Denver Dining Room Window Treatments

Dining room window treatments

Top Considerations: Light control, style

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, reclaimed wood shutters, barn doors shutters, shades, blinds

Your home’s dining room may be a formal room you use only for special occasions, or as your common family meal place. Regardless, you want a window covering that can let you control the mood and complement your décor to make your dining room a comfortable place.

Barn door shutters can give a rustic, almost romantic sense to your dining room - in addition to giving you extensive control over the level of privacy and light you want. Plantation shutters have a similar traditional style but are also versatile enough to go with more modern décor. Shades, though they offer less temperature control, still allow for some light control to enhance the mood in your dining room, in addition to being available in a huge selection of fashions and colors to match any décor.

Top Considerations: Style, ease of cleaning, resistance to humidity and water

Window Treatment Recommendations: Polywood plantation shutters, faux wood blinds

Your kitchen is a busy place, from cooking meals to hosting guests and beyond. Because of the many uses of your kitchen, you’ll want a window treatment that’s both versatile and durable enough to stand up to whatever is thrown at it (sometimes literally).

Polywood plantation shutters meet these needs perfectly. Not only do the neutral tones match almost any home design choice, but they’re also very resistant to moisture and easy to clean to boot. Faux wood blinds, while less resilient and attractive than shutters, do give you the water resistance necessary for any kitchen window treatment

Top Considerations: Privacy, style, light control, energy efficiency

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, blinds, shades

The number one priority for your bedroom will likely be light and comfort control to make it easy to rest. No window treatment option can match the level of control you have with plantation shutters, not to mention their incomparable ability to give complete privacy and their beautiful looks that pair seamlessly with any décor.

Pull-down shades are also a popular choice for bedrooms, giving you that all-important privacy as well as a warm look – although they tend to soften light rather than block it out completely like shutters. Shades can also be purchased in a huge variety of colors and styles, making it easy to find one that coordinates with your bedroom’s colors.

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, sliding barn door shutters, blinds, shades

The family room is your spot to relax and spend family time together. It’s also a room guests will likely see more often than others, so your top considerations should be style and light control.

Plantation shutters add flair to your family room, and offer great temperature control and insulation to keep your space comfortable. Chic sliding barn door shutters can be a unique centerpiece to your family room if your goal is to wow your guests.

Blinds and shades may be good choices since they’re available in a vast variety of colors and styles, making it simple to match with your established decor - though they don’t provide the same degree of light or temperature control that shutters do.

Denver Basement Window Treatments

Basement window treatments

Top Considerations: Light control, energy efficiency, moisture resistance

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, blinds

Each basement is unique. They can vary in structure, dimensions, how far underground they are, and beyond. Because of these differences, the best window covering for each basement can differ.

In general, you should look for window treatments that will fit your unique basement window shape and size, while giving you the ability to let in a good amount of outside light. Polywood plantation shutters have both of these qualities, in addition to handling humidity that might be an issue in some basements.

Aside from shutters, blinds are also a common choice for basements in Denver. Both faux wood and aluminum blinds boast moisture resistance, in addition to fitting the most frequently-seen basement window shapes and easily matching your existing decor.

Top Considerations: Style, light control, energy efficiency, durability

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, shades

Installing the right window coverings in your home office can help contribute to a productive space where you can get work done. Plantation shutters offer excellent control of sound, light, and temperature, ensuring that you can work in a comfortable environment.

If sound dampening and insulation aren’t a concern, shades are another fantastic choice that can help fill your space with soft light, making it more relaxing and easier to focus on your work relative to having no window covering.

Denver Sunroom Window Treatments

Sunroom window treatments

Top Considerations: Style, light control, energy efficiency, durability

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, window film, shades

Sunrooms receive a large amount of light and are an ideal place to lounge or entertain - as long as you can have control over the amount of light and heat that come in. Plantation shutters lend a wonderful aesthetic against all the glass and are also effective at keeping your space at an ideal temperature with a simple adjustment of the louvers.

Pairing window film with another window covering can add to your room’s protection from heat and harmful ultraviolet rays – meaning you won’t have to fret about fading carpet, furniture or heirloom photos or artwork. Shades offer a softer aesthetic that you can customize to your house, but remember that their UV protection won’t be as effective as other options.

Denver Laundry Room Window Treatments

Laundry room window treatments

Top Considerations: Budget, light control, energy efficiency, humidity resistance

Window Treatment Recommendations: blinds, shades

Whether we want to admit it or not, we spend a lot of hours in the laundry room each year. To de-stress some of those chores, decorate your laundry room with window coverings that will keep the room comfortable, but don’t forget that laundry rooms can generate humidity and you may need to protect drying clothes from harsh light.

Blinds are a common choice for Denver laundry rooms due to their lower price tag and quick adjustability, making light control a breeze. Faux wood blinds tend to be preferable to real wood because they resist moisture. Shades are also an option, adding a soft, mellow style to your laundry room. Remember though that shades usually aren’t very moisture resistant, if you typically use the room for steaming or ironing clothes.
