How to Dress Tall Windows

Tall windows can be a tricky project, not to mention a sizable investment, so you want to be sure you get it right the first time. Hmm … if that sounds like a job for professionals, you’re right. We love challenges! Large windows and high ceilings are in our wheelhouse. Whether you have tall windows or want to give that illusion, we have the solution and expertise. 

Many rooms with very tall windows often suffer from too much light. Yes, there is such a thing. It can make occupying them uncomfortably bright and often hot. You need window fashions which filter or block light and heat, but you also need to be able to operate them easily.

You also don’t need tall windows to make them appear so. 

This visual shows this point clearly.
The drapery length and mount position makes a huge difference.
Hint: These 3 windows are all the same size. 

Create an Illusion

If you want to create the illusion of tall windows, then mount your drapery hardware very high or from the ceiling and hide the edges of the windows. No-one knows where the windows really begin or end, giving the illusion of large windows.  Many hotels do this to give the feeling of space and luxury. We can create the high end hotel look in your home. 

High Style

 

These shutters feature tilting vanes which can all be moved together within hand reach.

A pole can help close the top panels. 

 

This room features vertical windows as well as horizontal, so using sheer shadings in both  orientations unify the windows.  Motorization will, of course, make this etherial design functional as well as beautiful.

Two-story windows in a bedroom can make sleeping a challenge. Motorized blackout roller shades transform the space into a secluded sanctuary.

Afternoon naps are back on the menu.

 

 

Arches are tricky for sure, and high ones even more so. Most shades require a flat horizontal surface to mount on to. The design of this window leaves the high eyebrow window open but incorporates a functional shade for light control and privacy. The stationary side panels on either side add style and softness and finish the look. 

 

 

 

Speciality shapes above windows can be covered with non-operable shades, made to match the lower shades. Some shades can also be made in tilt only mode. Ask us for details.
