Keeping Your Privacy, And Your View With Hunter Douglas
The need to balance privacy with the desire to keep a view of the outside can be one of the most challenging factors when choosing window coverings. While maintaining privacy will be crucial in some spaces, such as bathrooms and bedrooms, you might be interested in more flexible solutions in others, such as kitchens or living rooms.
Hunter Douglas has many creative window solutions; here are several factors to consider when balancing appearance and privacy.
Top-Down/Bottom-Up Window Shades
Traditionally, window shades operate from the top down, rolling or folding up at the top of the window. While this is perfect for allowing the most light to enter during the day, it also means there is no middle ground; instead, they are either open or closed.
For our Hunter Douglas Honeycomb Shades, Hunter Douglas has included top-down/bottom-up and bottom-up operations. Depending on your window’s orientation, where the light is streaming, and where you want privacy, these ingenious shades may be opened from the top or bottom.
Additionally, Hunter Douglas Vignette® Modern Roman Shades are a more elegant alternative that can also do top down/bottom up. Roman shades have soft overlapping folds instead honeycombs crisp pleated folds.
Use Shutters To Angle Your View
Shutters are an excellent window option since they can be easily turned and slanted to provide privacy while allowing light into your room. They can be fully opened for optimum visibility throughout the day, and when privacy is necessary in the evening or at other times, they can easily be angled shut.
Hunter Douglas Palm Beach™ polysatin shutters and Hunter Douglas NewStyle Shutters can be used in various ways, such as a room divider, to cover big windows or sliding doors, and more. Depending on your requirements, they can be made in various styles and come in hinged, hinged bi-fold, bi-fold on track, and by-pass on track formats.
As well as their durability, the privacy provided by these shutters is one of the reasons they’re so popular in high sun and moist areas like bedrooms and bathrooms.
For Semi-Private Spaces, Use Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades
Absolute privacy is not always necessary. For instance, some rooms may have an open view of the mountains or the forest. Using a sheer or semi-sheer window shade can be an excellent solution for places without complete privacy. This will allow you to gently filter the light entering your home without totally obstructing the view to the outside.
Numerous styles, formats, and fabric options are available in the Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades line.
Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades have the option to achieve complete privacy. A dual shade option will darken and provide privacy to a space.
Give Hunter Douglas Luminette Privacy Sheers some thought.
Consider the Hunter Douglas Luminette Privacy Sheers, another well-liked, straightforward approach to balance privacy and view. With the elegance of a soft window covering, these cutting-edge shades provide a modern perspective on traditional vertical blinds. They offer a wonderful blend of fashion, technology, and functionality thanks to the Hunter Douglas innovative Softrak scissor mechanism, which provides a whisper-quiet operation, and the futuristic PowerView motorization system.
While offering daytime privacy, the gentle fabric lets light into the house. Turning the fabric vanes halfway allows you to easily change the amount of privacy and light to meet your needs. You can then totally close the shades to block light.
