A well-designed living / great room is a focal point in a home. After all, it’s in these rooms where so much entertainment and family life happens. It’s here that we gather and spend quality time with loved ones. Window treatments are an important component of a well-appointed space and it’s important to consider design aesthetics when choosing them. Don’t settle for function over style when you can expect both from Custom Window Fashions.
Modern Living Room Window Treatments
Modern spaces are free from visual clutter and use clean lines, natural materials, and polished metals. Modern design places an emphasis on light, so it’s especially important in these spaces to get the window treatments just right. You’ll want something that allows light flowing in while offering, for practical considerations, glare control and privacy. Try pairing elegant solid colored drapery panels hung on Rings over decorative Metal poles with under- layered soft sheer curtains for an amazingly chic look.
Traditional Living Room Window Treatments
Traditional living rooms tell a family’s story through heirlooms and pay homage to the past with antiques, classic art, regal furniture, and ornate finishes. Symmetry is key in traditional living rooms and window treatments, particularly draperies and complementing valances (TopTreatments), can provide this balance. Velvets, silks, and leathers exude elegance and are perfect choices for traditional spaces. If you love patterns, go with something classic like damask, exciting florals or daring stripes! To spice it up a little, add trims – Rope or Welt cord, (Sorry, Bead or Tassel Trims hard to find these days)! If using Upholstered Cornices, consider shaped bottoms with banding or decorative Nailhead trim. Spectacular!
Having a traditional sense of style does not mean living in the past! Traditional styled treatments can be paired with today’s technology for a timeless look with unmatched functionality.
Transitional Living Room Window Treatments
Transitional living rooms harmoniously blend traditional and contemporary furniture and finishes to create a timeless space that exudes comfort and livability. In transitional living /great rooms you’ll find furniture with both shaped and straight lines, limited accessories, fabrics with lots of texture, and restricted color palettes. Plantation Shutters also really work great in transitional designs (or any design for that matter). Almost anything goes in this style, just let your imagination fly but keep the color schemes compatible.
