Best Window Blinds & Shades To Use In The Living Room
10 Mar 2020
As the name suggests, the living room is a common area of the home that brings families together. Amongst many activities, we enjoy our morning cup of tea, relax, read, watch TV, listen to music, and entertain family and friends. The living room also defines the lifestyle we choose to live and the way it is designed is a reflection of that lifestyle, including when it comes to the choice of window treatments.

Window Treatments For Your Living Room

Light can transform a home when you know how to manage it, but you also need a set of window treatments that enable it. Whatever your needs, there are a variety of blinds and shades that are as fashionable as they are functional, that enhance the ambience of your living room.

Superior Styling, Extraordinary Comfort

A perfect combination of style and comfort for any living room is provided by the Duette® Honeycomb Shades. These blinds have a unique cellular construction design that adds a layer of insulation at the window, so you are comfortable through the seasons, while also reducing energy consumption and external noise.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades come in a range of pleat sizes, fabrics (including moisture resistant ones), colours, opacities and textures that work beautifully with the decor of any living room. You can even combine two fabrics on the same shade for more light control, or choose the Top-Down/Bottom-Up option that enhances your views of the outside, while still maintaining privacy.

With this versatility are also solutions for unusual window shapes and types - be they large picture windows, arches, sidelights or circles. Enjoying peace and quietude isn't a luxury. With the hustle and bustle of modern life, it has become a necessity, and these honeycomb blinds bring that home to you.

Innovative Draperies That Transform Light

Luminette® Privacy Sheers combine sheer drapery panels with soft, vertical rotating fabric vanes fixed to the back of the sheer to provide light control and privacy. When the vanes are rotated open, the sheer fabric diffuses sunlight into a softer, more ethereal version of itself. You can rotate the vanes to direct light where you'd like, or close them to enjoy the privacy provided by traditional draperies.

Available in many options, all of which can bring an integrated look to your living room, these vertical fabric blinds are the perfect choice for wide expanses of glass, sliding doors, and other large window openings. These sheers can also be positioned to protect your floors and furniture from UV damage, while leaving unobstructed your views to the outside.

And in order to maintain a sleek, modern look, the hardware is concealed behind the headrail, adding a refined and elegant look to your windows.

Bold Design with Beautiful Light Control

Pirouette® Window Shadings provide a bold and modern alternative to the look and feel of traditional fabric blinds. Softly contoured fabric vanes magically transform harsh daylight by diffusing  it, giving you complete control over light filtration, privacy, and views of the world beyond.

A large part of the uniqueness of the Pirouette® Window Shadings is the revolutionary Invisi-Lift™ system that allows the vanes to float gracefully on a single sheer backing. They block up to 81% of harmful UV rays when the vanes are fully open, and 99% when closed. Whatever setting you choose, your flooring and furnishings are protected.

Pirouette® Window Shadings are available with both light-filtering and room-darkening fabric opacities, two vane sizes and a wide variety of colours to perfectly complement your room's colour palette. Of course, the full beauty of the fabric will be visible to all within the living room.

The Last Word

While you could have drapes, shades, blinds or sheers, or a combination of them, the beauty lies in mixing and matching different window treatments to achieve the ambience you desire. Drapes add layers of texture when combined with blinds or shades, while sheers allow for a softness not possible with other window treatments.

So whether you're looking to regulate ambient temperature, have greater control over light, or fabrics that are not only modern, but stylish in design, then there are few options that can help create that look throughout your living room.
