Your Guide To Living Room Window Treatments In Boise, ID04/22/2016Spencer Madsen The living room is where you put your decorating style on display. And gorgeous windows are an opportunity to mount an equally stunning window treatment to highlight their shape and match your furniture. You’ll want to account for your window’s shape since many living rooms have beautiful arched or specialty shaped windows. Another thing to think about is how you want to frame the view outside, how much light comes through them, and how much privacy you want. Your living room window treatments should give you complete control over light and privacy so that your guests feel welcome. Your living room window treatment options in Boise include: Plantation shutters Sliding barn door shutters Shades Living Room Shutters In Boise Unlike draperies, blinds, and shades, living room shutters match your circular, triangular, octagonal, arched windows. They can be even installed on french doors. They’re custom built to your window’s exact dimensions. All the curves, corners, and angles are intact. And your guests will take notice 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 swing the panels open to reach the window. For a formal living room, choose window treatments that are more sophisticated. Plantation shutters feature broad horizontal louvers enclosed in a frame. Whether you choose a traditional white paint for Polywood®, a deep stain for Ovation® wood, or weathered reclaimed wood, the custom window covering will match your living room’s décor. Living room shutters keep you and your guests pleasantly warm throughout the visit. Simply close the shutters properly for temperature control. And when you have Polywood shutters for living room shutters, you’re getting ultimate energy savings. Barn Doors For Living Room Windows As window treatments, sliding barn doors bring out the rich color palette of your living room. Pick an espresso stain or midnight black paint to balance white walls and light colored furniture. If your living room has dark colored walls or eclectic furniture patterns, a barn door with a fruitwood stain or snow white paint is a better option. The barn door panels easily glide on a track mounted above the window to reveal the landscape. Once the panels are on the sides of the window, they become standalone works of art, framing the view beautifully. Shades For Living Room Windows Shades work great if you want your living room window treatments to showcase specific colors or multiple colors. Roman shades are the most popular shades in Boise. They‘re available in patterns and fabrics ranging from classic to modern. And they add charm to even the tallest of windows in your living room. Keep in mind that some shades can be ineffective at blocking light. Check with a window treatment professional as to a particular shade’s room darkening efficiency.
