3 Window Treatment Solutions For Wide Windows In Tampa, FL

Eric Ramsey

When your window is more than four feet wide, window treatments that function and are beautiful may seem difficult to find in Tampa. But there are more options than you realize.

It’s true that some window treatment options like blinds can cover the wide window. But when you have multiple blinds butting up to each other without a frame, they don’t show off your window. Nor do they provide enough control over light and temperature.

That’s why we offer these 3 window treatment ideas for wide windows in Tampa. Now you can understand 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. The shutters cover the entire window using multiple panels within a frame that gives you a finished look. Every shutter panel has a hinge so that it can swing open. And the louvers on each panel can be tilted closed to block out as much light as possible. The frame that encases the panels ties the entire window treatment together so that it looks finished on your window.

With a tilt rod you can adjust the amount of light you let in on each individual shutter panel. The louvers all move in unison, so you can let in more natural light quicker. Depending on how large your windows are, you might even decide to have a divider rail installed. With a divider rail, you can adjust the bottom louvers separately from the top louvers.

Wide windows have a lot of glass, which can lead to high energy bills. Some plantation shutters, such as Polywood®, can block airflow and heat transfer. And that means more energy savings for you.

Privacy is also a concern with wide windows that have a lot of glass. Plantation shutters for wide windows tilt shut completely to block off both light and curious eyes looking in. Angle the louvers upward to let some light into the room while creating a private space.

2. Window Film For Wide Windows

Your wide windows provide you with a wonderful view of your Tampa neighborhood. Window film allows you to enjoy that view without any distractions in the way. Window film that’s applied to your wide window may add a little bit of colored tint to the glass. You can select from a range of darkening to give you some privacy. The window film won’t obstruct your view from the inside looking out.

In addition, window film blocks UV rays that come through the glass. Since wide windows let more sunlight through than narrow windows, it’s best to cover them with window film if you’re not going to use any other treatment. Window film will prevent your furniture and carpets from fading.

3. Shades For Wide Windows

Shades can dress up wide windows. Windows that are very wide may require using multiple shades across the width of the window to cover it entirely. But there are shades that come in wide widths. When you want less brightness, roll the shades down. And add a room darkening liner to control privacy as well as light.

Get access to the view outside by simply rolling your shades up. When they’re retracted, shades add a gorgeous accent for your wide window.
