The Best Window Treatments For Tall Windows In Chicago

April 15, 2022

Some windows are easier to cover than others. Window treatments for tall windows in Chicago should be appealing and let you arrange them to control light and privacy, even if they are tall and skinny. If curtains and blinds aren’t cutting it, use plantation shutters. They look stunning on all types of windows and are effortless to operate and clean even on the tallest windows.


Interior Shutters Look Gorgeous On Every Type Of Tall Window

Not all window treatments look good on tall windows. Curtains can distort the size of the room and aluminum blinds can look shoddy. However, custom interior shutters look gorgeous on all sizes and shapes of tall windows. Their frame and louvered panels fit your window’s specific shape so that they don’t hide the shape of a special window. Fabricated with solid materials, these shutters are an impressive architectural element in the room. And you can choose between faux-wood Polywood® shutters in a modern white finish to match your decor or classic stained hardwood shutters.

Interior Shutters Provide Outstanding Energy Efficiency And Coverage For Tall Windows

Because interior shutters fit your windows properly, they give you superb insulation and coverage. The frame ensures no gaps and cracks around your window’s edge like you get with hanging shades, curtains, and blinds. You especially don’t want openings on large windows where a lot of drafts or light can sneak in. Even the louvers on high-end products like premium Polywood and hardwood shutters shut tightly to keep out more drafts and light than alternative window treatments on taller windows in Chicago could. Polywood shutters also reduce energy use and costs thanks to specially-designed insulating system.

Naturally, you don’t have to keep your window coverings shut all the time. You can easily let in sunlight with interior shutters on your windows. Just tilt open the louvers or pull open the panels, depending on the amount of natural light you desire. You can customize your shutters with a divider rail that divides the shutter panels into sections on the tallest windows. You can then open the top section for illumination and leave the lowest section closed for privacy.


Louvered Shutters Are More Simple To Clean Compared To Other Window Treatments For Tall Windows In Chicago

If you have tall windows, cleaning your window treatments can be tricky. No one likes removing drapes or standing on tip-toe to reach the top of a long window shade with a vacuum attachment. Interior shutters don’t give you these challenges. You just need a duster attached to an extendable pole to effortlessly dust off your shutters’ finish no matter how tall your windows are. If you see thicker dirt near the bottom, just gently wipe with a damp cloth, so your shutters will shine in no time!
