Adding the right kind of window treatments to the replacement windows on your Tacoma, WA home can revolutionize the way it looks. But how do you dress the windows in various rooms of your house to maximize your style? These tips are here to help.

To begin, bathroom windows can be particularly tough to dress for two main reasons: bathroom windows are often small or oddly sized, and bathrooms come with a lot of moisture. Luckily, shutters provide a solution for both! They come in a wide range of sizes and stand up to the humidity that comes from showers and baths. Check out café style shutters to add a bit more privacy to your bathroom, as this type only covers the bottom portion of the window. You can also look into tier-on-tier shutters as they have panels that can be adjusted independently for even more convenience.

Living rooms come in many different shapes, sizes and styles, so it can be tough to find window treatments that work. A good place to start is your personal style and the overall feel of the room. Is it more traditional or vintage chic? Shutters would work great! Are you more into modern or minimalist designs? Look into simple blinds or shades with subtle straight lines. If you want to add a pop of color, consider adding shutters, blinds, or curtains in a bright, contrasting hue.

What about the bedroom? You need your bedroom to be a relaxing hideaway you can go to in order to escape from the stress of the world, so you need your bedroom window treatments to give you plenty of light control, lots of privacy, and also calming, appealing style. One of the easiest ways to incorporate all of these requirements into one convenient window treatment is to focus on color and texture. A solid shutter in a neutral color will give you a clean backdrop while also providing light control, while blackout shades paired with light, airy curtains help control light while also adding a relaxing appeal. If you’re adding window treatments to a child’s bedroom, definitely look into shutters as they offer include privacy, heat insulation, light control, but most importantly, unlike curtains or blinds, there are no chords hanging down which instantly eliminates hazards.

Finally, the kitchen is the heart of the home, so make sure your heart is looking good and working well with the right kind of window treatment. Shutters are excellent for use on kitchen windows as they allow in plenty of natural light but also allow for privacy control. Shutters are also durable in the face of water or food splashes, so you won’t have to worry about staining, cracking, warping or peeling. Spill on your shutters? Just wipe them clean.
