Clearwater Living Room Window Treatments

Living room window treatments

Top Considerations: Style, energy efficiency, custom shapes, durability

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, barn doors shutters, shades

Living rooms usually have the most sizable windows in your home, and it’s the place in which you’ll entertain friends and family. That makes the living room the best place to go all out with window treatments that display your fashion sense and give you complete control of the room’s comfort. A few of the most ideal window treatments for rooms that are frequently used are plantation shutters and sliding barn doors.

Plantation shutters have a ornate style and are exceptionally durable while giving the highest level of control over temperature and light levels, matching all the living room criteria. On the same note, barn door shutters can grant a classic, understated quality to your living room, while giving you easy control of the light that enters your space.

Top Considerations: Light control, style

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, reclaimed wood shutters, barn doors shutters, shades, blinds

Your house’s dining room may be a formal room you use only occasionally, or as your daily family meal place. Either way, you want a window covering that can give you light control and complement your home design and furniture to make your dining room a relaxing space.

Barn door shutters can add a timeless, almost romantic flavor to any dining room - all while giving you fantastic control of the amount of light and privacy you want. Plantation shutters have a traditional style but are also flexible enough to complement more modern décor. Shades, though they don’t offer as extensive control over temperature, still give you some light control to manage the mood of your dining room, as well as being available in a large variety of fashions and colors to accentuate any décor.

Top Considerations: Style, ease of cleaning, resistance to humidity and water

Window Treatment Recommendations: Polywood plantation shutters, faux wood blinds

Your kitchen is a busy place, from cooking meals to hosting guests and more. Due to the many duties of your kitchen, you’ll benefit most from a window treatment that’s both versatile and strong enough to stand up to whatever is thrown at it (sometimes literally).

Polywood plantation shutters fulfill these needs and then some. Not only do the neutral tones match just about any style choice, but they’re also highly resistant to moisture and simple to clean as well. Faux wood blinds, while somewhat less durable and upscale than shutters, do offer the humidity resistance necessary for any kitchen window treatment

Clearwater Bedroom Window Treatments

Bedroom Window Treatments

Top Considerations: Privacy, style, light control, energy efficiency

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, blinds, shades

The number one priority for your bedroom should be light and comfort control in order to make it easy to sleep. No window treatment option can match the level of control you have with plantation shutters, not to mention shutters’ unrivaled ability to give complete privacy and their stellar looks that complement any décor.

Pull-down shades are also a common bedroom choice, giving you that necessary privacy and a warm look – though they tend to mute light rather than completely block it like shutters. Shades can also be purchased in a wide array of styles and colors, making it easy to select one that fits your bedroom’s color palette.

The family room is your place to relax and spend family time together. It’s also one of the rooms your guests will likely see most often, so style and light control should be your top considerations.

Plantation shutters add style to your family room, and give you great temperature control and insulation to keep your room comfortable. Stylish sliding barn door shutters can become a distinct cornerstone to your family room if you’d like to impress your guests.

Blinds and shades are smart choices due to being available in a vast selection of colors and styles, making it easy to match with your room - though they lack the control over temperature and light that shutters give you.

Clearwater Basement Window Treatments

Basement window treatments

Top Considerations: Light control, energy efficiency, handling humidity

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, blinds

Each basement is unique. They vary in structure, size, how far underground they are, and so forth. Since they vary so much, the best window covering for each basement will differ as well.

In general, you need window treatments that will fit the unique shape and size of your basement windows, while offering to let in a good amount of outside light. Polywood plantation shutters have both of these qualities, while also handling humidity that can be a problem in some basements.

For a different option, blinds are also a smart choice for basements in Clearwater. Both aluminum and faux wood blinds offer resistance to humidity, while also fitting the most typical basement window sizes and easily coordinating with your existing decor.

Top Considerations: Fashion, light control, energy efficiency, resilience

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, shades

Having the best window coverings in your home office can help keep you productive and focused no matter the time of day or the conditions outside. Plantation shutters offer excellent control of temperature, light, and sound, ensuring that you can get work done in a comfortable environment.

If sound reduction and temperature control aren’t a concern, shades are a more budget-friendly option that can help fill your room with soft light, making it more calm and easier to focus on your work rather than having no window treatment.

Clearwater Sunroom Window Treatments

Sunroom window treatments

Top Considerations: Fashion, light control, energy efficiency, durability

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, window film, shades

Sunrooms receive a large amount of light and are an ideal place to lounge or host guests - as long as you can control the amount of light and heat that come in. Plantation shutters lend a wonderful aesthetic against all the glass and are also effective at keeping your room at an ideal temperature with their easy louver adjustability.

Combining window film with another window treatment can increase your room’s protection from heat and harmful UV rays – meaning you won’t have to fret about the possibility of your carpet, furniture, or family photos or artwork being damaged by light exposure. Shades can add a softer aesthetic that you can customize to your home, but be aware that their UV protection won’t be as effective as other options.

Clearwater Laundry Room Window Treatments

Laundry room window treatments

Top Considerations: Budget, light control, energy efficiency, humidity resistance

Window Treatment Recommendations: Blinds, shades

Whether we want to admit it or not, we spend numerous hours in the laundry room every year. To take some of the stress out of laundry, decorate your laundry room with window treatments that will keep the room comfortable, but don’t let it slip your mind that laundry rooms can generate humidity and you may need to protect drying clothes from harsh light.

Blinds are a fantastic choice for Clearwater laundry rooms due to their lower price and easy adjustability, making light control a snap. Faux wood blinds tend to be a better choice than real wood since they are moisture-resistant. Shades are also a consideration, giving a soft, muted style to your laundry room. Keep in mind though that shades usually aren’t very moisture resistant, if you typically use the room for steaming or ironing clothes.

Don’t fret the laundry room anymore!
