8 Creative Window Treatment Ideas to Style Your Living Room

Living Room

A good window treatment goes a long way to elevate a living space, by adding style, privacy, and control over ambience. A living room is the heart of every home, a place you gather with your friends and family, share with your guests or enjoy during your off time. It should be beautiful, functional and provide you with the utmost comfort, and that is where your choice of shades comes into play. 

There are many different internal shade products in UAE you can choose from, and even combine, which can seem intimidating to a layman. Don’t worry. Take a deep breath and consider your requirements, then look into some of our tips and see if they would work for you. You have options!

  1. Smart Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are always the preferred choice. They provide you with a lot of control over how much light you let in and allow for both full privacy and full openness. They can also come in different colours and patterns, uplifting the whole room, without some of the upkeep hassle of having curtains. 

Easy-update roller blinds allow you to hook off and replace the fabric when needed, which allows some versatility. Smart solutions, such as motorized roller blinds come with automation and control systems that make it extremely practical, functional and convenient to navigate while looking stunning. They’re driven by a motor that is hidden from sight and are powered by an easily rechargeable battery, making it a comfortable choice. 

  1. Patterned Curtains 

A great thing about curtains is that they create a focal point in the interior decor. Your living room style can be completely revitalized just by picking curtains with beautiful or cool patterns. When choosing a pattern, you should keep in mind the furniture, floors and wall colour, as well as the overall style you’re aiming for. Sometimes a contrasting monochrome is more than enough to make a statement, other times, something like a lovely floral pattern can create a charming and chic interior your guests will instantly fall in love with. 

  1. Floor to Ceiling Curtains

If you’re going for something a bit more dramatic, floor to ceiling curtains are simply gorgeous, especially for large windows. Lovely in monochrome, they provide every space with classical elegance. 

You can even allow them to be a few inches longer for that romantic look and feel. The perfect centrepiece for your living room! 

  1. Go With a Sheer Fabric

For those who love minimalist style with open, bright spaces, sheer fabrics are a perfect fit. Especially in light and airy colours, your living room will always feel like spring and create lovely ambient lighting, while still granting you your privacy. 

This works very well in rooms with darker and heavier furniture as a contrasting element and a breath of fresh air, however, it also perfectly complements modern homes and minimalist spaces.

  1. Light-Filtering Roman Shades

Roman shades are a wonderful choice to achieve full privacy while also creating a stylish living room area. Roman shades tend to look more luxurious than regular blinds, can come with energy-saving insulation, and be more practical than curtains, especially with people with small children and pets. 

In a lovely monochrome or a classical pattern, your living room can look breathtaking. 

  1. Bamboo & Wooden Shades

What is a better way to bring natural materials and tones into your living room than by using real wood? These beautiful shades create a relaxing look and feel of being in nature. 

Bamboo shades are sheerer than regular wood and are a good choice when you’re looking to bring in more light, but both options provide good privacy while still being warm and pleasing to the eye. You can choose between light and dark wood tones, while the stains in the wood highlight the natural grain pattern with a lustrous finish. 

  1. Don’t Overlook the Curtain Rod

Most people overlook the role curtain rod plays when picking the right curtain design. Our tip is to pair plain light coloured curtains with dark curtain rods, which creates an eye-catching visual contrast.

Meanwhile, wooden curtain rods add warmth to every room, while light or cold-toned rods will provide a cool and restrained type of elegance. 

  1. Combine Blinds and Curtains

Who said you can’t do it? By combining blinds with nice roller blinds or roman shades, you have endless decor possibilities. Try a classic white or light-coloured curtain mixed with rattan blinds for a bohemian look and feel. Play with strong, contrasting colours, or mix monochrome with a pattern… the options are plenty and the results can lead to a one-of-a-kind living room decor. 

Not to mention, this provides you with so much flexibility and control over the flow of light. 


We hope some of these ideas inspired you to revamp your living room with creative interior shading solutions. UAE, especially Abu Dhabi and Dubai blinds & curtain providers have the additional expertise to advise you and take care of your decoration doubts, while also managing all the measurements, delivery, installation and more. 

Whatever you decide, we hope you enjoy your new living room window treatments that are beautiful, functional, stylish, and above all provide you with the privacy and comfort you deserve.
