Dining Room Window Treatments: Your Unique Space

With home design styles ranging from traditional to modern, the placement of the dining area is unique from home to home. Do you have a separate formal dining room or does your dining space flow into the rest of your living area? No matter the layout, our dining rooms act as the host of many happy occasions. Choosing the right dining room window treatments can benefit your guests’ experience by making it more comfortable and meaningful.

Relax and Stay Awhile

Windows provide a glimpse of nature and a source of light that can brighten a room beautifully, but at certain times of the day, the sunlight can be a nuisance. When entertaining friends and family we want them to be happy and stay awhile. The glare of sunlight through a window makes for an uncomfortable dining experience.

Solving this problem is simple by adding sheer shades as window treatments. Sheer shades allow soft light to shine through while preserving your outdoor view and filtering UV rays that can damage home furnishings. This before and after photos below illustrates how helpful and aesthetically pleasing this window solution can be.


Framed Elegance

Most traditionally built homes have a dining space that is separate from other rooms. In the image below, the dining room window treatments become the focal point of the space. Here, floor to ceiling windows are framed by elegant drapes which adds sophistication and style while allowing a view of the outdoor landscape. For additional protection and light control, adding a layer of window shades would provide the privacy you desire.

Let the Light Shine In

Unfortunately, the same windows that made you fall in love with your home can cause havoc at certain times of the day. Whether it’s a privacy concern or the glare of sunlight while enjoying your morning coffee, you need a solution. Dining room window treatments come in a variety of styles and offer multiple functions. Top Down Bottom Up Shades are a great option for areas in the home that require temporary relief from continually shifting light.

We also love the look of plantation shutters featured below which provide the same benefits. The “Split Tilt” allows for sunlight to shine in from the top while protecting your privacy by closing the bottom.
