There are many types of window treatments you can choose for privacy and light control for your living room and other rooms where you congregate. The blinds need to be stylish as well as offer functional benefits. Blinds are a great choice because they provide style, light control, and privacy. At Sew Fine II Interiors, we offer a wide selection of both vertical and horizontal blinds from Hunter Douglas, and our trained staff will help you find the best style for your home. Visit our decorated design studio today to explore the Hunter Douglas offerings in our gallery. You can see, feel, and operate these blinds before you make your final decision on which to choose for your windows.

When looking for living room blinds, it’s important to determine which kind of window you are looking to outfit. For traditional or specialty-shaped windows, horizontal blinds are a great option. They are available in wood, alternative wood, and aluminum. You can choose from a variety of colors and textures to compliment the décor in your room. If you have wide windows or sliding glass doors, you may want to choose vertical blinds. Because they open to the side, vertical blinds won’t impede the use of  doors or windows. Available in fabrics and vinyl vanes there are vertical blinds that compliment traditional, transitional, and contemporary settings.  The Cadence® style of Hunter Douglas vertical blinds have the appearance of draperies when covering the window. When drawn open, they stack compactly, unlike many draperies.

It is important to determine why you need blinds at your window in order to select the best functions offered for the blinds. Light control, privacy, and convenience are all available with Hunter Douglas horizontal and vertical blinds. Fabric vanes on vertical blinds are a great option for filtering the light entering the room. Fabric vanes soften the harsh light that enters from the outside and spread the light around the room for a more comfortable illumination. If you want to keep the natural light out, consider our wood and metal blinds, or vinyl vanes for vertical blinds. The de-Light™ feature on wood and aluminum blinds eliminates the “cord holes” in the slats. No light will penetrate the slat and enter your room with de-Light™.

Hunter Douglas sources their horizontal and vertical blind vane materials from all over the world. Not only will your blinds look great, they will also be lasting fixtures in your home for years to come. For a more classic look, consider Parkland® Wood Blinds, which feature rich hardwood slats in a variety of stain colors and textures. If you prefer a more modern style, Modern Precious Metals® aluminum blinds are the perfect choice for you. In addition to many colors offered, they also feature special finishes for added customization. These finishes include metallic, matte, and pearlescent choices.

Hunter Douglas blinds are guaranteed to be free from manufacturing defects and are guaranteed to operate for the lifetime of the blind. Both the wood blinds and the vertical blinds are Greenguard certified, and both are available with child-safe operating systems.
