Hunter Douglas is one of the most popular brands for quality window coverings, which can offer different kind of benefits, such as: privacy and light control, thermal comfort and innovations.

Below are 3 benefits of Hunter Douglas window treatments:

Privacy and Light Control

  • Diffuse or Black Out Sunlight

The translucent fabrics that many of our products offer are specially engineered to diffuse harsh sunlight and draw it deeper into the room – dispersing the light to help illuminate your home naturally and reduce the need for artificial light. Our semi-opaque and opaque fabrics and materials are more appropriate for room darkening when you want as little light as possible.

  • Deflect or Redirect Sunlight

Select Hunter Douglas products feature innovative slats and vanes that allow you to deflect and redirect sunlight precisely where you want.

  • Top-Down/Bottom-Up

With innovations like our unique Top-Down/Bottom-Up operating system, you can maintain your privacy and still enjoy the natural light.

  • Room Darkening Liners

If you are looking for optional room darkening capabilities, consider a room darkening liner available on many of our shades. The liner can be sewn directly to the face fabric, or for ultimate flexibility, can operate independently. Source: Hunterdouglas

Thermal Comfort

The general well-being of a building’s occupants contributes to the cost benefit of sustainable design.  Hunter Douglas’ overall shading strategy addresses daylighting, glare control, management of heat gain and general aesthetics.  Each plays a key role in improving indoor environmental quality, conserving energy and supporting built environments that are comfortable, healthy, productive, and sustainable. Source: HunterDouglasContract



Motorized blinds eliminate any cords. This is a great benefit for households with young children, where cord dangers lurk at every window.

If you have a large window, the weight of one blind can sometimes be too heavy for one person to lift. This is a perfect situation for a motorized blind.

When your windows are very high, a motorized shade can help maximize functionality. I would recommend that an installation like this be hardwired with either a remote or wall switch, so you can avoid having to get the ladder out to change the batteries.  Source:
