Holly Perron

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 consider how much privacy you want, 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 light and privacy so that your guests feel welcome.

Your options for living room window treatments in Hartford include:

Living Room Shutters In Hartford

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

For a living room that will be used more for entertainment, how functional a window treatment is matters as much as its appearance. 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 access the window.

If your living room is formal, look for window treatments that are more sophisticated. Plantation shutters are known for their broad horizontal louvers enclosed in a frame. Whether you select 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 decorating style.

Living room shutters keep your guests comfortably warm throughout the evening. Just close the shutters tightly for temperature control. And with Polywood shutters for living room shutters, 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. If your living room has dark colored walls or eclectic furniture patterns, a barn door with snow white paint or a fruitwood stain might work best.

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

Shades For Living Room Windows
