Window Treatments Perfect for Decorating Your Beach House

Apr 05, 2016 by Don Watkins Category: Window Treatments 0 comments

A panoramic view of the sparking blue waters and powdery white sand right outside the window, the wonderful sea breeze and warm sun trickling into the home, and a comfortable space inside to enjoy all these – these are the ingredients to the perfect beach side retreat.

To get the first two, having a perfect location plus huge windows situated in the right areas of the home is a must. For the third one, aside from cosy furniture to adorn the home, a key to achieving it is by installing the right window treatments.

Window treatments can create a favourable atmosphere inside the home. They can also help give a home privacy, which increases the level of comfort that is experienced by the people living in it. Moreover, the right window treatment can add style to a home dressing up an otherwise bare window and adding character to the space.

So what type of window treatment can help you create the perfect beach house?

Sheer Blinds

You don’t want to completely cover the windows in your beach house as you’ll want to let the light in and get a clear view of the outside. The solution to this is sheer roller blinds.

While they give you some level of privacy and protection from the glare of the sun, it also allows you to have a glimpse of the beautiful view outside.

If you want the full view of the picturesque beachside, you can then easily roll these up. As Jennifer Davenport of Jennifer Decorates professed, “window treatments made of sheer material is the ‘quintessential look and feel’ for a coastal residence.”

Roman Shades

Another window treatment that will allow you to let as much light as possible into your house is roman shades.

As natural lighting is one of a beach house’s major feature, you should maximise this, and using roman shades as your window treatment will do the trick.

Melissah Weigall of Coastal Style also suggested that roman shades are a good option to open up the view of the outdoors. Choosing the right roman shade can also help set the mood in your beach house. It can help you create a relaxed ambience in your home by the beach.

You can even bring this relaxed atmosphere to your bathroom. Coastal Living suggests using opaque roman shades for your windows. With a clear view of nature outside, soaking in the tub would be more relaxing.

And with roman blinds, you would still get privacy when you need it.

Wooden Shutters

If you want complete privacy for your beach house’s bathroom though, you can opt for plantation shutters. Melissah of Coastal Style advised that these are great solutions for areas of the house where privacy is important. While you may want a clear view of the clear blue waters of the beach while you are in your living room or while enjoying a meal in your dining room, you may want to have total privacy in your bedroom. For this, a wooden shutter is the best option.

Aside from providing complete privacy, shutters can also make your beach house a comfortable place to be in. Coastal Style suggests that plantation shutters is another great window treatment option for a beach house as it can allow the wonderful sea breeze to flow into the house during fine weather, while it can also keep rain out during unfavourable weather.

Aside from the rain, it can even help insects out of the home. So having shutters in your beach house will help keep the house, especially the dining room, functional all-year round.

The right window treatment for your beach house can help improve not only its aesthetic value but also its level of comfort and functionality. Plus it can help set the tone in the home making your beach house a much more desirable place to be in.

With the use of these three window treatments, you can have the perfect beach house that you won’t want to ever leave.
