Seven of the Best Window Treatments for Large Windows

Big windows are a fantastic way to connect with your surroundings and introduce more natural light into your residence. But they can also be hard to cover because of their width.

Drapes can be difficult to open, capture dust easily and are hard to freshen. And other types, specifically ready-made window treatments, might bow or sag as time passes.

When you partner with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Columbia, you can easily create the ideal option for your needs. And pick the right operating system for your blinds or shades, such as PowerView®, which enables you to move and create schedules for your window treatments with your smartphone.

You’ll also get many free advantages, including a consultation, professional measurements and a Louver Shop Complete Comfort™ price quote. All with no pressure or obligation.

As you start collecting ideas, here are several of our most-loved best window treatments for large windows in Columbia.

1. Plantation Shutters

Despite the fact plantation shutters have been on the market for years, they remain a top choice for homeowners. They’re quick to wash, are almost maintenance-free and could even decrease your heating and cooling expenses.

Finding the right material for your plantation shutters is essential to prevent them from sagging on tall windows. We recommend wood, solid polymer or a blend of the two to keep your shutters looking new for years to come.

Available in many stain and paint colors, wood is the lightest and strongest material. Polymer shutters, commonly customized in white, provide mighty insulating capabilities you’ll likely realize on your monthly heating and cooling costs.

Enjoy the best features of both materials with our most-wanted Classic shutters. These shutters have extra-strong American hardwood frames and energy-conserving solid polymer louvers to keep your heating and cooling within your home.

If you want wood shutters that make a statement, ask your Louver Shop of Columbia consultant about our Heritage shutters. These shutters are crafted from the finest American hardwoods and have extra-thick panels for a luxurious finish.

To see more of your outdoors, personalize your shutters with a bypass or bifold track frame so you can easily shift them out of the way. And, inquire about our PerfectView™ tilt rod, which is obscured on the back of the shutter panel, for an even less obstructed view.

2. Panel Track Blinds

For an ultramodern appearance for floor-to-ceiling windows, there’s Skyline®.

Display your style when the gliding panels are closed with upward of 600 fabrics, textures and colors. When the panels are open, they gather precisely out of the way for a wider 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 contemporary window treatment.

The sheers transform harsh sunlight into a welcoming glow, while the floating blinds give added privacy. You can also personalize your shades with an additional 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 are looking for a horizontal shade that’s identical to Luminette, there’s Silhouette®.

With S-shaped vanes placed between two sheers, this shade provides the look of curtains with the versatility of blinds. The sheers transform bright sunlight into a welcoming glow, while the vanes provide detailed privacy management.

You can also personalize Silhouette by adding ClearView® Shadings, which offer an open view of the outdoors, and Duolite®, which incorporates a room-darkening shade.

5. Honeycomb Shades

Conserve energy fashionably with Sonnette™ cellular roller shades. These up-to-date shades incorporate the most desired parts of traditional roller shades and energy-efficient honeycomb shades.

These shades diffuse bright sunlight into a warm glow. And their curved design holds on to air to keep interior temperatures even and heating and cooling expenses low.

6. Roman Shades

Enjoy the look of fabric shades but desire a window treatment that catches your attention when drawn?

Complement your house’s décor with Vignette® modern Roman shades, which show off flat or contoured folds when in use. These folds transform into tidy creases once you raise the shade.

When creating these shades, you can pick from luxury fabrics in sheer to room-darkening opacities. A Duolite® roller shade can be incorporated for additional light control.

7. Roller Shades

For a sleek look for sunny rooms, there’s Designer Screen Shades. With hundreds of fabric choices and multiple opacities, you’re certain to come across a color and pattern that fits your home.

These screen shades deliver UV protection for rooms in your residence that attract the most rays, like sunrooms or patios. By stopping up to 96% of dangerous rays, these window treatments help stop your furniture and flooring from fading.
