A Guide to Window Treatments for Every Room

Have you ever tried to choose window coverings for your home–on your own? It can get overwhelming. We love visiting our clients–in their own homes–so that we can help guide them to the best window treatments for every room. After all, there’s a lot more to covering windows than just covering them. Room function, window direction, home layout…so many considerations. Let’s help you get the wheels turning on which products will fit your needs the best…


The Entry

While the entryway of your home may lead to other rooms, it’s definitely an area that needs its own solutions. Privacy is a big one here–but so is natural light. You want to keep the view into your home at a minimum. At the same time, bringing in light can create the right atmosphere, setting the tone for your home. Consider the placement of your windows–some entryways feature out-of-reach windows that certainly need custom solutions.

The Kitchen

It’s the one room that sees the most traffic over the day: The Kitchen. The changing light can affect the way you use the space, even chasing you away during times of intense sunlight. Set your family–and yourself–up for success with the right window coverings.

The Dining Room

It’s important to make sure your home is customized to your personal lifestyle. That’s why the priority with dining rooms is to know just how your family uses the space. Oftentimes, the dining room can be used for multiple activities across the day that need levels of lighting. In other homes, the dining room is a styled space, reserved only for special occasions. The way your family uses this space will matter a great deal when selecting window treatments.

Great Rooms, Living Rooms, Family Rooms

No matter what you call this gathering space, it’s probably a multipurpose spot for your family. Reading a good book, hanging out with friends, watching TV…there can be a range of activities over the course of the day.

Because the lighting should fit your family’s specific lifestyle–and the way the windows affect the space–you’ll make choices that create the best atmosphere. This might include the sought-after feature of room darkening for rooms that are used for media spaces as well. Others are highlighted best with sheer shades, reducing the glare, but showcasing the view.

The Bedrooms

It should come as no surprise that room darkening is a top feature for bedrooms. The other? Privacy. As you look through our list of window treatments for every room, you’ll see that many of the products can offer the bedrooms of your home the light blocking control. The features of dual shades & top down shades are two favorites when it comes to transforming your sleeping place to a place of calm, airy relaxation during the day.

Powder, Guest, Master & Full Bathrooms

There’s one feature that bathroom window coverings need. Simple adjustment. Why is that? Privacy is necessary–no matter who uses the bathroom & no matter the size. But, being able to adjust that privacy should be quick and easy, whether it’s you, your children or guests.
