The world of window coverings has become a widespread and diverse industry. As a trusted provider, Hunter Douglas Canada offers an unparalleled selection of blinds, shades and shutters. Their product selection and quality differentiates and elevates this company in the window covering industry.
Window coverings in the Calgary area become an extension of our unique personal styles. It is important to choose your blinds and shades carefully so everything in your home can flow together. However, with the amazing selection of window coverings, you may be asking, “What are the best Hunter Douglas window treatments for style and function in 2021?”
Blind Infusion’s Hunter Douglas specialist and certified consultant, Kirstin, offers her insights based on her extensive industry experience and knowledge of Hunter Douglas’ 2021 product line.
Hunter Douglas Silhouette® & SoftTouch Motorization®
One of the most beautiful soft shades are the Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Window Shadings. The two layers of sheer encasing an s-shaped fabric vane provide beautiful, natural diffusion of light. When tilted down, they provide privacy and block the light and view. Hunter Douglas propriety SoftTouch® Motorization allows you the convenience of a motor without the higher investment or price. One touch of the sleek wand allows you to lower or open the sheer shades, allowing you to control your light.
Hunter Douglas PowerView® is a perfect solution for those who like to operate their shades from the comfort of their chair. Even when that chair is overseas! The Hunter Douglas hub paired into the PowerView® Motorization allows you the ultimate flexibility and convenience of all the operating systems.
Luminette® Privacy Sheers
The Hunter Douglas Silhouette® also has a coordinating product to consider for sliding doors or patios. The Luminette® Privacy Sheers will provide you the elegance of the sheers on a vertical application; the rotating vanes allow you to maximize light and privacy.
The Luminette® also has a very wide allowance for PowerView® DC automation. A quick plug-in connection and you are set to operate your Privacy Sheers with the click of a button. They are a perfect choice as a Calgary window covering for our wide windows and sliding doors.
Roller Shades have made a huge impact in the window covering line-up. They offer a vast range of textured fabrics, varying neutrals and fun prints. This provides homes with the simplicity of function with the interest of textures, screens and fabric options.
A wide range of room dimming fabrics with fantastic depth of color and textures can provide your rooms greater light control. Although not the best for room darkening due to their side light gaps they are often a huge contender for bedrooms and media rooms.
Pair your shade with the light filtering and room darkening drapery panels and PowerView® hub. You have the ultimate in light control, style and ease of use. Hunter Douglas also offers Designer Roller Shades and Roller Screens with the SoftTouch® Motorization feature.
Just a minimal investment provides you with a sleek motorized wand to operate your shades with a soft push or slight pull. Of course, operating these automated shades with PowerView® app is the perfect solution for child safety and remote control operation.
Hunter Douglas Palm Beach™ & NewStyle Shutters®
And, if you are looking to add an architectural feature to your windows, consider Hunter Douglas Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters or NewStyle® Shutters. The Palm Beach shutter is designed to withstand heat and moisture. Its durable, UV resistant Polysatin composition prevents cracking, warping, fading and peeling. It is a good choice in humid areas as it is resistant to mold and mildew.
Hunter Douglas Palm Beach™ Shutters are the only shutter in the Canadian Market that can be automated with PowerView®. It is an exclusive product that can highlight your home’s décor and showcase your tech savvy flair.
If you are looking for a shutter that is not a polysatin material, consider the NewStyle® Hybrid Shutter. It is made from a wood composite material that is co-extruded with a polypropolene coating for a shutter that is built to last.
Hunter Douglas NewStyle® Hybrid Shutter has the proprietary Finetech® Finish. This offers a look and feel of warm wood with low-lustre grain-like finishes. The shutters’ dovetail construction offers a unique structural component that stands the test of time. With so many options, these window shutters will suit any interior.
Hunter Douglas Solera® Soft Shades
One of my personal favourites in the window covering line-up is the Solera® Hunter Douglas blinds. These soft shades mimic the function of a Roman shade with the sophistication of Hunter Douglas design and operating systems.
The unique large soft-pleated fabric construction provides similar energy efficiency to the Hunter Douglas Honeycomb shades. This style of shade has quickly become one of Blind Infusion’s favourite window coverings. The beautiful soft folds of fabric raise up into a soft folding stack. This Solera® stack mimics the appearance of a valance, so it becomes Drapery IN your window.
The elegant fabric textures like the Alexa and Layla collections add the interest of subtle texture giving your windows depth of color and interest. All fabric colors are available in room darkening options and are fabulous options for bedrooms and media rooms.
LiteRise® & UltraGlide® Operating Systems
LiteRise® roller shades (cordless) and UltraGlide® operating systems are standard features, thereby giving consumers great price points without additional upgrades. As always, Hunter Douglas PowerView® is an excellent option to consider if you are choosing Solera® Soft Shades. If you are looking for a unique product that is energy efficient and beautiful check out the Solera Shade!
