Choices for Hunter Douglas Blinds

Choosing anything for your home is equal parts exciting and stressful. After all, we spend more time in our homes than we do anywhere else, and so you want to make sure you really love everything that you decide to get for your home. Window treatments, perhaps more than anything else in our homes, has a tangible effect on the feeling of a space, and so knowing all of your options is essential to getting the home you want. If you think you want blinds for your home, let the window treatment professionals at The Shade Shop in Grand Rapids, Michigan tell you about all of your choices for Hunter Douglas blinds.


First of all, you need to choose what orientation you want for your blinds. Although it may not seem like it makes a huge difference, horizontal and vertical blinds both have their strong suits. If you have very standard windows and desire fairly total light control, then horizontal blinds are going to be the best choice for you. Constructed of horizontal slats, horizontal blinds are then adjusted to change the angle of the slats or raise and lower the blinds as a whole. When closed, horizontal blinds can achieve fairly complete light control, making them a great choice for bedrooms or home offices.


While horizontal blinds can work with almost any window, there are a few situations where vertical blinds may be more appropriate. For example, if you have particularly large windows or a sliding glass door in your home, vertical blinds are perfect as their ability to slide to the side makes them incredibly versatile.


Once you have decided the style of blinds that you want, you need to decide what you want them to be made of. Horizontal blinds from Hunter Douglas are made from harder materials, and can be purchased in either hardwood, alternative wood, or aluminum. Vertical blinds, on the other hand, are made from softer materials, such as fabric or vinyl. Either way, both styles of blinds are available in a large variety of colors, so they will be sure to fit any room in your home perfectly.
