Covering plate glass windows

Posted by caseyrose (My Page) on

We have a weekend house in the woods. It has a greatroom with a spectacular view of a waterfall. The wall facing the view has plate glass windows and a sliding glass door. I would like to be able to cover the windows at night to make the room, which has a cathedral ceiling, feel cosier, but I don't want them covered at all during the day. So I am thinking blinds. Do they make blinds for huge windows? What about sliding glass doors?

RE: Covering plate glass windows

You can get custom-size window coverings of any size, I believe--including blinds. Are you talking vertical or horizontal blinds? You'll want to think how they'll be stacked when fully open during the day.

You can get shades operated by a remote control, and they're less trouble than blinds in the long run.
