Most any room in your home can be turned into a media room. With lower costs on large television sets and instant access to HD programming and streaming media, creating that theater environment in your home has become more affordable than ever before. One key to your long-term satisfaction with your media room is how well light is controlled in the room. The right window coverings are a must! Here at Window Treats serving the Teaneck NJ area, we carry a variety of window coverings that work great to control light in your media room.
Covering Media Room Windows
If you’re using your family room for entertainment, your big windows might let in too much light. This is when window treatments take center stage. A media room needs light control to minimize glare and create that movie theater feel. Location and exposure of your room, as well as the effect you are trying to achieve, will determine which product and fabric selection will best achieve your goals. Many window treatment product categories offer multiple opacity selections to choose from.
Blackout blinds, shades, and shutters block 100% of the light. Blackout window treatment examples include horizontal and vertical blinds and shades, Duette® Honeycomb blackout shades, shutters, wood blinds with de-light feature or fabric tapes, room darkening shades with liners and more.
Semi-opaque blinds or shades are room darkening. They provide a softer appearance with a “halo” of light, but are effective at filtering light. Room darkening window treatment examples include horizontal and vertical blinds and shades, Duette® Honeycomb opaque shades, woven woods, roller shades, Skyline® Gliding Panels, Pirouette® Window Shadings, Luminette® Privacy Sheers and Modern Draperies, wood blinds with traditional routing, and more.
Semi-sheer blinds or shades are light-filtering. They provide a light and airy ambiance. When the media room is not in use, they allow light to enter the room. If you want total darkness, you may want to consider adding drapes. Light-filtering window treatment examples include horizontal and vertical blinds and shades, solar screen shades, woven woods, Duette® honeycomb shades, Silhouette® Privacy Sheers, Luminette® Privacy Sheers and more.
Automate Media Room Window Coverings
Almost any blind or shade can be motorized to give you the ability to control the amount of light from your window treatments by remote control. Many media rooms have lighting and entertainment modules controlled by a phone or tablet app. This can be true of your window treatments, too, using the Hunter Douglas Platinum App™.
