Which Hunter Douglas Shade Is Right For You?

Which Hunter Douglas Shade is Right For You

Sometimes choosing the right shades for your windows can be a daunting task because there are so many options. The first step is to decide what you need from your window treatments, such as energy-efficiency, privacy, or light control. After you’ve pinpointed what role you need your window treatments to play, you can then choose a style, color, and design that goes best with your other home decor. Hunter Douglas has several types of window shades to help you achieve the look and function you want from your window treatments.

Sheers & Shadings

The ability to diffuse and control natural light is important, especially in rooms that get direct sunlight during the day. With options like Luminette®, vertical vanes of fabric allow you to control the amount of light entering a room, transforming harsh sunlight and brightness into a softer, more comfortable light. This softness helps make the room more enjoyable throughout the day. Shadings and sheers are also a great option for preserving privacy. Silhouette® shadings not only diffuse harsh sunlight, but by simply tilting the vanes you can select the amount of privacy and light control your custom shades provide.

Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb shades are the gold standard when it comes to energy-efficient window treatments. The unique honeycomb design that helps insulate your home to keep it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Honeycomb shades can assist in making a noticeable decrease in your home energy costs. Available in multiple honeycomb cell sizes, light control options, and both horizontal and vertical installation options, Duette® is a great solution for any home.

Roman Shades

Perhaps the most versatile window treatment out there, Roman shades can be as simple or elaborate as you desire. Roman shades can be created from virtually any fabric. With so many options, they offer excellent light and sound control, as well as energy efficiency. Hunter Douglas offers several collections of Roman shades including Vignette®, which is a modern take on Roman shades. Vignette® features hidden cords, keeping your windows looking neat and uncluttered.

Roller Shades

Roller shades are a simple and functional option for any window. They can be used alone or easily paired with other window treatments for a layered look. They are available in hundreds of fabric choices including patterns, colors, sheers and opaques to complement any decor. The Alustra® Collection of Roller Shades from Hunter Douglas is a great choice for light and privacy control while incorporating designer fabrics for a stylish look.
