Your Guide To Living Room Window Treatments In Atlanta, GA

April 22, 2016

The living room is where you put your decorating skills to the test. And beautiful windows are your chance to find an equally stunning window treatment to match your furniture and highlight the window’s shape.

You’ll want to take into consideration the shape of your windows since many living rooms have specialty shaped or beautiful arched 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 desire. Look for living room window treatments that let you control light and privacy so that your guests get the feeling that they’re welcome.

Your options for living room window treatments in Atlanta include:

Living Room Shutters In Atlanta

Living room with dark wood floors and white plantation shutters 

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

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

If your living room will be used to entertain, how functional a window treatment is carries as much weight as how beautiful it looks. You can use a tilt rod to adjust plantation shutters for more or less light. And you can open the panels completely to reach the window.

Living room shutters keep you and your guests pleasantly warm all through the visit. All you have to do is close the shutters tightly for temperature control. And when you have Polywood shutters for living room shutters, you’re also taking advantage of the resulting energy savings.

Barn Doors For Living Room Windows

Sliding barn doors as window treatments highlight the living room’s rich color palette. Pick midnight black paint or an espresso stain to contrast white walls and light colored furniture. For living rooms with eclectic furniture or dark colored walls, a barn door with snow white paint or a fruitwood stain is a better option.

The barn door panels easily glide on a track mounted above the window to unveil the landscape outside the window. Once the panels are on both sides of the window, they become standalone pieces of art, framing the view beautifully.

Shades For Living Room Windows

Shades are a great option if you want your living room window treatments to highlight multiple colors or specific colors. Roman shades, the most popular shades in Atlanta, have patterns and fabrics ranging from contemporary to classic. And they add charm to even the tallest of windows in your living room.

But some shades can be ineffective at blocking out light. Consult with a window treatment expert about the room darkening capabilities of a specific shade.
