Buying window treatments can be overwhelming—there are tons of choices, and you want to be sure you choose the right product for your home and lifestyle. As your local Hunter Douglas dealer serving Charleston, South Carolina, Shutter Guy can help you select the perfect window treatments to meet your needs, your décor, and your budget.
Window Treatments – Where to Start
When you start your window treatment search, you first need to know why you’re covering the windows in the first place. Determine your goals for the finished product—are you looking for light control? UV protection? Energy efficiency? Privacy control? Knowing your main needs will narrow down your search significantly.
Features to Explore in Window Treatments
Different coverings excel at different features—some excel at numerous tasks. Here are some things to look for:
- Energy efficiency and UV protection. All window treatments provide an extra layer of insulation between your home and the outside air, but some do it much better than others. Plus, some are great at protecting rooms from harmful UV rays. The Hunter Douglas line of honeycomb shades is the best on the market—be sure to check out the Duette® Architella® shades for superior energy efficiency.
- Privacy. Understand the degree of privacy you are looking for when selecting your window treatment. Don’t forget to check out how your blinds or shades will look from the inside out and also from the outside looking in. Vignette® Modern Roman Shades offer beauty at the window, and, because there are no ugly back cords, they look great from behind.
- Child and pet safety. Curious children and pets can be strangled by dangling cords, so be sure that the treatment you choose—as well as the operating system—are safe in your home. For the ultimate in safety, choose PowerView® Motorization from Hunter Douglas—you can control your treatments from anywhere, even halfway around the world!
