The Guide To Living Room Window Treatments In Orlando, FL

April 22, 2016

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 emphasize their shape and accent your furniture.

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 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 feel right at home.

Your options for living room window treatments in Orlando include:

Living Room Shutters In Orlando

White plantation living room shutters 

In contrast to shades, draperies, and blinds, living room shutters match your triangular, octagonal, arched, circular windows. They can be even mounted on french doors. They’re custom made to the dimensions of your windows. Each and every 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.

For a formal living room, go with window treatments that are more elegant. Plantation shutters feature wide 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 covering will match your living room’s décor.

For a living room that will be used more for entertainment, the functionality of the window treatment matters as much as its beauty. You can use a tilt rod to adjust plantation shutters for more or less light. And you can open the panels all the way to reach the window.

Living room shutters keep your guests pleasantly warm all through the visit. Just 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 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
