Skylight Window Treatments for Fort Lauderdale Homes

Danielle Micich

What Fort Lauderdale area homeowner doesn’t love the feeling of sunlight streaming in from their skylight windows? Skylights give that extra touch to your home that no other style of window can.

Skylight shutters

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

Skylight Shutters in Fort Lauderdale


Fort Lauderdale plantation shutters are a fantastic option for skylight windows. Interior shutters combine style and functionality like no other window covering for skylights can. Just look at some of the benefits shutters provide:

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

  • Easy maintenance - Most people with skylight shutters keep the louvers tilted slightly open all day, so they never have to remember to adjust them. But if you need to adjust them, it’s easy to do so by using a reach pole that we’ll give to you for free!

  • Temperature and light control - Skylights are exposed to more sunlight than other types of windows, so being able to control the amount of light the space gets is a big benefit. You can adjust plantation shutters to control the light, from all the way open to complete darkness. Polywood® shutters also prevent heat transfer better than other window treatments on the market.

Skylight Shades for Fort Lauderdale

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

  • Low hassle - Avoid the hassle of pulling cords and the look 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 choose top-down/bottom-up roller shades to operate by hand.

  • Go as thin or thick as you want - There are many styles for skylight shades, ranging from thin sheer shades that offer plenty of light to blackout shades to keep your privacy.

  • Large variety of color and style options - Skylight shades are available in a huge color palette, with lots of materials to choose from, as well as hardware and accent options to accentuate your windows.

  • Get light, but not too much light - Shades let you block the strongest light that passes through your skylight windows while still letting light filter through.
