Tall Window Plantation Shutters

When the subject is high ceiling windows, the less hassle, the better. That’s why plantation shutters ought to be one of your foremost choices for a high window treatment. Typically the first question about window treatments for a window high up on a wall is “How do you open and close it?” With shutters, that’s almost never a concern, as homeowners usually have the louvers placed at a single, specific angle all the time, so just the right amount of light is let in while still maintaining your privacy.

If periodic louver movement is necessary, there’s no need to get out the step stool. We’ll give you a telescoping pole to adjust the tilt rod, giving you complete control over the lighting. And once finished, the pole telescopes down for easy storage until you need it again.

One of the biggest hassles that is common with high ceiling window treatments is when it comes time to clean, just one more area in which plantation shutters shine. Because of their material, color, and angled construction, Polywood® plantation shutters need cleaning much less frequently than other window treatments. And when it comes time to clean, the entire shutter can be cleaned with a simple duster, without having to move the shutters.

All of these features, paired with interior shutters’ excellent energy efficiency, make for a superb fit for high ceiling windows.
