We know. The window fashion industry can be overwhelming. So many options. So many benefits. So many things to consider. At Window Treats here in Monmouth Beach, we strive to help our customers have the most streamlined purchase experience possible. That includes helping them understand the ins and outs of window fashions. Read on to learn the basics.
Shades raise and lower to help you control light and privacy in your space. You can find them in fabric, woven woods, or sheer varieties. Sheers provide an alternative to the firmer fabric or wood shades; they are soft and graceful and capture the beauty of light. Types of shades include sheers and shadings, honeycomb (cellular) shades, Roman shades, and roller or solar shades. Popular lines from Hunter Douglas are Sonnette® Cellular Roller Shades, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, and designer banded (layered) shades.
With blinds, you control light and privacy by tilting the slats or raising or lowering the treatment (or, if it’s a vertically oriented treatment, you traverse the slats or rotate them). With blinds, you can have great view-through while still maintaining control over light and privacy. Plus, you can enjoy the elegance that this product brings. Popular blinds from Hunter Douglas include Parkland® Wood Blinds, Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds, and Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds.
Interior shutters are durable, elegant, modern, classic, timeless, stylish, and easy to maintain. You can choose from genuine hardwood louvers or hybrid composite ones, depending on your needs, and you can find numerous paint and stain options to match your décor. Shutters work well on specialty shape windows as well as traditional windows, and they can sometimes actually add value to your home. Popular lines from Hunter Douglas include Heritance® Hardwood Shutters and Palm Beach™ Polysatin shutters.
Elegant and classic, drapery can stand alone or pair with existing window treatments to add layers and dimension to your room. Change the entire feel of a space by hanging the drapery from the ceiling to the floor or keep it simple by hanging it from the top of the window to the bottom. If the drapery hits the floor, you can puddle it or simply sweep it up; the look is yours. Drapery is alive with color, texture, and opacity options, including whether you have the fabric tailored or let it be more contemporary. Be sure to check out the Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ for exclusive textiles and pairing ideas, as well as beautiful hardware and accessories to round out the look at your window.
