Treating Large Windows? Follow These Helpful Tips
If you have a home that has large windows, it can be a mixed blessing. For starters, large windows brighten up your interior space during sunny days. However, in the wintertime these windows when left untreated are incredibly inefficient, heat from your home escapes them and they can run up your heating bills. Another issue that homeowners face is it can be difficult to treat these windows. More fabric is required; they also need a sturdy lifting mechanism to ensure that the fabric stays in place.
We wanted to help provide you with some options for your large over sized windows. There are plenty of different things you can do to make your space more efficient!
When You Pick Out Your Treatments, Use a Continuous Cord
The continuous cord lift option was built specifically for large windows. The continuous cord allows the shade to move up and down evenly, ensuring that the shade’s fabric doesn’t sag or ripple. It can accommodate widths all the way to 108” and shades in height all the way to 120”. Shades with continuous cords also operate by simply pulling up and down on the cord with one hand, so this is a great option if you need to treat oversized windows.
