January 13, 2016
Dining rooms are a place for family and friends to get together in your Chicago home. Most dining rooms have windows that let in light from outside and some of the scenery. But when you want more privacy without forgoing beauty and energy efficiency, which window treatment is best?

Here are a few dining room window treatment ideas to help you pick.

Plantation shutters are a modern window treatment that would look great in your dining room. The shutter louvers are designed with elegance and function at the forefront. They give you ultimate control over light and view. Move the shutter louvers with a tilt rod to see the desired amount of view and brightness. And when the weather gets colder, shut the dining room shutters all the way for ultimate energy efficiency.

The best thing about plantation shutters? They can be custom fashioned to the actual curves and angles of your window. It doesn’t matter if the window is a octagon, arched, triangle, or circle. Dining room shutters can be engineered to fit your window perfectly. Find out more about special shaped shutters.
