The Correct Shades for Your Entertainment Room

Whether you have a large screen television with surround sound or you’re a big kid at heart with your favorite retro gaming systems, it’s called an entertainment room for a reason. As of July 2016, 41 percent of U.S. households owned a home theater. Unlike any other room in your home, you go there to be entertained and entertain guests. And there’s nothing more annoying than window glare or reflection during your favorite movie. You don’t want just any window treatment for your entertainment room. Your window coverings in Vero Beach should provide extensive coverage.

 

Entertaining

The type of entertainment you have will determine the type of window treatment you decide on. To get a home theater feel you’ll need to blackout all outside light. For gaming and other entertainment, you could go for softer shading, allowing the outside light to appear as though you have dim lighting fixtures. If you haven’t decided on what you’d like your entertainment to be, now would be a great time to make a list on what you’d like to accomplish. This doesn’t have to be a ‘man cave’, but a place that everyone can enjoy, relax in, and gather with friends. Another entertainment room style is that of a library which creates a peaceful, relaxing study with the right drapes and lighting.

Whatever entertainment style you choose, contact an experienced contractor for custom shutters in Vero Beach.

Drapes

For authentic movie theater ambience, drapes are a great choice. Drapes provide full-coverage and are made to keep most of the light at bay. They are available in almost any color and style. Thick drapes will get rid of most of the glare, but you’ll need to get the correct measurements for your drapes to fit appropriately.

Blackout Shades

For the ultimate theatrical experience, you’ll need to block all outside light from seeping through both sides of your window. A natural halo-like glare happens when uneven treatments are incorrectly placed. Blackout shades are a perfect custom choice for eliminating light no matter how bright it is outside.

Light-Filtering

If you want to have the home entertainment experience but enjoy some outside light, you could choose deflecting window treatments to rid the annoying glare. Honeycomb shades are a type of lighting filtering drape that allows a small amount of light through without compromising privacy. For bright and sunny days, the lightweight fabric transforms the harsh sunlight into soft, warm tones in your entertainment room.
