3 Best Blinds for Picture Windows

Picture windows offer a full view of your beautiful surroundings and lots of natural light. Because these windows are so big and their dimensions can vary, we recommend window treatments custom made for your home.

Custom blinds are one of the top options for covering large windows. Unlike curtains, they are easy to clean and many styles are available as automated blinds. You can adjust them with your phone or even your voice, when used with a compatible smart home system.

It’s simple and even fun to customize your new window blinds when you partner with Louver Shop of Pittsburgh. We begin the process with our free, in-home consultation, where we’ll bring the showroom to your living room. Your local design consultant will help you make a unique solution for your home during this no-pressure meeting. Then your designer will be with you from beginning to end, from free quote to professional installation.

As you start your research, think about our designers’ most loved blinds for large windows:

  • Sheer shades with built-in blinds
  • Panel track blinds
  • Vertical blinds

1. Sheer Shades with Built-In Blinds

If you love the look of drapes but don’t like cleaning them, sheer shades with built-in blinds are a smart alternative. These top-of-the-line shades have adjustable vanes that float between two pieces of fabric. The light-filtering shades transform harsh sunlight into a welcoming glow, while the vanes offer superb light control when you want it. Available in vertical and horizontal styles, you’ll be able to find the right options for your home with these window coverings.

Vertical Sheer Shades with Built-In Blinds

Hunter Douglas Luminette® privacy sheers are a contemporary take on vertical blinds. These sheers have vertical vanes nestled between two layers of fabric, making them a great option for big windows.

You won’t have to struggle with cords or wands when you want to move your window treatments. You can easily transform yours into electric window blinds with PowerView® automation. You’ll be able to move Luminette sheers with a tap on your phone, or your voice when linked with Amazon Alexa, Siri® on your Apple device or Google Assistant.

Luminette also flatters your one-of-a-kind home, instead of detracting from it. When shut, its SofTrak™ panel tracks are hidden by your sheers. Available in hundreds of popular colors, patterns and textures, you’ll be able to find just the right look for your home.

Horizontal Sheer Shades with Built-In Blinds

When you want blackout window blinds, Hunter Douglas Silhouette® delivers. Including the Duolite® room-darkening integrated shade will provide more control over sunlight, making these modern window blinds a great solution for home cinemas or bedrooms.

2. Panel Track Blinds

If your home has floor-to-ceiling or wide windows that show off gorgeous views, look at Hunter Douglas Skyline®. These panel track window blinds fit together when open, letting you see more of your view and natural light. Available in your choice of more than 600 fabrics, you’ll be able to show off your personal style when Skyline is drawn.

3. Vertical Blinds

Window treatment styles change over time, but vertical window blinds are a timeless look for any type of home. You’ll be able to create your own picture window blinds with aluminum, vinyl or fabric styles available in a variety of colors and textures.
