When your home has gorgeous casement or bay windows, you want to be able to enjoy them in multiple ways. You may feel guilty covering them, but the right window treatments will only add to the window’s aesthetic, not take away from it. It’s important to remember that outfitting your windows is like choosing an outfit for yourself. You like the way certain styles look more than others, and the same applies to your windows. At Blind & Shutter Gallery, our design team can help every window in your home look its best.
Unlike single-hung or double-hung windows, casement windows open outwards with the turn of a crank. Casement windows have a modern look and open more fully than other window types, which let those refreshing sea breezes move through your home with ease. This type of window is also more secure than other styles as it’s difficult to operate the crank mechanism from outside.
We recommend a window covering that hangs above the window and outside the casing. Duette® Honeycomb Shades and Designer Roller Shades mesh well with these windows' clean, contemporary lines. Honeycomb shades are available in an array of fabrics and opacities and provide superior insulation to help keep your coastal home cooler. Roller shades are also offered in hundreds of materials varying from sheer to opaque. Consider Designer Roller Duolite® Shades for the best of both worlds, a light-filtering sheer and room-darkening liner on a single roller.
Picture windows are meant to be attention-grabbing, so you need a window treatment that is easy to operate to take advantage of the stunning view. When it comes to covering expansive areas of glass, vertical blinds offer first-rate performance with an uncomplicated operation.
Skyline® Gliding Window Panels stack tightly when open for a flawless view of the outdoors. Their rich fabric and texture provide a visually engaging backdrop for the room when the panels are closed. With over 600 colors and the most comprehensive fabric collection available on the market, you can effortlessly add these vertical blinds to any decor scheme.
Vertical Solutions® Vertical Blinds will cover your picture windows with a subtle style perfect for minimalist decor. You can choose from various fabrics or opt for easy-care vinyl for homes with busy children or pets. Tilt the slats up to 180 degrees for uncomfortable variable light control. Cadence® Soft Vertical Blinds are perfect if you want the drama and romance of drapery with the practical functionality of vertical blinds. The curved vanes absorb sound to improve a room’s acoustics while reducing outside noise. Your Cadence® Soft Vertical Blinds will consistently deliver smooth operation and minimal light gaps courtesy of the patented headrail design.
