Tampa Living Room Window Treatments

Living room window treatments

Top Considerations: Style, energy efficiency, custom shapes, durability

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, barn doors shutters, shades

Living rooms often have the biggest windows in the home, and it’s the space that you’ll host visitors. That makes the living room a great place to choose window treatments that display your fashion sense and offer you complete control of the room’s comfort. Some of the best window coverings for heavily trafficked rooms are plantation shutters and sliding barn doors.

Plantation shutters feature a classic style and are incredibly resilient to wear while allowing you the highest level of control over light and temperature, meeting all the living room requirements. Similarly, sliding barn doors can add a classic, subdued character to your living room, while giving you easy control of the light in your space.

Tampa Dining Room Window Treatments

Dining room window treatments

Top Considerations: Light control, style

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, reclaimed wood shutters, barn doors shutters, shades, blinds

Your home’s dining room may be a formal room you use only for special occasions, or as your everyday family meal place. Regardless, you want a window covering that can let you control the mood and complement your home design and furniture to make your dining room a relaxing area.

Barn door shutters offer a nostalgic, almost romantic sense to your dining room - in addition to giving you great control over the degree of light and privacy you need. Plantation shutters have a traditional aesthetic but are also versatile enough to accompany more modern décor. Shades, though they don’t offer as extensive control over temperature, still allow for some light control to manage the mood in your dining room, as well as being available in a huge selection of colors and styles to accentuate any décor.

Kitchen Window Treatments

Top Considerations: Style, ease of cleaning, resistance to humidity and water

Window Treatment Recommendations: Polywood plantation shutters, faux wood blinds

The kitchen is a room full of activity, from preparing meals to showing off to guests and beyond. Due to the many purposes of your kitchen, you’ll benefit most from a window treatment that’s both versatile and resilient enough to stand up to whatever messes might be made.

Polywood plantation shutters fulfill these criteria and then some. Not only do the neutral tones pair with just about any home design choice, but they’re also very moisture-resistant and simple to clean as well. Faux wood blinds, while somewhat less resilient and attractive than shutters, do give you the moisture resistance that you need for any kitchen window treatment

Tampa Bedroom Window Treatments

Bedroom Window Treatments

Top Considerations: Privacy, style, light control, energy efficiency

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, blinds, shades

The number one priority for your bedroom should be the level of control you have over light and heat to make it easy to rest. No window treatment can match the level of control you have with plantation shutters, not to mention shutters’ unparalleled ability to give complete privacy and their classic looks that enhance any décor.

Pull-down shades are also a fantastic choice for bedrooms, giving you that much needed privacy as well as a warm look – though they tend to diminish light rather than completely block it like shutters. Shades are also available in a huge variety of styles and colors, making it easy to find an option that fits your bedroom’s colors.

Bathroom Window Treatments

Top Considerations: Privacy, ability to handle humidity and wetness, durability

When you’re looking into window coverings for bathrooms, your two biggest priorities are privacy and resistance to humidity. Both Polywood plantation shutters and faux wood blinds repel water and humidity superbly and in addition allow for top-notch privacy control due to their adjustable louvers.

Tampa Family Room Window Treatments

Family Room Window Treatments

Top Considerations: Fashion, light control, energy efficiency, resilience

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, sliding barn door shutters, blinds, shades

The family room is the place to relax and spend family time together. It’s also one of the rooms guests will probably see most often, so style and light control should be your top priorities.

Plantation shutters give style to your family room, and boast great temperature control and energy efficiency to keep your room comfortable. Chic sliding barn door shutters can be a unique cornerstone to your family room if you want to wow your guests.

Blinds and shades can also be great choices due to being available in a large array of colors and styles, making it easy to coordinate with your room - though they lack the control over temperature and light that shutters provide.

Tampa Basement Window Treatments

Basement window treatments

Top Considerations: Light control, energy efficiency, handling moisture

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, blinds

All basements are different. They can vary in layout, area, how deep they are, and more. Since they vary so much, the recommended window treatment for each basement will differ as well.

For the most part, you should look for window treatments that can fit your unique basement window shape and size, while giving you the ability to let in a good amount of outside light. Polywood plantation shutters check both of those boxes, in addition to resisting the humidity that may be an issue in some basements.

For a different option, blinds are also a great choice for basements in Tampa. Both aluminum and faux wood blinds feature moisture resistance, while also fitting the most common basement window sizes and easily coordinating with your existing decor.

Top Considerations: Style, light control, energy efficiency, resilience

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, shades

Having the right window treatments in your home office can help you stay productive and focused no matter what hour of the day it is or the outside weather. Plantation shutters provide the best control of temperature, light, and sound, making sure you can focus on your work in a comfortable environment.

If noise reduction and energy efficiency aren’t a concern, shades are another fantastic choice that can help fill your space with muted light, making it more mellow and easier to concentrate on your work compared to having no window covering.

Tampa Sunroom Window Treatments

Sunroom window treatments

Top Considerations: Style, light control, energy efficiency, resilience

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, window film, shades

Sunrooms receive a large amount of light and are a fantastic place to relax or entertain - as long as you can adjust the level of light and heat. Plantation shutters lend a wonderful aesthetic against all the glass and are also effective at keeping your space at an ideal temperature with how easy it is to adjust the louvers.

Integrating window film with another window treatment can add to your room’s protection from heat and harmful UV light – so you won’t need to be concerned about the possibility of your carpet, furniture, or one of a kind photos or artwork being damaged by light exposure. Shades can add a more subtle aesthetic that you can customize to your home, but remember that their UV protection won’t be as powerful as other options.

Tampa Laundry Room Window Treatments

Laundry room window treatments

Top Considerations: Budget, light control, energy efficiency, humidity resistance

Window Treatment Recommendations: Blinds, shades

Like it or not, we spend several hours in our laundry room over time. To take some of the stress out of laundry, cozy up your laundry room with window coverings that will keep the room comfortable, but don’t neglect the fact that laundry rooms can generate humidity and you may need to protect drying clothes from UV light.

Blinds are a common choice for Tampa laundry rooms since they’re inexpensive and easy to adjust, making light control simple. Faux wood blinds are a better choice than real wood since they resist moisture. Shades are also an option, adding a soft, muted aesthetic to your laundry room. Bear in mind though that shades typically aren’t very moisture resistant, in case you typically use the room for steaming or ironing clothes.

Don’t fret laundry day anymore!
