The Guide To Window Treatments For Your Living Room In Charlotte, NC

Neil Blackwelder

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

You’ll want to consider the shape of your windows since many living rooms have beautiful arched or specialty shaped windows. Another thing to take into consideration is how much light comes through them, how much privacy you want, and how you want to frame the view outside. Your living room window treatments should give you complete control over light and privacy so that your guests feel right at home.

Your options for living room window treatments in Charlotte include:

Living Room Shutters In Charlotte

Unlike blinds, shades, and draperies, living room shutters match your triangular, octagonal, arched, circular windows - even your french doors. They’re custom made to your window’s exact specifications. Each and every curve, corner, and angle is preserved. And your guests will take notice of your eye for architecture - and appreciate your concern for their privacy.

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 open to operate the window.

For a formal living room, look for window treatments that are more sophisticated and elegant. Plantation shutters are known for their wide horizontal louvers enclosed 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 style.

Living room shutters help keep your guests comfortably warm all through the visit. Just close the shutters tightly 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

Sliding barn doors as window treatments bring out the rich color palette of your living room. Pick 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 might work best.

The barn door panels easily move on a top-mounted track to unveil the scenery. Once the panels are on both sides of the window, they frame the view and become standalone pieces of art.

Shades For Living Room Windows

Shades work great when you want your living room window coverings to showcase specific colors or multiple colors. Roman shades are the most popular shades in Charlotte. They‘re available in patterns and fabrics ranging from classic to modern. And they add charm to even the highest of living room windows.

Keep in mind that some shades may not be effective at blocking light. Ask a window covering professional about the room darkening capabilities of a particular shade.
