Jacksonville Coastal Window Treatment Design Recommendations09/26/2017Kevin McCormack Owning a home in a coastal area like Jacksonville means that how you plan your home design will be a little different than homes in other parts of FL. Coastal homes in our area have both a distinct style, as well as a few considerations that other homes lack – especially when talking about window treatments in Jacksonville homes. These are just a few things you’re able to do with your window treatments to make your coastal house look incredible.Keep Your Views And Your PrivacyHouses near the Jacksonville coast have some of the prettiest views of any home in FL, and even if you’d love to keep them clear day and night, you also need to think about your privacy. Thin blinds or draperies might be all the rage in some homes, but they’ll also give outsiders a clear view of your home.Instead, opt for a window treatment with more versatility like plantation shutters, which offer a great deal of flexibility on both your view and your privacy. The adjustable louvers allow for a wide range of visibility, and the actual shutters can swing open or closed, so you can change at different times of the day or based simply on your mood.Keep Salty Air From Damaging Your [[Window TreatmentOwning a home near the FL coast means you’re all too familiar with the salty air from the ocean. The ocean air can lead to rust on your car, corrosion on your gutters, and damage on your window treatments and windows. For stylish looks that last a lifetime, you need a window treatment that doesn’t retain moisture. That means faux wood, either faux wood blinds or Polywood plantation shutters. Either window treatment will shrug off moisture, keeping your window free from mold, damage, and musty scents.Keep Your Space and Your Options OpenThe coastal doesn’t always have to be bad news, though. One of the best experiences of being a Jacksonville homeowner is swinging your windows open to let that fresh open air come inside. To make it even better, you need a window treatment that doesn’t swing or flap wildly in the breeze. Stay away from light drapes or curtains that only hang from a top rod, and depending on how much wind your neighborhood gets, blinds may even be a bad idea. Instead, look for a more secure window treatment, like shutters. Also keep in mind how your home style could change over time. Jacksonville interior design trends can change fairly often, and purchasing a stylistically versatile window treatment can help you keep up with trends. Some window treatments that will stand the test of time better than others include:Solid white interior shuttersEarth tone honeycomb shadesFaux wood blinds in solid or wood colorsSpruce Up Your Coastal HomeFor more help combatting salty ocean air, staying on the forefront of home fashion, or maintaining your stunning Jacksonville coast views, we can help.
