Your Guide To Living Room Window Treatments In Fort Myers, FL

April 22, 2016

The living room gives you a space where you put your decorating style on display. And beautiful windows are your chance to find an equally stunning window treatment to accent your furniture and highlight the window’s shape.

You’ll want to consider your window’s shape since many living rooms have specialty shaped or beautiful arched windows. You’ll also want to take into consideration how much privacy you desire, how you want to frame the view outside, and how much light comes through them. Your living room window treatments should let you control light and privacy so that your guests get the feeling that they’re right at home.

Your living room window treatment options in Fort Myers include:

Living Room Shutters In Fort Myers

Living room with dark wood floors and white plantation shutters 

In contrast to shades, draperies, and blinds, living room shutters highlight your circular, triangular, octagonal, arched windows. They can be even installed on french doors. They’re custom built to your window’s dimensions. Each and every angle, curve, and corner is preserved. And your guests will appreciate that you thought about their privacy - and will take note of your eye for architecture.

If your living room will be used to entertain, how easy it is to operate the window treatment matters as much as its appearance. You can use a tilt rod to adjust plantation shutters for as much light as you want. And you can swing the panels completely open to reach the window.

If your living room is formal, consider window treatments that are more sophisticated. Plantation shutters are known for their broad horizontal louvers bound in a frame. Whether you pick weathered reclaimed wood, a traditional white paint for Polywood®, or a deep stain for Ovation® wood, the resulting window covering matches your living room’s decorating style.

Living room shutters help keep you and your guests comfortably warm all through the evening. All you have to do is close the shutters properly 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 play off of the rich color palette of your living room. Select midnight black paint or an espresso stain to contrast light colored furniture and white walls. For living rooms with eclectic furniture or dark colored walls, a barn door with snow white paint or a fruitwood stain is a better option.

Enjoy the landscape when you move the barn door panels on a track. With the panels on the sides of the window, they frame the view and become standalone masterpieces.

Shades For Living Room Windows

Shades are a good choice when you‘re looking for living room window treatments to feature multiple colors or specific colors. Roman shades, the most popular shades in Fort Myers, have fabrics and patterns that include a range from classic to modern. And they add charm to even the tallest of living room windows.

Some shades may not be effective at blocking light. Check with a window treatment professional about the room darkening efficiency of a certain shade.
