Seven of the Best Window Treatments for Large Windows

Expansive windows are a fantastic way to see more of the outdoors and let in more sunlight into your home. But they can also be a challenge to cover on account of their height.

Drapes can be hard to use, attract dust easily and are difficult to wash. And other kinds, specifically ready-made window treatments, might bend or lose their shape as time passes.

When you collaborate with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Raleigh, you can easily make the ideal option for your house. And choose the right operating system for your blinds or shades, like PowerView®, which allows you to move and set schedules for your window treatments with your smartphone.

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

As you start collecting examples, here are a few of our favorite best window treatments for large windows in Raleigh.

1. Plantation Shutters

Despite the fact plantation shutters have been on the market for years, they remain a a favorite for homeowners. They’re quick to dust, are virtually maintenance-free and may even decrease your heating and cooling costs.

Using the ideal material for your plantation shutters is essential to prevent them from sagging on large windows. We advise wood, solid polymer or a combination of the two to keep your shutters looking good for years to come.

Available in a wide range of stain and paint colors, wood is the lightest and strongest material. Polymer shutters, regularly seen in white, provide mighty insulating effectiveness you’ll likely notice on your monthly heating and cooling expenses.

Enjoy the finest features of both materials with our best-selling Classic shutters. These shutters are known for tough hardwood frames and energy-saving solid polymer louvers to keep your heating and cooling inside.

If you’re seeking wood shutters that are distinctive, ask your Louver Shop of Raleigh designer about our Heritage shutters. These shutters are created from the finest American hardwoods and have wide panels for a deluxe finish.

To see more of your surroundings, customize your shutters with a bypass or bifold track frame so you can effortlessly shift them out of the way. And, check with your designer about our PerfectView™ tilt rod, which is concealed on the back of the shutter panel, for an even greater view.

2. Panel Track Blinds

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

Display your style when the gliding panels are shut with more than 600 fabrics, textures and colors. When the panels are open, they gather precisely out of the way for a better view.

3. Sheer Vertical Blinds

Sheer vertical blinds aren’t out of style. Luminette® blends all the features you love about sheer shades and blinds in one contemporary window treatment.

The sheers transform bright light into a gentle glow, while the floating blinds provide added privacy. You can also customize your shades with an additional room-darkening panel.

With Luminette fabrics offered by the yard, you can coordinate your new window treatments with matching décor like pillows and duvet covers.


4. Horizontal Sheer Shades

If you are looking for a horizontal shade that looks like Luminette, there’s Silhouette®.

With S-shaped vanes floating between two sheers, this shade provides the feel of drapes with the versatility of blinds. The sheers diffuse bright rays into a light glow, while the vanes offer precise privacy control.

You can also customize Silhouette by incorporating ClearView® Shadings, which provide a wide view of the outdoors, and Duolite®, which incorporates a room-darkening shade.

5. Honeycomb Shades

Use less energy in style with Sonnette™ cellular roller shades. These up-to-date shades incorporate the most desired aspects of standard roller shades and energy-saving honeycomb shades.

These shades transform harsh sunlight into a warm glow. And their curved pattern holds on to air to keep indoor temperatures regulated and utility expenses down.

6. Roman Shades

Like the style of fabric shades but want a window treatment that stands out when shut?

Highlight your house’s style with Vignette® up-to-date Roman shades, which highlight flat or contoured folds when closed. These folds transform into tidy creases once you move the shade.

When designing these shades, you can pick from premium fabrics in sheer to room-darkening opacities. A Duolite® roller shade is available for even more light control.

7. Roller Shades

For a classic feel for rooms with a lot of natural light, there’s Designer Screen Shades. With hundreds of fabric options and a variety of opacities, you’re likely to find a color and pattern that complements your house.
