Shades and Sheers
When most people think of window treatments, they likely think of blinds or draperies. After all, blinds are the most utilitarian window treatments, and draperies and curtains are the most traditional window fashion. But because of this monopoly, many people do not consider the other options that they have for window treatments when it comes time to pick out the perfect window treatments for their homes. Here at A Shade Above in Middletown, RI, however, we offer the full selection of Hunter Douglas shades and sheers, all of which would make fantastic, beautiful, and useful additions to your homes.
It’s no coincidence that “sheer shadings” sounds so similar to “sheers.” Of all of Hunter Douglas’s window treatments, sheer shadings are the most similar to draperies, and combine the flexible vanes of a vertical blind with the sheer fabrics of a sheer drape or curtain. This allows for a unique selection of light control options: when the vanes are completely open, the fabric panels filter the light coming into your home, softening the harsh edges. However, when completely closed, they more closely resemble blinds.
Honeycomb shades are practically unprecedented: they don’t resemble any window treatments that came before them, and for good reason. Their futuristic design features open pockets, or cells, that trap air from entering or leaving through your windows. This keeps your hard-earned air conditioning or heating inside, and the elements outside, helping you save money and energy in the process.
If you are a picky homeowner, or just have very distinct ideas of style, then roman shades are going to be your best friend. While their unique, pleated design is distinct on its own, it is truly the wide array of fabrics, patterns, colors, styles, and decorative accessories that make roman shades so exciting.
If you want light control without any fuss, then roller shades are perfect for you. Their no-nonsense construction is almost impossibly easy to operate, and their sleek design makes them perfect for striking designs or colors. They also have the added benefit of providing UV resistance to your home.
Are you a nature lover? If you are, then woven wood shades from Hunter Douglas are going to be the perfect window treatment for you. Made out of a specially blended selection of reeds, grasses, and woods, these shades give your home the dappled light diffusion of a lush forest, as well as bringing any room in your home a sense of natural tranquility.
