When you’re shopping for window treatments, you may be surprised by just how many options are available from our team of experts at Ambiance Window Coverings. In fact, it can be a bit overwhelming. You may start by focusing on the wide array of Hunter Douglas styles, materials, and colors we carry but our team of blind, shades, and shutter designers suggests that you may want to begin by considering window covering options by room. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of things to consider when buying window treatments for every room in your home.
In this post, we’ll go room by room to give you an idea of what to focus on to create a functional and stylish window treatment look in your kitchen, living room, dining room, and more!
You’ll want to choose kitchen Hunter Douglas window coverings that are excellent in three areas: light control, ventilation, and material strength. As with all window treatments, light control is very important—most likely you’ll want a sheer or shade that lets in plenty of natural light while also providing the option for privacy when you need it.
For those of us who cook often in our kitchens, though, ventilation and material strength are equally important. You should choose a window covering with excellent breathability that allows for air circulation, and the material you select should be easy to clean and be able to stand up to high heat and humidity.
For many of us, our home’s living room is the central gathering place, and the focal point of this room is often large windows with beautiful views. With these windows, though, comes the likelihood of too much sun coming through. This can lead to your furniture, art, and other valuables being damaged over time by UV rays, so when choosing a window treatment for your living room, great news is that Hunter Douglas provides several window covering options that provide exceptional UV protection.
At Ambiance Window Coverings, we think about the purpose your room will serve while shopping for window coverings. If you watch a lot of TV in your living room, for instance, look at window treatments that can control glare and darken the room.
If you do a lot of entertaining, look for window treatments that lend a touch of elegance to your dining room while also providing privacy and soft lighting. For this room, it’s important to be able to control the level of natural light that comes into the room without darkening it completely.
In choosing window treatments for your bedroom, our team of custom window covering designers suggest you focus on privacy and light control. If you like to sleep in a very dark room, for example, you should go for treatments with more opaque, room-darkening fabrics and designs that eliminate light gaps and seams. If you have a beautiful view from your bedroom windows, there are treatment designs available that allow you to take advantage of the view when your window covering treatments are open and still provide light control and privacy when closed.
