Which Window Treatment is Best for You?

With all the options for window treatments out there, which window treatment is best for you?


  • If you like a clean, simple, and minimal look, Hunter Douglas is for you. There are many options of Hunter Douglas products, from Duette shades to wooden blinds. Hunter Douglas products have a clean and simple look. They’re great if you have a beautiful waterfront view and don’t want curtains obscuring it at all.
  • If you have an odd-shaped window, Hunter Douglas can be fit for nearly any angle or size.


  • Roman shades can be customized in nearly any fabric. They can be lined in anything from a simple, lightweight cotton to a full blackout lining – making them ideal for bedrooms where you want a darkened room.
  • If you have a kitchen or bathroom window, a place where you can’t really have full curtains, romans are a great option to soften the space while adding a pattern.


  • A simple valance is a good compromise between a roman shade and a Hunter Douglas. A valance goes just above the window. If you want to add a little bit of pattern/color with fabric but don’t want to fully cover the window, just doing a simple valance is a great option.


  • Sheer panels are very pretty for a beach home. They diffuse the light but aren’t totally opaque, so you can dress your windows up without losing too much natural light.


  • There are dozens of ways to do traditional drapery panels – from pinch pleats to grommet holes, to swags and jabots. More simple panels have been gaining in popularity recently, with a pinch pleat or balloon pleat on the top. These are lovely with a gorgeous trim on the leading edge.
