Best Window Treatments for Large Windows


by Charlene 12 Aug 2014

Large windows are beautiful and let in a lot of natural light, but they can also be difficult to cover. If you don't choose the right window coverings, it can be impossible to lift and the weight of the window coverings for the large window can cause damage and bowing.

Let us take the mystery out of window coverings for large windows. It's easy once you know what you're looking for.

Continuous Cord Loops

Blinds and shades with a continuous cord loop lift system are great for large windows. Because of the lift mechanism, you'll be able to raise and lower your window coverings easily and evenly. You won't have to worry about one side lowering or raising faster than the other side. Your blinds or shades will look great and last longer.

Multiple Blinds on One Headrail

Another option to consider for large windows is one headrail with two or three blinds. This will give you full coverage, but let you operate the individual shades or blinds separately. Installing multiple blinds on one headrail will eliminate the bowing problem that can accompany heavy window coverings.

Lighter Materials

A good rule of thumb for covering large windows is to choose lighter materials, like single cell honeycomb shades, real wood blinds, and sheer shades. The lighter the window coverings, the less bowing will occur and the easier it will be to use. Of course you want your window coverings to look nice, but you also want them perfectly functional, and lighter materials will help you have both.

Just because you have large windows doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style for functionality. Here at Select Blinds, you can choose the look you want and make it a perfect fit for your larger-than-life windows.
