1. Roller Shades
Roller shades are a good option when you are seeking an uncomplicated option for privacy. They’re created from one piece of fabric that you can individualize. With hundreds of fabrics and varying opacities to select from, you’re certain to discover one that works with your up-to-date home and provides the privacy you are looking for.
Our Designer Roller Shades are made with attractiveness and privacy in mind. There are more than 300 fabrics to choose from in a collection of patterns, textures and colors. But whichever fabric you select, you’ll have greater privacy and light control through an exclusive standard feature. Hunter Douglas’ patented Custom Clutch operating system keeps the shade closer to the window, preventing light from getting through.
When you need privacy in addition to sun protection, there’s Designer Screen Shades. These shades stop at least 75% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, defending your flooring, furniture and artwork.
2. Bamboo Shades
Wanting a more natural style? Bamboo shades are crafted from real grasses, reeds and woods to add warmth and dimension to your house. And you can individualize yours with light-filtering liners to add better privacy at nighttime.
These shades come in three distinct fashions, so you can find the best look for your home. These styles include Roman, which lays flat when shut, and waterfall Roman, which folds into neat pleats when up or down. Then, you can add optional banding, valances and headrails to put the final touches on the look.
3. Roman Shades
With soft fabric folds, Roman shades give the feel of drapes with the ease of shades. That way, it’s easier to enjoy natural light during the day and enhanced privacy at night, without the bother of moving large drapes.
With Vignette®, you can have a Duolite® panel to change your window treatments into blackout shades during the day and privacy shades at night. With no dangling rear cords, Vignette offers a clean look for your modern house.
When you are wanting greater energy efficiency, there’s Solera®. These honeycomb roman shades incorporate cells that capture air for greater insulation. The result is reduced energy loss at your windows, a comfier residence and potentially a smaller utility bill yearly.

4. Honeycomb Shades
Enjoy improved energy efficiency and more privacy at nighttime with honeycomb shades. These shades make a barrier that retains air at your windows, better controlling your home’s heating and cooling to keep you more comfortable.
