3 Best Blinds for Picture Windows

Picture windows provide a wide view of your gorgeous surroundings and ample natural light. Because these windows are so large and their size can vary, we recommend window treatments custom made for your home.

Custom blinds are one of the best options for covering large windows. Unlike curtains, they don’t take a lot of time to clean and many kinds are available as automated blinds. You can move them with your phone or even your voice, when linked with a compatible smart home system.

It’s easy and even fun to customize your new window blinds when you work with Louver Shop of Richmond. We start the process with our free, in-home consultation, where we’ll bring the showroom to your home. Your local design consultant will help you make a one-of-kind solution for your home during this no-obligation meeting. Then your designer will be with you every step of the way, from free quote to professional installation.

As you begin your research, consider 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 like the style of drapes but don’t like cleaning them, sheer shades with built-in blinds are a wise alternative. These premium shades have adjustable vanes hang between two pieces of fabric. The light-filtering shades transform bright sunlight into a welcoming glow, while the vanes offer outstanding light control when you want it. Available in vertical and horizontal styles, you’ll be able to find the right options for your needs 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 good choice for big windows.

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

Luminette also complements your one-of-a-kind home, instead of detracting from it. When closed, its SofTrak™ panel tracks are hidden by your sheers. Available in hundreds of popular colors, patterns and textures, you’ll be able to choose just the right style 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 give you more control over daylight, 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, consider Hunter Douglas Skyline®. These panel track window blinds fit together when open, letting you see more of your view and sunlight. Available in your choice of more than 600 fabrics, you’ll be able to show off your unique style when Skyline is closed.

3. Vertical Blinds

Window treatment styles can come and go, but vertical window blinds are a timeless look for any home style. You’ll be able to customize your picture window blinds with aluminum, vinyl or fabric styles available in a collection of colors and textures.
