Large windows are a great way to connect with your surroundings and add more natural light into your home. But they can also be a challenge to cover because of their size.
Drapes can be difficult to move, attract dust easily and hard to clean. And other options, especially ready-made window treatments, can bend or sag as time goes on.
When you partner with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop, you can easily design the right option for your home. And select the right operating system for your blinds or shades, such as PowerView®, which allows you to move and set schedules for your window treatments with your phone.
You’ll also receive many free benefits, including a consultation, professional measurements and a Louver Shop Complete Comfort™ price quote. All with no pressure or obligation.
As you start gathering ideas for inspiration, here are a few of our favorite best window treatments for large windows.
1. Plantation Shutters
Although plantation shutters have been around for years, they remain a homeowner favorite. They’re easy to clean, are nearly maintenance-free and might even lower your energy bill.
Choosing the right material for your plantation shutters is important to keep them from sagging on big windows. We recommend wood, solid polymer or a combination of the two to keep your shutters looking good for many years.
Available in many stain and paint options, wood is the lightest and strongest material. Polymer shutters, often seen in white, offer powerful insulating capabilities you’ll likely see reflected on your monthly energy bill.
Get the best features of both materials with our best-selling Classic shutters. These shutters feature extra-strong hardwood frames and energy-efficient solid polymer louvers to keep your heating and cooling where it belongs.
If you’re looking for wood shutters that make a statement, ask your Louver Shop consultant about our Heritage shutters
. These shutters are made from the finest American hardwoods and feature extra-thick panels for a luxurious appearance.
To enjoy more of your view, customize your shutters with a bypass or bifold track frame so you can easily move them out of the way. And, ask your design consultant about our Perfect View tilt rod, which is hidden on the back of the shutter panel, for an even less obstructed view.
2. Panel Track Blinds
For an ultramodern look for floor-to-ceiling windows, there’s Skyline®.
Show off your style when the gliding panels are closed with more than 600 fabrics, textures and colors. When the panels are open, they stack neatly out of the way for a broader view.
3. Sheer Vertical Blinds
Sheer vertical blinds aren’t your mom’s vertical blinds. Luminette® combines everything you love about sheer shades and blinds in one modern window treatment.
The sheers transform harsh sunlight into a gentle glow, while the floating blinds provide extra privacy. You can also customize your shades with an extra room-darkening panel.
With Luminette fabrics available by the yard, you can coordinate your new window treatments with matching accents like pillows and duvet covers.
4. Horizontal Sheer Shades
If you prefer a horizontal shade that looks like Luminette, there’s Silhouette®.
With floating, S-shaped vanes between two sheers, this shade provides the look of drapery with the functionality of blinds. The sheers diffuse bright sunlight into a welcoming glow, while the vanes deliver precise control over privacy.
You can further customize Silhouette by adding ClearView® Shadings, which provide an unobstructed view of the outdoors, and Duolite®, which incorporates a room-darkening shade.
5. Honeycomb Shades
Save energy in style with Sonnette™ cellular roller shades. These contemporary shades incorporate the best features of classic roller shades and energy-saving honeycomb shades.
These shades diffuse glaring sunlight into a warm glow. And their curved design traps air to keep indoor temperatures regulated and energy bills low.
6. Roman Shades
Like the look of fabric shades but want a window treatment that stands out when closed?
Highlight your interior design with Vignette® modern Roman shades, which feature flat or contoured folds when closed. These folds transform into neat stacks once you raise the shade.
When customizing these shades, you can choose from luxury fabrics in sheer to room-darkening opacities. A Duolite roller shade is available for even more light control.
7. Roller Shades
For a clean, classic look for sunny rooms, there’s Designer Screen Shades. With hundreds of fabric choices and multiple opacities, you’re sure to find a color and pattern that complements your space.
These screen shades provide UV protection for rooms in your home that get the most light, like sunrooms or patios. By blocking up to 96% of harmful rays, these window treatments help protect your furniture and flooring from fading.
