Types of Shades

With so many shades to choose from, deciding on one treatment for your windows can be a challenge. Not only are there countless designs and colors for each line, but each Hunter Douglas shade also offers different benefits for your home. The friendly staff at PSI Window Coverings can help you select the perfect shades while sorting through the various options, but before selecting your treatments, try to pin point which one will be the most beneficial to you.

Roman Shades

If you want window treatments that will stand out and add a sense of sophistication to your home, Roman shades are the perfect choice. These shades boast elegant folds of fabric that drape your windows with a fashionable treatment. For a variation in fold sizes, Vignette® Roman shades offer 4” or 6” folds, allowing you to select the look you desire. Due to their overlapping fabric design, Roman shades not only offer thick fabrics for optimum privacy and excellent UV protection, but thin or sheer fabrics are also available as well, for example Solera® shades.

However, the thicker fabric does offer better protection against harmful sunlight and helps to absorb exterior sound even better. The Alustra® Collection of Vignette® is a great choice if you want to upgrade to fashionable designer fabrics and textures for your Roman shades, or check out Design Studio™ if you’re looking for vivid colors or printed designs to spice up your home’s interior.

Honeycomb Shades

When it comes to a window treatment that is trendy but offers the benefits of saving energy costs, the Hunter Douglas line of Honeycomb shades fulfills both. These shades are visually appealing with a calm yet stylish construction of cellular designed fabric that is fashionable but also works to trap air or heat inside your home. Much like Roman shades, the thicker fabric chosen for Honeycomb shades will aid in their ability to block sunlight and sound, and with their triple cell technology available with Applause®, you can upgrade to an even more energy efficient treatment. If you’re still looking to make a bold statement without sacrificing the benefits of these shades, the Pleated Honeycomb line offers modern patterns and bold colors to fit your needs. Luckily, Honeycomb shades can also be paired with several Hunter Douglas operating systems, such as Vertiglide™ for covering those large windows or sliding doors, as well as their Top-Down/Bottom-Up system for unique yet effective privacy and light control.

Roller Shades

If you want to upgrade your window treatments to make them more practical for everyday use, selecting a Roller shade may be your best option. Designed to lift with the touch of a hand while being concealed in stylish hardware, these shades create a modern and sleek appearance for your window. Although Roller shades are simple in design, they don’t lack in style, as they offer many colorful choices from dark to bold and bright along with modern prints. Designer Roller shades from Hunter Douglas can colorfully improve your home, while The Alustra® Collection of Roller Shades maintain a sophisticated appearance with woven textures. You can even customize the Hunter Douglas Roller shades with bottom treatments and headrail covers to amplify your windows treatments.

Woven Wood Shades

Fabric shades aren’t the only option when it comes to covering your windows, and Hunter Douglas proves this with their Woven Wood line of shades. Constructed with woods and reeds for a durable product, these shades also give your home a casual and comfortable style with neutral color tones and a natural appearance. These shades are far from bland, however, and can be easily customized with a valance or edge banding that fits your personal style. For those who desire the look of a woven wood shade with a little more style, they are available in a Roman shade and roller shades as well as vertical orientation if needed.
