Hunter Douglas Specialty Shaped Window Treatments

Specialty shaped windows are unique focal points in your home that may also contribute to light control and privacy concerns.

To Cover or Not 

Specialty shaped windows can be a trademark of your home, giving your space a unique touch, making some homeowners wanting to leave them untreated as a focal point.  However, there are a few possible scenarios that would lead you to needing to cover these specialty windows.  For example, perhaps you have a large semi-circle arched window in your living room, that while gorgeous, contributes to the unbearable sun glare across your flat screen.  Or perhaps the sun beams down through the top angled window in your son’s bedroom, waking him up early and leaving him cranky… or yourself.  Or, maybe you are sick of feeling exposed your bathroom with its circular window acting as a gateway to the rest of the world.

Whatever the reason, we are able to assist you with multiple options in various Hunter Douglas treatments to ensure that your concerns are addressed, and your frustrations alleviated!
