Should this very large and non opening window on the first floor, be framed or should shutters or blades be made. Maybe timber batons positioned horizontally.
Any advise is helpful
What are the reasons behind wanting screening on these windows, should at least one panel be opening, ie louvers. for ventilation. Our 80's house had a lot of non opening windows, I'am guessing this was done to save on cost, since changing the critical ones to opening the house is so much better.
This window faces south. I also would like to block out views of both of my neighbours garages, but the central view is of lovely palm trees.
Maybe you could tint the window so no-one can see in during the day as a cheaper alternative, so you could drawer back the sheers.
I think interior bi-fold louvred shutters are your best choice here, open up to have your slice of lovely view while screening the despised garages without the fussiness of the curtains. As Dr Retro rightly states anything on the outside is going to be a major grot magnet and a mission to clean....unless you love ladders, spiders and who knows what else!!
Thanks for your ideas. I’m going to look into designs for a laser screen. Easy to maintain and looks contemporary. Regards
