Options for Hunter Douglas Blinds

You have made the right choice by deciding to create custom Hunter Douglas blinds for your windows. Now you need to decide what they will be made of, what color they will be, how you want them installed, and if you want to add any decorative touches. That’s a lot of decisions, but they’ll be easy to make with the help of the design experts at Feather Your Nest in Warsaw, Virginia.

Materials for Your Blinds

Both vertical blinds and horizontal blinds from Hunter Douglas are available in a variety of materials.

Wood – Wood blinds are available in both vertical and horizontal orientations. Parkland® Classics™ and Parkland Scenic horizontal blinds are made of basswood from managed forests to reduce the effect of harvesting on the environment. Other Hunter Douglas wood blinds are made of ash and abachi, which both offer unique woodgrains.

Alternative Wood – The EverWood® line of horizontal blinds look like real wood blinds, but are able to withstand high temperatures and moisture without warping, fading or cracking, making them a good choice for enclosed porches or bathrooms. The slats can be beveled and the de-Light™ feature can be added to reduce the natural light that seeps in when the blinds are closed.

Vinyl – Vinyl is a great choice for vertical blinds because it is durable and easy to clean, making it perfect for high-traffic areas like sliding doors leading to the back yard. Cadence® vertical blinds take advantage of the rigidity of vinyl and come with softly-curved vanes that mimic the look of fabric.

Fabric – If you want actual fabric for your vertical blinds, Hunter Douglas offers cost-effective Vertical Solutions® with 3 ½ inch vanes and Somner®, which come in a wide variety of fabric colors and patterns. For a truly unique and contemporary look, try the 6-inch-wide fabric panels of Skyline® gliding window panels.

Aluminum – Hunter Douglas offers a wide range of aluminum blinds, from ½-inch horizontal Décor® and Lightlines® blinds to Somner vertical blinds. A wider 2-inch horizontal blind, Reveal® provides a clearer outside view because the slats collapse into pairs when opened.

Additional Options for Blinds

Jazz up your vertical blinds with a designer headrail. Decorative tapes are available in place of traditional cords to give your horizontal blinds a bit more personality.

All Hunter Douglas blinds can be mounted inside or outside the window frames. If you have decorative trim, opt to hang the blinds inside the window to keep it visible when the window treatments are closed. If your trim has seen better days or is non-existent, hang your blinds on the outside of the windows.

An entire article could be dedicated to the variety of colors, textures, and patterns available for vertical and horizontal blinds. Whether you want your new window fashions to blend in or make a statement, Hunter Douglas has the finish you’re looking for.
