3 Window Treatments For Wide Windows In Bluff City, TN

May 31, 2016

If your window is larger than four feet wide, window treatments that function and are fashionable may seem hard to find in Bluff City. But more options are available than you realize.

Some window treatment options like blinds are able to cover the wide window. But with multiple blinds that butt up to each other without a frame, blinds don’t showcase your window. And they don’t provide adequate control over temperature and light.

That’s why we offer these 3 window treatment ideas for wide windows in Bluff City. And now you can know what works best for your wide windows.

1. Shutters For Wide Windows

Wide windows are exposed to lots of light. And plantation shutters let you control all that light. They cover the entire window by using multiple panels inside a frame that gives you a seamless look. Each shutter panel has a hinge so that it can swing out. The louvers on each panel tilt down to block out light. The frame surrounding the panels brings the whole window treatment together, giving it a finished look on your wide window.

You can adjust each individual shutter panel to let in as much light as you want with a tilt rod. The louvers all tilt together, so you can let in more light more quickly. Depending on the size of your windows, you might also consider having a divider rail installed. A divider rail lets you adjust the top louvers separately from the bottom louvers.

Wide windows have a lot of glass, which can lead to high energy bills. Some plantation shutters, such as Polywood®, can minimize heat transfer and airflow. And that means more energy savings for you.

Windows with so much glass means that you have to have a window treatment that provides some privacy. Plantation shutters for wide windows shut completely to block out both curious eyes looking in and light. Adjust the louvers upward to let light into the room while maintaining your privacy.

2. Window Film For Wide Windows

Your wide windows let you see the pretty view of your Bluff City neighborhood. Window film allows you to enjoy that view without any distractions in the way. Window film that’s applied to your wide window may add a tint of color to the window. You can pick from multiple levels of darkening to add some privacy. The darkened tints won’t block your view from the inside looking out.

Window film also blocks UV rays that pass through the glass. Since wide windows let more sunlight through than narrow windows, it’s best to cover them with window film if you’re not going to use any other window treatment. Window film will protect your carpets and furniture from fading.

3. Shades For Wide Windows

Shades can dress up wide windows. Windows that are extremely wide may require using more than one shade over the window for complete coverage. But some shades are available in wide widths. Roll them down for less light. And you can add a room darkening liner to control light as well as privacy.

See the view outside by simply rolling your shades up. When they’re retracted, shades create a gorgeous accent for your wide window.
