Media rooms are really popular here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. With the low cost of large TVs and surround sound, coupled with the widespread availability of HD and streaming media, it’s easy to turn any room into a media room! The key to an enjoyable entertainment experience at home is controlling the light that comes into the room. Here at Windows to the World, serving Wilkes-Barre and the entire Northeastern PA area, we carry a variety of window coverings that work great to control light in your media room.
Blind, Shade & Shutter Options for Your Media Room
You don’t have to sacrifice style to have functional, light-controlling media room window coverings. 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 treatments offer multiple opacity selections to choose from.
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, honeycomb shades, and privacy sheers.
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, honeycomb opaque shades, woven woods, roller shades, window panels, window shadings, privacy sheers, wood blinds with traditional routing, and more.
Blackout blinds, shades, and shutters block 100% of the light. Blackout window treatment examples include horizontal and vertical blinds and shades, honeycomb blackout shades, shutters, wood blinds with de-light feature or fabric tapes, room darkening shades with liners and more.
How to Install Window Coverings in Media Rooms
To ensure you have no light gap around the window, you should consider mounting your blinds or shades on the outside of the window frame. This will cover the entire window and keep light from seeping in. However, if you like the look of an inside mount or don’t want to cover up your molding, then you might want to consider adding drapery panels.
