Wide windows are a great feature to have in your home because they allow so much natural light to pour into your space, which is great if you have plants or limited lighting options. They can also make almost any view better. The only downside to wide windows is how overwhelming they can be when it comes to finding the perfect window treatments. Whether you are looking for a functional or decorative window treatment in Edmonton, here are 4 great ideas to get you inspired!

1. Roman Shades

Roman shades are a simple yet stylish solution for wide windows. They can be hung across multiple windows or over individual panels of glass. This specific window treatment allows you to customize the height of each shade depending on where the sun hits to optimize lighting and privacy. If you mount the roman shades a bit higher than the window, it adds even more scale and height to your windows. We carry all three of Hunter Douglas Roman Shades, which combine the look of soft fabric folds with the ease and convenience of a shade.

2. Roller Shades

Just like roman blinds, roller shades can be used for wide windows, individual panels of glass, or multiple windows that are grouped together. This is a great window treatment option for kitchens or large curved windows. Our collection of HungerDouglas roller shades and solar roller shades offer excellent light control while adding a clean and modern look to your space. With such a wide range of fabrics and materials to choose from, you can find the perfect fit for your home.

3. Sheer Shades

You can have a lot of fun choosing shades for a wide window! Sheer shades create a very soft and airy atmosphere — perfect for a bedroom, living room or any room—. HunterDouglas’ innovative light-diffusing sheers and shadings transform light and provide UV protection for your furniture and artwork! Choose from their Silhouette® shades which feature soft adjustable fabric that beautifully diffuses harsh sunlight. Or shop the Pirouette® collection which enhances your view while still maintaining your privacy.

4. Vertical Blinds

When choosing window treatments for large windows, you must consider the dimensions of the window. While horizontal blinds are a great choice for tall windows, they don’t always work very well for wide windows. Instead, we recommend you choose vertical blinds or panel track sliding blinds. Not only do their dimensions better suit wide windows, but they add height and formality to any room. Hunter Douglas collection Luminette® blinds come in an array of sheer and drapery-like fabrics that give you unlimited control over the lighting in your space without compromising on your privacy!
