Many of us love the idea of a home with large, picture windows, sliding glass doors and tons of opportunities to let in light. Open concepts and bright welcoming spaces are the trend in home design, décor and remodeling. But if you favor shades and screens as your type of window treatment, you may be wary of larger windows. With sliding window panels, you have even more options when choosing window treatments for those beautiful large windows. Read on to learn more about the benefits of sliding window panels for homes.
Sliding window panels are large, distinctive and follow a horizontal track. They are available in a variety of colors and textures, so you can select what will fit your space and what will make the statement you are looking for. These window coverings easily coordinate with roller shades and screen shades, so you can mix and match your style preferences. If you find a design you really enjoy, sliding window panels can also be used as a room divider or closet door. For a unique decorative touch, you can mix and match panel fabrics either in different areas in your home or within the same window treatment.
At Hill Country Blinds, we offer two options for this type of window treatment. Hunter Douglas Skyline® Gliding Window Panels feature a clean and modern design for any size window. When the panels are open, they stack tightly. When they are closed, they smoothly display their fabric and texture.
This product has three operating system options. PowerView® gives you the power to wirelessly control your window covering with a remote control or from a mobile device. The wand control option replaces pull cords with a wand that is safely kept out of a child’s reach. Of course, the traditional continuous cord loop is still an option, working like a pulley system.
Graber Panel Accents™ are available in a wide variety of popular, trendy colors. This product can easily be operated with cord control or wand control. For a cohesive look, you can pair your sliding panels with a valance or other top treatment.
While virtually any window treatment can be customized based on the size of your window, the horizontal track that sliding panels follow make them perfect for all window varieties. The availability of fabrics in different opacities allows you to control how much light comes through while minimizing any gaps. Since this product covers the expanse of any window, you also have maximum control over your privacy.
