Living Room Design Ideas

Living Room window treatments can vary widely depending on the style and intended purpose of the space.  Typically, privacy and room darkening isn’t as important in Living Rooms as it is in Bedrooms.  Glare reduction for watching TV and heat control are two functions of window treatments that can make your living space more comfortable.

Additionally, Living Rooms in Florida will frequently have Sliding Glass Doors.  See our recommendations for these types of openings.

Whether its a “Man Cave” or a family gathering spot, the window treatments in your Home Theater can make or break the room.  Light reduction is an important function of window treatments in these rooms to allow a clearer picture from a projector or a flat screen TV.  Sound (reverberation) reduction may be another function of window treatments in your Home Theater.
