Every room in the house serves different purposes, and therefore, each room’s window treatments have different requirements. At Blinds & Designs serving Marin County, we can help you determine the needs of each room, such as a living room, and which treatments would work best to serve those needs. Read on for more information and ideas!
Determine the Room’s Requirements
A living room/family room is frequently the main gathering space of a home—a family might hang out there to watch a movie or play games or entertain friends. Depending on how you use the room, you might focus on products for privacy or view-through, UV protection, or great stylistic fashion. If the room faces south or west, you might have lots of direct natural light, so light control and insulation might be your focus.
The cellular design of honeycomb shades makes them energy-efficient: they trap air in their pockets and provide insulation at the window. Plus, they’re great with light and privacy control. You can select from a wide array of textures and colors as well as top-down/bottom-up operation. Duette® Honeycomb Shades are a popular line, and they offer numerous options.
Wood Shutters or Blinds
These products bring a touch of sophistication to the room and might even help increase the home’s value. Wood shutters and blinds are great at privacy and light control, and they offer some view-through even when the slats are tilted. Finally, wood shutters and blinds are durable, long-lasting, and fairly easy to maintain. Hunter Douglas offers lines such as Heritance® Hardwood Shutters or Parkland® Wood Blinds.
Designer Screen Shades
These products are great for windows that get lots of sun because they can block up to 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays. Depending on the weave (openness factor), you can maintain some view-through with designer screen shades.
If your windows are large or if your living room includes a slider, you might need to find treatments with vertical orientation. Consider Luminette® Privacy Sheers or Skyline® Gliding Window Panels, which can bring a modern look and contemporary lines.
