The Guide To Living Room Window Treatments In St. George, UT

April 22, 2016

The living room gives you a space where you put your decorating skills to the test. And gorgeous windows are an opportunity to mount a stunning window treatment to emphasize their shape and accent your furniture.

You’ll want to consider the shape of your windows 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 feel they’re right at home.

Your options for living room window treatments in St. George include:

Living Room Shutters In St. George

White plantation shutters in living room with dark wood floors 

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

If your living room will be used to entertain, the functionality of the window treatment has as much weight as how stunning it looks. You can move the shutter louvers with a tilt rod to get more or less light. And you can swing the panels open to access the window.

For a formal living room, look for window treatments that are more elegant and sophisticated. Plantation shutters are easily recognizable by their wide horizontal louvers bound in a frame. Whether you choose a traditional white paint for Polywood®, a deep stain for Ovation® wood, or weathered reclaimed wood, the resulting custom window treatment matches your living room’s décor.

Living room shutters keep your guests comfortably warm throughout the evening. Just close the shutters tightly for temperature control. And with Polywood shutters on your living room windows, you’re also taking advantage of the resulting 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 light colored furniture and white walls. For living rooms with dark colored walls or eclectic furniture patterns, a barn door with snow white paint or a fruitwood stain is a better option.

The barn door panels easily glide on a track mounted above the window to reveal the landscape outside the window. With the panels on the sides of the window, they frame the view and become standalone works of art.

Shades For Living Room Windows

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

However, some shades can be ineffective at blocking out light. Consult with a window treatment professional about the room darkening capabilities of a certain shade.
