Options for Hunter Douglas Blinds

Blinds have been around for decades, but the options available from Hunter Douglas give these versatile window treatments a fresh perspective. We carry blinds at the All About Blinds, Etc. showroom in O’Fallon, Missouri.

Hunter Douglas Blinds Are Available in Several Materials

Wood – Both vertical and horizontal blinds are available in hard woods from Hunter Douglas. Whether you choose basswood, ash, or abachi, this traditional material provides natural beauty and pattern to your windows when stained. Wood blinds also come painted to match painted trim or cabinets.

Aluminum – Perfect for bathrooms, kids’ playrooms, or other high-traffic areas, aluminum blinds resist bending and are easily cleaned thanks to Dust Shield™ technology, which keeps Hunter Douglas’s aluminum blinds clean. For a more open view, Reveal® aluminum blinds have two-inch slats that collapse into pairs when they are tilted open.

Faux – Faux wood horizontal blinds offer the look of wood, but are guaranteed to withstand the hottest and dampest conditions without warping or fading. The Everwood™ collection is available in a wide range of stains and painted finishes.

Vinyl – Custom vinyl vertical blinds from Hunter Douglas combine both form and function. Vinyl holds up well through heavy use and is easy to clean. The uniquely shaped vanes of Cadence® vertical blinds give the illusion of fabric.

Fabric – For contemporary style, try Skyline® Gliding Window Panels. These window fashions have 6-inch or wider vertical panels of fabric that glide effortlessly from side-to-side across your sliding glass doors. If you prefer a more traditional look and a more economical window treatment, Vertical Solutions® are available in both fabric and vinyl.

Operating Systems for Vertical and Horizontal Blinds

Another option to consider when shopping for blinds is how you want them to operate. Hunter Douglas offers several operating systems.

Cordless – If the safety of young children or pets is a concern, you may want a cordless operating system for your blinds. LiteRise® and SimpleLift™ are cordless options for horizontal blinds. Simply push up or pull down on the bottom of the window covering to raise or lower it. To eliminate cords on your vertical blinds, select the PermAssure® wand control, which uses just one wand to open and close the blinds and rotate the vanes.

Corded – Corded systems come standard on all Hunter Douglas blinds. Horizontal blinds are operated with two separate sets of cords and vertical blinds use a cord loop to traverse the blinds and two chains to rotate the vanes. If you don’t care for the look of longer cords when your horizontal blinds are raised, try UltraGlide®, which uses a retractable cord that stays the same length.

Motorized Motorized blinds are the ultimate in convenience. Multiple window treatments can be adjusted at the same time by pushing a button on a remote or based on a schedule set with the PowerView App on your cellphone, tablet, or whole-house automation system.

Don’t settle for off-the-shelf window treatments, let our experts help you create custom blinds with the options you want for your home. All About Blinds, Etc. serves the greater St. Charles, Missouri area.
