Types of Hunter Douglas Blinds
When it comes to window treatments, blinds are one of the most versatile types available. They come in a variety of materials, colors, and patterns, can be horizontal or vertical, and offer several light control and privacy options. Below is a brief overview of the different types available, which will be helpful if you are considering blinds in Marco Island, Florida.
The Options in Horizontal Blinds Are Endless
Wood Blinds – Wood blinds provide subtle texture to a window with their beautiful woodgrain. Use a stain for a natural look or have them painted in a variety of colors to blend with your woodwork or complement your décor. Parkland® blinds by Hunter Douglas are made of basswood, ash, or abachi and come in a variety of slat sizes. Add a wood headrail to complete the look or pair them with a fabric valance or draperies for a softer look.
Faux Wood Blinds – Natural wood is beautiful, but can be damaged by heat or moisture, making it a less-than-perfect choice for certain areas in your home. Everwood® blinds give the look of real wood, but are made of a durable composite that makes them ideal for hot or humid locations. Use them worry-free in your kitchen, bath or sunroom with a painted or stained finish.
Aluminum Blinds – Today’s Hunter Douglas aluminum blinds are nothing like the ones offered by other companies in years past. They are now offered in a variety of sizes and colors with many options. All aluminum blinds from Hunter Douglas are made from a mix of metals that “bounce back” to prevent unattractive, permanently bent slats. They are available in slats that range from ½ inch to 2 inches and can include decorative tapes and headrails. Reveal® blinds have 2-inch slats that collapse into pairs when opened to give you twice the view through your window even when the blinds are lowered.
Vertical Blinds in Marco Island, Florida
With all the sun in Florida, many homes have very wide windows or sliding glass doors that lead to patios or pools. Vertical blinds provide the perfect cover for these large expanses of glass. Traditional vertical blinds are available from Hunter Douglas in fabric, vinyl, wood, and aluminum. The vanes in Cadence® blinds have a curve in them giving the look of soft folds of fabric with the durability of vinyl. For the more economically-minded, Vertical Solutions® are available with 3 ½ inch fabric or vinyl vanes in several colors and patterns.
If you are looking for something a little different, consider Skyline® Gliding Window Panels. The 7 ½ or 10-inch wide vanes on these window coverings can be opened, closed or rotated like other vertical blinds, but they have a very sleek, modern appearance.
