Living Room Window Treatment Inspiration: Modern, Traditional, and Transitional

A well-designed living room is a must-have in a home. After all, the living room is where so much of life happens. It’s here that we gather and spend quality time with loved ones. Window treatments are an important component of a well-designed space and it’s important to consider your design aesthetic when choosing them. Don’t settle for function over style when you can have both at Drapery Street!

Modern Living Room Window Treatments

Modern spaces are free from visual clutter and use clean lines, natural materials, and polished metals. Modern design places an emphasis on light, so it’s especially important in these spaces to get the window treatments just right. You’ll want something that allows light in while allowing for practical considerations like glare control and privacy. The most modern window treatments use today’s state-of-the-art modernization technology to keep the light just right throughout the day. Home builders should most certainly consider pre-wiring and recessing window treatments to achieve the ultimate modern treatments.

Traditional Living Room Window Treatments

Traditional living rooms tell a family’s story through heirlooms and pay homage to the past with antiques, classic art, regal furniture, and ornate finishes. Symmetry is key in traditional living rooms and window treatments, particularly draperies, can help provide this balance. Velvets, silks, and leathers exude elegance and are perfect choices for traditional spaces. If you love patterns, go with something classic like damask, floral, stripes, or plaid.

Having a traditional sense of style does not mean living in the past! Traditional styled treatments can be paired with today’s motorization technology for a timeless look with unmatched functionality.

Transitional Living Room Window Treatments

Transitional design can be found at the intersection of traditional and contemporary. In transitional living rooms you’ll find furniture with both curved and straight lines, limited accessories, fabrics with lots of texture, and restricted color palettes. Window treatments are a great place to add interesting texture, particularly in transitional designs.
