Your Guide To Window Treatments For Your Living Room In Indianapolis, IN

April 22, 2016

The living room gives you a space where you show off your decorating style. And elegant windows are an opportunity to mount a stunning window treatment to accent your furniture and accentuate the window’s shape.

You’ll want to account for the shape of your windows since many living rooms have specialty shaped or beautiful arched windows. Another thing to think about is how much privacy you want, how you want to frame the view outside, and how much light comes through them. Your living room window treatments should give you control over privacy and light so that your guests get the feeling that they’re welcome.

Your living room window treatment options in Indianapolis include:

Living Room Shutters In Indianapolis

White plantation living room shutters 

In contrast to shades, draperies, and blinds, living room shutters accentuate your triangular, octagonal, arched, circular windows - even your french doors. They’re custom made to your window’s exact specifications. Each and every angle, curve, and corner is intact. And your guests will appreciate that you thought about their privacy - and will take note of your eye for architecture.

If your living room will be used to entertain, the functionality of the window treatment carries as much weight as its beauty. You can use a tilt rod to adjust plantation shutters for more or less light. And you can open the panels all the way to access the window.

If your living room is formal, look for window treatments that are more elegant and sophisticated. Plantation shutters are known for their wide horizontal louvers bound in a frame. Whether you choose a deep stain for Ovation® wood, weathered reclaimed wood, or a traditional white paint for Polywood®, the resulting window covering matches your living room’s style.

Living room shutters keep you and your guests comfortably warm all through the visit. All you have to do is close the shutters tightly for temperature control. And when you have Polywood shutters on your living room windows, you’re also taking advantage of the resulting energy savings.

Barn Doors For Living Room Windows

Sliding barn doors as window treatments highlight the living room’s rich color palette. Pick midnight black paint or an espresso stain to contrast white walls and light colored furniture. For living rooms with eclectic furniture or dark colored walls, a barn door with a fruitwood stain or snow white paint is a better option.

The barn door panels easily roll on a top-mounted track to unveil the scenery. Once the panels are on both sides of the living room window, they become standalone masterpieces, framing the view beautifully.

Shades For Living Room Windows
