Although it might be tempting to leave a window untreated, in fact, the benefits of putting a covering on it can’t be denied. Custom window treatments add color, pizazz, drama, and style to the window and to a room. But more than that, they can help add a uniform look to a house—from the inside and the outside. If you are thinking about getting new window fashions for your home, contact a Windows, Walls & More consultant for more information today.
Consistency in Curb Appeal
At one time, window treatments would look completely different from the outside, presenting a mish-mashed look that made the home appear jumbled. Homeowners prefer a consistent look to improve curb appeal, and Hunter Douglas responded by offering products that do just that.
One option to consider is the Counterparts® program, which allows you to find similar and complementary fabrics in different collections across multiple product lines, including:
-Vignette® Modern Roman Shades. The Hunter Douglas Vignette Modern Roman Shade boasts consistent folds and no exposed rear cords, so the window doesn’t look cluttered. You can select different fold styles, sizes, colors, and textures and either horizontal or vertical orientation. With these shades, regardless of interior color you choose, the backing to the outside is a consistent white.
– Shutters and Wood or Faux Wood Blinds. Shutters are a popular choice and can add value to a home. To help keep costs down, you can achieve a similar look by mixing and matching shutters and wood or faux wood blinds. The look from the outside will be uniform as well.
– Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Honeycomb shades are a popular choice in window fashions because of their versatility to cover almost any type of window—they are available in horizontal as well as vertical orientations. Honeycomb comes in the largest array of colors, styles, opacities, and cell sizes, and, regardless of fabric color facing the inside, the back facing the outside is white.
Hunter Douglas offers a variety of lift systems, from standard manual operations to motorized systems. They all offer pet and child safety, and some offer more. UltraGlide® is a retractable cord system that lets you raise and lower your shades with no ugly, dangling external cords. LiteRise® is a cordless system that lets you gently raise and lower your shades with slight pressure from your hand. PowerView® motorization is a wireless operating system that can be used with a PowerView® Pebble® remote or with your mobile device or tablet, even if you’re not at home.
