Although it is actually part of San Diego, you’d be forgiven for thinking that La Jolla, CA, is a separate community. La Jolla has its own personality and style — and nowhere is this better reflected than in its homes.

Like the area as a whole, most of the homes in La Jolla are stunning. Unfortunately, this poses a challenge for homeowners, who want to stand out from the crowd. One aspect that’s essential for creating a beautiful beach home is window treatments.

Home styles in La Jolla

Homes in La Jolla tend to fall into four categories: ranch, Spanish revival, postmodern, and split level. There are some window treatments that work well with all these architectural styles. For instance, motorized power blinds come in almost any design imaginable, suit all kinds of interiors, and fit any size of the window — even large windows where regular blinds are too heavy to operate with ease.

In other cases, however, considering architectural style will help you figure out what types of window treatments are best suited to your home.

ranch homes

Sheer curtains and drapes never fail to look fantastic in ranch homes. In La Jolla, where ranch homes tend to have expansive windows (frequently with beach views) sheer drapes are a particularly excellent choice. They are not as heavy as shades and are easy to maintain, even with the ocean breeze.

spanish revival

Homes in Spanish revival style are not unlike the ranch homes in La Jolla. As well as sheer curtains, consider window treatments like wood shutters to create an authentic feel.

postmodern architecture

Owners of postmodern homes need to find window treatments that reflect the contemporary design of their home but that also fits the often huge windows. Motorized power blinds fit these criteria perfectly, particularly when the blinds incorporate unusual materials.

split-level homes

Split-level buildings abound in La Jolla, due to the slopes. There are many split-level homes on smaller lots in places like Mount Soledad neighborhood. As virtually any window treatment works in a split-level home, you have the freedom to choose whatever you like. To keep with the beach theme, though, you light fabrics or wood shutters are often the best.
