Custom window treatments can be intimidating for many consumers. Many are overwhelmed by the choices in treatments. Others worry that custom window treatments may be cost prohibitive. There are even those individuals who feel that window treatments are only appropriate for traditional design styles. The reality is that yes, there are thousands of style, fabric and design options for custom window treatments. Window treatments can be as diverse and creative as the creative mind can imagine and a good designer can design. And although they can be costly, they should be considered as an investment, something that, if done correctly, you will live with and enjoy for many years to come. I came across an article recently that stated that on average, individuals who purchase store bought window treatments will change them out once per year while individuals who purchase custom treatments will keep their treatments for at least seven years. If you do the math, at about $100 per window for store bought treatments, you have paid more for them over seven years than if you had invested the money to purchase custom treatments.
Any option you choose is going to cost a lot of money. Whether it is blinds or shades, curtains or drapes you have to think about robust way to operate it. You can't have the operating mechanism break down every few weeks or months. It needs to take the stress and strain of being operated often. Else, if you have beautiful window treatments for large windows but no way to open or close them.

Blinds and shades like rolling blinds and roman blinds can be used also. Horizontal blinds give a completely different and warm look to the large windows.

For instance, do you want easy-care treatments, or do you mind having to have them dry cleaned once or twice a year?
