At The Shutter Guy serving the greater Charleston area, we want our customers to have every tool possible to find the right window treatment with the right look for their home. That’s why we’re proud to carry Hunter Douglas window fashions, which offer numerous styles, fabrics, and options to help people find the look they’ll love. Plus, you can make use of their Design Studio, which makes choosing fabrics and colors a little less daunting. Read on to learn more!
A Step-by-Step Process
“The Art of Layering at the Window” is a handy tool that our customers just love. It offers a clear, step-by-step process to follow, options for “perfect pairings,” fabric folios, and suggested combinations for various product lines. You can’t go wrong!
- Base Layer. Your first step is to select what will go directly against the window, whether that’s a blind, shade, or shutter. You can choose from options such as Designer Banded Shades, Duette® Honeycomb Shades, Provenance® Woven Wood Shades, and more. This layer is for light control and energy efficiency at the window, and you can choose solid or textured, neutral or colored materials.
- Customized Second Layer. Here’s where things get exciting because you’re choosing fabrics that add drama, depth, and style. You can select from the core Design Studio line or from the featured artist collection (right now highlighting selections from textile designer Rebecca Atwood), finding selections that will coordinate or complement what you already chose.
- Choose Side Panels or Drapery. Side panels frame the window to add dimension and beauty. Drapery can fully cover the window to provide additional privacy and light control.
Suggestions From Hunter Douglas
The experts at Hunter Douglas offer suggestions for coordinating with tone-on-tone looks for neutrals, colors, or textures. They also suggest contrasts with color or patterns, to bring out an accent color in the room, to highlight a color from a patterned undertreatment, or to add a color that you just love.
The Design Studio Offers Folio Fabrics
If you’re unsure of how to choose coordinating or complementary fabrics, have no fear—Hunter Douglas offers “folios” of fabrics that will work well together. Choose from folios titled “all about white,” “gray infinity,” “harvest comfort,” or “seaside retreat,” or look to the Featured Artist series, which is a unique offering of its own. Finally, for additional help, you can find recommended pairings in the Design Studio—you’ll get some great ideas of things that will match well together.
