When someone walks into your home, the living room is usually the first thing they see. And it’s in your living room that you and your loved ones spend the majority of your time together.
The living room, as the least utilitarian of all our rooms, requires a little more design attention. Instead of being overlooked, the living room will be used and appreciated if it is nice and comfy. The correct furnishings and decorating accents may provide both style and comfort.
Window coverings are a vital part of any room, but which ones you choose for your living room will be determined by how you and your family utilize them. Do you prefer a more formal appearance or a more relaxed appearance?
Whether you need to outfit those old drafty windows with an energy-efficient window treatment or simply update old blinds or shades, a new look will bring them to life and, in turn, beckon you to this unused, often forgotten space.
- Roman Shades
Roman shades are a modern and clean-lined alternative to classic full-length drapes for a soft, elegant effect in your living room. Plus, if your living space is mostly white and neutral, they’re a great way to add visual interest. They also have lovely aesthetic possibilities because they can be made out of practically any material to match your decor. If there are kids and pets present, opt for a cordless or motorized lift so you can rest easy knowing that your family is protected from dangling cords. The best of all worlds, Roman blinds quickly invigorate the living space without becoming gaudy or unduly formal.
- Cellular Shades
Cellular shades are an excellent choice for the living room if you want a fresh, clean aesthetic. These are the most energy-efficient window coverings. They’re made to trap air between the shade’s layers, forming an insulating barrier that helps reduce energy loss. Their horizontal pleats are peaceful to the eye, gently filtering any incoming light to create a warm glow and practically disappearing from view when closed. Cellular shades are available in a wide range of styles and colors to match your décor while maintaining a pleasant temperature in your living area.
Shutters, like luxury living room furniture, give the timeless beauty of rich timber. Plus, they’re just as lovely on the exterior as they are on the inside of your home. They’re also extremely long-lasting and offer excellent sound absorption. Shutters are one of our most popular living room window treatment ideas because they look as beautiful from the inside as the outside. Interior shutters also have the potential to block light while also preventing extreme temperature swings.
