Dining Room Window Treatment Ideas For Gainesville Home

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

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

Plantation Shutters For Dining Rooms In Gainesville

Plantation shutters are a stylish dining room window treatment. Their louvers are manufactured with beauty and function as the focus. They allow you absolute control over light and view. Adjust the shutter louvers with a tilt rod to see the desired amount of view and brightness. And when the weather gets colder, shut the dining room shutters all the way for maximum energy efficiency.

What’s unique about plantation shutters is that they can be custom fashioned to the exact shape of the window in your dining room. It doesn’t matter if the window is a arched, triangle, circle, or octagon. Dining room shutters can be made to fit your window perfectly. Find out more about special shaped shutters.

Have dinner with family in front of your pick of Polywood® or Ovation® wood shutters. Polywood shutters are built from a patented synthetic material that will never warp. Did we mention? Polywood is the highest rated window treatment for energy efficiency. And that’s important when considering covering windows in the dining room. Ovation shutters are built from hardwood and can be customized with 28 stains to complement your color scheme.

Sliding Barn Doors For Dining Room Windows In Gainesville

One of the hottest trends in home decor in Gainesville is sliding barn doors. And now they can be set up on the windows in your dining room!

If the windows in your dining room have space on both sides, sliding barn doors are the modern window treatment you’ve been looking for. When closed, they’re a stunning piece of art. When opened, sliding barn door shutters border the view outside your dining room window elegantly. And with plenty of hardware options, you can have the barn door shutters match your dining room furniture. Read more on sliding barn doors for windows.

Shades For Dining Rooms In Gainesville

Shades are a classic dining room window treatment. They’re easy to mount and operate. And you can choose between different patterns and fabrics so that the shades match the decor in your dining room.

However, these color options may come at the price of temperature and light control. The shades are made from a fabric that might not be able to block out the light well. And the delicate material won’t insulate against the outside temperatures.
