Shades, blinds and drapes serve various purposes, from protecting a family’s privacy to regulating indoor temperature. However, it’d be naive to claim they serve a solely utilitarian role. In most luxury homes, window coverings are first and foremost vital stylistic flourishes, with homeowners investing thousands of dollars on the fabrics and designs they love most.
Motorized shades are a great way to marry form and function by offering seamless control of beautiful window coverings. We partner with Hunter Douglas because they provide a wide range of high-end fabrics for both manual and motorized applications.
Below we outline some of their top design and control offerings to help you find the solution that would best fit your New Orleans, LA, home.
Hunter Douglas is the go-to shading option for interior designers due to its diverse shading models and in-house Design Studio fabric collection. With Hunter Douglas, you can choose any style - from sheers, honeycomb shades, roman shades, and roller shades to wooden blinds, shutters, vertical blinds, and wood and metal blinds.
Shutters are available in hardwoods and composites, multiple color finishes and specialty shapes. Blinds come in wood, wood alternatives and precious metals, with metal blinds available in matte and metallic finishes. For the shades, homeowners can peruse the company’s highly curated lines. These include exclusive options from spotlighted artists in both opaque and semi-opaque fabrics.
The beauty of Hunter Douglas is that all the models outlined above are available in both motorized and manual varieties. We recommend opting for motorized shades wherever possible for the ultimate convenience. The company’s PowerView Automation system is compatible with most automation platforms to manage shades via mobile apps, dedicated touchpads, on-wall keypads or voice commands.
For some, though, there’s a comfort in retaining manual control for certain applications. In those cases, Hunter Douglas offers a few innovative options. Their UltraGlide system uses retractable cords or wands that remain a constant length when raising or lowering. By avoiding extra-long cords, they reduce safety concerns for children and pets. Add simplicity to your shades with the LiteRise system, which lets you adjust window treatments by pushing up or pulling down. There are also many more traditional chords, chains and wands to choose from.
If you’re interested in adding Hunter Douglas shades to your home, we’re here to help every step of the way, from measuring windows to programming automated scenes. For a one-on-one consultation with our team, call us, fill out our contact form, or chat with us below.
