One of my favorite products is the Silhouette. It is so versatile. It goes with any decorating style from contemporary to tradition and everywhere in between. They also work well for any room of the house.
Hunter Douglas created a whole new category of window fashions when launching Silhouette window shadings with the signature S-vane. Silhouette window shadings magically transform the look of a room by changing the harsh quality of exterior light into soft, radiant beauty.
Some of the benefits of Silhouettes are:
Light control and privacy-Silhouette window shadings assure privacy and manage light beautifully. Vanes simply tilt to the precise angle to let in the perfect amount of desired light.
Energy Savings-Nature lights any room! Daylighting efficiency is maximized by diffusing and dispersing sunlight throughout the room, which enables lights to be turned off and energy to be conserved.
UV protection-Silhouette window shadings provide unparalleled protection without compromising views. They provide 88% ultraviolet protection with vanes open and 99% with the vanes closed. Interior furnishings are shielded from direct sunlight preserving their beauty.
Excellent view through-When raised, the shade disappeared completely into the head rail, and when lowered there are no strings or cords to clutter ones view to the outside. The exclusive 4" Quartette 4" vane size is the largest vane size on the market providing an even more spectacular view.
Continuing on with even more specialty shapes and design challenges with hard to cover windows:
French doors are distinguishable because both sides open as opposed to only one. While virtually any Hunter Douglas window fashion can be outfitted for French doors, keep in mind that they are typically mounted "outside" of the opening (beyond the glass frame), which may require the use of extension brackets or spacer blocks for proper handle clearance. Regardless of which product you choose, you'll enjoy a beautiful look and greater lighting control and energy efficiency.
Cut-outs provide on opportunity to cover windows with unique architectural elements and are suggested for clearance around obstructions such as door handles, window cranks and levers on operable windows. Creating a truly customized look, many Hunter Douglas window fashions are available in a variety of cut-out shapes, including bottom side, center and even headrail cut-outs.
Every house has at least one of these design obstacles...specialty shaped windows and how to cover them. I love the look and architectural detail that uniquely shaped windows add to a home, but they can be a challenge to cover. Hunter Douglas probably has the best selection of specialty shaped options, and they are constantly striving to improve them and add more options all the time. I was at a customers home the other day that had some angle top windows and he said he had been checking around for quite some time, and Hunter Douglas was the only manufacturer that had a product that would work on his windows. There is a reason why Hunter Douglas has quite a name for themselves.
Here are some examples of specialty shaped windows that Hunter Douglas manufactures a product for. I will break it down into 2 posts. If you have any of these issues in your home that you want to find a solution for, give us a call and we would be happy to go over your options with you.
White Kitchens are all the rage. They are classic, beautiful and timeless. I love white kitchens with a pop of color, especially in a Roman Shade over a window. You can do all sorts of fabrics and patterns, make it fun and add a pop of whatever color you want. Here are some examples of a fun Roman Shade to add some fun and color to a white kitchen.
