At Bretz Interiors we have a lovely show room with beautiful window covering displays and sample books with every possible color and product choice of Hunter Douglas window shadings that you could imagine having. It is close to Denver and most surrounding cities within the metro area. We love our show room. However, it can be difficult to shop for window shadings with smaller samples and know what it will do to the light in a room. Hunter Douglas has done an amazing job with their sampling to best educate their clients on their products, but sometimes you just need to see products in a home to really understand how it will effect your light and privacy.
Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb Shades with Light Control
My husband and I put new window coverings in our home about a year ago and they are the best tools I have because they allow me to visual a full window and the light control that each product provides. At the time Hunter Douglas had come out with Duette Architella, a unique window shading that offers a beautifully designed cell within a cell honeycomb.
I get asked all the time what the Duette Architella Honeycomb will do to the light in a room because of the additional layer of fabric. When we put new window coverings in our home we decided to put a Duette Architella Honeycomb in the guest bedroom so I thought I’d take a few pictures to show the beautiful glowing light this shade produces within a room. The below images were taken at sunset with my cell phone. We love having this Duette Architella in this particular room because it keeps the room cool when the sunlight is intense. This room is also right above the garage and tends to get cold in the winter but the four layers of fabric this shade provides for added insulation helps keep the room warm. My toddler nephew sleeps in this room when he is over visiting and the shade cuts out enough light that he is able to take his afternoon naps but allows enough light in that I don’t feel like I’m in a cave during the day. However, if a cave during the day is what you are looking for, Duette Architella also has a room darkening option in the majority of fabrics. The room darkening shades have a Mylar inner cell that cuts light out completely.
Additionally, with children in our future we opted to go for a child safe operating system on this window shade and upgraded to the UltraGlide system. The UltraGlide operating system is cord that works as a pumping motion. The cord never lengthens and does not have any loops so we do not have to worry about a child’s head getting stuck or cords hanging on the ground. Another child safe operating system that we considered was the LiteRise option. LiteRise is a cordless operating system with a small handle on the shade to use to lift and lower the shade. Duette Honeycombs have a wide variety of operating systems to choose from making it a versatile option.
The Duette Architella is so energy efficient that you can receive up to a $500 tax credit for purchasing it! The only other window covering at this time that is eligible for this tax credit is the brand new Duette Trielle. Trielle is a cell within a cell within a cell providing up to 20% more energy efficiency than the original double cell Architella. That is six layers of fabric to provide more insulation on those hot summer days or cold winter nights!
The Duette line has recently been updated completely to add a brand new line up of colors in the most popular fabric options. And even better, there are some fabulous Hunter Douglas rebates going on right now! Learn about those rebates here: http://bretzinteriors.com/promotions/
