Sometimes, our spaces can use a little refreshing - maybe our style has changed, or we’d like to update or home with the latest designs. Adding new window fashions is an easy and cost-effective way to change the look and feel of a space completely. At The Blind, Shade, and Shutter Company, we’ve been your local resource for custom Hunter Douglas window treatments since 1999. Whether you’re outfitting the windows in a single room or your whole home, our design team can help you create an aesthetic you’ll love.
Simply put, not all blinds and shades are created equal. You may think custom-made window treatments are a unessential expense, but ask yourself how often you’ll be looking at those blinds? Pre-made shades from a big box store may suffice at first, but why accept the bare minimum of quality? There’s no substitute for the luxury afforded by premium materials and construction from Hunter Douglas.
The lighting in pictures online different from that in a home. Don’t suffer from buyer’s remorse by splurging on new window coverings without knowing how they’ll look on your windows. Visit our showroom for real displays of hard window treatments or hang fabric samples of a few fabric options for curtains near the window you will be dressing. Leave the samples there for a couple days and view them at various times of the day when the natural light differs. This will give you a much more accurate idea of how a set of shades of drapes will look once installed.
How much time do you put into choosing the furniture, wall color, and accessories for a room? You should put that same amount of thought into choosing your blinds. Windows are the focal point of a room as natural light draws attention. When window treatments are a last-minute addition to a room, it can look unfinished and awkward. There are limitless options available to fit all decor schemes so take your time and choose something that you truly love. Talk with a designer to help you decide and utilize their years of experience. Our team members want you to be happy with your window treatments and will do their best to accommodate your requests.
It can be easy to get caught up on the trend train. We’re not saying your windows should harken back to the Victorian-era, but design trends change frequently. Unless you are fine with replacing your window coverings every year or two, opt for ones that will hold up to design scrutiny for many years. Hardwood window treatments are always a good choice. Heritance® Hardwood Shutters and Parkland® Wood Blinds are two examples that are always stunning and in style. Duette® Honeycomb Shades, roller shades, or roman blinds are great choices as they bear no resemblance to a specific time period and look at home in both classic and modern decor schemes.
While the visual appeal of your windows is important, it’s also essential that your chosen coverings serve the function you need. Do you need maximum light control for your bedroom windows or light-filtering coverage for a family room or kitchen? Hunter Douglas makes choosing functional window treatments for any room exceptionally easy by offering features like Duolite®. Duolite® allows you to have a light-filtering sheer shade and an opaque liner on a single roller shade.
