What Are the Best Blinds for Large Windows?

Drapes are cumbersome and heavy at that size, and you can’t always find shades to fit bigger windows. So, what are the best blinds for large windows? Vertical blinds, cellular shades, and Roman shades are all amazing choices

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are a series of window vanes, or slats, which hang from hooks in a railing system that goes across the width of your large windows. They’re available in a variety of materials, including vinyl, fabric, and aluminum, to meet your practical needs. And they’re also available in a variety of colors, hues, finishes, and patterns, to meet your aesthetic needs. They’re the best blinds for large windows because they let you perfectly control your light and privacy levels, either by leaving them pulled back for the perfect sunset or completely closed for a special dinner for two.

Many people wonder about replacing vertical blind slats if one gets broken. It’s a simple process. If you’ve purchased your vertical blinds from Advanced Blinds & Awnings, you can simply reach out to us about your need for new window vanes. We’ll do our best to get you another identical slat to perfectly match your existing vanes.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, are a great way to dress your large windows. They’re available in both horizontal and vertical configurations to perfectly fit your large windows. They’re designed to add an extra layer of insulation on your windows. The cells they’re comprised of trap warm or cold air radiating off your windows, preventing that air from leaching into your home. Cellular shades are available to fit window expanses of up to 12 feet.

Roman Shades

Roman shades are a lovely option when dressing large windows. They’re a fabric window covering that folds up as you raise them. Roman shades are available in a variety of fabrics, from the sheerest, light-filtering choices to the heaviest blackout options. The Design Studio™ Roman Shades we offer from industry-leading company Hunter Douglas have a huge variety of fabric options to match any décor from the classic traditional to the austere modern. The heavier your fabric choice, the more insulation you’ll have for your windows.

Roman shades are also available as a combination of Roman and cellular shades, offering an extra level of insulation to your window coverings.
