Sacramento Coastal Window Treatment Recommendations

September 26, 2017

Owning a home in a coastal region like Sacramento means that how you plan your home design can vary from homes in other cities in California. Coastal homes here have both a distinct style, as well as a few considerations that other homes lack – even when talking about window coverings in Sacramento households.

Let’s talk about what you’re able to do with your window coverings to make a coastal home look fantastic.

Protect Your Views And Your Privacy

Homes near the Sacramento coast have some of the prettiest views of any California home, and even if you may like to have your windows clear 24 hours a day, you should also think about your privacy. Thin blinds or drapes may be all the rage in some homes, but they’ll also give outsiders a clear view of your home.

Rather, try a more versatile window decor like plantation shutters, which offer a good amount of flexibility on both your privacy as well as your views. The movable louvers give you a wide range of visibility, and the actual shutters can swing fully open or shut, so you can adjust at different times of the day or just based on your style.


Don’t Let Salty Air Damage Your Window Treatments

Living on the California coast means you’re no stranger to the salty air from the ocean. The ocean air can contribute to rust on your vehicle, corrosion on metal patio furniture, and damage on your window treatments and windows.

Faux Wood shutters in Sacramento coastal home
For form and function to last you years, you need a window treatment that doesn’t retain moisture. Think faux wood, whether that means faux wood blinds or Polywood plantation shutters. Both can shrug off moisture, keeping your window free from mildew, corrosion, and smells.

Keep Your Space Open, Keep Your Fashion Options Open

The ocean does have upsides, though. One of the best feelings in Sacramento homes is swinging your windows open to let that fresh open air come inside. To make it even better, you want a window treatment that doesn’t swing or flap wildly in the breeze. Stay away from light drapes or curtains that dangle from a rod, and depending on how much wind your area gets, blinds may even be a bad idea. Rather, look for a window treatment that’s more secure, such as shutters.

It’s also a good idea to think about how your decor might change over time. Sacramento home fashion trends can change fairly often, and buying a stylistically versatile window covering can help you adapt to new trends. Some window treatments that will adapt with the times better than others include:

  • Solid white interior shutters

  • Neutral tone roller shades

  • Faux wood blinds in a natural wood grain
