If you’ve got a room that needs both horizontal and vertical treatments, you might be nervous about how best to coordinate the look. Luckily, Hunter Douglas, the leader in window fashions, has a selection of treatments that are easy to match. Speak with a trained specialist at Shutter Guy here in Charleston—we can help you find the right pair of treatments for your room!
Matching Horizontal and Vertical Window Treatments
Many Hunter Douglas product lines offer both horizontal and vertical applications for a more exact match within a room. For both applications, you can choose the same fabric, which helps the connection. For example, Duette® and Applause® honeycomb shades offer the same fabric in a vertical orientation called Vertiglide™. If you prefer a casual, natural vibe, consider Provenance® Woven Wood Shades, which also be made into Vertical Drapery. If you like the soft folds of a Roman shade, consider Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, which offer the Traversed™ with Vertiglide system. Remember that, with each of these products, the textures and lines of the vertical window coverings may differ from their horizontal applications. Also, the outside light will filter into your room differently if the fabric is turned for a vertical window or sliding glass door.
See Other Coordination Options
To see some of these in person, speak with one of our sales reps. You’ll also be able to see and operate the full-size vertical Luminette® Privacy Sheers, which coordinate with Silhouette® Window Shadings and Pirouette® Window Shadings. Both of these horizontal products include sheer fabric similar to the sheer fabric used with the vertical Luminette. You can also operate horizontal Designer Roller Shades and Designer Screen Shades, which share the same fabric as the vertical Skyline® Gliding Window Panels.
Hunter Douglas window fashions come with several different types of operating systems, the best of which is PowerView motorization. With PowerView, Hunter Douglas has outdone itself. But don’t just take our word for it—look to the experts. PowerView won the coveted Red Dot Award for 2016. The award honors design innovation and is recognized internationally. With more than 17,000 entries, Red Dot is one of the largest competitions in the world.
