The Guide To Window Treatments For Your Living Room In Tampa, FL

Eric Ramsey

The living room is where you display your decorating skills. And elegant windows are an opportunity to install an equally stunning window treatment to emphasize their shape and accent your furniture.

You’ll want to account for the shape of your windows since many living rooms have beautiful arched or specialty shaped windows. Another thing to think about is how you want the view outside framed, how much light comes through them, and how much privacy you want. 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 Tampa include:

Living Room Shutters In Tampa

Unlike draperies, blinds, and shades, living room shutters highlight your octagonal, arched, circular, triangular windows - even your french doors. They’re custom made to your window’s exact specifications. All the angles, curves, and corners are preserved. And your guests will appreciate your concern for their privacy - and will take note of your eye for architecture.

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

If your living room will be used to entertain, how easy it is to operate the window treatment has as much weight as its beauty. You can move the shutter louvers with a tilt rod to get as much light as you want. And you can swing the panels completely open to reach the window.

Living room shutters help keep your guests comfortably warm throughout the evening. All you have to do is close the shutters completely 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

Shades For Living Room Windows

Shades are a great option when you want your living room window coverings to showcase specific colors or multiple colors. Roman shades are the most popular kind of shades in Tampa. They come in fabrics and patterns that include a range from classic to modern. And they add appeal to even the highest of living room windows.

But some shades can be ineffective at blocking out light. You’ll need to check with a window covering expert as to the room darkening capabilities of a certain shade.
