Living Room Window Treatment Ideas

1.  Cellular Shades

These shades are ideal for your living room. Firstly, they add a layer of insulation that will help you stay comfortable during the warm and colder seasons. Secondly, cellular shades will also reduce the energy you use in your home. Finally, they come in many fabrics and various color choices. With styles from classic to modern, there are cellular shades to help enhance your design style and level up your living room decor. My client in Lantana was utterly thrilled on install day with this lovely Tri-Light Cellular Shade. She loved that this shade is two shades in one. So she has a blackout shade for privacy and light control when she wants it, and the sheer shade provides light filtering when she wants light. We both loved that it beautifully hides the house’s not-so-pretty view next door while letting in tons of natural light. It’s a win, win, win.

2.  Soft Roman Shades

These timeless shades add warmth and a sophisticated look to any living room. These shades can be made from linen fabric and filter or block light throughout the room. So choose a classic style and material to match your living room design. Plus, many cordless designs give these shades a clean, sleek look from front to back. The color and pattern options are endless with the Made in the Shade selection, so you can feel confident that there are Soft Roman shades that will complement your living room. 

3.  Blinds 

And here is another great window treatment idea for your living room, stick with the tried and true solution of adding custom blinds. Of course, blinds are always a strong choice when it comes to choosing the window treatment that is right for you. Blinds are very versatile and energy-efficient. They keep energy costs down and allow you to filter as much or as little natural light as you want. They can add an edgy modern look or a more traditional look and provide ideal style and comfort. If you wish to upgrade your window treatments, Made in the Shade has a large selection of blinds that are a perfect choice for your window treatments. This homeowner in Corinth loves that blinds allow one to see out while the window is still covered. HaHa! Ideal for checking on squirrels in the backyard without disturbing the blinds. LOL!

4.  Custom Draperies and Side Panels

Made in the Shade offers a variety of colors, fabrics, and patterns of custom drapes and curtains. You will never be disappointed with the look, feel, and quality of Made in the Shade drapes or curtains in your home. Plus, with drapes or blinds, it doesn’t matter how tall or wide your windows are or if your windows have an odd shape. We offer custom choices that allow you to create a personalized and unique look to fit your space. You can use drapes alone or pair them with blinds or shades for combined benefits. These may be one of the best window treatment ideas for your living room, as they are sure to enhance the design of your living room.

5.  Valances and Cornices

Valances and Cornices are classic window treatment solutions. These top treatments are a perfect way to hide the hardware of your existing blinds or shades. They will help to block the light around the top of your window. In addition, they also tend to draw your eyes upward, giving the illusion that the room is more spacious than it may be. Likewise, there are several color and style choices when creating custom valances and cornices, and Made in the Shade offers several designs that will allow you to match your existing style. Plus, we use the highest quality materials and resources with every window treatment we provide. Therefore, these window treatments will surely exceed all your expectations! This client in Robson Ranch, Denton, loved how her valances softened the edges of her shutters and helped to tie the colors in her room together.
