It’s no secret: window furnishings can make or break a room. And one room in the house you don’t want to mess up is the living room. Because you and your family spend so much time in this area, it just has to be right. What you need is window furnishings that are up there with both fashion and functionality. You need something stylish yet practical.
And, thank goodness, there are styles that tick both of those boxes. Some trends never go out of date, and there to stay, simply because they always look beautiful and they really work.
“So which style to choose for my home??” I’m glad you asked, we’ve taken the liberty of doing the hard part for you- here is a quick guide to help you decide which style will best suit your home.
Chic; beautiful; practical. Plantation shutters are a modern, yet classic window treatment that is perfect for any living room situation. They allow natural light and fresh air from outside to flood into the room while maintaining that level of privacy you need. They’re also a great way to hide an unwelcome outlook. Plantation shutters can be supplied with a stained finish if you crave a natural or organic look or painted to complement the decor and colour scheme of the room.
Double roller blinds have become a popular option for many living room situations across the country. Having both a sheer sunscreen blind and a block-out one is an excellent way to maintain privacy, while still being able to enjoy the view of the outdoors. It also offers optimum climate and light control due to the fact that direct sunlight can be kept from entering the home. Top-quality chain-driven mechanics or even motorized options mean that these blinds are user-friendly as well as stylish.
An all-time favourite that never loses their appeal! Timber venetians add an undeniable warmth and class to any room, and they’re intensely practical in a living room scenario. They make the most of any available natural light, while the ability to adjust the panels gives you the level of privacy you need. They are available in a wide range of colours and finishes, and, for the more budget-conscious, white PVC venetians are a particularly cost-effective way of achieving maximum style and functionality.
Roman blinds are guaranteed to compliment both modern and traditionally styled homes. They can be drawn up to allow for maximum daylight, while in their ‘down’ position they are both neat and unobtrusive. The range of fabrics for Roman blinds is huge: from organic and coarse weave materials through to richly coloured and patterned fabrics, there is something for everyone.
They’re stylish and they’re practical. All that, as well as being cost-effective! Vertical blinds are an excellent choice for living room areas, and especially for window sets with sliding doors.
