Denver Coastal Window Treatment Tips

September 26, 2017

Living in a coastal region like Denver means that how you approach your home design may be a little different than homes in other cities in Colorado. Coastal homes here have both a unique style, as well as a few aspects that other homes lack – even when talking about window treatments in Denver households.

This is what you can do with your window coverings to make your coastal house look fantastic.
 

Preserve Your Views And Your Privacy

Homes near the Denver coast can have some of the best views of any home in Colorado, and while you might prefer to keep them unobstructed all day long, you also need to think about your privacy. Thin blinds or drapes might be popular in a few homes, but they’ll also give outsiders a clear view of your home.

Rather, opt for a window treatment with more versatility like plantation shutters, which give you a great deal of flexibility on maintaining your privacy as well as your views. The tilting louvers allow for a wide range of visibility, and the shutter panels themselves can swing fully open or shut, so you can change how much privacy you have at various hours of the day or based simply on your style.

 

Don’t Let Salty Air Affect Your Window Treatments

Owning a home near the Colorado coast means you’re no stranger to the salty air from the ocean. The ocean air can cause rust on your car, corrosion on your gutters, and mildew on your window treatments and windows.

For form and function to last you years, you want a window covering that won’t hold moisture. That means faux wood, either faux wood blinds or Polywood plantation shutters. Either window treatment will shrug off moisture, keeping your window free from mildew, damage, and musty scents.
 

Keep Your Space Open, Keep Your Fashion Options Open

The ocean doesn’t always have to be bad news, however. One of the best experiences of being a Denver homeowner is swinging your windows open to let that fresh open air come inside. To do that, you need a window treatment that won’t swing or blow wildly in the breeze. Stay away from light drapes or curtains strung from a rod, and depending on how windy your neighborhood gets, you may also want to stay away from blinds. Rather, look for a a window treatment that will stay put, such as shutters.

Also keep in mind how your home design might change over time. Denver interior design trends can change fairly often, and purchasing a versatile window covering can help you keep up with trends. Some window treatments that will stand the test of time better than others include:

  • Solid white interior shutters

  • Neutral tone cellular shades

  • Faux wood blinds in solid or wood colors
