Benefits of Custom Shades

The Many Benefits of Hunter Douglas Shades

Window shades from Hunter Douglas offer an attractive, modern and functional solution for window coverings in any home. From modern roman shades, to honeycomb and roller shades and even woven wood shades, Hunter Douglas has a window covering solution for every window. 

Light Control & Privacy

Light control is probably the most important factor to consider when choosing a window shade. If you have a window that receives direct sunlight for long periods of time, especially in the afternoon, you might want to consider a shading that has the ability to diffuse natural light and make spending time in that room more enjoyable. A good example of this would be Silhouette® shades. With adjustable vanes of fabric, you have complete control over both the amount of light entering the room and your desired level of privacy. Another effective solution from Hunter Douglas is Vignette® Modern Roman Shades. With nearly infinite fabric and design choices, Vignette® can be customized to suit any needs. By choosing an opaque fabric, these roman shades can be made to filter light or block it out completely. Hunter Douglas custom shades are made with your specific window in mind and your home’s unique design needs. 

Privacy is always an important consideration. A unique feature offered by Hunter Douglas is the Top Down/Bottom Up option available on many collections of shades. This feature allows you to keep the bottom half of the window covered for maximum privacy while leaving the top half open for natural light to shine through. 

Energy Efficiency

Hunter Douglas has several options for window shades that allow you to be good to the planet as well as help you cut back on home energy costs. Duette® is the original collection of honeycomb shades. Available in double and triple layers of cells, air from the window becomes trapped in the cell layers, keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.


When it comes to the function of a window treatment, everyone’s needs are different. That’s why Hunter Douglas offers many different options for operating and lifting systems. A great example of function is their latest innovation, PowerView® Motorization, which allows you to control your window treatments from the touch of a button, at home or away, adding ease and convenience to your life.


If you have small children or pets, you are aware of the risks attributed to some window coverings with cords.  Hunter Douglas understands this and provides standard and optional safety features on all of its window coverings that can eliminate the safety hazards associated with other pull-cord designs. It’s always important to know all of your options so you can confidently choose the right window coverings.
