Howard’s Draperies offers Hunter Douglas Horizontal and Vertical Blinds in a variety of styles, colors and materials. Choosing a custom blind is easy with the help of our design team. Whether you are interested in wood blinds, faux wood blinds, fabric blinds or aluminum blinds you will love our selection and the service we offer. Here are a few of the options you have to choose from: 

Horizontal Blinds 

With over 15 styles to choose from, finding horizontal blinds is easy. We have a variety of genuine hardwood blinds made from basswood and Abachi wood. Wire-brushed wood blinds offer even more texture and style. Our wood blinds are available in a variety of stain and paint colors to match your existing woodwork or cabinetry. Alternative wood blinds are perfect for areas that may have more traffic or in rooms that may be more humid or hot. Faux wood blinds come in 3 styles with textures to mimic wood and all the stain and neutral colors you need. We also carry a variety of metal blinds in wide range of colors and slat sizes. Reveal® with MagnaView® aluminum blinds provide twice the view-through as traditional 2” blinds. For larger windows, our 2” Macro blinds are a perfect choice. For added style, you can choose our Natural Elements™ blinds that offer aluminum slats with real wood headrail, bottom rail, tassels and tilt wand. Many of our blinds come with de-light®, a feature that eliminates cord holes and the light they allow into the room. Our horizontal blinds are designed with slats that fit tightly for better privacy and light control.

Vertical Blinds 

Vertical blinds come in wood, vinyl, fabric and metal. Choose from a multitude of colors, patterns and textures. Vertical blinds make a stunning statement on large windows and sliding glass doors. They also compliment tall narrow windows. Vertical blinds can easily be used in any décor from elegant to casual. Soft vanes like those on our Cadence® Soft Vertical Blinds feature a look that resembles soft drapery. For a more dramatic look, our Skyline® Gliding Window Panels are vertical blinds that boast a large panel vane from 11 ½” to 17 inches. These vertical blinds look amazing on large walls of windows and can be used as a room divider. Many of our vertical blinds have matching horizontal blinds for areas of your home with multiple window sizes.

Quality Blinds and Operating Systems

Hunter Douglas blinds are designed to be durable and work better than the blinds we grew up with. They are more flexible too so you don’t have to worry about aluminum blinds bending or denting out of shape. Modern lifting systems are designed to work properly with no dangling cords.  Wands, loop chains and retractable cords make our blinds child and pet safe. We also have motorized blinds that open at the touch of a button allowing your blinds to glide open or the slats to tilt to the desired position. PowerView® Motorization also allows you to open and close your vertical blinds with your smart device. Our motorized blinds work with most home automation systems for even more ease.
