Each room in a home serves a different purpose and therefore has different requirements, especially when it comes to window treatments. At Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving the Naples area, we know how important it is to find the treatment that will meet each room’s needs while also meeting your aesthetics and budget, which can be especially important in a room that gets a lot of use, like a living room. Read on for some ideas!
The Room’s Requirements
The living room (sometimes also referred to as the family room) is frequently where the family gathers, to spend time together, watch a movie, or play games. It also might where parties gather or where people just want to go for quiet escape. Requirements for the room might vary based on which way the window faces (south or west will get the most direct sunlight), what floor the room is on and whether it faces the street (which might impact how much privacy you need), and if it has a great view (in which case, maintaining some view-through might be important). To meets these needs, you might consider:
- Honeycomb Shades. Honeycomb shades provide insulation at the window, come in a wide array of textures and colors that can match or complement most décor styles, and 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. If your window gets lots of sun (and therefore lots of UV rays), designer screen shades are great 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
- Wood Blinds or Shutters. Wood blinds and shutters bring a touch of elegance and sophistication to a room 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. Plus, these products are durable and long-lasting, and they’re fairly easy to maintain. Great choices include Heritance® Hardwood Shutters and Parkland® Wood Blinds.
- Vertically Oriented Options. Depending on the size or type of window, you might need a vertically oriented treatment. Look to Luminette® Privacy Sheers or Skyline® Gliding Window Panels, which bring a modern look and contemporary lines.
