How Do I Choose?

The Options are Endless

Cheddar, pizza, pretzel, nacho, BBQ, rainbow, ranch: these flavors and more all call your name and catch your eye as you stroll down snack aisle 10 of your local grocery store.  Amazed by all the choices, you begin to wonder “What happened to just the “Original” flavor of goldfish crackers?”

Countless options to a consumer are great, but if you do not know exactly what you are looking for, you may easily become overwhelmed.  The same can be true as you make the next step in your home to purchase window treatments.  With countless purposes, styles, colors, operating systems, fabrics, and more, you may not know where to begin.  Our staff at Ambiance Design would be honored to lend you a hand in offering advice to get you started in selecting window treatments.

Picky-Choosy: We Have the Right Fit for You

With our wide selection of Hunter Douglas window treatments to choose from, you have the right to be as picky as you want.  Here are the top considerations for you to make:

1. Purpose:

Your purpose for your window treatments is probably the number one deciding factor that will help narrow down your choices.  Depending on your specific needs, there may be a good, better, and best option for you!

  • Privacy

Windows are focal points on a house from the outside looking in, and I am willing to bet that you don’t want your neighbors gazing through the glass panes of your bedroom and bathroom.  Choose from a variety of options to ensure comfort in your home with utmost privacy.

  • Energy Efficiency: Greener Lives

Windows allow for unwanted heat transfer in your home, causing your heating and cooling systems to have to work harder.  However, with window coverings, you can better control this energy loss and cut back significantly on your energy bills.  Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb Shades are one of the best options for energy efficiency.

  • Light Control: Sunshine and Glare

Natural lighting is a beautiful thing!  Not only does it enable you to save money with your electrical bill, it just seems to brighten your day.  Personally, I love to be able to see the sun shining and the flowers blooming through my windows while doing household duties.  However, when I sit down to watch television (that is if I have the time) there is nothing more annoying than the sunlight glare across the screen.  Window treatments offer an easy solution, such as the Silhouette Window Shadings or the new Designer Banded Shades among other options, allowing for you to control the amount of light you let in throughout the day.

Different vane sizes and opacity levels allow for varying amounts of view-through, natural lighting, and privacy.  From sheer to opaque (blackout), light filtering or room darkening, you can choose which would best serve your purpose!

2.  Style and Design

Design options for selecting treatments: Hunter Douglas top-down/bottom-up Woven WoodsChoose the window treatment that best fits the style of your home as well as provides you with the utmost convenience to suit your needs.

  • Home Décor

Contemporary, modern, earthy, or traditional, we can help you find the perfect fit to stay consistent with your home décor.  There are many colors and fabric styles as well!

  • Structure

From the way it is mounted, to its operating system, to the size of the vanes, louvers, slats, or pleats, each window treatment provides you with structural choices to consider.  Perhaps you want the convenience of using the PowerView Motorization Pebble.  Or, maybe you want it to have a top-down/bottom-up feature to control the lighting better.  Each choice has many benefits to offer you.

3. Price

With a wide price range of treatments to consider, we can help find the window treatment that will best satisfy your needs while staying within your budget.  What’s best, is that you can guarantee you will receive high quality Hunter Douglas products with a limited lifetime guarantee!
