Your Guide To Window Treatments For Your Living Room In Honolulu, HI

Darren Wong

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

You’ll want to account for the shape of your windows since many living rooms have beautiful arched or specialty shaped windows. You’ll also want to take into consideration how much privacy you desire, how you want the view outside framed, and how much light comes through them. Look for living room window treatments that give you control over privacy and light so that your guests feel right at home.

Your options for living room window treatments in Honolulu include:

Living Room Shutters In Honolulu

Unlike draperies, blinds, and shades, living room shutters accentuate your arched, circular, triangular, octagonal windows. They can be even mounted on french doors. They’re custom built to the measurements of your windows. Each angle, curve, and corner is preserved. And your guests will take notice of your eye for architecture - and appreciate that you thought about their privacy.

If your living room is formal, choose window treatments that are more sophisticated and elegant. Plantation shutters feature broad horizontal louvers encased in a frame. Whether you select 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.

For a living room that will be used more for entertainment, 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 can keep you and your guests pleasantly warm throughout the visit. Just 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

Sliding barn doors as window treatments play off of the living room’s rich color palette. 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 a fruitwood stain or snow white paint is a better option.

Enjoy the landscape when you glide the barn door panels on a track. With the panels on the sides of the living room window, they frame the view and become standalone works of art.

Shades For Living Room Windows

Shades work great if you‘re looking for living room window coverings to showcase multiple colors or specific colors. Roman shades are the most popular kind of shades in Honolulu. They come in fabrics and patterns ranging from classic to contemporary. And they add charm to even the tallest of windows in your living room.

Some shades may not be effective at blocking light coming through the window. Ask a window treatment professional about a particular shade’s room darkening efficiency.
