April 22, 2016

The living room gives you a space where you put your decorating style on display. And beautiful windows are an opportunity to mount an equally stunning window treatment to accent your furniture and emphasize the window’s shape.

You’ll want to take into consideration your window’s shape since many living rooms have beautiful arched or specialty shaped windows. Another thing to think about is how much light comes through them, how much privacy you want, and how you want the view outside framed. Look for living room window treatments that give you complete control over light and privacy so that your guests feel right at home.

Your options for living room window treatments in Clearwater include:

Living Room Shutters In Clearwater

Living room with dark wood floors and white plantation shutters 

Unlike draperies, blinds, and shades, living room shutters accentuate your circular, triangular, octagonal, arched windows. They can be even installed on french doors. They’re custom built to the exact dimensions of your windows. Every corner, angle, and curve is preserved. And your guests will take note of your eye for architecture - and appreciate your concern for their privacy.

For a living room that will be used more for entertainment, how functional a window treatment is carries as much weight as its beauty. You can adjust the shutter louvers using a tilt rod to get as much light as you want. And you can open the panels completely to reach the window.

For a formal living room, consider window treatments that are more sophisticated. Plantation shutters are known for their wide horizontal louvers encased in a frame. Whether you select a traditional white paint for Polywood®, a deep stain for Ovation® wood, or weathered reclaimed wood, the resulting custom window treatment matches the decorating style of your living room.

Living room shutters keep your guests comfortably warm all through the visit. Just close the shutters properly for temperature control. And with Polywood shutters on your living room windows, you’re getting ultimate energy savings.

Barn Doors For Living Room Windows

Sliding barn doors as window treatments play off of the living room’s rich color palette. Select an espresso stain or midnight black paint to balance light colored furniture and white walls. If your living room has eclectic furniture or dark colored walls, a barn door with snow white paint or a fruitwood stain might work best.

Enjoy the scenery when you glide the barn door panels on a track. With the panels on the sides of the window, they become standalone pieces of art, framing the view beautifully.

Shades For Living Room Windows

Shades are a great option when you want your living room window treatments to feature specific colors or multiple colors. Roman shades are the most popular kind of shades in Clearwater. They come in fabrics and patterns ranging from contemporary to classic. And they bring elegance to even the tallest of living room windows.

However, some shades can be ineffective at blocking out light coming through the window. You’ll need to check with a window treatment professional about the room darkening efficiency of a certain shade.
