Window Treatments for Formal Rooms

Window Treatments for Formal RoomsAre you looking for the perfect window treatments for a formal living room or dining room? Here is a look at the many window treatment options you might consider for a formal room.

Plantation shutters

There truly is no other window treatment that can match the sophistication of plantation shutters. Plantation shutters are unique in that they can be custom made to fit any window shape. This means that even large windows that feature an arch along the top—often found in formal settings—can be fitted with them. Plantation shutters are also made in a variety of materials and finishes, allowing you to coordinate your window treatments with the various woods and finishes you’ll find in your formal living room or dining room. You’ll find ones made from faux wood, basswood, alder, cherry, oak, walnut, mahogany, and more. Faux wood shutters can just about mimic the look of real wood, but nothing can truly match the luxury and sophistication that real wood shutters offer. So if you’re looking to give a formal room in your home an added touch of sophistication, real wood shutters might be the way to go.

Wood or faux wood blinds

For a formal living room or dining room that contains rectangular windows, blinds are another great option. Wood and faux wood are the best options here for a formal setting since they are inherently more elegant than aluminum and vinyl. And as with shutters, real wood has that sophisticated edge that faux wood gets close to but can’t quite duplicate.

One plus with installing blinds in a formal room is that blinds pair especially well with curtains. So if the formal room you have in mind features long, elegant curtains framing your windows, then blinds might be the perfect option for you.

Roman shades

In the world of window shades, Roman shades are probably the most elegant. Roman shades can truly stand on their own as a window treatment in a formal room, and you’ll find them in a variety of colors and fabrics. Rich colors like wine red, mustard yellow, and olive green look the most luxurious.

Roller shades

Roller shades can look incredibly luxurious as well, especially in a thick fabric and rich color. One plus that roller shades share with blinds is that they can easily be paired with curtains for an extra sophisticated look.
