3 Best Blinds for Picture Windows

Picture windows offer a wide view of your gorgeous surroundings and ample natural light. Because these windows are so big and their size can vary, we recommend window treatments made just for your home.

Custom blinds are one of the best solutions for covering large windows. Unlike curtains, they are easy to clean and many styles are available as automated blinds. You can adjust them with your phone or even your voice, when linked with a compatible smart home system.

It’s simple and even enjoyable to customize your new window blinds when you work with Louver Shop of Columbia. We begin the process with our free, in-home consultation, where we’ll bring the showroom to your living room. Your local design consultant will help you create a one-of-kind solution for your home during this no-pressure meeting. Then your designer will be with you every step of the way, from free quote to professional installation.

As you begin your research, think about our designers’ favorite blinds for large windows:

  • Sheer shades with built-in blinds
  • Panel track blinds
  • Vertical blinds

1. Sheer Shades with Built-In Blinds

If you like the look of drapes but dislike cleaning them, sheer shades with built-in blinds are a smart alternative. These top-of-the-line shades have adjustable vanes hang between two pieces of fabric. The light-filtering shades diffuse bright sunlight into a warm glow, while the vanes provide superb light control when you want it. Available in vertical and horizontal styles, you’ll be able to find the right options for your needs with these window coverings.

Vertical Sheer Shades with Built-In Blinds

Hunter Douglas Luminette® privacy sheers are a modern take on vertical blinds. These sheers have vertical vanes settled between two layers of fabric, making them a great option for big windows.

You won’t have to fuss with cords or wands when you want to adjust your window treatments. You can easily transform yours into electric window blinds with PowerView® automation. You’ll be able to adjust Luminette sheers with a tap on your phone, or your voice when linked with Amazon Alexa, Siri® on your Apple device or Google Assistant.

Luminette also flatters your one-of-a-kind home, instead of detracting from it. When shut, its SofTrak™ panel tracks are hidden by your sheers. Offered in hundreds of best-selling colors, patterns and textures, you’ll be able to choose just the right style for your home.

Horizontal Sheer Shades with Built-In Blinds

When you’re looking for blackout window blinds, Hunter Douglas Silhouette® delivers. Adding the Duolite® room-darkening integrated shade will give you more control over daylight, making these modern window blinds a great solution for home cinemas or bedrooms.

2. Panel Track Blinds

If your home has expansive or wide windows that show off dramatic views, consider Hunter Douglas Skyline®. These panel track window blinds fit together when open, letting you see more of your view and daylight. Available in your choice of more than 600 fabrics, you’ll be able to show off your personal style when Skyline is drawn.

3. Vertical Blinds

Window treatment styles change over time, but vertical window blinds are a timeless look for any type of home. You’ll be able to customize your picture window blinds with aluminum, vinyl or fabric styles available in a collection of colors and textures.
