Serving Up Dining Room Window Treatments

The Dining room is used for entertaining and enjoying meals together over stories and passing the salt. This is a gathering place and no matter what the layout is, it’s important to make sure the main course is the right atmosphere. If the dining room window treatments are being correctly executed it makes a huge difference.

How to Pick the Right Dining Room Window Treatments

It’s an obvious choice to want treatments that look nice and are stylish, but let’s talk about solutions. If there are issues you want to solve there are window coverings with the correct functionalities.

Time of day, placement in the home, or size of windows all should be taken into consideration. Take this before and after picture for example. The dining room goes from miserable glare to an inviting place to share a dish and a laugh in an instant.


Windows Worth Framing

Draperies are an amazing addition to your treatments to frame the windows. The fabric’s texture creates a softness and gentle allure that can be neutral or bold, depending on the pattern or color. If even more light control is what you’re after, try layering.

Banded Shades are a fantastic base shade to then be able to build off. They offer privacy and closed off light control all while diffusing the light.

When Glare Isn’t on the Menu

No one wants to eat a meal with the sun just flooding into your eyes. Squinting is not comfortable and should be completely eliminated with the right dining room window treatments.

A great option for floor to ceiling or large windows is Pirouette shades. The sheer fabric diffuses the light eliminating glare and can be shut for complete privacy and protect your home from the harsh UV rays.

Have Your Privacy and Light Too

Top down bottom up shades are a great option for dining room windows. This is especially true if there is a lot of foot traffic causing disturbances outside. You can have privacy while enjoying your meal but are able to let the extra light in too. 

Plantation shutters actually offer the exact same benefits as the top down bottom up shades!
