  • Sheers and Shadings – There are a variety of types of sheers and shadings available that offer different benefits. The Luminette® shades have vertical fabric vanes that can rotate up to 180-degrees, making these shades an ideal choice for wide windows or sliding doors. The soft, fabric vanes of the Silhouette® shades give the illusion that the vanes are floating between two sheer fabric sheets. The vanes can be adjusted to vary the amount of light or privacy required. Similarly, the Pirouette® shades consist of fabric vanes attached to a single sheer backing, which gives a modern appearance when fully closed and a classic Roman shade appearance when fully open. Finally, the Nantucket™ Shadings has wide 3-inch fabric vanes between two sheer sheets of fabric for a modern look. All Hunter Douglas Sheers and Shadings are available in many different fabrics to match any room’s décor.

  • Honeycomb Shades ­– For increased energy efficiency, the Honeycomb Shades can help prevent up to 50% of the home’s heating and cooling energy that can be lost through the windows. The innovative design consists of cellular honeycomb shapes that trap small pockets of air to keep the home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Double honeycomb, or even triple honeycomb, shades are also available for increased energy savings. As an added bonus, the air pockets also reduce outside noise. Honeycomb shades can be equipped with the Top-Down/Bottom-Up feature for increased privacy, while maintaining light filtration.

  • Roman Shades – Providing an elegant, yet modern, look in your home, Roman Shades are crafted with folds of fabric ranging in size from four inches to six inches wide. These versatile shades are available in a variety of fabrics and colors, which can provide various shades of light filtering and room darkening. The different types of fabrics also provide sound reduction of outside noises.

  • Roller Shades – For a clean, uncluttered style, look no further than Roller Shades. Roller Shades are a versatile option that can be made out of a variety of fabrics, ranging from high performance solar screens to simple fabric shades. The head rail can also be customized to conceal the fabric for a clean look. Pairing them with curtains or sheers for a modern, sophisticated look can spice these shades up.

  • Woven Woods - Last, but certainly not least, woven wood shades are a great customizable window treatment option. Woven woods can be designed with additional linings for increased light control and insulation. They can also be customized with fabric bandings, valances, or even roman or roller styles, making woven woods a versatile option!
