When a home needs window coverings, there are several choices available. Curtains or drapes can be used, but they often fade in the sunlight and can hold dust and cause allergic reactions. Shades can be chosen, which be either opened or closed, but there is little in between to control light levels. And then there are wood blinds, which are durable, easy to clean and can be adjusted to allow in any degree of light. |
Blinds, such as the ones available in collections of Hunter Douglas wood blinds, come in a wide variety of colors and styles to fit any type of décor. Wood blinds also can be ordered with a high level of customization to allow more control over the level of privacy, light and the speed of closure. Depending on the needs of the user, there are many new designs that provide many more options than previous generations of wood blinds. Hunter Douglas wood blinds stand out because of their TopShield finish which makes them five times more durable than the average standard wood blind finish, as well as resistant to scratches and common household cleaning solvents. This special finish provides a smooth and consistant gloss and color.
Among the options are PowerTilt blinds. These are motorized to allow the owner to open and close them with a simple remote control. These high-tech blinds are battery powered and feature a standard satellite battery pack for an easy change of batteries. And, if there are multiple blinds in the same room, there’s no need for a stack of remote controls. One remote can be programmed to open and close all the blinds in the room. To close off incoming light as efficiently as thick curtains, there are Hunter Douglas wood blinds that offer a routeless model that doesn’t use the routing holes normally used on wood blinds, allowing a much more precise control of incoming light. This model, the de-Lite, is also known for the greater privacy it affords because there are no holes to allow any intrusions into the owner’s privacy. The design also allows for a tighter closure of the slats for even more light control. This sleek model works well in a streamlined décor, keeping the look of the windows simple. It can also work well in a more traditional décor full of patterns and colors, keeping the windows sleek so they don’t detract from the bold statements of the room.
Another way to get the efficient control of light, as well as privacy, is to use wood blinds made with a decorative cloth tape. This cloth covers cords and their route holes to keep out light when desired. But, they aren’t just functional. The cloth tape comes in a variety of colors to complement both the blinds and the décor of the room. A cloth color that contrasts with the color of the wood blinds makes a bold statement, while a matching color gives the blinds a streamlined look.
For those who dislike the look of dangline cords to open and close their blinds, there are Hunter Douglas wood blinds that are much simpler to operate. Simply giving the bottom rail of the blinds a gentle push will open the blinds. And, with a gentle pull, the blinds close again. For those with children this provides an extra measure of safety and efficiency, as the LiteRise feature has no looped cord and are simple to operate.
For any window need there is a style available. Often the wood blinds themselves can set the tone of a room. The beauty and style of the wood, the color and the type of blind used always makes a statement. Whether it’s a high-tech home, an efficient one or a home where privacy and light control is the most important factor in a window, there is a Hunter Douglas wood blind that can make all the difference.
