Each room in a home is different, with different uses, different light, different privacy needs, and more. At Bretz Interiors here in Lakewood, we understand the complexities you could come across as you try to decide which treatment is best for you, including for a room like your living room, which can frequently see a lot of use. Check out some ideas below, and be sure to speak with one of our representatives to see any of the options in person or to get some ideas for your particular situation.
What Does the Room Need?
Living rooms (or some people call them family rooms) are often the gathering space, where a family might hang out after dinner to watch a movie or play games or where you host parties or intimate get-togethers with friends. Depending on the room’s use, you might need UV protection, products for privacy or view-through, or great stylistic fashion. If the room faces south or west, light control could be very important, as might some form of insulation at the window.
Living Room Options
While this isn’t entirely exhaustive, here are a few options to consider for your living room:
- Vertically Oriented Options. If the window openings are large or if your living room includes a sliding glass door, you might need vertically oriented treatments. Luminette® Privacy Sheers or Skyline® Gliding Window Panels might be just the trick for the space, bringing a modern look and contemporary lines.
- Designer Screen Shades. Designer screen shades are great for windows that get lots of sun because they can block up to 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays from damaging your flooring, artwork, and furnishings. Depending on the openness factor (the weave), you can get some view-through with screen shades, offering you an open feel to the room.
- Honeycomb Shades. Designed to be energy-efficient by trapping air in their pockets, honeycomb shades provide insulation at the window while offering light and privacy control. They are available in a wide array of textures and colors that can match or complement most décor styles. And they can be designed with top-down/bottom-up operation, which allows you the best of all worlds by letting you open the product the regular bottom-up way, a light-through-the-top top-down way, or both. Duette® Honeycomb Shades are a popular line, and they offer numerous options.
