Dining Room Window Treatment Tips For Austin Home

January 13, 2016
The dining room is a place for family and friends to get together in your Austin house. And most dining room windows bring in natural light and the view. But when your goal is more privacy without forgoing energy efficiency and beauty, what’s the best window treatment?

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

Plantation Shutters For Dining Rooms In Austin

Plantation shutters are a contemporary window treatment for your dining room. Their louvers are engineered with function and beauty at the forefront. They give you ultimate control over brightness and the view. Control the shutter louvers with a tilt rod to bring in just the right amount of light and view. And when the temperatures cool outside, shut the dining room shutters properly for ultimate energy efficiency.

The best thing about plantation shutters is that they can be custom made to the exact curves and angles of your dining room window. It doesn’t matter if the window is a circle, octagon, arched, or triangle. Dining room shutters can be engineered to complement your window seamlessly. Read more on special shaped shutters.

Break bread with friends in front of your choice of Polywood® or Ovation® wood shutters. Polywood shutters are made from a patented synthetic material that will never crack. Did we mention? Polywood is the highest rated window treatment for energy efficiency. And that’s important when considering covering big dining room windows. Ovation shutters are fashioned from hardwood and can be customized with 28 stains to complement your color scheme.

Shades For Dining Rooms In Austin

Shades are a classic dining room window treatment. They’re straightforward to install and use. And you can select between different patterns and fabrics to match the shades to the decor in your dining room.

However, these color options may come at the cost of brightness and climate control. The shades are made from a fabric that may not be able to block out the light effectively. And the delicate material won’t block the impact of the natural elements.
