Atlanta Coastal Window Treatment Design Recommendations

September 26, 2017

Owning a home in a coastal climate like Atlanta means that how you think about your home decor can vary from homes in other parts of Georgia. Not only do coastal homes in our area have a particular style, but homes here can also have a few aspects that other homes might not have – even when it comes to window coverings in Atlanta homes.

Let’s talk about what you can do with your window treatments to make your coastal home look fantastic.

Protect Your Views And Your Privacy

Homes near the Atlanta coast can have some of the prettiest views of any Georgia home, and while you may like to have your windows clear all day long, you should also think about your privacy. Sheer blinds or drapes might be popular in some homes, but they’ll also let anyone walking outside see inside your home.

Rather, choose a window treatment with more versatility like plantation shutters, which offer a lot of flexibility on maintaining your view and your privacy. The adjustable louvers allow for a wide range of visibility, and the actual shutters can swing fully open or shut, so you can adjust your privacy levels at different times of the day or based simply on your style.


Don’t Let Salty Air Affect Your Window Treatments

Owning a home near the Georgia coast means you’re all too familiar with saltwater and the ocean air. The ocean air can cause rust on your vehicle, corrosion on metal patio furniture, and damage on your window treatments and windows.

For long-lasting functionality and looks, you want a window treatment that won’t hold moisture. Think faux wood, whether that means faux wood blinds or Polywood plantation shutters. Both can shrug off moisture, keeping your window free from mold, corrosion, and musty scents.

Keep An Open Mind, Keep An Open Space

The coastal doesn’t always have to be bad news, though. One of the best experiences of being a Atlanta homeowner is opening up the windows to let the coastal breeze sweep through your home. To make it even better, you need a window treatment that won’t swing or blow wildly in the breeze. Stay away from sheer drapes or curtains that dangle from a rod, and depending on how breezy your neighborhood gets, blinds might be something to skip as well. Rather, look for a more secure window treatment, such as shutters.

It’s also a good idea to think about how your decor could change over the next few years. Atlanta home design trends can change fairly often, and installing a stylistically versatile window treatment can help you keep up with trends. Some window treatments that will stand the test of time better than others include:

  • Solid white interior shutters

  • Neutral tone honeycomb shades

  • Faux wood blinds in a natural wood grain
