Skylight Window Treatments for Atlanta Homes

October 22, 2018

What Atlanta area homeowner doesn’t love the warmth of sunlight pouring in from their skylight windows? Skylights add a uniqueness to your house that other windows can’t provide.

Dress up your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. We recommend using skylight shutters or skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Atlanta


Atlanta plantation shutters are a fantastic choice for skylight windows. Custom shutters bring both form and function like no other window treatment for skylights can. Here are some of the benefits shutters provide:

  • Crisp, beautiful looks - Believe us–gaudy, complicated window treatments don’t blend in with skylights. With shutters, you can choose from an array of natural wood tones and neutral stains, the kind of looks that match your windows and trim. Plantation shutters have a timeless style that gives your skylights an elegant touch.

  • Minimal maintenance - Most people with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open throughout the day, which means they don’t need to remember to adjust them. But if you need to adjust them, it’s simple to do so with a reach pole that we’ll offer at no charge!

  • Temperature and light control - Skylights get more sunlight than other window types, so being able to control how much sunlight you get is a big benefit. You can tilt plantation shutters to fit your needs, from completely open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also prevent heat transfer better than other window treatments.

Skylight Shades for Atlanta

Shutters aren’t the only window treatment for skylight windows. We also see custom shades in Atlanta skylights.

  • Minimal hassle - Bypass the trouble of pulling cords and the eyesore of dangling cords with motorized shades. When you put your shades on a track system, they’ll stay angled with your windows. And if your skylights are low enough, you can go with top-down/bottom-up roller shades to control by hand.

  • Go as thin or thick as you want - There are many styles for skylight shades, from thin sheer shades that allow for lots of sunlight to blackout shades that offer privacy.

  • Nearly endless color and style options - Skylight shades come in an enormous color palette, with many materials to custom build your shades, as well as hardware and accent options to accentuate your windows.

  • Get light, but not too much light - Shades help you block the harshest light that comes through your skylight windows while still allowing light to come in. It’s the best of both worlds!
