Great Window Treatments For Your Great Room
Many homes in the past were built with the dining room as a separate room devoted mainly for formal entertaining.
In many homes today, a separate formal dining room is not an option because of a lack of space and a more informal way of life.
A current trend is to design the dining area within the kitchen or as part of a larger living area sometimes referred to as “the great room.” The home decor challenge is what type of window treatments work well for the entire space, which may include large and small window to bring harmony to the room.
Since this is a space where family and friends gather to relax and enjoy a meal, it is important that the entire area feel warm and inviting.
The open floor plan in this space generally has an informal feel, so the window treatment should be neither too bold or too subtle.
Solid color draperies, roller shades, or roman shades with a contrasting border, braid, or fringe add interest and give the space a complete look.
Venetian blinds hung on both smaller and larger windows give a feeling of continuity and harmony which is important in such a large space.
Another idea that works well when the space is used as a kitchen, dining area, and living area, is to use the same material and color scheme in all areas but as a roller or roman shade at the kitchen window and draperies in the dining and living area.
For a unique and unforgettable combination of window treatments in this space, try Hunter Douglas Provenance Woven Wood Shades on the smaller windows in the kitchen and sheer draperies in a complimentary color and fabric on the larger windows in the living and dining area.
Not to be overlooked is the beauty and harmony shutters will bring to the great room and the benefit of added value to your home.
Window treatment combinations such as this can be endless in options and custom designed to fit your home decor and budget.
