Full size windows run floor to ceiling and can be a dramatic visual feature in any room. These also allow in plenty of natural light to brighten up your space and improve the available lighting. As a result, choosing the right blinds for these windows is an important factor, not just for style and design, but also for practicality. So what are the options?

What are the different options when choosing blinds for full size windows?

There are a number of different blind options available for any full size windows, in any setting. These include:

  • Roller blinds
  • Panel blinds
  • Vertical blinds
  • Venetian blinds

Choosing roller blinds for full size windows

While roller blinds are one of the most popular blind options for standard windows, they were not as popular for full size windows, until recently. This is because many roller blinds are now being incorporated into a smart home set up, with the blinds themselves being controlled as a smart device. This makes for an exceptional feature for any space and offers easy lighting control for any space.

Choosing vertical blinds for full size windows

Vertical blinds are one of the most economical options for full size windows and these can allow a full degree of lighting control. Vertical blinds can be angled for maximising light, or for maximising privacy, while also being full closing with a fairly translucent result. When you opt for a rigid PVC vertical blind option, there will be no need for the weights or chains along the bottom of the blinds, making these safer for children and pets.

Another factor to consider about vertical blinds is that these can also be motorised or operated with a control wand.

Choosing panel blinds for full size windows

Panel blinds use a top and bottom headrail and slide open, and are similar to a Japanese shoji screen. While these are not as popular as the other blind options for full size windows, they can be a practical option for covering the space floor to ceiling.

Choosing Venetian blinds for full size windows

Venetian blinds can be a good option for full size windows although these are often best suited to narrower ceiling to floor windows. If your windows are wider you can split the blind but to do this you will be better off with a high quality aluminium Venetian blind.

Factors to consider when choosing blinds for full size windows

If you need blinds for your full size windows here are a number of important factors to consider. These include:

  • The colour of the blinds- the colour of the blinds doesn’t just impact on the interior design of your space, as this can also have a huge impact on the amount of light that shines through the blind. Generally speaking, lighter blind colours will not absorb as much light as those that are darker or richer in tone.
  • The style of the blinds- different blinds can complement traditional or contemporary spaces depending on the style and design of the blind itself.
