Solutions for Hard to Reach Windows

Are you living with hard to reach windows? Have your windows been ignored because they are hard to reach? Leaving them bare has seemed like the only solution…it’s worked this long, right? Well, we’re here to tell you that there are simple solutions to enhancing and embracing your hard to reach windows. Bare windows are not the only option; in fact, bare windows can cause damage and an uncomfortable ambiance. Take a look at some of our solutions for hard to reach windows. A simple solution can transform your home!


Solution #1: Find the “Right” Window Treatments

If your windows are bare, we probably know why:

  • They’re out of reach.
  • They’re uniquely shaped.
  • You enjoy the light and view.

Luckily, there are window treatments that will cater to all of your needs. We offer custom window treatments–meaning your uniquely shaped windows can have beautiful coverings–which will only enhance the beauty.

If you love the incoming light, you can have the best of both worlds. Because too much light can cause frustrating glare, overheating and faded furniture, you need a custom solution, like this top down bottom up feature, to have the light enter while you also experience the protection you need. 


Solution #2: Embrace Your Hard to Reach Windows

If your floor to ceiling windows are divided into parts, it can be a perfect solution to your problems! While you might feel that you’re stuck with a wall of windows, if you have transoms, like the ones seen here, you can use that feature to create daylighting.

By covering the bottom portion of your window, you’re gaining light control, privacy and UV protection, all while reducing the glare. But, those hard to reach windows bring valuable light across your ceiling. And, if you have windows facing more than one direction, you can adjust shades to block direct light while allowing indirect to enter.

Solution #3: Accentuate the Character

Hard to reach windows might lend to the character of your home. So, it makes sense that you don’t want to cover them up. On the other hand, you shouldn’t suffer frustrations just to maintain a certain look. With custom solutions, we can enhance the character while you enjoy the benefits that window shades have to offer.

Solution #3: Add Convenience with Motorization

You may feel like you have the perfect window coverings and great access to your tallest windows. The problem is, you don’t feel like manually adjusting them all the time. We don’t blame you!

It’s all possible with smart home integration. You’ll get the most use out of your windows without the inconvenience of adjusting the light and privacy by hand.
