Architecturally, tall windows can bring a lot to a home or room, creating visual interest and adding great natural light. However, it can seem daunting to treat those windows. Luckily, Hunter Douglas, the leader in window treatment innovation, has a number of great solutions, all with different features and benefits. At Window Treats serving Monmouth Beach, we’ll be more than happy to show you any or all of these treatment styles in person—just speak with one of our consultants today.
Challenges to Solve
Tall windows offer lots of natural light, but that can make a room too bright, too warm, and susceptible to harmful UV rays. Plus, that much area of glass can invite ways to lose inside air to the outside or have outside air seep in, which can impact your energy use and bills. And you don’t want to lose the dramatic impact of the window to a dull, boring covering. And finally, those taller windows might invite peepers, which can be a privacy issue. All of these challenges could demand solutions, and Hunter Douglas is on the case.
Tall Window Solutions From Hunter Douglas
Depending on your situation, you might only need to address one or two of the challenges outlined above, or you might need to address them all. Here are some options and their benefits:
- Honeycomb Shades. Cellular (honeycomb) shades are well-known for their energy efficiency. Designed to trap air within their cells (or pockets), these shades provide insulation at the window, keeping outside air out and inside air in. Options include Duette® Honeycomb Shades and, for honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design with extra insulation, Duette Architella®. These shades offer an array of colors and fabrics for versatile in-home style.
- Roman Shades. Long considered an elegant yet classic solution, Roman Shades are known for their eye-catching, streamlined design. You can choose Vignette® Modern Roman Shades or even go to the Design Studio™ to create truly custom window treatments that will add drama and style to your tall window. With textures from sheer to room-darkening opacities, you’re bound to be able to control light the way you want.
- Solar Shades. For amazing UV protection, solar shades are an excellent choice. Blocking out between 86% and 99% of ultraviolet rays, these products can inhibit damage to flooring, artwork, and furniture in your space. Plus, with different opacities, from sheer to opaque, to choose from, you can have great light control as well.
- Solera® Soft Shades. This product is a beautiful cross between Roman shades and cellular shades and offers beautiful softly sophisticated look to tall windows. You get the look of Roman shades coupled with the energy efficiency of honeycomb shades and the color and fabric options that will give you style for days.
Top-down/bottom-up operation might be a great option for your tall window, because you can control both light and privacy in numerous ways. This option is available on numerous shades, including Duette®, Solera®, and Vignette®. In terms of the lift system you choose, remember that tall windows can be inaccessible or hard to reach, so choosing a system like PowerView® Motorization, which allows you to operate your system remotely, might be for the best.
