At Treasure Coast Window Fashions here in Hobe Sound, we know that first-time shoppers of window fashions can easily get overwhelmed. There’s all the terminology and the styles and the options. That’s why we like to help potential customers understand window treatment basics, so they can start to eliminate things they don’t like and focus on the things they do. If you’re new to window treatments, read on to get start on the basics.
Standard Types of Treatments
No matter where you get your window fashions, you’ll choose from standard types. Each has benefits, and once you’ve seen a few in action, you’ll be able to determine which benefits fit your needs the most. Here are the main types of treatments you’ll come across, as well as some of the options from Hunter Douglas:
- Blinds. Blinds control light and privacy by tilting or raising or lowering, and they offer great view-through and elegance. Popular blinds from Hunter Douglas include Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds, Parkland® Wood Blinds, and Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds.
- Shutters. Interior shutters are made from genuine hardwood or hybrid composite; either offers great benefits depending on your needs. Plus, you can choose from many paint and stain options to match your décor. Shutters are durable, elegant, modern, classic, timeless, stylish, and easy to maintain. Popular lines from Hunter Douglas include Heritance® Hardwood Shutters and Palm Beach™ Polysatin shutters.
- Shades. Shades are made of a variety of materials, including fabric, woven woods, and sheers. You raise or lower them to control light and privacy in your space. Types of shades include sheers and shadings, honeycomb shades, Roman shades, and roller or solar shades. Popular lines from Hunter Douglas are designer banded (layered) shades, Sonnette® Cellular Roller Shades, and Vignette® Modern Roman Shades.
Drapery as an Add-On or Standalone
Elegant and classic, drapery can stand alone or pair with existing window treatments to add layers and dimension to your room. The Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ offers an exclusive fabric collection that will let you coordinate your look or mix fabric patterns and textures for an eye-catching experience for the space. Plus, you can find custom hardware and accessories, as well as complementary valances and pillows, to fully round out the theme of the room and make your window exclusively your own style.
