The Guide To Living Room Window Treatments In Sacramento, CA

April 22, 2016

The living room gives you a space where you put your decorating style on display. And elegant windows are your chance to find a stunning window treatment to emphasize their shape and accent your furniture.

You’ll want to take into consideration your window’s shape since many living rooms have specialty shaped or beautiful arched windows. Another thing to consider is how much privacy you desire, how you want the view outside framed, and how much light comes through them. Look for living room window treatments that let you control privacy and light so that your guests feel right at home.

Your options for living room window treatments in Sacramento include:

Living Room Shutters In Sacramento

White plantation living room shutters 

In contrast to draperies, blinds, and shades, living room shutters highlight your arched, circular, triangular, octagonal windows - even your french doors. They’re custom built to the exact measurements of your windows. All the curves, corners, and angles are preserved. And your guests will take notice of your eye for architecture - and appreciate that you thought about their privacy.

If your living room is formal, choose window treatments that are more elegant. Plantation shutters feature wide horizontal louvers enclosed in a frame. Whether you pick a deep stain for Ovation® wood, weathered reclaimed wood, or a traditional white paint for Polywood®, the custom window treatment will match the decorating style of your living room.

If your living room will be used to entertain, the functionality of the window treatment matters as much as its beauty. You can adjust the shutter louvers using a tilt rod to get as much light as you want. And you can swing the panels completely open to access the window.

Living room shutters keep your guests pleasantly warm throughout the evening. All you have to do is close the shutters completely for temperature control. And when you have Polywood shutters on your living room windows, you’re getting ultimate energy savings.

Barn Doors For Living Room Windows

As window treatments, sliding barn doors highlight the rich color palette of your living room. Pick midnight black paint or an espresso stain to balance white walls and light colored furniture. For living rooms with dark colored walls or eclectic furniture patterns, a barn door with a fruitwood stain or snow white paint is a better option.

Enjoy the scenery when you move the barn door panels on a track. Once the panels are on the sides of the window, they frame the view and become standalone pieces of art.

Shades For Living Room Windows

Shades are a great option when you want your living room window treatments to showcase specific colors or multiple colors. Roman shades are the most popular kind of shades in Sacramento. They‘re available in fabrics and patterns ranging from traditional to contemporary. And they add elegance to even the tallest of windows in your living room.

Some shades can be ineffective at blocking out light coming through the window. Check with a window treatment professional as to a particular shade’s room darkening capabilities.
