Blinds, Shades, and Shutters
The three main categories of window fashions are blinds, shutters, and shades. They differ by whether they’re governed by slats, vanes, or panels and in their opacity, look, and feel.
- Shutters are classic, and they pair well with any décor style. The most expensive of the three window treatment types, they can also help increase the value of your home. Shutters are available in hardwood, faux wood, and vinyl as well as in an array of colors, textures, and slat options, and they provide great privacy. Hunter Douglas options include Heritance® Hardwood and NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters.
- Blinds work well in horizontal and vertical openings as well as in specialty shapes. An affordable window treatment, blinds are available in aluminum, vinyl, wood, faux wood, and fabric in hundreds of colors, styles, and options to complement any room. Blinds options from Hunter Douglas include Parkland® and EverWood®.
- Shades offer great aesthetics, energy efficiency, sun protection, room-darkening features, and privacy. They work well in horizontal and vertical openings as well as in specialty shapes, and they offer a clean, soft look. Shade fabrics range from man-made materials to natural sustainable materials like bamboo or reeds and are available in a wide selection of colors, styles, textures, and options. Hunter Douglas offers numerous shades, including Duette® Honeycomb Shades, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, and Pirouette® Window Shadings.
The lift system you choose will depend on your needs. For example, if you have young kids or pets, you might want something that’s completely cordless. Or if you’re treating a window that’s hard to reach, motorization might be the answer. As a Hunter Douglas dealer, we offer a wide variety of lift systems for our blinds and shades, and we’ll be happy to help you find the right one for your needs.
