The Guide To Living Room Window Treatments In Orlando, FL04/22/2016Todd Hansen The living room gives you a space where you show off your decorating skills. And elegant windows are an opportunity to find an equally stunning window treatment to accent your furniture and emphasize the window’s shape. You’ll want to account for your window’s shape since many living rooms have beautiful arched or specialty shaped windows. You’ll also want to consider how much light comes through them, how much privacy you want, and how you want to frame the view outside. Look for living room window treatments that give you control over light and privacy so that your guests get the feeling that they’re right at home. Your options for living room window treatments in Orlando include: Plantation shutters Sliding barn door shutters Shades Living Room Shutters In Orlando In contrast to shades, draperies, and blinds, living room shutters match your arched, circular, triangular, octagonal windows - even your french doors. They’re custom made to the specifications of your windows. Each angle, curve, and corner is preserved. And your guests will appreciate your concern for their privacy - and will take notice of your eye for architecture. 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 move the shutter louvers with a tilt rod to get more or less light. And you can open the panels completely to access the window. If your living room is formal, go with window treatments that are more elegant and sophisticated. Plantation shutters are easily recognizable by their broad horizontal louvers encased in a frame. Whether you pick a traditional white paint for Polywood®, a deep stain for Ovation® wood, or weathered reclaimed wood, the resulting custom window treatment matches your living room’s décor. Living room shutters keep your guests pleasantly warm all through the visit. Simply close the shutters properly 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 rich color palette of your living room. Select midnight black paint or an espresso stain to balance white walls and light colored furniture. For living rooms with dark colored walls or eclectic furniture patterns, a barn door with snow white paint or a fruitwood stain is a better option. The barn door panels easily move on a track mounted above the window to reveal the landscape outside the window. With the panels on the sides of the living room window, they frame the view and become standalone pieces of art. Shades For Living Room Windows Shades are a good choice when you want your living room window treatments to highlight specific colors or multiple colors. Roman shades, the most popular shades in Orlando, have fabrics and patterns that include a range from traditional to modern. And they bring charm to even the highest of windows in your living room. However, some shades may not be effective at blocking light coming through the window. Check with a window treatment expert as to a certain shade’s room darkening capabilities.
