- Vertical Blinds
- Plantation Shutters
- Honeycomb Shades
Vertical blinds are often used to cover sliding glass doors. They open from the left to right (or vice versa) as opposed to from up to down. They include a tool that allows you to open them just a little bit if you would like to get some light, but you do not want to allow others to see in your home. Just as they are a good choice for sliding glass doors, they can be a good choice for large windows. There are many colors and styles you can choose to ensure you get something that matches the décor you have. When you want to fully show off your windows, you can open vertical blinds all the way, and they will be barely noticeable.
You can find plantation shutters in just about any size you need. They are a great, permanent fixture that can be added to your windows and never again replaced. It is true that these solutions are more expensive than most window coverings, but in the long run, they are a good investment since they do not have to be replaced.
Once again, there are many color options and style choices that could work for you. If you want to let in all the light possible, you can open them all the way. If you want to block light, you can adjust the slats to direct light in ways that allow the brightness in without allowing the heat in. In fact, they can be adjusted in many ways that are convenient for you.
One of the biggest advantages of covering your large windows with honeycomb shades is that they are excellent insulators. They are made out of fabric, which is automatically insulating, but the honeycomb design further helps. It works by trapping air between the pieces of fabric to increase insulation. You can find many colors and tones – and even different types of patterns – to get exactly what you are looking for.
