Window treatments can do a lot for your home, both inside and out.  When you have the right window treatments, you are going to be able to bring out the best of your large windows, dressing them up from one season to the next. The better your window treatments, the more you are getting out of the windows of your St Augustine FL home overall.  We at American Window Products have seen it all with window treatments and can help you come up with some ideas that you may not have thought of in the past.


Having large windows can be positive as well as a detriment when you are talking about window treatments.  The great thing about large windows is that they are going to give you a big canvas to work with.  You can go outside of the box with the way that you dress them up because you have that added real estate.


Cellular Shades with Filtering

One of the best treatments that you can give to large windows is to go with cellular shades that filter the light.  The idea here is that say you have a kitchen or a dining room with a lot of light that comes through a big window and you want to minimize it, but not eliminate.  A cellular shade with light filtering technology is going to allow you to accomplish just that.  The premise here is that the cellular shade will act as a partial barrier to the light.  You can still fill that kitchen, that dining room, with plenty of natural light, but you are not going to be blinded by it.  These types of cellular shades come in a variety of colors as well so that they can go with any style of a room.


Blackout Shades

The other alternative here is to go with blackout shades.  The prime example of when you may want to consider this is if you had a large window that was opposite to the television in the living room of the home.  The large window, allowing the sun to shine through, would blind you from being able to see the television due to light glare.  Blackout shades let you block the light entirely and can also dress up the window to let it complement the rest of the room quite nicely.


Low-Profile Curtains

You may want to skip the shades entirely and instead go with low-profile curtains.  These curtains would be such that they would act more as decor than as a way to block the light from coming through, but that is the point.  Curtains such as this are genuine compliments to the windows in your St Augustine FL home.  When you work with us to have a new large vinyl window installed, you mine as well show it off rather than hiding it behind a curtain.


Flowers on the Sill

The sill of the window can be utilized to dress up the large window as well.  You can even add these with curtains or low-profile shades.  Use the sill of the window to place flowers on there, nothing too big, but just enough to add color, to let the flowers benefit from the natural light, and so on.  Adding flowers to your window sill is a great add-on that assists in the aesthetic appeal on the inside and out of the home.
