When your window is larger than four feet wide, adjustable window treatments that are also fashionable may seem difficult to find in Boise. But more options are available than you might think.
Yes, some window treatment options such as blinds may be able to cover the wide window. But with multiple blinds that butt up to each other without a frame, blinds don’t show off your window. Nor do they offer adequate control over light and temperature.
That’s why we compiled these 3 window treatment ideas for wide windows in Boise. So you can better understand how to choose coverings for your wide windows.
1. Shutters For Wide Windows
Wide windows are exposed to a lot of light. Plantation shutters offer ultimate light control. They cover the entire window using multiple panels within a frame, giving you a finished look. Every shutter panel can swing out on its hinge. And the louvers on each panel tilt closed to prevent light from coming through. The frame that surrounds the panels ties the entire window treatment together, making it look finished on your window.
You can adjust each shutter panel to let in as much light as you want with a tilt rod. The louvers all tilt in unison, so more light can stream in quicker. Depending on your window’s size, you may even choose to have a divider rail installed. With a divider rail, you can control the top louvers separately from the bottom louvers.
Wide windows have a lot of glass, which can mean higher utility bills. Certain plantation shutters, such as Polywood®, can block heat transfer and airflow. And that means more energy savings for your home.
Privacy is a concern when you have wide windows with a lot of glass. Plantation shutters for wide windows shut all the way to block off both curious eyes looking in and light. Adjust the louvers upward to let some light into the room while keeping your space private.
2. Window Film For Wide Windows
Your wide windows let you see the beautiful view of your Boise neighborhood. Window film allows you to see that view without any distractions. Window film that’s applied to your wide window can add a little bit of colored tint to the glass. You can select from multiple levels of darkening to add some privacy. The darker tints won’t block your view from the inside looking out.
Window film also blocks UV rays coming through the glass. Because wide windows are exposed to more sunlight than narrow windows, it’s essential that you cover them with window film if you’re not going to install any other treatment. It will protect your furniture and carpets from fading.
3. Shades For Wide Windows
Shades are great for enhancing wide windows. Windows that are extremely wide may require you to install more than one shade across the width of the window to cover it entirely. However, some shades are available in wide widths. Roll them down for less brightness. You can add a room darkening liner to control light and privacy.
Look out at the view outside by simply rolling your shades up. When they’re retracted, shades create a gorgeous accent for your wide window.
