Access to natural light is key to making your home feel open and welcoming. With certain architectural styles, that might mean fitting windows in wherever possible. This sometimes means unique, custom windows in a variety of sizes and even shapes. While these windows add character and help brighten your home, finding window treatments to cover them can feel a little tricky. At Hill Country Blinds, you can find custom coverings for all your unique windows.
If you have an assortment of unique windows in varying shapes, one of the best custom window treatment options is honeycomb, or cellular, shades. This style adds visual interest and offers benefits beyond light and privacy control. Honeycomb shades are named for the way they are built. Their construction resembles a honeycomb with cells that help trap air. This means that these shades can insulate your windows and help make your home more energy efficient. For example, if the heat of summer enters your home through your windows, the cells in the honeycomb shades will catch this air and prevent it from circulating through your house. Plus, these pockets or cells can also trap excess noise, so if you live in a close neighborhood, you can get a reprieve from the noise outside.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades have a variety of options for you to choose from to make your shades fit your specific needs. Not only can you customize the size and shape, but you can also choose your preferred pleat and cell size, opacity, color or pattern, and operating system. With unique windows, you might have varying degrees of access to them depending on where they are within your home. If you prefer traditional operation, you can choose a style that features a cord or wand. For a simple, hands-free option, LiteRise® lets you open and close your shade just by using your hand to push up or pull down. Finally, PowerView® Automation offers a modern operation from anywhere in your home. With PowerView, you can control your shades wirelessly with your mobile device or remote control. For maximum convenience, you can even schedule the movements of your window treatments.
While unique, smaller custom windows might be rare to some, large picture windows and sliding glass doors are a bit more common. With the Duette® Vertiglide™ system, you can enjoy the benefits of added insulation on the largest expanses of glass in your home. The Vertiglide™ operation style lets your Duette® Honeycomb Shades move side to side, so you can access sliding doors.
Another great option for large windows or doors is Skyline® Gliding Window Panels. These panels came in a variety of fabrics and patterns and can easily be opened by stacking them to the side. Plus, gliding window panels can be used as room dividers as well.
