Need help with drapes for family room
lenachanFebruary 16, 2013
I have high windows that go from the 1st floor up to 2nd. During the day the sun shines in and it gets really hot.

Remote controlled blinds or shades, especially on the uppers. Or, wood slat blinds that you can leave tilted up to allow light but block direct sun.

Possibly window tint or UV film on all.

I have very similar windows in my home. I explored many options with many different designers and found grass cloth shades be the most simple, clean, and fresh look. They come in many different colors and look awesome! And they don't clutter up windows or collect a lot of dust like drapes or blinds. If you want, I can include a pic. Good luck!

I agree with the motorized however I would recommend Cellular shades with a top down bottom up option this way you can control the light and privacy in the room .

Here you go. We chose a neutral color and also chose a style that allows the light to come through and lets us have an outside view while still keeping the heat out. Because of this view, we hardly ever raise or lower them. Mostly, I just love how clean and neat they look while still being decorative. Hope this helps.
