What Window Treatment Is Right for You?
Not all window treatments offer the same level of privacy or light control or other options, and in fact, the way they operate can be pretty different, so you need to understand the differences. Here are the basic types:
- Shades are considered “lifters.” They raise or lower, providing either full view-through to the outside or privacy. Shades come in the largest color palette available in all of the window treatment categories, and they offer the full range of opacities, from light-filtering to blackout. The Hunter Douglas shade collection includes Honeycomb or Cellular Shades, Roller or Screen Shades, Roller or Screen Shades, Roman Shades, and Woven Wood Shades.
- Blinds are considered “tilters.” They can be lifted, but for the most part, just the slats are usually tilted open or closed, providing the right amount of light and privacy for the room. They add a level of interest at the window and come in aluminum, wood, and vinyl, as well as a variety of paint stains and slat sizes. The Hunter Douglas blind collection includes Wood, Faux Wood, Aluminum, and Poly Blinds.
- Shutters are a different animal but are considered “tilters” too. The louvers can tilt open or closed, and the panels can swing open for full view-through. But mostly shutters are considered fine furniture for your windows and add value to your home. They are available in wood, faux wood, and vinyl materials in a variety of paints, stains, and louver sizes.
