Who Doesn’t Like New Things?

Everybody likes new things!  A new pair of sneaks to kick on at the start of your day.  That smell when you open up the door to your new car.  Or even just a new pillow, with the perfect fluff factor to lay your head down at night.  Springtime in April also means NEW Hunter Douglas Products in the world of window treatments!  Just released on April 17th, these motorization operating systems, extended fabric options, and variety of cool features throughout all of the window treatment selections, may very well be what you have been waiting for in your space!

Hunter Douglas Motorized Shutters

Shutters are a great for windows of all shapes and sizes and spaces of all designs and styles.  They are also a popular choice for specialty shaped windows, which many times are in hard to reach places.  While they are favorite among our clients, they have always had to be manually operated by tilting the louvers to various positions to achieve the privacy and light control you desire.

Palm Beach PolySatin Shutters

Now introducing Palm Beach Shutters with PowerView Motorization to conveniently tilt the louvers to your desired position.

PowerView Motorization has finally broken through into the shutter world with Palm Beach Polysatin Shutters!  Enjoy the convenience of hands-free louver tilt operation with the pebble remote.  If you have shutter panels with a divider rail or split tilt, you can independently operate the louver sections with motors in both the top and bottom rails.  These shutters now are available with an increased divider rail height limit too!

Duolite: Two Opacities in One Shade

Vignette Modern Roman Shades

New Duolite fabric option for Vignette Roman Shades

Duolite Dual Opacity Option now available on Hunter Douglas Vignette Modern Roman Shades to achieve the perfect level of light control and privacy!

Get the best of both worlds with the new Duolite option which combines a light-filtering or sheer front shade with a room darkening back panel together on the same roll!  The levels of privacy and light control are practically unlimited with this option, giving you day/night levels of convenience.

So how does it work?  Both shades roll off of the back of the rotator rail.  Therefore, once the front shade (either light-filtering or sheer) is fully lowered, you can then lower the back room darkening panel if you still desire a bit more privacy or less light.  This duolite feature is available in all fabrics and colors and is exclusive to PowerView Motorization.

NEW and Extended Design Options!

Hunter Douglas strives to provide countless design options to suit any style, personality, preference, or taste!  That is why they are constantly working to release more and more fabric selections throughout the majority of their treatments.
