3 Window Treatment Solutions For Wide Windows In Denver, Colorado

Gary Harding

If your window is more than four feet wide, adjustable window treatments that are also in style may seem tricky to find in Denver. But more options exist than you think.

Yes, some window treatment options like blinds are able to cover your wide window. But with multiple blinds that butt up to each other without a frame, blinds don’t show the window off. Nor do they offer control over temperature and light.

That’s why we offer these 3 window treatment ideas for wide windows in Denver. So you can have a better understanding for how to cover your wide windows.

1. Shutters For Wide Windows

Wide windows are exposed to a lot of light. Plantation shutters help you control that light. They cover the entire window using multiple panels within a frame, giving you a seamless look. Each shutter panel can swing out along its hinge. Each panel’s louvers tilt closed to block out the light. The frame that encases the panels ties the whole window treatment together, giving it a finished look on your wide window.

You can adjust each shutter panel to let in as much light as you want with a tilt rod. The louvers all tilt together, so more light can come in quicker. Depending on your window’s size, you may even decide to have a divider rail installed. A divider rail lets you control the top louvers separately from the bottom louvers.

Wide windows have a lot of glass, which can mean higher energy bills. Some plantation shutters, such as Polywood®, can significantly reduce airflow and heat transfer. And that means extra energy savings for your home.

Windows with so much glass means that you need a window treatment that gives you control over privacy. Plantation shutters for wide windows close completely to block off both curious eyes looking in and light. Tilt the louvers upward to let some light into the room while keeping your space private.

2. Window Film For Wide Windows

Your wide windows provide you with a wonderful view of your Denver neighborhood. With window film, you can enjoy that view without any distractions in the way. When applied to your wide window, the film can add a little bit of colored tint to the glass. You can pick from many levels of darkening to add some privacy. The window film won’t block your view when you’re inside the house looking out.

In addition, window film blocks UV rays coming through the glass. Since wide windows let more sunlight through than narrow windows, it’s essential that you cover them with window film if you’re not going to install a separate window treatment. Window film will guard your carpets and furniture against fading.

3. Shades For Wide Windows

Shades enhance wide windows. Extremely wide windows may mean you need to install more than one shade across the width of the window to cover it completely. But there are shades that come in wide widths. When you want less brightness, roll the shades down. And you can add a room darkening liner to control privacy and light.

See the view outside by simply rolling your shades up. Even when they’re retracted, shades provide a cozy accent for your wide window.
