12 Ways to Create Beautiful Windows That Save You Money
For homes with large expanses of windows, floor to ceiling glass panels, wraparound sliding doors or any other extensive combination of glass windows and doors, help is here! Gliding window panels are a clean, contemporary method of window treatment that allows for complete customization.
If you’re looking for the most modern window treatments, you’ll find it here. Gliding window panels are operated through a motorized system, moving backward and forward on a track. The track can be created at any length up to 32 feet, which is a great feature for extra large rooms. It can also be 14 feet tall, which is a boon for homeowners with oversized sliding glass doors.
The gliding panels can be ordered in hundreds of color options, but they can be further customized for light diffusion. Options range from sheer to opaque. If getting the maximum light is a concern, extra wall space can be dedicated to holding the panels. This way, the gliding window panels can be designed bigger than the window itself. When the shades are fully open, the panels will not block any portion of the window, allowing for 100% of the light to come through.
