If you have large windows on your property, then you may already know that you need special blinds for them.
Most ready-made blinds are made for standard-sized windows, making them impractical for large windows and openings. Also, not every style of blinds works well with the wide spaces of large windows, so you’ll need to find the right design to match their look and function.
Roller blinds let you cover (or uncover) your large windows easily, making them a great option if you simply want blinds for privacy or to keep the sun out of your room. The roll-up design of roller blinds means you’ll barely see them on your windows when they’re fully drawn, putting all the focus on your windows and the view outside. If you want maximum visibility and views from your large windows, then roller blinds should be one of your top choices.
Vertical blinds are popular choices for covering large windows because of their ability to cover large areas quickly and efficiently. The vertical orientation of its slats makes it great for covering wider windows, letting you cover the entire width of your large window from side to side quickly. Most vertical blinds also feature a quick drawing mechanism, allowing you to slide or draw them in place easily to instantly create more shade and privacy.
If you have unconventionally large windows or wide spaces that you want to cover, then panel glide blinds are your best bet. These blinds are made with larger and wider slats, providing more effective cover for your windows than other blinds. Many panel glides also feature intuitive tracking systems that let you slide its panels in place quickly. When fully drawn out, panel glides form a wall-like covering, making them an ideal choice for maximum coverage on your large windows.
Aside from choosing what type of blinds suits your large windows, you’ll also need to decide its level of transparency. One of the best things about large windows is the amount of natural light that they can let through, so make sure you choose a type that matches your preferences.
If you want to preserve much of the light that large windows bring in, then light filtering blinds are the ones to get. These blinds filter sunlight without completely shutting them out, softening the light so that it’s more comfortable on your eyes. When paired with large windows, you’ll get plenty of natural light to brighten your room with these blinds without sacrificing your privacy.
On the other hand, if you want complete sunlight protection and privacy, then blockout blinds are better. These blinds block as much sunlight and visibility as possible, giving your room more privacy from the outside world.
