When choosing the perfect blinds and shades to compliment your space, it can be overwhelming to confront all the possible options available to you. Today we’ll take a look at all the most popular options that are trending right now. Each offers a distinct look and feel that can enhance the aesthetic and feeling of the room. You should carefully consider how well your window treatments match with your other pieces.
Sheers & Shadings
Sheers and shadings are fantastic for transforming light and diffusing it through the room while giving you UV protection for you, your furniture and your artwork. This means you can stop worrying about sun damage affecting the rest of the room. Sheers and shadings are especially wonderful for spaces with large windows or that get a lot of sunlight. You can preserve the natural light while preventing unsightly sun damage – a win-win!
There are a variety of popular options out there, including the Silhouette® Window Shadings from HunterDouglas, which offer adjustable vanes built into the shade so that you can adjust the amount of sunlight and privacy. The Pirouette® Window Shadings offer a single sheer backing between the vanes so that you can still get great views of the outdoors while maintaining privacy and light protection. The Luminette® Privacy Sheers are perfect for wide windows and sliding doors. With vertical vanes, they come in a variety of sheer and drapery fabrics so that you have unlimited light control and privacy options.
The Duette® Honeycomb Shades by HunterDouglas are the original cellular shades and are “specifically engineered to provide beauty and energy efficiency at the window in both cold and warm climates.” Their unique honeycomb design traps air between the window and the room, providing a level of insulation that can either keep heat in or out, depending on the season. Windows are notorious vectors for heat loss, and honeycomb shades can mitigate that.
The Duette® Honeycomb Shades come in a variety of colors and fabrics, so you are sure to find the perfect look to compliment your home.
Roman Shades offer the beautiful look of soft fabric folds with the ease of use of a shade. They give a beautiful classy look to any space and come in a ton of different fold styles, sizes, colors, fabrics, and more. Roman Shades are perfect for windows that get a lot of direct sunlight, or rooms where you want to control how much light enters.
The Vignette® Modern Roman Shades offer consistent folds, no exposed rear cords so that your windows are safer and tidy. The Solera® Soft Shades are made from woven and non-woven fabrics to give a fluid, sculpted look to the shade.

Woven woods offer a natural, textural look on your windows. They are often hand-woven from natural wood fibers to provide an earthy and natural look to your space. The wood creates a light filtering effect that offers a luxurious option for window treatments.
The two options offered by HunterDouglas focus on the hand-woven craftsmanship of the woven wood window shades.
