Those Large Windows: Cover Them to Love Them Again!

We know you love the large windows of your home, but sometimes, it may seem more of a love/hate relationship. Amazing light & incredible views can quickly turn into exhausting temperatures, squinting headaches, damaged furnishings and discomfort from lack of privacy. Did you know you can rid your home from the negatives of those large windows, while maintaining what you love? 


In the Spotlight

Having bare windows might not seem like a big deal, as you go about your day. But, at night? You might feel like you’re on display–even if you’re just sitting around watching TV. When lights are on inside of a home when it gets dark outside, it puts a spotlight on the life inside. If you’d like some privacy, but also want the chance to have light entering during the day, consider Top Down Shades. This feature lets you bring in natural light across the ceiling, while being maintained. Another benefit? The majority of the window is covered, which means you’ll protect your interiors from harsh UV rays and hot temps!

The Case of the Open Floor Plan

The open floor plan home is a popular layout, and those large windows we love are often a feature within this plan. Take a look at inspiration from a recent blog article about how to cover windows in an open floor plan home. Keep in mind that the most important thing to remember is that you don’t have to choose between function OR style. With the right window coverings, they’ll upgrade the way you use your home while they look amazing.

The Coverage Is Custom

We hear this a lot: Does the whole window need to be covered?

Of course not. This is custom coverage, and we want your home to look and feel its best. Sometimes, clients have specialty shaped windows, like angled or arched windows. To cover them, or to leave a portion bare, is completely up to you. A wall of windows is also common. And, if there’s a transom above the windows, you might choose to cover it, or leave it open for the “top down” vibe that brings in light while adding control at the lower level. When you sit down with your window covering designer, we’ll help you talk through these decisions so you get exactly what you want.

Simple Adjustments for an Easy Life

The easier it is to adjust your shades, the easier it will be to enjoy your home. Does that make sense? Those large windows can sometimes remain bare because no one wants the hassle of constant adjustments, or bulky attachments, or hard to reach elements.
