Window covering help

In my new kitchen I have my sliding glass patio doors. Right next to them, I have a huge window (about the same size as the doors). I am looking for ideas on how to cover them. I donít know how to cover them, still let in plenty of light, but keep some of the heat out.

Please excuse all of the boxes and the pressure tank sitting there. This was taken a few days ago and Iím still moving.

I seriously love my solar shades. Investigate and see if theyíre what you want. I like your light.

I have something similar. I have sheer curtains but some of my neighbours have plantation shutters for both and they look quite nice.

I love the light! I have a ton of windows on the back of my home which is fenced in, so I haven't covered any of them. I just love the light...Sorry I wasn't any help...but I love your doors!

Pleated shades. They come in sheer, semi opaque, and opaque. They are a honeycomb type shade and do keep it cooler/warmer

Window coverings

Thanks for the suggestions. Iím going to look into them. Iím not worried about privacy. The next neighbor is my parents and I canít even see their house from my house, and then thereís 100+ acres between me and the next neighbor, and thatís all wooded area. This door and window face east and gets tons of morning sun. I think these 2 sugggestions will really help keep the sun and heat out.

Check out Luminette Privacy Sheers. I had them in my former home and really liked them.

Your space is great!
