6 Reasons to Love Hunter Douglas Window Treatments

Hunter Douglas is our premier window treatment brand here at Blue Ridge Builders Supply, and for good reason! They offer versatility, beautiful design, energy efficiency, custom personal touches, and more. There’s a lot to love about Hunter Douglas, so let’s dive right in.

1. Light control & privacy. 

Having the perfect lighting in your home is essential; do you like bright, natural glow or do you prefer the ability to darken your rooms? With Hunter Douglas window treatments, you can have BOTH simultaneously. Additionally with Smart Shades, you can also set times throughout the day for your blinds or sheers to open or close, open from top or bottom, have natural light while maintaining privacy, or open as a slow darkening at bedtime or ambient rise in the morning, creating the perfect light balance for your preference.


2. Energy efficiency.

If one of your goals is to go green, look no further! Hunter Douglas, the industry leader in energy efficiency, does a lot to make sure they’re eco-friendly, and one of the biggest ways they do that is through the honeycomb shades design. The Duette Honeycomb shades incorporate pockets that help conserve energy, keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Beyond the honeycomb design, Hunter Douglas products in general assist with insulation, solar heat control, and daylighting, just to name a few. Did you know that up to 50% of your home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through the windows? That’s a lot. Let Hunter Douglas help you save on those bills.


3. Smart home shade automation.

Can you imagine the convenience of controlling your windows with the press of a button or the tap of a phone app? Hunter Douglas offers exactly that through their PowerView Motorization option. With Powerview you have the choice of using the app for your mobile device or the handheld remote to control your window treatments. It also works with Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, and Google Assistant for hands free voice control as well.


4. Luxurious fabrics. 

Hunter Douglas prides themselves on beautiful and functional design. With this comes a choice of over 2,400 different fabrics in an array of different colors so you can personalize your window treatments down to the thread, allowing you to match to your home’s style. What’s even better about these unique fabrics is the innovative technology behind them: the fabrics you choose for your window treatments will be energy efficient and provide UV protection, privacy, and custom light control creating a completely personal experience.


5.  Safety.

Safety is a top priority for Hunter Douglas. Important considerations such as child safety, UV protection for inside your home, and staying up to date on recalls you may need to know about are a few of the things you can feel comfortable about in your purchase of Hunter Douglas window treatments.
