Window Treatments for High Ceiling Windows in Cincinnati

Lisa Renee Nieberding

Many homes around Cincinnati have a single window or group of windows that’s positioned high up on the wall close to the ceiling, or is so tall that it may be out of arm’s length. While these high ceiling windows are unique and beautiful, they might cause stress when looking for high ceiling window treatments.

But there’s no need to fret - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters Cincinnati has run into that wasn’t gorgeous by the time we were done with it. Let’s examine some of the best choices for window treatments for the tall and high ceiling windows in your Cincinnati home.

High Ceiling Plantation Shutters

For high ceiling windows, the less hassle, the better. That’s why plantation shutters should be one of your foremost selections for those windows. Typically the first question about window treatments for a window high up on a wall is “How will I open and shut it?” With shutters, that’s hardly a concern, since homeowners usually have the louvers placed at a single, perfect angle permanently, so just the right amount of light comes in while also protecting your privacy.

If periodic louver adjustment is desired, there’s no need to get out the stepladder. We’ll give you a telescoping pole to tweak the tilt rod, giving you easy control over your shutters. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole telescopes down for easy storage until you need it again.

One of the biggest hassles which can come with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. Due to their color, the angled construction, and material, Polywood® plantation shutters don’t require cleaning as often as other window treatments. And when the time does come to clean, the entire shutter can be cleaned with a simple cloth, without having to move the shutters.

All of these benefits, coupled with plantation shutters’ unmatched energy efficiency, make for a great fit for high ceiling windows.
