Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, barn doors shutters, shades
Living rooms usually contain the largest windows in your house, and it’s the space where you’ll entertain visitors. That makes the living room the best place to go all out with window treatments that show your fashion sense and give you complete control of the room’s comfort. Two of the best window coverings for heavily used rooms are barn door shutters and plantation shutters.
Plantation shutters carry a timeless style and are exceptionally hardy while offering the highest level of control over temperature and light levels, meeting all the living room needs. On the same note, sliding barn doors can add a classic, understated character to your living room, while giving you fantastic control over the light in the room.

Your dining room may be a formal room you use only sparingly, or as your daily family meal place. Either way, you want a window treatment that can let you control the mood and add to your home design and furniture to make your dining room a relaxing space.
Barn door shutters offer a timeless, almost romantic flavor to any dining room - while simultaneously giving you great control of the amount of light and privacy you desire. Plantation shutters have a similar traditional look but are also adaptable enough to accompany more contemporary décor. Shades, though they offer less control over temperature, still allow for some light control to manage the mood in your dining room, as well as being available in a large selection of colors and styles to pair with any décor.

Style, ease of cleaning, resistance to humidity and water
Window Treatment Recommendations:
Polywood plantation shutters, faux wood blinds
The kitchen is a room full of activity, from cooking meals to showing off to guests and more. Since there are so many purposes of the kitchen, you’ll benefit most from a window treatment that’s both versatile and strong enough to stand up to whatever is thrown at it (sometimes literally).
Polywood plantation shutters satisfy these prerequisites perfectly. Not only do shutters’ neutral tones pair with almost any interior fashion choice, but they’re also very resistant to moisture and easy to clean to boot. Faux wood blinds, while somewhat less durable and upscale than shutters, do offer the humidity resistance that you need for any kitchen window treatment

Orlando Bedroom Window Treatments
Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, blinds, shades
The first priority for any bedroom should be the level of control you have over light and heat to make it easy to rest. No window treatment option can match the level of control you have with plantation shutters, not to mention their unparalleled ability to give complete privacy and their classic looks that pair seamlessly with any décor.
Pull-down shades are also a common choice for bedrooms, giving you that all-important privacy and a homey look – although they tend to diminish light instead of block it out completely like shutters. Shades also come in a wide array of styles and colors, making it easy to find one that fits your bedroom’s color palette.

Orlando Family Room Window Treatments
Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, sliding barn door shutters, blinds, shades
The family room is your space to relax and spend time together with your family. It’s also a room your guests will probably see more often than others, so your top considerations should be style and light control.
Plantation shutters add style to your family room, and boast great temperature control and insulation to keep your room comfortable. Chic sliding barn door shutters can be a unique centerpiece to your family room if your goal is to impress your guests.
Blinds and shades are great choices since they’re available in a wide variety of colors and styles, making it simple to match with your established decor - though they don’t allow for the same degree of light or temperature control that shutters do.

All basements are different. They vary in structure, size, how deep they are, and more. Since they vary so much, the best window covering for each basement can be a case by case scenario.
In general, you should look for window treatments that will fit your unique basement window shape and size, while offering to let in the maximum amount of light. Polywood plantation shutters accomplish both of these superbly, in addition to handling humidity that may be a problem in some basements.
As an alternative, blinds are also a common choice for basements in Orlando. Both aluminum and faux wood blinds feature moisture resistant qualities, in addition to fitting the most frequently-seen basement window sizes and easily matching your existing decor.

Having the best window coverings in your home office can help you stay productive and focused no matter what hour of the day it is or the outside weather. Plantation shutters offer the best control of sound, light, and temperature, ensuring that you’re able to get work done in a comfortable environment.
If noise dampening and insulation aren’t a priority for you, shades are a more budget-friendly choice that can help fill your room with subdued light, making it more relaxing and easier to keep your attention on your work rather than having no window covering.

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, window film, shades
Sunrooms are full of light and are the perfect place to relax or host guests - as long as you can control the level of light and heat that enter the room. Plantation shutters look stunning against all the glass and are also effective at keeping your room at an ideal temperature with a simple adjustment of the louvers.
Integrating window film with another window treatment can increase your room’s protection from heat and harmful ultraviolet rays – so you won’t have to worry about fading carpet, furniture or heirloom photos or artwork. Shades offer a more subtle look that you can customize to your house, but remember that their UV protection won’t be as effective as other options.

Like it or not, we spend several hours in the laundry room every year. To de-stress some of those chores, cozy up your laundry room with window coverings that will keep you comfortable, but don’t neglect the fact that laundry rooms can accumulate moisture and you may need to keep drying clothes from harsh light.
Blinds are a common choice for Orlando laundry rooms since they’re less expensive and easy to adjust, making light control a breeze. Faux wood blinds are a better choice than real wood because they are moisture-resistant. Shades are also a consideration, adding a soft, mellow style to your laundry room. Remember though that shades usually aren’t very moisture resistant, in case your laundry room sees a good amount of steam.
Don’t fret the laundry room anymore!
