Window Covering that won't Block View?

I just moved into a new home with my wife and we have a faced a problem. We have a beautiful view that we don't want to block, but our windows need sort of covering. So blinds and curtains won't work. Does anyone have any ideas or experiences with this they can share about window coverings?

Window Tint is your Solution

In regards to your question, one solution is window tinting. I am an interior designer and I love the idea of window tinting. It has many benefits while still letting you enjoy your view. I have used Panorama Window Film from Bekaert and had great results. This is one solution to your dilema. Good luck "CapableConstruter"!

Tinting is a good idea. Also there are amultitude of sheer material cutains and shades you can choose from. Otherwise you have a choice of view or no view...

Using sheers would be a good solution, in my opinion. Hunter Douglas has products you might want to consider: Silhouette or Luminette or even Duette Honeycomb Shades.

Sun screen is another possibility.
