April 22, 2016

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 accent your furniture and accentuate the window’s shape.

You’ll want to consider your window’s shape since many living rooms have beautiful arched or specialty shaped windows. You’ll also want to consider 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 get the feeling that they’re welcome.

Your living room window treatment options in Boise include:

Living Room Shutters In Boise

Living room with dark wood floors and white plantation shutters 

Unlike draperies, blinds, and shades, living room shutters highlight your circular, triangular, octagonal, arched windows. They can be even installed on french doors. They’re custom built to your window’s exact specifications. All the curves, corners, and angles are intact. And your guests will appreciate that you thought about their privacy - and will take notice of your eye for architecture.

For a living room that will be used more for entertainment, the functionality of the window treatment carries as much weight as its beauty. You can move the shutter louvers with a tilt rod to get as much light as you want. And you can open the panels completely to operate the window.

For a formal living room, go with window treatments that are more sophisticated. Plantation shutters are known for their broad horizontal louvers encased 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 decorating style.

Living room shutters keep you and your guests pleasantly warm throughout the visit. Just close the shutters tightly 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 masterpieces, framing the view beautifully.

Shades For Living Room Windows

Shades are a great option if you want your living room window treatments to showcase specific colors or multiple colors. Roman shades are the most popular type of 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 specific shade’s room darkening efficiency.
