What’s Your Decorating Goal?

Think about what you want your room to look like when you’re finished. Thinking about the finished effect will enable you to choose the right style of vertical blind or shade. For a modern, sleek style choose a vinyl or metallic blind. Our Hunter Douglas Skyline® Gliding window panels offer a unique way to cover your wide windows with large 17” panels. If you are looking for a more casual option you might like our Crosswinds® wood blinds or our Cadence® Soft verticals. If you really want to add an elegant window treatment, consider our breathtaking Luminette® Privacy Sheers featuring a soft vane with attached sheer.

How Will The Room Be Used?

Decide what your privacy and light needs are in the room you’re decorating. If you have a sunroom, you may prefer a sheer to a blind so that you can take advantage of diffused light while still protecting your furnishings from UV rays. If you’re decorating a bedroom however, you may want something with darker fabric or closer vanes to block the sun when you’re taking an afternoon nap or trying to sleep in on Saturdays.  Consider the other furnishing in the room and how they will look with your new window treatments.  Will they compliment the look or detract from it?

What’s Your Color Scheme

Once you decide the overall style décor and how much light you need, you can start thinking about your color scheme. Rethinking vertical blinds and shades gives you a multitude of color options including metallic, stains and geometric shapes and patterns.

Vertical blinds and shades are available in a wide range of colors. You can choose a neutral or a bold, bright hue. Color plays a big role in the ambiance your room creates.

Can Window Treatments Really Save Energy?

honeycomb shadesCan window treatments really save energy? Winter is quickly approaching and you may be concerned about the cost of heating your home. According to Hunter Douglas, your windows have the potential to lose up to 50% of your heating and cooling energy. So the question remains, can window treatments really save energy?

window coverings

Department Of Energy Findings

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, window treatments can save up to 25% of heat loss in the winter and 45% of heat gain in the summer. It really depends on the type of window treatment and how they are installed.   Here are a few options:

custom drapery

Custom Drapery

You can create insulation at your windows with custom drapery. You should choose a medium color drapery and add a plastic barrier lining. This will keep your windows from creating heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. You can also choose a light color backing for summer time. The light color will reflect the heat and a dark color for wintertime. The dark color will absorb heat. This will in effect help with the energy it takes to heat or cool your home and this will save you money on your utility bill. Custom drapery can be installed to hang to the floor or even pool on the floor. You can also add a valence or top treatment to start your custom drapery above the window. Adding Velcro to seal the drapery around the window will further help insulate your room.
