Top Considerations: Light control, style

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, reclaimed wood shutters, barn doors shutters, shades, blinds

Your family’s dining room may be a formal room you use only for special occasions, or as your common family meal place. Regardless, you want a window covering that can give you light control and complement your home design and furniture to make your dining room a relaxing area.

Barn door shutters can add a nostalgic, almost romantic flavor to your dining room - all while giving you extensive control of the level of privacy and light you need. Plantation shutters have a traditional style but are also adaptable enough to go with more contemporary décor. Shades, though they don’t offer as extensive control over temperature, still allow for some light control to manage the mood of your dining room, as well as being available in an extensive variety of fashions and colors to match any décor.

Top Considerations: Style, ease of cleaning, resistance to humidity and water

Window Treatment Recommendations: Polywood plantation shutters, faux wood blinds

The kitchen is a room full of activity, from cooking meals to showing off to guests and more. Because of the many duties of your kitchen, you’ll want a window treatment that’s both versatile and resilient enough to stand up to whatever happens in the room.

Polywood plantation shutters satisfy these criteria perfectly. Not only do their neutral tones pair with almost any home design choice, but they’re also extremely moisture-resistant and a breeze to clean as well. Faux wood blinds, while somewhat less sturdy and upscale than shutters, do give you the water resistance needed in any kitchen window treatment

Destin Bedroom Window Treatments

Bedroom Window Treatments

Top Considerations: Privacy, style, light control, energy efficiency

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, blinds, shades

The first priority for any bedroom will likely be how easy it is to adjust the light and temperature in order to make it easy to rest. No window covering can match the level of control given by plantation shutters, not to mention shutters’ unparalleled ability to give complete privacy and their classic looks that enhance any décor.

Pull-down shades are also a popular bedroom choice, giving you that all-important privacy and a warm look – although they tend to diminish light rather than block it out completely like shutters. Shades are also available in a vast variety of styles and colors, making it easy to select one that coordinates with your bedroom’s colors.

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, sliding barn door shutters, blinds, shades

The family room is the spot to unwind and spend time together with your family. It’s also a room visitors will likely see the most, so your top considerations should be style and light control.

Plantation shutters give flair to your family room, and offer great temperature control and insulation to keep your room comfortable. Upscale sliding barn door shutters can star as a distinct centerpiece to your family room if you want to wow your guests.

Blinds and shades can also be great choices due to being available in a vast variety of colors and styles, making it simple to coordinate with your established decor - though they lack the same degree of light and temperature control that shutters give you.

Destin Basement Window Treatments

Basement window treatments

Top Considerations: Light control, energy efficiency, humidity resistance

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, blinds

No two basements are alike. They might vary in structure, area, how far underground they are, and more. Due to these differences, the best window covering for each basement can vary as well.

Generally, you should look for window treatments that can fit the unique shape and size of your basement windows, while being able to let in the maximum amount of light. Polywood plantation shutters check both of those boxes, in addition to handling humidity that may be an issue in some basements.

Aside from shutters, blinds are also a great choice for basements in Destin. Both faux wood and aluminum blinds feature resistance to humidity, while also fitting the most frequently-seen basement window shapes and easily matching your existing decor.

Top Considerations: Fashion, light control, energy efficiency, resilience

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, shades

Installing the right window treatments in your home office can help you stay productive and focused no matter the time of day or the conditions outside. Plantation shutters offer excellent control of temperature, light, and sound, making sure you’re able to work in a comfortable environment.

If noise canceling and energy efficiency aren’t an issue, shades are a more budget-friendly choice that can help fill your space with muted light, making it more mellow and easier to focus on your work rather than having no window covering.

Destin Sunroom Window Treatments

Sunroom window treatments

Top Considerations: Style, light control, energy efficiency, resilience

Window Treatment Recommendations: Plantation shutters, window film, shades

Sunrooms get a lot of light and are the perfect place to relax or host guests - as long as you can control the level of light and heat that come in. Plantation shutters look stunning against all the glass and are also great at keeping your sunroom at an ideal temperature with a simple adjustment of the louvers.

Combining window film with a second window covering can increase your room’s protection from heat and harmful ultraviolet rays – meaning you won’t need to worry about the possibility of your carpet, furniture, or one of a kind photos or artwork fading from light exposure. Shades offer a softer look that you can personalize to your home, but remember that their UV protection won’t be as powerful as other options.

Destin Laundry Room Window Treatments

Laundry room window treatments

Top Considerations: Budget, light control, energy efficiency, humidity resistance

Window Treatment Recommendations: Blinds, shades

Whether we like it or not, we spend a lot of hours in our laundry room every year. To take some of the stress out of laundry, make the laundry room a little cozier with window coverings that will make it comfortable, but don’t neglect the fact that laundry rooms can generate humidity and you may need to protect drying clothes from UV light.

Blinds are a great choice for Destin laundry rooms due to their lower cost and quick adjustability, making light control a snap. Faux wood blinds tend to be better compared to real wood since they can handle moisture. Shades are also a window treatment to consider, giving a soft, mellow style to your laundry room. Keep in mind though that shades usually aren’t very moisture resistant, in case you plan to do a lot of ironing or steaming.

Don’t worry about the laundry room anymore!
