Before and After
Here are some before and after pictures of a job we just completed. What a transformation. This customer really wanted to block out the UV from the sun coming through her large windows and causing her wood flooring and furniture to fade. She also wanted an updated look from the draperies she had on there before. The Silhouette shades were a perfect choice for her, allowing her to still have her fantastic view (her home sits right on a river bank) and blocking out those UV rays at the same time. We motorized the upper windows to give her the ease of operating those with just a remote control. She loves them!
This has been one of the most popular posts, so I'm updating it and publishing it again. If you need help with ideas for sliding glass doors, or want to see any of these options in person, please contact us, we would love to help.
I get asked constantly from clients how to cover sliding glass doors. There are actually a lot of options...
There is the standard go-to of vertical blinds, which work really well for sliding glass doors. You can tilt the vanes as well as draw them open.
But I must admit, when my clients ask the question it is usually, "What is there to cover a sliding glass door besides the typical vertical blinds?" So... I thought I would show you all some different options.
If you want a more modern look to the vertical blind. There are the Skyline gliding panels. I must say these are really cool. They traverse back and forth, but don't tilt open like standard vertical blinds. They are available in many different fabrics and screen shades depending on…
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.
