Benefits of Custom Blinds

Blinds are a great solution for any type of window in any style of home decor. Whether you need vertical blinds to cover a large window or sliding glass door, or horizontal blinds that offer privacy and light control in your bedroom or any other room in your home, Hunter Douglas has countless options when it comes to blinds. Because Hunter Douglas offers so many types and styles of blinds, there are many benefits to this versatile window treatment.

Light Control

All blinds offer good control over the amount of light that enters a room. For windows that receive direct sunlight, horizontal blinds do the best job at blocking out harsh rays. Two great examples are Parkland® Scenic™ and EverWood® TruGrain™. Both available with the de-Light™ feature that eliminates cord holes that can allow spots of light in, eliminating all light leaks and offering UV protection for artwork, flooring and furniture with at least 75% protection from harmful rays. 


Very few window treatments offer the amount of privacy that blinds do. Having total control over the position of your blinds is important when privacy is an issue. Blinds give you that control and they’re more likely to stay put. Lightlines® are an excellent option when privacy is a concern. Available in a wide range of colors and finishes, these aluminum blinds offer maximum privacy with the de-Light™ feature that hides cord holes to eliminate those annoying little spots of light that occur when blinds have holes in them for the cord.  

Endless Possibilities

There are countless options when it comes to Hunter Douglas blinds. Available in vertical and horizontal orientations, aluminum, alternative wood and natural wood materials, and countless colors and textures, there is a solution for any window and any budget.  Textures and finishes now available in alternative wood blinds make the decision between real and faux much simpler than before.  If the window is especially large, or if the design goal is the natural color variation of a stained real wood product, the potential weight savings of natural wood and the unmatched character of real grain will guide your choice.  Hunter Douglas offers unparalleled selection in both real hardwood and alternative wood blind products to help you achieve all of your design goals regardless of the material choice.

Aluminum continues to be a very popular choice in blinds, as it has been for decades.  Hunter Douglas offers 2” aluminum slats that evoke an entirely different design statement than the mini-blind format common several decades ago in office buildings.  Contemporary colors and finishes help designers and homeowners blend aluminum blinds into just about any decor.  Hunter Douglas offers an aluminum product called Reveal® that allows pairs of 2” slats to nest closely together when fully open, exposing a much clearer view of the outdoors than in any other line of binds.

Easy Maintenance 

Blinds are probably the easiest type of window treatment to clean and maintain. Most blinds are as easy to clean as a simple wipe with a damp cloth. Hunter Douglas offers a patented finish called Dust Shield™ that repels dust and makes clean up simple.
