Dining Room Window Treatment Ideas For Washington DC Home

January 13, 2016
The dining room is the natural place where family and friends get together in your Washington DC home. Most dining rooms have windows that filter in light from outside and some of the scenery. But when you want more privacy without losing beauty and energy efficiency, which window treatment is best?

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

Plantation Shutters For Dining Rooms In Washington DC

Plantation shutters are a stylish window treatment for your dining room. The shutter louvers are manufactured with function and beauty at the forefront. They allow you maximum control over light and view. Control the shutter louvers with a tilt rod to let in just the right amount of light and view. And when the temperatures cool outside, close these dining room shutters all the way for ultimate energy efficiency.

The best thing about plantation shutters is that they can be custom fashioned to the specific curves and angles of your window. No matter what the shape of the window is: a triangle, circle, octagon, or arched. Dining room shutters can be made to fit your window seamlessly. Find out more about special shaped shutters.

Shades For Dining Rooms In Washington DC

Shades are a classic dining room window treatment. They’re simple to install and use. And you can pick between an array of fabrics and patterns so your shades match the style of your dining room.

However, your beautiful shades may come at the cost of temperature and light control. The fabric the shades are made of may not be able to block out the light well. And the material may be thin enough that it won’t deflect the effects of the heat or cold outside.
