A proper window dressing can make ALL the difference in your living room.
First define your needs: are you the type to listen to lots of movies and want a room that bathes in the shadows? Opaque blinds could be a good option. Do you read a lot and want maximum natural light? A light curtain will do the job.
Depending on the case, take the time to shop your windows well and do not forget to measure the dimensions of your windows!
