Many of us have little color in our homes are colors that might not complement each other. To create a unified look in a room, start with the floor. Chose a neutral color, such as a soft off-white, a light beige, or tan. Then, paint the walls a restful gray-green and select window coverings, such as the Hunter Douglas Pirouette® window shadings to match the walls. These selections will visually expand the space and create a blend of color throughout a room.
Let’s face it, bare windows are rarely the best choice when decorating a room. Window treatments, whether pleated, puddled, or plain, add softness to the hard edges of a room. In terms of common sense, they add privacy and light control. They also can help conceal a room’s flaws or emphasize its charms. To see some great options in window treatments for your home, talk with a trained consultant at Blinds & Designs serving San Francisco and Tiburon today. [Read more…]

My husband and I are in the process of updating our window coverings in our home. We are in a pretty neat situation where we only have one window per room in our house so we are ordering several types of window coverings. The one we are most excited about is the NewStyle® hybrid shutter we are putting in our master bedroom.
I used to be a very heavy sleeper, but in the past few years I wake up at everything and anything. And light is one of my worst enemies while sleeping. We currently have these horrible vertical blinds in our house and we can’t open windows because they rattle. Light from the street lamp behind our house also seems to find its way into our room, and of course, right into my eyes at night. So, I’m incredibly excited to have something in our bedroom that will allow me to open my window without obnoxious noise, while still keeping light out of the room.
The NewStyle® hybrid shutters are very neat. These shutters combine the great style of wood with the strength, stability, and straightness of advanced modern-day materials. This is also an affordable alternative to all wood shutters while still providing the elegance of quality shutters.
The shutters have two options on tilt bars. You have the classic front tilt bar which you will see in the middle of the front of the shutter. But they have also come out with a back tilt bar (seen below) that hides the tilt bar in the back of the shutter to give you more view through of your window.
