Jacksonville Living Room Window Treatments

Living room window treatments

Top Considerations: Style, energy efficiency, custom shapes, durability
Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, barn doors shutters, shades

Living rooms usually feature the most sizable windows in your house, and it’s the place in which you’ll spend time with guests. That makes it a great place to choose window treatments that show off your fashion sense and offer you control over the room’s comfort. Some of the most ideal window coverings for rooms that are heavily used are plantation shutters and sliding barn doors.

Plantation shutters have a ornate style and are incredibly durable while allowing you the highest level of control over temperature and light levels, meeting all the living room criteria. On the same note, barn door shutters can offer a classic, understated character to your living room, while giving you great control over the light in the room.

Jacksonville Dining Room Window Treatments

Dining room window treatments

Top Considerations: Light control, style
Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, reclaimed wood shutters, barn doors shutters, shades, blinds

Your home’s dining room may be a formal room you use only occasionally, or as your common family meal place. Regardless, you want a window treatment that can control for light and add to your décor to make your dining room a relaxing area.

Barn door shutters can give a nostalgic, almost romantic flavor to any dining room - in addition to giving you extensive control of the amount of light and privacy you desire. Plantation shutters have a traditional style but are also versatile enough to go with more contemporary home design. Shades, though they give you less control over temperature, still allow for some light control to enhance the mood in your dining room, as well as being available in a large selection of colors and styles to match any décor.

Top Considerations: Style, ease of cleaning, resistance to humidity and water
Window Treatment Recommendations: Polywood plantation shutters, faux wood blinds

A lot goes on in your kitchen, from preparing meals to showing off to guests and then some. Due to the many uses of the kitchen, you’ll want a window covering that’s both versatile and able to stand up to whatever happens in the room.

Polywood plantation shutters meet these criteria perfectly. Not only do shutters’ neutral tones go with almost any style choice, but they’re also very resistant to moisture and a breeze to clean to boot. Faux wood blinds, while somewhat less resilient and upscale than shutters, do offer the moisture resistance that you need for any kitchen window treatment

Jacksonville Bedroom Window Treatments

Bedroom Window Treatments

Top Considerations: Privacy, style, light control, energy efficiency
Window Treatment Recommendations:  Plantation shutters, blinds, shades

The first priority for your bedroom should be the level of control you have over light and heat to make it easy to sleep. No window covering can match the level of control you have with plantation shutters, not to mention shutters’ unparalleled ability to give complete privacy and their stellar looks that pair seamlessly with any décor.

Pull-down shades are also a fantastic bedroom choice, giving you that much needed privacy and a cozy look – though they tend to soften light rather than block it out completely like shutters. Shades are also available in a vast array of styles and colors, making it easy to select a shade that fits your bedroom’s colors.

Jacksonville Family Room Window Treatments

Family Room Window Treatments

Top Considerations: Style, light control, energy efficiency, durability
Window Treatment Recommendations:  Plantation shutters, sliding barn door shutters, blinds, shades

Your family room is the spot to unwind and spend time together with your family. It’s also one of the rooms guests will likely see the most, so fashion and light control should be your top considerations.

Plantation shutters give flair to your family room, and offer great temperature control and energy efficiency to keep your space comfortable. Upscale sliding barn door shutters can star as a unique focal point to your family room if your goal is to impress your guests.

Blinds and shades can also be great choices due to being available in a wide variety of colors and styles, making it easy to coordinate with your established decor - though they lack the same degree of light and temperature control that shutters give you.

Jacksonville Basement Window Treatments

Basement window treatments

Top Considerations: Light control, energy efficiency, humidity resistance
Window Treatment Recommendations:  Plantation shutters, blinds

All basements are different. They can vary in shape, dimensions, how far underground they are, and beyond. Since they vary so much, the recommended window treatment for each basement can be a case by case scenario.

For the most part, you want window treatments that fit the unique shape and size of your basement windows, while giving you the ability to let in a good amount of outside light. Polywood plantation shutters fulfill both of those criteria, in addition to handling humidity that might be an issue in some basements.

For a different option, blinds are also a great choice for basements in Jacksonville. Both faux wood and aluminum blinds offer moisture resistant qualities, in addition to fitting the most frequently-seen basement window sizes and easily fitting your existing decor.

Top Considerations: Style, light control, energy efficiency, durability
Window Treatment Recommendations:  Plantation shutters, shades

Having the right window treatments in your home office can help you stay productive and focused no matter the time of day or the outside weather. Plantation shutters give you ultimate control of sound, light, and temperature, ensuring that you’re able to work in a comfortable environment.

If noise reduction and temperature control aren’t an issue, shades are a more budget-friendly option that can help fill your room with soft light, making it more calm and easier to focus on your work relative to having no window treatment.

Jacksonville Sunroom Window Treatments

Sunroom window treatments

Top Considerations: Fashion, light control, energy efficiency, resilience
Window Treatment Recommendations:  Plantation shutters, window film, shades

Sunrooms get a lot of light and are a fantastic place to lounge or host guests - as long as you can have control over the level of light and heat. Plantation shutters can be breathtaking against all the glass and are also effective at keeping your space at an ideal temperature with how easy it is to adjust the louvers.

Pairing window film with a second window covering can boost your room’s protection from heat and harmful UV rays – so you won’t need to fret about the possibility of your carpet, furniture, or one of a kind photos or artwork being damaged by light exposure. Shades can add a more subtle look that you can tailor to your home, but know that their UV protection won’t be as powerful as other options.

Jacksonville Laundry Room Window Treatments

Laundry room window treatments

Top Considerations: Budget, light control, energy efficiency, humidity resistance
Window Treatment Recommendations: Blinds, shades

Whether we like it or not, we spend numerous hours in the laundry room over time. To make laundry time a little more tolerable, cozy up your laundry room with window coverings that will make the room comfortable, but don’t neglect the fact that laundry rooms can generate humidity and you may need to protect drying clothes from harsh light.

Blinds are a fantastic choice for Jacksonville laundry rooms since they’re inexpensive and easy to adjust, making light control simple. Faux wood blinds tend to be preferable to real wood because they resist moisture. Shades are also an option, giving a soft, muted style to your laundry room. Bear in mind though that shades typically aren’t very moisture resistant, in case you typically use the room for steaming or ironing clothes.

Don’t fear the laundry room anymore!
