Especially in bedrooms and media rooms, customers at Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Bonita Springs are looking to go as dark as possible. That’s why it’s great that Hunter Douglas, the leader in the window fashions industry, offers numerous options. Read on to learn about a few of them, and be sure to contact one of our specialists for ideas for your particular situation.
Getting to glare reduction or sleepable darkness means blocking light from entering the room. Anything covering the window will block some light, but some window treatments do it better than others, in large part due to fabric type and color. Sheer fabrics filter light, semi-opaque offer some privacy protection and some filtering, and opaques block the most incoming light. Be aware, however, that opaques don’t completely block light, so you’ll want to address some other things. Consider mounting the treatment outside of the window frame instead of inside it or adding drapery or side panels to help cover light gaps. You can also add a room-darkening liner, available on most Hunter Douglas shades; the liner can be sewn onto the shade or you can have the option of letting it operate independently..
Hunter Douglas Products to Explore
Your best choice for room-darkening is a more solid shade. Vignette® Modern Roman Shades offer luxurious folds that help reduce incoming light. You can also look to roller shades, which work well, especially if you choose a specific room-darkening fabric. Finally, cellular (or honeycomb) shades, such as Duette® Honeycomb Shades, give you the added benefit of insulating the window, helping to keep your energy costs down, even when it’s very hot outside. Pair it with the Duette® LightLock™ system, which absorbs light and prevents it from entering the room for even better darkness.
Lift Systems Are Important Too
One of the most overlooked options during the purchase of the window treatment is the lift system. If you are covering high and hard-to-reach windows, consider PowerView® Automation, which is a fully motorized system that operates via remote, an app on your phone or tablet, or through your smart-home system. If you have children or small pets or just don’t like the look of cords, consider LiteRise®. We have a wide variety of lift system choices that are great for room-darkening treatments; speak with one of our consultants about all the options!
