Stylish Shades for Large Windows

Finding shades for large windows can be challenging on several fronts. First, window treatments large enough to cover extra broad or tall windows can be weighty, which can cause difficulties with maneuverability. Secondly, large window treatments occupy a visually prominent place in the home, and so have a great deal of influence (either good or bad) over the style and mood of a room. And lastly, as shades for large windows deal with large amounts of direct light, they need to be able to stand up to the harmful aspects of sunlight that can damage or warp some materials over time. Hunter Douglas produces several lines of window treatments that are especially suited for large windows because they are durable, easy to use despite a considerable size or weight, and they come in contemporary styles with a range of modern design options. So here are our picks for the best shades for large windows from Hunter Douglas.
