Blinds for larger windows

If you are lucky enough to be able to enjoy the views and additional natural light of having large windows then you are also likely to have been faced with the issue of finding blinds that will fit correctly, whilst also providing the privacy and shading you require.

Adding quality made to measure blinds to wide or high windows will transform your room aesthetically and will give you the functionality to control sunlight, heat and privacy as required.

How to choose blinds for wide or high windows

Large windows are usually the focus of attention within the room, or at least the views that open up in front of you are! The extra natural light that larger windows let into the room should also not be undervalued and be maintained wherever possible. When choosing blinds think whether you need them for practical or decorative use, it is most likely that you would need to combine both. There are lots of style options for all type of blinds so transforming the room with a window covering is easy and more affordable than you may think.

Whichever blind style you choose you can order the exact size of blind you need using our numerous ‘how to measure’ videos.

Top choice for extra wide windows

Vertical blinds thrive as a top choice for single large windows. They can go up to 475 cm in width and 360 cm in the drop. If you have a window that goes all the way up to the ceiling or patio doors, vertical blinds are likely to be a perfect option. They can be ordered to fit neatly within the window recess opening and can be pulled to the side without taking up too much space. Vertical blinds are perfect for offices, schools and universities that usually have larger windows and bigger spaces, as well as any extra-large windows at home.

Moreover, if you choose to buy vertical blinds, you can opt in for colours of your favourite team or brand.

The less familiar option of Panel or Japanese blinds, are also a great option for wide windows. Just make sure you have the wall space for the panels to stack back on to.

Blinds for multiple windows in a row

Multiple joined windows or those close together, can benefit from ordering a number of individual blinds such as roller, venetian or wooden style for example, to give greater flexibility and easier use. In this instance, you could select several colours to create a wow factor!

If you have a bay window in the lounge or bedroom, choose Roman blinds. They look stylish, creating a softer look and feel. Our Roman blinds have the additional feature of blackout thermal lining.

Let the light in

When your view is dull or if you want privacy whilst still letting the light in, try voile blinds. This voile panel blind is a perfect choice for wide windows. Voile roller blinds can be combined for covering multiple windows and improving the look of the room with simplistic style. Remember, voile blinds will let the light in during the night as well as the day so if you need privacy, consider roller blackout blinds in addition.

Something different

This post is about blinds but if you want something different, go for curtains or match them together with blinds for an elegant effect. Curtains are exceptionally good for creating a stylish finish of big rooms with large windows. They are ideal for living rooms or bedrooms. You could also consider ordering ‘mock’ curtains just to frame your window whilst having operational blinds.

Roman blinds combined with curtains

As you can see there are many good options for wide windows. Generally, your choice will depend on personal preferences and style or size of the room and windows. If you know what type of the blind you would like to buy but not sure about the fabric, order free samples on our website. Need more help?
