Three Main Types of Window Treatment
Window treatments can be soft or hard. They function in different ways—opening up and down or side to side, with vanes to adjust the light, or with slats. Each offers different benefits.
- Blinds. A slatted treatment, blinds control light by directing it up or down. They work well in horizontal and vertical openings as well as in specialty shapes. To help them completely block out light, look at a feature that eliminates cord holes, such as the Hunter Douglas de-Light™ feature. You’ll be able to find this affordable window treatment numerous materials, including aluminum, vinyl, wood, faux wood, and fabric. Plus, you can choose from hundreds of colors, styles, and options to complement any room or décor style.
- Shades. A soft treatment that offers fashionable design, energy efficiency, sun protection, room-darkening features, and privacy, shades are touted for their clean, soft look. You can choose from a variety of fabrics, including man-made materials, as well as natural sustainable materials like bamboo, reeds, grasses, or even recycled ocean trash (the Hunter Douglas GreenScreen® Sea-Tex™ screen shade fabric).
- Shutters. These popular products can pair well with any décor style. They offer a classic yet modern look and, even though they are the most expensive of the three window treatment types, they can also help increase the value of your home. You can choose from a number of materials, including hardwood, faux wood, and vinyl, and you can even find numerous colors, textures, and slat options.
Different operating systems meet different needs. For example, if you’re treating a window that’s high up or that’s tucked behind something that makes it hard to reach, you might want a motorized option. As a Hunter Douglas dealer, we offer a wide variety of operating systems, including UltraGlide® (a retractable cord system that lets you raise and lower your shades with no ugly, dangling external cords), LiteRise® (a cordless system that lets you gently raise and lower your shades with slight pressure from your hand), PowerView® motorization (a wireless operating system that can be used with a PowerView® Pebble® remote or with your mobile device or tablet, even if you’re not at home), and more. Speak with a representative to see all of the operating systems in action.
