Living in Texas, it’s hard not to think about the grueling 100 degree summers and year-round warm weather we experience. When selecting the best window treatments for the living room, we consider the style, the amount of natural light let in, and potential energy savings  – our goal is to select a window treatment that allows you to enjoy the view, while still protecting your home during the hottest times of the day. 

The Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades is one of the best window treatments for living rooms because they’re extremely energy-efficient and allow for optimal temperature regulation. These shades provide a smart and stylish solution that is just as beautiful as it is beneficial. With this treatment option, you are able to choose from a range of pleat sizes, and the latest trending textures and colors. These shades can also be ordered with top-down/bottom-up functionality, giving you the ability to allow as much natural light in as you want, while also creating a private area for you and your family.


Modern Style

A living room should be an inviting space where the family relaxes together at the end of the day, and where guests are welcomed into the home and entertained. With a modern style on a traditional window treatment, the Hunter Douglas Vignette® Modern Roman Shades is one of the best options for living rooms. They give a soft, decorative element to the space and are also able to fold or roll up to achieve the uncovered window effect. The newest feature, Vignette Duolite, allows two opacities – such as light-filtering or sheer fabrics with a separate room darkening lining that rolls down independently to allow for maximum efficiency and glare reduction.

Even better, these fabrics are also available by the yard, offering you the option to tie the room together with decorative touches, such as pillows, upholstery or even decorative drapery panels for the ultimate luxurious effect. 


Maximize View & Privacy
