Specialist Blinds For Large Windows

Posted: 25 Nov 2022

Large windows are becoming more common in everyday homes. People tend to install grand feature windows such as lanterns, sets of bifold doors and gables to get more natural light into their homes. However, there are downsides to installing large amounts of glazing such as excess glare, heat loss and a lack of privacy which is why many people are looking for blinds for large windows. These large blinds for windows are difficult to purchase from your standard blind shop and often require specialist blinds for fitted results that don’t sag. Below, we’ll delve into the specific areas where specialist blinds are necessary.

Large Door Blinds

Roller Blinds for doors


Installing a set of doors in your home is a great way to open up your living area to the outdoors or enjoy the view from the comfort of your home.  But with large amounts of glazing like this, your heat is likely to escape through windows which makes it difficult to warm your home in winter months.

That’s why we recommend installing bifold door blinds and blinds for sliding doors. We do offer Duette® bifold door blinds that are recess-fit against your door frame, but roller blinds are the best for covering a large area using only one or two blinds. Blinds for bi-fold doors can act as a barrier between your windows and your room – trapping heat in and making the most of those energy bills!

As specialists we have the tools to install wide blinds on floor to ceiling windows and homes with high ceilings. Additionally, with automated blinds it can make controlling large rolls of material much easier.


Blinds for Large Lantern Roof Windows

Lantern roof blinds can’t be purchased from a standard blind shop, and for good reason. It takes a specialist to measure, craft and install these types of blinds so they operate smoothly and don’t sag. Our most popular blinds for lantern roofs are Duette® lantern roof blinds and roller lantern roof blinds.

However, for a large lantern roof we also do extra large lantern roof blinds. These blinds glide across the base of your lantern horizontally, and roller blinds have a zip-like operation system. As aforementioned, our roller blinds are the most effective for covering large amounts of glazing with only one blind. However, some may require two blinds or a support wire depending on size. Additionally, another lantern roof extension idea is to install individual blinds fitted onto your lantern’s individual panes.

Blinds for Large Apex Windows

If you’re searching for gable blinds for large apex windows then you definitely require a blind specialist. The unique angles found in gables often appear simpler to cover then they actually are. Our pureaspect™ is made to drop down over the apex of your window and can then extend over any rectangular shape below using only one or two blinds depending on the shape of your angled window. Additionally, our blinds for apex windows are designed to retract away so neatly that you can barely see them when retracted.
