when you’re done, the pole telescopes down to fit in your closet until you need it again.

Another stressor that goes along with high ceiling window treatments is when it comes time to clean, just one more reason to choose plantation shutters. Because of their color, the angled construction, and material, Polywood® plantation shutters don’t require cleaning as often as other window treatments. And when it comes time to clean, the louvers and frame can be cleaned with a simple duster, without the hassle of taking down the shutter.

All of these benefits, paired with insulating shutters’ top-notch energy efficiency, make them a superb fit for tall windows.
