The living room is one of the most important entertaining areas in any home. But that doesn't mean you have to spend a fortune to get the perfect living room window treatments. Fauxwood blinds are a great option for those on a budget, but they are a bit heavier than wood blinds.
So if you plan to raise and lower them often, consider wood blinds as an alternative. Want a little more pizzazz for your windows? Add a decorative valance or drapes for a shot of color. If insulation is a major concern, try cell shades which gently filter natural light, protecting your fine upholstered furniture and offering privacy.
