Finding the Perfect Hunter Douglas Shades for You

When it comes to decorating a home, not everyone has the same taste in window treatments. At Howard’s Draperies, we understand that style can vary from person to person, and we offer custom shades to suit every customer’s needs. Homeowners will no longer have to settle for basic blinds that don’t complement their home’s décor. With Hunter Douglas, you can create custom shades that suit you perfectly, but you must first decide which type of shades fit your requirements.

Sheers soften the amount of sunlight allowed in by diffusing natural light, while also providing UV protection. Howard’s draperies offers several styles of Hunter Douglas sheers to cater to a variety of needs. Silhouette® uses fabric vanes between two sheer panels. Horizontal vanes can be tilted to control the amount of light that shines through. By protecting your furniture from UV rays, these shades will save you money by keeping you from having to replace furniture that has faded or warped. The Luminette® style is best-suited for sliding glass doors and wider windows because it has vertical vanes with a sheer panel that can be customized with textured options or fabric that more resembles drapery. If you want to use less artificial light in your home, sheers are a great option because they allow you to better use the natural light that enters your home.

Honeycomb Shades or Cellular Shades are the most energy-efficient option available. With these types of shades, you can choose fabrics that control the amount of light let in, while also being able to choose from hundreds of textures and colors. Duette® blinds feature either single or double honeycomb shades, with varying cell sizes and either horizontal or vertical alignment. If you are looking for a custom shade that provides energy savings in the winter and summer, Duette® Architella® is the perfect choice, because the honeycomb shape traps air to keep your home from losing heat in the winter and cool air in the summer. Cellular shades can be customized with vibrant colors or bold patterns to add spice to any room.

Roman Shades are a great option if you are looking for folded fabric treatments. Our Vignette® line can be customized with many different fold styles and sizes, with either vertical or horizontal orientation. The Alustra® Collection of Vignette® features the added option of luxurious fabrics and unique textures. Roman shades are an elegant alternative to traditional blinds, because they mimic the softness of drapery, while also offering the light-filtering benefits of blinds.

Roller Shades are perfect for those desiring a classic, elegant appearance that will flatter any room. Alustra® Collection of Roller Shades uses blends of fibers to filter light. Designer Screen Shades have excellent UV protection, keeping your floors and furniture in great condition. Designer Roller Shades have hundreds of fabric options, so you can choose something that fits your style.

Woven Woods will satisfy those looking for a natural, comforting presence. Provenance® utilizes natural materials in this hand-woven window treatment. The Alustra® Collection of Woven Textures® is an inspired design that uses a rare fiber to filter light.  Giving your home an earthy feel is easy with Hunter Douglas woven woods.
