Hunter Douglas Window Treatments
Some years ago, we moved to a wonderful new house that had been fitted out by the previous owners with the absolute best of everything. Every fitting was of the highest quality. The blinds? They were Hunter Douglas, of course.
The name of Hunter Douglas has been well-known since as long ago as 1946, thanks to the huge variety of window treatments produced by this established company. Their high-quality window adornments include custom treatments, blinds and shutters.
Their name has become synonymous with style and craftsmanship as their tens of thousands of repeat customers will gladly confirm.
Let's start with the many types of sheers, panels and louvers you can choose from. Hunter Douglas produces the well-known Silhouette shadings for your window which feature their own signature S-Vane, which suspends fabrics between two separate facings. There is a huge variety of fabrics to choose from and many optional extras you can select to beautify your windows. The Nantucket window shadings are hugely popular too as these use facings that block ultraviolet rays from entering your home. In fact, the light they allow into the home has a particular warm and glowing appearance. Pirouette shadings use a classical fabric shade that creates a new way of controlling the light that enters your home and the ever-popular Luminette product is a perfect way of ensuring privacy.
Also, at an affordable price, the Park Lane range of sheers can be a great help when maintaining privacy in your home and many people today choose Hunter Douglas' Skyline panels which create gliding window treatments which are perfect in both modern and traditional homes. Honeycomb shades are a popular product also as these are available in sheer and opaque fabrics - plus semi-sheer and opaque versions too. You can choose exactly which is right for your home and your needs.
