Holidays can be joyful times, and also emotional roller coasters, but there is one familiar commonality that can make each holiday rich, meaningful, and enjoyable: gathering with family and friends. Get-togethers are among the things that people look forward to the most with each approaching holiday. What better place to flop onto the couch for long, late-night conversations and to catch up than in the living room?
If you are getting together with guests in your home, as host or hostess, you might want everything to be just perfect. With that in mind, think of what mood you want to instill — lighting and privacy are everything.
You should be able to keep your get-togethers comfortably private, while being able to let in as much light as you need to set the tone just right. That means quality living room window treatments because nothing makes a room feel more empty and impersonal than bare windows. So, treat your living room windows with the right window treatments. Plus, you can add that last personal, finishing touch to complement and accent the unique way you design your interior.
Whatever your unique décor needs, you’ll find many living room blinds and shades that are not only functional, but also fashionable. Following are some benefits and considerations of adorning the windows of this key gathering place where you get comfortable, relax, listen to music, watch your favorite holiday movies and shows, and get together with the important people in your life.
Which Window Treatments Are Best for the Living Room?
Start by taking into account what your priorities are in regard to entertaining: Comfort? A warmer, more natural feel? Maximum light control? Modern interior style?
Here are a few options for maximizing the holiday socializing experience for you and your guests:
The Classic, Natural Richness and Warmth of Wood Blinds
Wooden blinds are a popular choice for living room windows because of how well they work with just about any décor, whether traditional or modern. Whether constructed in softer or hard wood, wood blinds offer a warm, earthy, cozy dimension to any holiday gathering. In addition, there is a vast selection of finishes, embellishments, slat sizes, etc. to help you customize your living room’s style and complement other decorative elements within the space.
Louvered Shutters: Traditional, Yet Contemporary
For covering your living room windows for holiday gatherings, you might first think of blinds, shades, or curtains (or some layered combination of the above), but never underestimate the classic, warm elegance that louvered shutters can bring to your interior. As a bonus, all year long, interior window shutters can provide a significant degree of energy-efficiency. The louvers are built to insulate against heat and cold, whether winter, fall, summer, or spring. Stay cozy with your guests in your living room, no matter what the occasion!
Zebra (Dual) Shades: Unique and Modern
A Zebra, or dual shade is a popular window treatment choice for homeowners wanting a private and simple way of living. Zebra shades also offer a stylish, one-of-a-kind, modern appeal. These shades layer beautiful light-filtering sheer fabrics alternating horizontally with a solid opaque fabric to create a streamlined look, offer flexibility of use, and to complement your décor in just about any room. Imagine a functional pairing of reliable roller shades and traditional horizontal blinds.
Zebras provide maximum light blockage, and can be opened up to a shuttered view with the twist of a wand or touch of a button. They bring a modern flair to your living room, and make a stylish backdrop for any holiday gathering. Zebras are available in a wide selection of styles, textures, and colors.
What Kind of Look and Feel Do You Want in Your Gathering Space?
Impactful elegance and versatility are hallmark features of traditional wood blinds and louvered shutters. The classic design and reliability of wood also features a natural, earth-friendly warmth that makes getting together for holidays an event to never be forgotten.
