Basement Window Treatments
For many homeowners, finding the right window treatments for basement spaces can be a head scratcher. Basement windows are often small or oddly shaped, making it a challenge to know how to filter or block the light. For some people, the challenge is primarily a stylistic one. How can you improve the aesthetic of the room when the windows are small or ugly?
The good news is that, at Bloomin’ Blinds, we have window treatments that can be custom designed for whatever your basement needs.
Top Things People Want for their Basement Windows
Most of the time, choosing the right window treatments boils down to a few specific things.
- Make Windows Look Bigger
- Renovate And Add Style
- Block Light
- Help Basement Achieve a Specific Purpose
We can help you accomplish any of these. We can also provide more granular solutions if you have a very specific purpose for your basement. Check out some of our solutions for specific needs below.
Window Treatments for a Basement Office
The main challenge for a basement office is usually lighting. You will probably want to maximize natural lighting so you can work undistracted by dim surroundings. For a basement home office, we would recommend sheer shades, which can bring in more light while remaining closed. If you want to keep your treatments open while you work another simple solution would be roller shades or shutters, (both of which are also easy to clean and maintain).
Window Treatments for a Basement Movie Theater
Your main concern for a movie theater will probably be blocking out all light. Blackout shades will be your best friend for this kind of light filtering use. Blackout shades can also be motorized so you can plop on the couch and shut them automatically.
Window Coverings for a Basement Bar or Den for Entertaining
If you have a basement bar, you probably want to maintain a specific, high-end aesthetic with your window treatments. We find that natural wood blinds are a popular option to maintain a classy atmosphere. If your basement tends to be humid, faux wood blinds are a good alternative as well. One other suggestion would be roman shades, which can give off an air of luxuriousness. (Especially true when paired up with lush drapery.)
Window Treatments for a Wine Cellar
The needs for a wine cellar tend to be very simple: block out the light. Blackout blinds are the best way to prevent light from coming into a basement with wine storage.
Window Coverings for Storage Space
If your basement is just used for storage, you may be looking for the most affordable option. For simplicity and cost, nothing tends to beat out mini-blinds. However, if you want something easier to clean, we would recommend looking into roller blinds.
Window Coverings For Tight Spaces (Inside Mount Window Treatments)
If you have very limited space in your basement, you may want to mount your window treatment inside the window frame. The best options to consider would be: woven blinds, cellular shades, mini-blinds, or custom shutters.
Window Treatments for Making Windows Look Bigger
Small basement windows may seriously interfere with your plans to spruce up your basement. To make your look bigger, long hanging drapes is one of the oldest tricks in the book. Mounting them higher above the basement window tends to help with this as well.
If your windows are long enough, you may want to try plantation shutters that cover the lower half with a curtain on the upper half.
Pro Tip: If the windows are too small for this, one popular trick is to actually extend the shutter down over the wall.
Window Treatments for Maximum Privacy
If your basement is a secret escape from the outside world, you may just want to block out the windows as much as possible. Obviously, blackout blinds will take care of this handily. Another popular basement window option for privacy is cellular shades. But our personal favorite for maximizing privacy without sacrificing style would be adding roman shades mounted together with heavy drapes.
