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

April 22, 2016

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 highlight their shape and match 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 take into consideration is how much light comes through them, how much privacy you desire, and how you want the view outside framed. 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

Living room with dark wood floors and white plantation shutters 

Unlike draperies, blinds, and shades, living room shutters accentuate your triangular, octagonal, arched, circular windows. They can be even mounted on french doors. They’re custom built to the measurements of your windows. Each curve, corner, and angle 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 are known for their broad 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.

For a living room that will be used more for entertainment, how easy it is to operate the window treatment matters as much 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 you and your guests pleasantly warm throughout the evening. Simply 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 highlight the living room’s rich color palette. Select 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 might work best.

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 masterpieces.

Shades For Living Room Windows

Shades are a great option when 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‘re available in fabrics and patterns ranging from classic to contemporary. And they add appeal 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.
