Do Your Windows Need Horizontal or Vertical Blinds?

When looking to update your window treatments, blinds tend to be a popular option, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Hunter Douglas blinds offer options for orientation, operation, colors, and materials, so you get blinds that offer more for your home. At Sew Fine II Interiors, we have 30 years of experience in window coverings, so we can help you find the right vertical or horizontal blinds for your home. Stop by our decorated design studio with a Hunter Douglas Gallery or contact us today to see what custom blinds have to offer.

Horizontal blinds work best on traditional windows that are taller than they are wide and windows that open up and down. Our Parkland® Wood Blinds are made from 100% real wood and come in a variety of different colors to complement any decor. They have a lifetime guarantee against warping and splitting of the wooden slats.  Wood blinds offer a natural charm and warmth to your home, and you can choose the slat size to ensure you get the right amount of light control and privacy in your home. If you like the way wood blinds look but need something a little more durable, consider Everwood® Wood Alternative Blinds. These blinds are created to mimic the look of real wood, but are made from an alternative wood material, making them more durable than wood. They are also guaranteed to never bow, yellow, or crack, regardless of temperature or moisture, so they are great for areas like garages and bathrooms that can get hot and humid. For a more modern look, check out our Modern Precious Metals® blinds. These sturdy aluminum blinds offer a great alternative to wood blinds, and there are several finishes available to give your blinds the right look for your home, including pearlescent, matte, and metallic.

If you need to cover wide windows or sliding glass doors, vertical blinds are a better option. Vertical blinds open from side to side, so they make using your sliding glass doors much easier than horizontal blinds would. Additionally, horizontal blinds get heavy and unwieldy as they get too wide, so they are not the best option for these types of windows. With our Hunter Douglas vertical blind choices, you can choose from aluminum, wood, vinyl, or fabric in many different colors and opacities. Our Skyline® Gliding Window Panels offer a dramatic look and great light diffusion. By diffusing the sunlight that enters your home, these panels spread that light around your room to better illuminate your home. This way, you can make better use of the natural light that enters your home and reduce the amount of artificial light you use. The Skyline Gliding Window Panels can cover very wide and long window openings with minimal projection into your room.  For a more economic option, our Vertical Solutions® blinds offer a more budget-friendly assortment of fabric and vinyl blinds. If you want more choices from your blinds, Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds offer the largest selection of textures, colors, and treatments, so there is something for everyone.

You can choose to operate your horizontal or vertical blinds by Hunter Douglas manually.  Child safe cordless lift options are available.  You can also choose to operate your blinds using battery powered motors.  Use a remote control….or your smart phone or tablet….to operate these window coverings even if you are not at home.

Whether you need vertical blinds, horizontal blinds, or a different window treatment altogether, Sew Fine II Interiors can help! We also offer full interior design services and home furnishings.  In-home appointments are available as well.  Our design studio is conveniently located in Durham, NC, near Southpoint Mall.
