Window Treatment for Large Windows
 by: Chris Lontok

Large doors are perfect canvasses for window treatments. You can experiment on draperies and curtains to maximize or minimize the size of the door. The right treatment will serve as a bonus interior design accessory. Home improvement shops in Tampa usually have a wide range of window treatment options for any type of window.

Floor-length curtains and draperies are the best choice for large windows. These types of window treatments are classic and traditional choices for wide windows. These large curtains and draperies are an excellent alternative to panel track blinds or vertical blinds, which are common choices for modern homes. Also, remember to consider the size and styling of the curtain rod and curtain grommets which also serve as accessories to curtains.

Graphic shapes and patterns on curtains and draperies give a modern feel to a room. Bold colors also liven up a neutral-colored room. These designs provide better dimension and depth to any dull room. However, be careful in choosing colors and patterns when youíre putting in window treatments for smaller rooms. Dark colored treatments should be avoided because they make a small area look even smaller. Hunter Douglas has a wonderful line of large curtains and draperies in various styles and fabrics. A lot of home improvement stores in Tampa carry Hunter Douglas products.

Blinds are a whole other deal when it comes to putting them on large windows. Itís much harder to choose blinds. A vertical window blind, such as a vertical blind or panel track sliding blind, usually works best on windows that are wider than they are tall, and add height and formality to a room. Horizontal window blinds on the other hand, such as wood blinds, work best on windows that are taller than they are wide, and enhance a cozy and casual decor.

If you plan to go for blinds, consider a piece that can cover the size of your window while still providing the light control, privacy and functionality you're looking for. Also, wood blinds are very heavy and are not a good choice for large windows where the blind needs to be raised often. Try coordinating panel track blinds for your large windows with roman or roller shades on your smaller windows. Artistic Windows of Tampa provides a wide range of choices for all types of blinds.

Shades as window treatment for large windows can also be a challenge. Solar shades are perfect for large windows especially if the room gets a lot of sun exposure. Solar shades filter harmful UV rays and regulate a nice and comfortable temperature for a room. Hunter Douglas has a line of solar shades that can fit an interior design scheme. Also, opt for shades that are easy to use and control. Some people find shades difficult to use. A simple roll up and roll down mechanism goes a long way.
