Skylight Window Treatments for Atlanta Homes

Dan Taylor

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

Skylight shutters

Be sure to outfit 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. Plantation shutters bring both style and functionality like no other window treatment for skylights can. Here are the many benefits shutters provide:

  • Streamlined, elegant looks - Take it from us–gaudy, complicated window treatments don’t belong with skylights. With shutters, you can pick from an array of natural wood tones and neutral stains, the kind of materials 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, so they never have to remember to adjust them. But if you want to adjust them, it’s simple to do so using a reach pole that we’ll give to you for free!

  • Temperature and light control - Skylights get more sunlight than other window types, so controlling how much sunlight you get is a big benefit. You can tilt plantation shutters to any angle you want, from completely open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also block heat 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 hassle of pulling cords and the eyesore of dangling cords with motorized shades. When your shades are on a track system, they’ll stay angled with your windows. And if your skylights are low enough, opt for 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 let in lots of sunlight to blackout shades that offer privacy.

  • Nearly endless color and style options - Skylight shades come in an enormous color palette, with a number of materials to choose from, 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 coming through your skylight windows while still allowing light to come in. You’ll have total control!
