Need some input. Time to cover this window! What do you think?
Delmarva Blinds & Shutters

This window has always been naked. Usually I have no problem deciding or figuring out what would look and work the best. However this window is a totally different story!

Is there a privacy or sun issue? It's a beautiful view that I would hesitate to cover unless it's necessary. It looks like you're in the window covering business so what would you tell a client with a window like this?

Maybe I am having such a hard time with this window because its ours. (if that makes any sense) This has been the ONLY window I have ever had this hard of a time with. I love it being open but the sun is intense in the afternoon.

Knowing everything we have to chose from makes it that much harder. Its nice to be able to get others input.

It's always difficult for us designers to design for ourselves! Perhaps plantation shutters that you'll leave open most of the day and then close when the sun is too fierce. Or even 2" blinds? Or a nice grass shade to lower to cut the worst of the sun?

Carolyn thanks so much and it is difficult. There is no rule saying we cant get advice from each other! (at least I didn't think there was)
Shutters are a great choice for almost any window! As my 9 year old would say "shutters are HOT"
