Dining rooms are a gathering place for family and friends in your home. Most dining rooms have windows that bring in natural light and some of the view. But when you want more privacy without sacrificing beauty and energy efficiency, which window treatment is best?

Here are some dining room window treatment ideas to help you decide.

Plantation Shutters For Dining Rooms

Plantation shutters are the modern window treatment for your dining room. Their louvers are designed with beauty and function in mind. They allow you ultimate control of light and view. Adjust the shutter louvers with a tilt rod to let in as much of the light and view as you want. And during the colder winter months, close the dining room shutters completely for maximum energy efficiency.

The best thing about plantation shutters is that they can be custom made to the exact shape of your dining room window. It doesn’t matter if the window is a circle, octagon, arched, or triangle. Dining room shutters can be fitted to complement your window perfectly.

Set the table for dinner with friends in front of your choice of Polywood® or Ovation® wood shutters. Polywood shutters are made from a patented synthetic wood that’s guaranteed to never warp. Not to mention, Polywood is the most energy efficient window treatment. And that’s exactly what you need for big dining room windows. Ovation shutters are made from solid hardwood and can be customized with 28 stains to match your decor.

Sliding Barn Doors For Dining Room Windows

One of the hottest new trends in home decor is sliding barn doors. And now you can have them on your dining room windows!

If your dining room windows have space on either side, sliding barn doors are the fashion statement for you. When closed, they are a masterpiece of fine craftsmanship. When opened, sliding barn door shutters frame the view outside your dining room window beautifully. And with all the hardware options available, you can match your barn door shutters to the style of your dining room.

Blinds For Dining Rooms

Blinds might be what you’re used to seeing on dining room windows. They’re easy to install and use. And their thin horizontal slats cover rectangular windows. Choose between metal, hardwood, and faux wood blinds for a dining room window treatment.

Keep in mind that blinds cannot be custom made to fit unique-shaped dining room windows. If the window is circular or octagonal, the blinds may hide the beautiful curves and corners you love.

Shades For Dining Rooms

Shades are another familiar dining room window treatment. They’re easy to use and install. And you can choose between different fabrics and patterns to match the shades to the style of your dining room.

But this customization may come at the price of light and temperature control. The fabric the shades are made of may not be able to block out the light effectively. And the material may be thin enough that it won’t block the effects of the heat or cold outside.
