At Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Bonita Springs, we know that shopping for the right window treatment can be confusing. That’s why we think it’s important that our customers understand the basics of window treatments—starting with terminology. That helps the entire shopping experience be a bit smoother. Read on to learn the definitions of some of the main window treatment styles, and be sure to speak with one of our representatives for more information.
Often, when people hear the term “shutters,” they think of the outdoor element. But in fact, interiors shutters are very popular and often a fantastic choice for a variety of rooms. Interior shutters are durable, elegant, modern, classic, timeless, stylish, and easy to maintain. They work well on specialty shape windows as well as traditional windows, and they can sometimes actually add value to your home. Popular lines from Hunter Douglas include Heritance® Hardwood Shutters and Palm Beach™ Polysatin shutters.
Blinds are similar to shutters in the way they work—both are controlled by tilting or by raising or lowering the product. Blinds offer great view-through while still maintaining control over light and privacy. Popular blinds from Hunter Douglas include Parkland® Wood Blinds, Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds, and Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds.
Shades come in fabric, woven woods, or sheer varieties and raise and lower to help you control light and privacy in your space. Types of shades include roller or solar shades, cellular (honeycomb) shades, Roman shades, and sheers and shadings. Popular lines from Hunter Douglas are Sonnette® Cellular Roller Shades, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, and designer banded (layered) shades.
Drapery can add an elegant sophistication to a room, even if you already have an existing window treatment. They add layers and dimension to the room and bring life through color, texture, and opacity. Be sure to check out the Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ for exclusive textiles and pairing ideas, as well as beautiful hardware and accessories to round out the look at your window.
