Seven of the Best Window Treatments for Large Windows

Big windows are a fantastic way to relate to the outdoors and bring in a greater amount of sunshine into your home. But they can also be difficult to cover due to their size.

Drapes can be hard to open, capture dust easily and are difficult to wash. And other styles, specifically ready-made window treatments, may bow or lose their shape as time passes.

When you collaborate with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Pittsburgh, you can easily design the ideal solution for your space. And select the ideal operating system for your blinds or shades, like PowerView®, which allows you to move and set schedules for your window treatments with your web-enabled device.

You’ll also receive many free pluses, such as a consultation, professional measurements and a Louver Shop Complete Comfort™ price quote. All with no pressure or obligation.

As you begin gathering inspiration, here are several of our favorite best window treatments for large windows in Pittsburgh.

1. Plantation Shutters

Even though plantation shutters have been available for years, they continue as a homeowner favorite. They’re simple to wash, are almost maintenance-free and might even lower your energy bills.

Picking the ideal material for your plantation shutters is crucial to keep them from drooping on big windows. We recommend wood, solid polymer or a blend of the two to keep your shutters in good condition for years to come.

Available in many stain and paint colors, wood is the lightest and strongest material. Polymer shutters, often customized in white, provide powerful insulating effectiveness you’ll likely realize on your monthly heating and cooling bill.

Get the finest features of both materials with our most-wanted Classic shutters. These shutters feature sturdy furniture-grade wood frames and energy-saving solid polymer louvers to keep your heating and cooling inside.

If you want wood shutters that are distinctive, ask your Louver Shop of Pittsburgh professional about our Heritage shutters. These shutters are made from the best American hardwoods and include wide panels for a premium appearance.

To view more of your surroundings, personalize your shutters with a bypass or bifold track frame so you can easily get them out of the way. And, check with your designer 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 a contemporary look for floor-to-ceiling windows, there’s Skyline®.

Display your personality when the gliding panels are closed with more than 600 fabrics, textures and colors. When the panels are open, they gather precisely out of the way for a better view.

3. Sheer Vertical Blinds

Sheer vertical blinds aren’t unfashionable. Luminette® blends everything you like about sheer shades and blinds in one modern window treatment.

The sheers change harsh light into a welcoming glow, while the floating blinds give additional privacy. You can also customize your shades with an extra room-darkening panel.

With Luminette fabrics available by the yard, you can coordinate your new window treatments with matching décor like pillows and duvet covers.


4. Horizontal Sheer Shades

If you want a horizontal shade that looks like Luminette, there’s Silhouette®.

With S-shaped vanes floating between two sheers, this shade provides the feel of drapery with the versatility of blinds. The sheers transform glaring sunlight into a welcoming glow, while the vanes deliver detailed privacy control.

You can additionally enhance Silhouette by using ClearView® Shadings, which deliver a wide view of your surroundings, and Duolite®, which has a room-darkening shade.

5. Honeycomb Shades

Save energy in style with Sonnette™ cellular roller shades. These contemporary shades incorporate the top parts of traditional roller shades and energy-conserving honeycomb shades.

These shades change bright sunlight into a light glow. And their curved design traps air to keep inside temperatures balanced and energy costs inexpensive.

6. Roman Shades

Enjoy the look of fabric shades but desire a window treatment that catches your attention when drawn?

Show off your house’s design with Vignette® contemporary Roman shades, which show off flat or contoured folds when closed. These folds transform into orderly stacks once you move the shade.

When creating these shades, you can choose from premium fabrics in sheer to room-darkening opacities. A Duolite® roller shade can be added for further light control.

7. Roller Shades

For a classic appearance for bright rooms, there’s Designer Screen Shades. With hundreds of fabric possibilities and several opacities, you’re likely to come across a color and pattern that fits your residence.

These screen shades deliver UV protection for rooms in your residence that attract the most natural light, like sunrooms or patios. By stopping up to 96% of damaging rays, these window treatments help keep your furniture and flooring from becoming bleached.
