Subtle Window Treatments for Homes

When it comes to creating the perfect look for our homes, we want certain designs to take centerstage and some pieces to take a backseat. Does this mean that this backseat pieces are less important? Of course not! If every single piece in our homes was meant to catch the attention of our guests, things would look incredibly loud and cluttered. That is why finding a balance when it comes to design is incredibly important. For example, if you have patterned couches, you will not want a patterned shade. Similarly, if you want your artwork to catch the attention of everyone who walks into your home, you will not want a hot pink blind to take away from that. While bold, patterned window treatments are stunning, they do not always have a place in each room in our home. Fortunately, Hunter Douglas has a stunning collection of subtle window treatments for you to choose from. Read on to find your perfect fit!

Vertical Solutions® Vertical Blinds

Perfect for minimalists, Hunter Douglas Vertical Solutions® allow other pieces of your home to take the spotlight while they provide subtle styles and easy operation. In fact, this collection of vertical blinds provides trouble-free operation so you can achieve light, shade, and privacy with ease. These vertical blinds come in a wide variety of colors and are also available in both fabric and vinyl options, so you can create the perfect subtle look for your home. Another perk of these blinds is that they are capable of absorbing sound. This will improve the acoustics in any room while reducing the intensity of outside noise. Since the degree of sound control depends on the fabric that you choose, be sure to bring this option up to one of our experts to select the right fabric for you. With so many benefits, it is easy to see why Vertical Solutions® Vertical Blinds are one of our favorite subtle window treatments for homes.

Silhouette® Window Shadings

Ethereal, light, and stunning, Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Window Shadings are one of the best subtle window treatments for homes. Available in a variety of neutral colors, these shades not only look great, but effortlessly offer light and privacy management throughout the day. This is thanks to the S-shaped vanes that float between the two sheer panels of the shade. This allows you to enjoy softly filtered light and, when the shade’s vanes are tilted, unparalleled privacy. Allow your artwork, upholstery, carpeting, or other design pieces to shine by picking subtle hues like Almond Crepe, Cathedral, Soft White, and more.

Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters

Available in colors like Bright White, White, and White Silk, Hunter Douglas Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters are another one of our favorite subtle window treatments for homes. Capable of fitting in with any style without taking away from the other pieces in your home, these shutters are here to impress. Additionally, since each slat is coated with a moisture and UV-resistant Polysatin™ material, these shutters will never warp, bend, fade, crack, or discolor when facing heat and humidity. This makes them perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, sunrooms, and even the outside of your home.
