Finding the Perfect Vertical Window Treatments

Tall windows, sliding glass doors, patio windows, and large windows, can all create tricky situations when it comes to selecting the right window treatments. Aesthetics aside, sometimes, these windows can simply be a hassle to operate, making finding the right lighting solution overwhelming. At Window Accents & Flooring, we’ve outfitting enough homes with window solutions that we know a bit about making the most of any lighting situation, which is why, this month, we’re taking the time to look closer at these tricky windows and how to get the most out of them.

Vertical window treatments can be a great solution to this problem, and not just blinds! Several of our shades also feature vertical mounting features, making them a fantastic option that lets you take control of these windows while enjoying beautiful color and pattern selections. Here are a few of our favorite vertical window treatments we’re loving right now.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades

These gorgeous shades from Hunter Douglas feature signature pleats and an energy-efficient honeycomb-shaped interior. Large windows and sliding glass doors, when left untreated, can be massive avenues for heat energy. Excessive sunlight can cause solar heat gain, which leads to an uncomfortable home that is difficult to cool. Honeycomb shades work to trap air, preventing expensively heated and cooled air from escaping, and making it easier to maintain a consistent temperature inside of your home. Choose from light filtering to room darkening opacities in an array of beautiful fabrics available through the exclusive Alustra® Collection. Colors like Farmhouse Red, Taj, and Indigo Mood provide the perfect balance of contemporary style no matter what your taste in interior decor may be. With the Vertiglide™ system, your Duette® shades mount vertically for smooth operation that glides across your windows.
