What Are The Best Blinds For Large Windows?

Large windows make a dramatic statement in any room, giving you an amazing unobstructed view while also letting in plenty of natural light. But sometimes, privacy is necessary and incoming sunlight becomes too intrusive, leaving you no choice but to cover your substantial windows. Covering large windows can become tricky because their sheer size can lead to heavy, difficult to operate window treatments. Keep this in mind when dressing big windows and shy away from bulky blinds, instead opting for lightweight, versatile shades.

Cellular shades softly filter incoming light while also providing unmatched insulation, trapping hot and cold air in their honeycomb shaped cells. Because of their lightweight design, you won’t struggle trying to adjust your light and privacy levels with cellular shades. Roller shades are a fabulous barely-there window treatment option if you enjoy leaving your large windows open and bare at times.

Available in many light and lift control options, roller shades are a minimalistic option that are simple and smooth to operate. Solar shades are the best option for large windows with a breathtaking view. Also known as “window sunglasses”, solar shades block out distracting sunlight and glare while still preserving your outside view. Openness factors vary from 0 – 14%, giving you a wide range of customizable options ideal for your home.

Regardless of what you choose, make your large window treatments even easier to operate with motorization. With just the press of a button, you will be raising and lowering your blinds without any fussing. Large windows don’t have to be a nuisance when there is such a big variety of options available to cover them stylishly and efficiently.
