Decorating your home is much like dressing yourself. The difference is, your home cannot change into a more formal or stylish outfit, based on the occasion. This is why you need to put serious thought and effort into how you decorate and refinish your home. Everything from the flooring to the window treatments needs to be stylish, versatile and classy. When it comes to features that help to establish the look of your home, custom window treatments can play a significant role. As you probably know, there is no brand of window treatments better than Hunter Douglas.
Though all of Hunter Douglas’ window treatment options are high-quality and stylish, it is still important to figure out the look you want to cultivate in your home. What looks great in one home may clash with the esthetics of another. For instance, if you want to cultivate a very modern look, you may be better off with custom shades rather than curtains. Bamboo shades give the home an open look and are especially nice in kitchens and bathrooms.
In the world of custom window treatments, blinds sometimes get overlooked because too many people associate blinds with the inexpensive gray plastic variety. Nevertheless, there are plenty of styles of blinds that are stylish, high-quality and versatile. Wooden blinds are a popular style of window treatment that offer some practical benefits, while being truly versatile and esthetically pleasing. Wooden blinds look great in homes with wooden furniture or trim, but they can also complement other styles of decor. They can be stained in either light or dark shades, and they can even be painted to match or complement the colors of your home.
Shutters are another exceptional and versatile style of custom window treatments offered by Hunter Douglas. Shutters are nice because they are attached to the frame of your windows, enabling them to appear to be part of your home, rather than just an accessory. Shutters also give your home a spacious quality, making your home appear open and chic. They are also versatile, insofar as they mesh well with both traditional and modern setups. Plantation shutters, which feature narrow slats are among the most popular. Much like wooden blinds, you can paint your plantation shutters however you want, making them among the most esthetically versatile custom window treatments.
