Seven of the Best Window Treatments for Large Windows

Expansive windows are a fantastic way to relate to your surroundings and add more natural light into your home. But they can also be a challenge to cover due to their width.

Drapes can be hard to move, trap dust easily and are nearly impossible to freshen. And other kinds, especially ready-made window treatments, may bow or droop as time goes on.

When you partner with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Metro Detroit, you can easily make the right option for your rooms. And select the ideal operating system for your blinds or shades, such as PowerView®, which gives you the ability to move and set schedules for your window treatments with your smartphone.

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

As you get started gathering inspiration, here are a few of our most-loved best window treatments for large windows in Detroit.

1. Plantation Shutters

Although plantation shutters have been available for years, they are still a homeowner favorite. They’re quick to dust, are virtually maintenance-free and may even reduce your utility bills.

Selecting the ideal material for your plantation shutters is essential to keep them from becoming misshapen on big windows. We suggest wood, solid polymer or a mixture of the two to keep your shutters in good condition for many years.

Available in many stain and paint colors, wood is the lightest and strongest material. Polymer shutters, frequently customized in white, provide powerful insulating performance you’ll likely notice on your monthly heating and cooling expenses.

Receive the best features of both materials with our popular Classic shutters. These shutters are known for extra-strong hardwood frames and energy-conserving solid polymer louvers to keep your heating and cooling inside.

If you want wood shutters that stand out, check with your Louver Shop of Metro Detroit consultant about our Heritage shutters. These shutters are created from the best American hardwoods and feature wide panels for a deluxe look.

To see more of the view, personalize your shutters with a bypass or bifold track frame so you can effortlessly get them out of the way. And, inquire about our PerfectView™ tilt rod, which is hidden on the reverse of the shutter panel, for an even greater view.

2. Panel Track Blinds

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

Flaunt your personality when the gliding panels are shut with over 600 fabrics, textures and colors. When the panels are open, they fit together precisely out of the way for a wider view.

3. Sheer Vertical Blinds

Sheer vertical blinds aren’t your mom’s vertical blinds. Luminette® merges all the things you enjoy about sheer shades and blinds in one chic window treatment.

The sheers turn strong rays into a gentle glow, while the floating blinds offer extra privacy. You can also customize your shades with an extra 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’s alike to Luminette, there’s Silhouette®.

With S-shaped vanes nestled between two sheers, this shade gives the appearance of curtains with the functionality of blinds. The sheers diffuse glaring rays into a light glow, while the vanes offer precise control over privacy.

You can also enhance Silhouette by adding ClearView® Shadings, which provide an open view of your surroundings, and Duolite®, which incorporates a room-darkening shade.

5. Honeycomb Shades

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

These shades change bright sunlight into a warm glow. And their curved design holds on to air to keep indoor temperatures regulated and utility bills down.

6. Roman Shades

Enjoy the style of fabric shades but desire a window treatment that stands out when closed?

Show off your house’s style with Vignette® contemporary Roman shades, which highlight flat or contoured folds when down. These folds transform into orderly 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 further light control.

7. Roller Shades

For a clean appearance 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 complements your home.

These screen shades deliver UV protection for areas in your residence that get the greatest amount of light, like sunrooms or patios. By diverting up to 96% of damaging rays, these window treatments help keep your furniture and flooring from becoming bleached.
