Roller Shades combine simplicity with texture in fabrics or vinyl from sheer to opaque. Roller shades can be used alone or with a vast array of top and bottom treatments. Roller Shades are available in a variety of lifting systems and design options including a cordless operation that is perfect for homes with small children and pets.
Honeycomb and Cellular Shades
Hunter Douglas was the original maker of the honeycomb shade. This energy efficient honeycomb blind can come in single, double, or triple honeycomb structure. Honeycomb shades come in a variety of fabric styles and colors offering a wide range of privacy and light control options.
Horizontal blinds have horizontal – side to side – slats and open upward from the bottom by a pull mechanism. The slats may be rotated by using a tilt wand or chord. Horizontal blinds are also called mini blinds and venetian blinds and can have 1/2″, 1″, or 2″ wide slats. Horizontal blinds can be made of aluminum, pvc, wood, or faux wood.
Vertical blinds have slats that hang down vertically.
Vertical blinds open side to side.
Examples of vertical blinds from Hunter Douglas include: Hunter Douglas Vertical Solutions® Select Vertical Blinds and Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds
Vertical blinds offer a designer look with numerous options to complement any decor from traditional to contemporary. Several options are available for fabric, vinyl types, headrail design, and operating systems.
