Living Room Shutters In New Brunswick

Living room with dark wood floors and white plantation shutters 

In contrast to shades, draperies, and blinds, living room shutters match your circular, triangular, octagonal, arched windows - even your french doors. They’re custom made to your window’s exact specifications. Each curve, corner, and angle is intact. And your guests will appreciate your concern for their privacy - and will take notice of your eye for architecture.

For a formal living room, look for window treatments that are more sophisticated and elegant. Plantation shutters feature wide horizontal louvers enclosed in a frame. Whether you select a deep stain for Ovation® wood, weathered reclaimed wood, or a traditional white paint for Polywood®, the resulting window covering matches the decorating style of your living room.

For a living room that will be used more for entertainment, how easy it is to operate the window treatment carries as much weight as its appearance. You can move the shutter louvers with a tilt rod to get as much light as you want. And you can open the panels completely to access the window.

Living room shutters keep your guests comfortably warm all through the evening. All you have to do is close the shutters completely for temperature control. And when you have Polywood shutters on your living room windows, you’re also taking advantage of the resulting energy savings.

Barn Doors For Living Room Windows

Sliding barn doors as window treatments bring out the living room’s rich color palette. Choose an espresso stain or midnight black paint to contrast light colored furniture and white walls. If your living room has eclectic furniture or dark colored walls, a barn door with snow white paint or a fruitwood stain is a better option.

The barn door panels easily glide on a top-mounted track to unveil the landscape outside the window. Once the panels are on both sides of the living room window, they frame the view and become standalone pieces of art.
