Shades for wide windows in your home
Wide windows require special coverings with light and privacy options. Made in the Shade shares some ideas for shades and window coverings for wide windows in your Prescott home.
Blinds for wide windows
You will want blinds that offer fingertip control to achieve a variety of lighting effects. Dark blinds are great for a dramatic effect, but remember, you will need to dust them more often than light-colored blinds. Lighter colored blinds can visually enlarge and provide more light from a wide window.
Metal versus vinyl blinds
Metal and vinyl horizontal blinds are often used for wide windows. Operating mechanisms are stronger on metal blinds. Also, vinyl blinds are affected by temperature extremes, which result in sagging and even cracking when used in wide windows.
Soft blinds can be a great option for wide windows. These specialty blinds are available in both vertical and horizontal slats. Because of their room-darkening and light-filtering options they can be a luxurious alternative for large window openings. Soft cellular shades or pleated fabric provide a variety of lighting effect choices and are a lighter weight option for wide windows.
