Which Type of Hunter Douglas Shade is Right for You

With all the options available today, choosing the perfect window treatment can feel overwhelming. There are a few things to take into consideration before making any final decisions. Read on to learn about some important topics to think about and some high-quality products that Hunter Douglas has to offer.

Light and Privacy

One of the most important things to consider when buying window coverings is whether or not they let the right amount of natural light into the room. Shadings that diffuse direct sunlight are perfect for rooms that have southern facing windows. Silhouette® by Hunter Douglas is a shading that was designed with light diffusion in mind and is perfect for any room that has a window with southern exposure.  With a unique S-shaped vane design suspended between two sheer fabric layers, they can greatly increase the comfort and usability of a room that receives direct, harsh sunlight. 

Roman Shades are another excellent choice for light control and privacy. They blend style and function in a unique way, and when used with the right fabric weight, they can also suppress a good deal of unwanted noise. All Hunter Douglas roman shades are available in specialty shapes and specialty operating systems, in a virtually unlimited selection of fabrics and prints.


When working within a budget, it’s important to choose the window treatments that accomplish the most important functions in each particular room. A beautiful yet budget-friendly solution is a woven wooden shade like the Provenance® collection from Hunter Douglas.
