Dining Room Window Treatment Designs For Seattle Home

January 13, 2016
The dining room is the natural place where family and friends get together in your Seattle home. Most dining rooms have windows that filter in light from outside and some of the view. But when what you’re looking for is more privacy without forgoing beauty and energy efficiency, which window treatment works best in your dining room?

Here are three dining room window treatment ideas to help you decide.

Plantation Shutters For Dining Rooms In Seattle

Plantation shutters are a modern dining room window treatment. The shutter louvers are engineered with function and elegance at the forefront. They allow you ultimate control of light and view. Tilt the shutter louvers with a tilt rod to let in as much of the light and view as you want. And when the weather gets colder, shut these dining room shutters completely for energy efficiency.

The best thing about plantation shutters is that they can be custom made to the exact shape of the window in your dining room. It doesn’t matter if the window is a circle, octagon, arched, or triangle. Dining room shutters can be tailored to fit your window just right. Find out more about special shaped shutters.

Toss a salad with family and enjoy your choice of Polywood® or Ovation® wood shutters. Polywood shutters are made from a patented synthetic material that will never warp. Did we mention? Polywood is the best window treatment for energy efficiency. And that’s exactly what you want for big dining room windows. Ovation shutters are made from 100% hardwood and can be customized with 28 stains to go with your decorating style.

Shades For Dining Rooms In Seattle

Shades are a classic dining room window treatment. They’re simple to install and operate. And you can selectfrom different patterns and fabrics so that the shades match the style of your dining room.

But your beautiful shades may come at the cost of brightness and climate control. The shades may not be able to block out the light well. And the delicate material won’t deflect the impact of the natural elements.
