Look for living room window treatments that give you complete control over privacy and light so that your guests feel welcome.

Living Room Shutters In Cleveland

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

If your living room will be used to entertain, how easy it is to operate the window treatment has as much weight as its appearance. You can adjust the shutter louvers using a tilt rod to get as much light as you want. And you can open the panels all the way to operate the window.

If your living room is formal, you’ll want window treatments that are more sophisticated. Plantation shutters are easily recognizable by their wide horizontal louvers encased in a frame. Whether you select a deep stain for Ovation® wood, weathered reclaimed wood, or a traditional white paint for Polywood®, the resulting custom window treatment matches your living room’s style.

Living room shutters keep you and your guests pleasantly warm throughout the evening. All you have to do is close the shutters completely for temperature control. And when you have Polywood shutters for living room shutters, you’re also taking advantage of the resulting energy savings.

Barn Doors For Living Room Windows

As window treatments, sliding barn doors highlight the rich color palette of your living room. Pick an espresso stain or midnight black paint to contrast light colored furniture and white walls. For living rooms with dark colored walls or eclectic furniture patterns, a barn door with a fruitwood stain or snow white paint might work best.

The barn door panels easily slide on a top-mounted track to unveil the scenery outside the window. Once the panels are on the sides of the window, they frame the view and become standalone masterpieces.
