October 10, 2016

Homeowners all across Gainesville have that one window or assortment of windows that sits high up on the wall just short of the ceiling, or is so tall that it’s out of arm’s length.

But that’s no reason to worry - there isn’t a window Sunburst Shutters Gainesville has seen that we haven’t turned into something beautiful. Let’s take a look at some of the best choices for window treatments for the problematic windows in your Gainesville 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 foremost picks for a high window treatment. Most times the first thought about window treatments for a high-sitting window is “How will I operate it?” If you choose shutters, that’s rarely a concern, as most people keep the louvers set at a single, perfect angle permanently, so they can let in just the right amount of light while at the same time maintaining your privacy.

If periodic louver adjustment is needed, there’s no need to get out the stepladder. We’ll give you an adjustable pole to move the tilt rod, giving you easy control over your shutters. And after you’ve adjusted the shutter, the pole collapses for easy storage until the time comes to adjust the shutters again.

An additional headache which can come with high ceiling window treatments is keeping them clean, just one more problem that plantation shutters can solve. Due to their color, the angled construction, and material, Polywood® plantation shutters require cleaning much less frequently than other window treatments. And when the time does come to clean, the entire shutter can be cleaned with a simple duster, without moving or taking the shutters down.

All of these benefits, paired with insulating shutters’ excellent energy efficiency, make for a great fit for high ceiling windows.
