Your Guide To Window Treatments For Your Living Room In San Antonio, TX

Tyler Jorgensen

The living room is where you put your decorating skills to the test. And beautiful windows are an opportunity to install an equally stunning window treatment to highlight their shape and match your furniture.

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

Your options for living room window treatments in San Antonio include:

Living Room Shutters In San Antonio

White plantation living room shutters 

Unlike blinds, shades, and draperies, living room shutters accentuate your arched, circular, triangular, octagonal windows. They can be even installed on french doors. They’re custom made to the dimensions of your windows. All the angles, curves, and corners are intact. And your guests will appreciate that you thought about their privacy - and will take note of your eye for architecture.

For a living room that will be used more for entertainment, how easy it is to operate the window treatment carries as much weight as its appearance. You can use a tilt rod to adjust plantation shutters for more or less light. And you can swing the panels completely open to reach the window.

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

Living room shutters can keep you and your guests comfortably warm throughout the evening. All you have to do is 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 bring out the living room’s rich color palette. Choose midnight black paint or an espresso stain to balance white walls and light colored furniture. If your living room has dark colored walls or eclectic furniture patterns, a barn door with snow white paint or a fruitwood stain is a better option.

The barn door panels easily move on a track mounted above the window to reveal the scenery outside the window. Once the panels are on both sides of the living room window, they frame the view and become standalone works of art.

Shades For Living Room Windows

They come in patterns and fabrics ranging from traditional to modern. And they add charm to even the highest of windows in your living room.

But some shades can be ineffective at blocking light. You’ll need to check with a window treatment professional about the room darkening capabilities of a particular shade.
