Hunter Douglas Window Blinds have unique capabilities and options – different from shades and draperies. A blind will allow you to direct and close out light based on the angle the slat is facing. This allows you the best opportunity to control light as it enters your home.

Blind Styles

The two most popular blind styles these days are horizontal wood and Venetian blinds or vertical blinds.
Wood Blinds & Venetian Blinds – These blinds come in natural Wood tones, every shade of white possible, and just about everything in between. Slat size can vary from 1/2 inch to 2 1/2 inches wide. Remember, the wider the slat the better you can see out and the easier they are to clean.

Vertical Blinds – Vertical blinds are generally used on large windows like door walls or picture windows and one of our favorite ways to control light on these windows. Vertical blinds were very popular in the 80s and 90s. They fell off a bit in the last 20 years, however they have come back with all new benefits, including the addition of a drapery or sheer wrap around the vertical creating a soft, elegant and versatile appearance.
