Skylight Window Treatments for San Diego Homes

Tyson Williams

What San Diego area homeowner doesn’t enjoy the look and feel of sunlight streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights add a uniqueness to your home that no other type of window can.

Skylight shutters

Put the spotlight on your skylights with window treatments made for specialty windows. Our top recommendations are skylight shutters and skylight window shades.

Skylight Shutters in San Diego


San Diego plantation shutters are a great window treatment for skylight windows. Interior shutters bring both form and function like no other window treatment for skylights can. Here are some of the advantages shutters offer:

  • Crisp, elegant looks - Take it from us–gaudy, busy window treatments don’t match skylights. With shutters, you can pick from an array of organic wood tones and neutral stains, the kind of looks that go with your trim and walls. Plantation shutters have a timeliness to them that gives your skylights an elegant touch.

  • Easy maintenance - Most people with skylight shutters keep the louvers tilted slightly open throughout the day, which means they never have to worry about adjusting them. But if you would like to adjust them, you can easily do so using a reach pole that we’ll provide you with without charge!

  • Temperature and light control - Skylights get more sunlight than any other window type, so being able to control how much sunlight the space gets is a big plus. You can tilt plantation shutters to control the light, from completely open to complete darkness. Polywood® shutters also prevent heat transfer better than other window treatments on the market.

Skylight Shades for San Diego

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

  • Low hassle - Avoid the annoyance of pulling cords and the sight of cords dangling with motorized shades. By putting your shades on a track system, they’ll stay angled with your windows. And if your skylights are low enough, you can choose top-down/bottom-up roller shades to operate by hand.

  • Go as thin or thick as you want - Get skylight shades in a variety of styles, ranging from thin sheer shades that let in lots of sunlight to blackout shades to keep your privacy.

  • Large variety of color and style options - Skylight shades come in a large color palette, with a number of different fabrics to custom build your shades, as well as hardware and accent options to fit the mood you’re going for.

  • Control your lighting - Shades let you block the harshest light that passes through your skylight windows while still letting light filter through. You’ll have total control!
