Blinds, shades, or shutters – which window treatment is best for you? As your local Hunter Douglas Gallery in the Ft. Myers area, we can help you decide. With our collaborative approach to design and window treatments, we’ll work with you to understand your style preferences and functionality needs. From there, we’ll show you the window covering options that will work best for you. First, let’s take a look at the basics of blinds, shades, and shutters.
Blinds are considered a standard in window coverings because of their slat construction. They come in horizontal, vertical and specialty shaped window applications. For the most part, blinds do not block out light completely due to the route holes. An affordable window treatment, blinds come in aluminum, vinyl, wood, faux wood, and fabric in hundreds of colors, styles and options to complement any room or décor style.
Shades have become more and more popular over the years. They offer fashionable design, energy efficiency, sun protection, room-darkening features, and privacy. Available in horizontal, vertical and specialty shaped window applications, shades offer a clean soft look to fit anyone’s budget. Shade fabrics range from man-made materials to natural sustainable materials like bamboo and are available in the widest selection of colors, styles, textures, and options.
Interior Window Shutters
Shutters are timeless and work well with any décor style. Considered like a piece of furniture, shutters are the most expensive of the three window treatment types. Available in hardwood, faux wood, vinyl and in an array of colors, textures and slat options, they provide the ultimate in privacy.
Lifting Systems and Window Covering Motorization
As a Hunter Douglas gallery dealer, we offer a wide variety of lifting options for our blinds and shades.
