But there’s no need to worry - there’s no window Sunburst Shutters Chicago has seen that wasn’t stunning by the time we were through with it. Let’s examine a few of the best choices for window treatments for the tall windows in your Chicago home.

High Ceiling Plantation Shutters

When it comes to high ceiling windows, the less hassle, the better. That’s why plantation shutters ought to be one of your foremost picks for those windows. Most times the first question about window treatments for a window high up on a wall is “How will I open and shut it?” If you choose shutters, that’s rarely a concern, as it’s typical to keep the louvers set at a single, specific angle at all times, so they get the perfect amount of light while still keeping your privacy.

If frequent louver adjustment is needed, don’t worry about breaking out the stepladder. We’ll offer a telescoping pole to move the tilt rod, giving you easy control over your shutters. And once finished, the pole collapses for easy storage until you need it again.

One of the biggest hassles that can come 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 don’t require cleaning as frequently as other window treatments. And when you do need to clean, every part of the shutter can be cleaned with a simple cloth, without moving or taking the shutters down.

All of these benefits, coupled with interior shutters’ unmatched energy efficiency, make for a superb fit for high windows.
