Help me with window treatment for pool room

Adam CraigJanuary 9, 2013
This is a front room with a street view so night time privacy is necessary.

Just got the pool table and painted the room.

Now I need some help with window treatment. I was thinking about 5 2" wood blinds similar color as the trim.

Any thoughts on this? Budget is in play so please no barn door suggestions. :)

I would do roman shades in a beige fabric close to your pool table felt.

I think wood blinds, unless light ones, would be too dark...I would go for a light shade like mmilos suggested.

Really? Like an light oak? I was thinking matching color with trim would blend well

I'd find some fun fabric that brings the red and beige together and make curtains for each side of the window and use a thick wood curtain rod that matches the window trim. Then I'd put bamboo roman shades up to give you privacy at night.

Adam, I agree with your instincts. This is a pool room so no need to brighten it up - go with the mood and the darker 2" blinds to match the trim. A lighter stain would look like a mistake. I do agree with Katelyn, tho, that a couple floor to ceiling drape panels on either end of the window would be cool.

In my response above, I am assuming there will be a light fixture over the pool table.

Thanks PH -

There will be a light over the table. I am going for a jazz bar look for this room.

Adam, do you have the light picked out? Any plans for what you will put on the walls? That may affect the answer too.

Adam, I see nothing wrong with your idea. If budget stretched to it, maybe add an upholstered cornice, and then some drapery panels (stationary) would introduce more color/pattern and sound absorption.

I think Shutters would look absolutely amazing in those windows . I sell Shutters that would match your existing frame colour.
