Skylight Window Treatments for Boise Homes

October 22, 2018

What Boise area homeowner doesn’t enjoy the warmth of sunlight pouring in from their skylight windows? Skylights give a special something to your home that no other type of window can.

Be sure to outfit your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. Our recommendations are skylight shutters and skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in Boise


Boise plantation shutters are the perfect window treatment for skylight windows. Custom shutters bring both form and function in a way no other window covering for skylights can. Just look at the many advantages shutters provide:

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

  • Minimal maintenance - Most homeowners with skylight shutters leave the louvers tilted slightly open every day, so they never have to bother with adjusting them. But if you want to adjust them, you can easily 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 being able to control how much light the space gets is a big benefit. You can tilt plantation shutters to fit your needs, from completely open to total darkness. Polywood® shutters also protect against heat transfer better than any other window treatment on the market.

Skylight Shades for Boise

Shutters aren’t your only choice for skylight windows. We also enjoy seeing custom shades in Boise skylights.

  • Low hassle - Bypass the hassle of pulling cords and the sight of cords dangling 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.

  • Choose your thickness - Get skylight shades in a number of options, ranging from thin sheer shades that offer plenty of sunlight to blackout shades to reclaim your space.

  • Nearly endless color and style options - Skylight shades are available in an enormous color palette, with many fabrics to custom build your shades, as well as hardware and accent options to fit your needs.

  • Get light, but not too much light - Shades allow you to block the harshest light that comes through your skylight windows while still letting light filter through.
