Dining Room Window Treatment Tips For Houston Home

January 13, 2016
Dining rooms are a gathering place for family and friends in your Houston home. And most dining room windows let in sunlight and some of the view. But when your goal is more privacy without giving up beauty and energy efficiency, which window treatment works best in your dining room?

Here are three dining room window treatment ideas to help you pick.

Plantation Shutters For Dining Rooms In Houston

Plantation shutters are a modern dining room window treatment. Their louvers are designed with beauty and function as the focus. They allow you absolute control of brightness and the view. Adjust the shutter louvers with a tilt rod to see as much of the light and view as you want. And when the temperatures cool outside, shut these dining room shutters properly for energy efficiency.

The best thing about plantation shutters is that they can be custom made to the actual curves and angles of the window in your dining room. It doesn’t matter if the window is a circle, octagon, arched, or triangle. Dining room shutters can be engineered to match your window just right. Learn more about special shaped shutters.

Toss a salad with family in front of your choice of Polywood® or Ovation® wood shutters. Polywood shutters are built from a patented synthetic material that won’t ever warp. Better yet, Polywood is the best window treatment for energy efficiency. And that’s key when it comes to windows in the dining room. Ovation shutters are made from 100% hardwood and come in 28 stains to go with your color scheme.
