Read on for an introduction to the types of shades you will find at Hunter Douglas stores. Again, all of them come with the customization of cordlessness.
1. Roman shades. Roman shades are beautiful shades that are hung horizontally. They are cordless and stylish, adding a bit of classiness to your room. Clean and classic, these shades are unlike traditional shades in that when they are fully extended, there are no bumps. Roman shades are constructed using a variety of materials: the most popular though are wood and fabric. A huge benefit of Roman shades is that, given the wide variety of colors, shades and even patterns the shades come in, you can match them to your decor or even make them a centerpiece of your decorating style.
2. Roller shades. Like Roman shades, roller shades are cordless and can be made of wood or of fabric. If you choose the wood option, keep in mind that you can select a number of lovely shades. If you choose the fabric option be aware that it allows the flexibility of color, pattern, and texture. The cordlessness keeps the lines clean and simple and the floor beneath your windows free of obstructions that cause annoyance and possibly injury.
3. Shutters. Also cordless, shutters are typically made of wood and operate on a hinge. You shut by manually closing the shutter across the window. Shutters are truly classic, a look that spans generations. In addition, they filter out sunlight that can heat up a room unnecessarily and fade the fabrics upon couches and chairs.
4. Honeycomb shades. These shades are entirely cordless and are made of fabric that comes in a variety of colors. In addition, you can order shades that come in any shape that fits your window or door: from arches and angles, to trapezoids and circles, from those covering bay windows to those covering sliding doors and so on.
Choosing any of these beautiful shades will give you huge style advantage over traditional blinds. They add elegance and grace that is only possible here. Mini blinds definitely cannot match the style that Hunter Douglas blinds provide. In addition to beauty, these blinds provide an energy efficiency that springs from the fact that these shades keep heat inside during the winter and out during the summer.
