What blinds are best for large windows? We’ve spent 130 years learning what is and what isn’t right for certain windows or doors.
Our recommendations are always based on 2 things.
- Reliability. Will it last? We will never recommend blinds that we know are not suitable and will not last.
- Easy to use. If the blinds are not easy to use, again we would not consider them suitable.
Here are our recommendations based on our years of experience.
Vertical Blinds. These are the perfect solution for large windows. Very reliable and easy to use. Tilt the louvres to adjust the light entering the room and simply move the fabric across the rail to allow for a full view of the outdoors.
Multiple fixing points is another reason why vertical blinds would be our blind of choice for your large windows.
Duette Blinds. Also know as honeycomb blinds. Available up to 3300mm wide and up to 3000mm deep you could have one blind to cover your large windows, or you could choose to split it in 2.
I would recommend the side chain operation as this is the most reliable for blinds of this size.
Roller Blinds. Are another option for your windows.
I would recommend having 2 blinds to cover large windows because roller blinds only having a bracket at each end, wide blinds will bow in the centre and cause a ripple in the fabric.
By splitting them in 2 they will be easier to operate and more practical.
Side Chain operation is a good choice, also with the price of remote control as low as £99 per blind this could look great with no cords or chains.
Wooden Venetian Blinds. Can be made up to 3000mm wide, but there is a down side with wooden blinds of this size. THEY ARE VERY HEAVY to lift up and down.
They ate perfect for filtering the light by tilting the slats, but blinds of this size should only be raised and lowered for cleaning the windows. Raised and lowered regularly will affect the longer term reliability of the blind.
I hope this information is of some use in making the decision of which blinds are best for your large windows.
