Jan. 17, 2014 - What are Clerestory Windows?

Clerestory Windows, pronounced clear-story, are not really a type of window but a position of window. Here in the Seattle Area clerestory windows are often narrow and wide. What actually makes them clerestory windows is not the shape or size of the window, but that they are placed high in the room and usually above the average ceiling height. The roof line is usually raised at that point as well so that the windows bring in additional natural light, but usually someone of average height cannot see into them from outside and from inside all you can see through them is the sky.

Here is an example from a condo I just helped a client sell in Kirkland. The owner had installed blinds over these and there were closed. Usually you would not put blinds on clerestory windows at all, and I had the owner go up and open the blinds that were closed.

Usually best if there are no blinds or window treatments at all on clerestory windows.
