At Shutter Guy here in Charleston, many of our clients ask us which type of honeycomb shade is better: Architella, Duette, or Applause. The answer isn’t exactly simple, because it varies from person to person and from home to home, depending on style preferences, functional needs, and budget. To narrow down the decision, look at the benefits of them all. Read on!
About Each Style
Whichever shade you choose, you can buy with confidence because all our honeycomb shade options are backed by the Hunter Douglas Lifetime Guarantee. Our honeycomb shades are available in a variety of styles with unique pleat sizes and a range of opacities to help you control light and privacy.
– Architella Honeycomb Shades. If you want the highest level of energy efficiency and protection from UV rays, choose Architella. The collection also offers a deeper color selection with a richer appearance and can stand up better against harsh sunlight.
– Duette Honeycomb Shades. Pick Duette honeycomb shades if you are looking for an energy-efficient window shade with a great selection of fabrics, pleat sizes and colors. Duette honeycomb shades continue to be the market leader across the nation and are perfect for specialty shaped windows.
– Applause Honeycomb Shades. Applause honeycomb shades are a great choice if you are looking for energy savings at an affordable price but still want the quality of the Hunter Douglas brand.
No matter the honeycomb shade you choose, a popular operating feature is the top-down/bottom-up operating system, which lets you move the top or bottom of the shade up or down independently. Not only does this give you more precise control over light and privacy, it also gives your room a unique and open feel.
Hunter Douglas offers a variety of lift systems, from standard manual operations to motorized systems. They all offer pet and child safety, and some offer more. UltraGlide® is a retractable cord system that lets you raise and lower your shades with no ugly, dangling external cords. LiteRise® is a cordless system that lets you gently raise and lower your shades with slight pressure from your hand. PowerView® motorization is a wireless operating system that can be used with a PowerView® Pebble® remote or with your mobile device or tablet, even if you’re not at home.
