3 Window Treatments For Wide Windows In Destin, Florida

Eric Ramsey

If your window is four feet or wider, adjustable window treatments that are also beautiful may seem hard to find in Destin. But more options exist than you think.

It’s true that some window treatment options such as blinds can cover your wide window. But when multiple blinds butt up to each other without a frame, they don’t show the window off. They also don’t give you enough control over light and temperature.

So we brought together these 3 window treatment ideas for wide windows in Destin to help you know how to cover your wide windows.

1. Shutters For Wide Windows

Wide windows are exposed to lots of light. Plantation shutters help you control that light. The shutters cover the entire window by using multiple panels within a frame that gives you a finished look. Every shutter panel has a hinge so that it can swing open. The louvers on each panel can be tilted down to prevent light from coming through. The frame encasing the panels ties the window treatment together, giving it a seamless look on your wide window.

With a tilt rod you can adjust the amount of light you let in per individual shutter panel. The louvers all tilt in unison, so you can let in more natural light more quickly. Depending on how big your windows are, you might even consider having a divider rail installed. With a divider rail, you can adjust the bottom louvers separately from the top louvers.

Wide windows have a lot of glass, which can lead to high energy bills. Some plantation shutters, such as Polywood®, can significantly reduce heat transfer and airflow. And that directly translates into energy savings for you.

All that glass also means that you have to have a window treatment that provides some privacy. Plantation shutters for wide windows close all the way to block out both curious eyes looking in and light. Angle the louvers upward to let some light into the room while maintaining your privacy.

2. Window Film For Wide Windows

Your wide windows give you access to a beautiful view of your Destin neighborhood. With window film, you can appreciate that view without any distractions in the way. Window film that’s applied to your wide window may add a colored tint to the window. You can pick from multiple levels of darkening to add some privacy. The darkened tints won’t obstruct your view from the inside looking out.

Window film also blocks UV rays that come through the glass. Since wide windows let more sunlight through than narrow windows, it’s best to cover them with window film if you’re not going to install any other window treatment. Window film will guard your carpets and furniture against fading.

3. Shades For Wide Windows

Shades can dress up wide windows. Windows that are very wide may require using more than one shade across the width of the window to cover it completely. But some shades are available in wide widths. When you want less brightness, roll the shades down. You can add a room darkening liner for increased privacy and light control.
