Treatments for Living Room Windows

Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades

Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades

Any window in the house can be treated, but because each room is used differently, the same treatment might not work everywhere. At Windo VanGo serving the greater Baltimore area, we can help you determine which treatments might be best for your needs in different rooms, including common areas like a living room. Read on to learn more!

Determine the Room’s Needs

Living rooms (or family rooms) are often gathering spaces in the home, where a family might hang out after dinner, watch a movie, or play games. It also might be the spot where you host parties or intimate get-togethers with friends. Depending on what happens in the room, you might need UV protection, products for privacy or view-through, or great stylistic fashion. If the room faces south or west, light control could be very important, as might some form of insulation at the window.

Wood Blinds or Shutters

Wood blinds and shutters bring a touch of elegance and sophistication to a space and might even help increase the value of the home. They’re great at privacy and light control, and they offer some view-through even when the slats are tilted. Depending on the finish you choose, these products can add warmth to the space, making it feel homey and inviting. Plus, these products are durable and long-lasting, and they’re fairly easy to maintain. Look to lines such as Heritance® Hardwood Shutters or Parkland® Wood Blinds.

Honeycomb Shades

Designed to be energy-efficient by trapping air in their pockets, honeycomb shades provide insulation at the window while offering light and privacy control. They are available in a wide array of textures and colors that can match or complement most décor styles. And they can be designed with top-down/bottom-up operation, which allows you the best of all worlds by letting you open the product the regular bottom-up way, a light-through-the-top top-down way, or both. Duette® Honeycomb Shades are a popular line, and they offer numerous options.

Designer Screen Shades

Designer screen shades are great for windows that get lots of sun because they can block up to 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays from damaging your flooring, artwork, and furnishings. Depending on the openness factor (the weave), you can get some view-through with screen shades, offering you an open feel to the room.

Drapery or Side Panels

No matter the base window fashion you choose, you can add drapery or side panels to add depth and dimension to the room, bring in additional texture or color, or just make the window truly unique. Functionally, they can help block light gaps on the sides of the treatment, and they’ll make the overall aesthetic of the room appear more finished.

Vertically Oriented Options

If the window openings are large or if your living room includes a sliding glass door, you might need vertically oriented treatments. Luminette® Privacy Sheers or Skyline® Gliding Window Panels might be just the trick for the space, bringing a modern look and contemporary lines.
