Hunter Douglas offers several variations of the shade as part of their superior window treatment products. Take a look at the options available in order for you to select a blind that is right for you.

Honeycomb Shades

If an energy efficient shade is a top priority, the Hunter Douglas line of Honeycomb shades are a great choice. Not only do they boast an elegant design but they remain one of the leading window treatments for saving energy costs as well. Given their cellular shade design, Honeycomb shades have the ability to basically layer your windows with fabric, allowing their cells to trap in air or heat in order to prevent energy loss through your windows. Hunter Douglas also produces the Honeycomb shade with a two cell and triple cell design for an even more energy efficient treatment. These shades are also wonderful sound blockers, as they absorb exterior noises to help make your home quiet and enjoyable. Honeycomb shades can be paired with the Hunter Douglas Vertiglide™ system which is highly recommended for sliding glass doors or floor to ceiling windows. With several series including the Duette®, Duette® Architella®, Applause®, and Pleated, choosing from the wide variety of color and fabric options will be your hardest choice with the Hunter Douglas Honeycomb shade.

Roman Shades

With modern designs and bold colors, Hunter Douglas Roman shades are made to stand out as more than just your typical window treatment. These shades are designed with elegant folds and come in countless color options, from deep rich tones to bright and bold prints, making them a great choice for a sophisticated appearance. The Hunter Douglas Vignette® Roman shade are extremely adaptable to your needs, offering 4 inch or 6 inch folds, no exposed cords, and both vertical or horizontal orientations. Despite which orientation you want, the Vignette® shade pairs with the Vertiglide™ system to stack your shades left or right, or choose the Tiered™ system, which neatly folds your shades into a beautiful stack. Much like the Honeycomb shades, the Roman’s neat folds also make it a great sound absorber and an excellent source of UV protection as well. The fabric used to make Roman shades are sold by the yard, allowing you the creativity to update your accent décor with fabric that matches your window treatments. Hunter Douglas offers other series of their Roman shade, like their Alustra® Collection of Vignette® featuring designer fabrics, their Design Studio™ for unique fabrics, trims, and tapes, and also their Solera® soft shade for that sheer look.

Roller Shades

A simple shade doesn’t have to be cheaply made or unappealing, and Hunter Douglas proves this with their signature Roller shades. Their newest design, the Custom Clutch, has a contemporary appearance with the most current lift technology for easy use. Guaranteed to cover your entire window surface and with long lasting construction, Roller shades come with the Hunter Douglas Lifetime Guarantee giving you peace of mind for years to come. If you’ve found Roller shades visually unappealing in the past, consider a headrail cover or bottom treatments to help give a flair of style to your windows. With protective backing and dual roller shades, Hunter Douglas ensures this line of shades offer UV protection and are as energy efficient as many of their other products. For a fashionable appearance, go with the Designer Screen Shades or Designer Roller Shades, and for a classy upgrade consider The Alustra® Collection of Roller Shades. When you combine the Roller shades with one of the many Hunter Douglas motorized system, using your window treatments daily comes with ease.
