If you’re searching for the right shades in Tucson AZ, let the friendly staff at The Blind Guys help you choose a modern window treatment for your home today.

Energy Efficient

You’re not only covering your windows for décor, but you also want your treatments to offer privacy and protection of your home. Hunter Douglas combined both concepts when they developed their resourceful line of Honeycomb shades. Made with a cellular design, these shades provide layers of fabric coverage for your windows while maintaining a very stylish and elegant appearance. Considering these blinds are constructed with cell technology, they are highly energy efficient, blocking ample amounts of harmful UV rays from natural sunlight as well as acting as a great sound absorber for exterior noise. Honeycomb shades are a cordless window treatment, making them safe for smaller children and pets inside your home. If this shade sounds visually boring, check out the extensive colors and fabric options from Hunter Douglas and even consider pairing it with an interesting yet beneficial Top-Down/Bottom-Up design or a motorized operating system such as the Hunter Douglas PowerView™ Motorization.

Get Colorful

If you want your window treatments to stand alone and make a statement inside your home, choosing bright colors or bold prints is your best choice, and with both the Hunter Douglas Roller shade and Roman shade your options are vast. With their signature Roller shades, there are various fabric choices to choose from, including different textures and thickness depending on the type of coverage you’re seeking. These fabrics can be brightly colored or even printed with modern designs for a contemporary and stylish appearance. Since Roller shades are easy to operate with the touch of a hand, they are convenient for everyday use and high traffic living areas, and like most Hunter Douglas products, can be used with motorized operating systems for those hard to reach areas and high windows. Roman shades are another great choice if color and prints are important for your window treatments. With their graceful folds and classic design, Roman shades can stand alone and even become the highlight of a room, especially with modern prints and lively colors for added flair. Fabric is sold for these shades by the yard, giving you a perfect option to use excess or additional fabric for accent décor or even select a trim for your shades to give them even more personality.

Relaxation & Style

Even though you want your home to reflect your personal style, you don’t want to sacrifice comfort for fashion. If loud colors or elaborate fabric designs doesn’t fit your idea for window treatments, the Hunter Douglas line of Woven Wood shades offer a different approach to bold statements. This particular line of shades is hand woven and constructed from wood, reeds, and grasses that prove strong and durable. Because of their unique construction, these shades are very resilient and can withstand plenty of sunlight without fading or disfiguring the wood. Woven Wood shades offer a casual and comfortable style, with natural subtle colors and neutral tones for a relaxed atmosphere. If you’re concerned that these shades won’t protect your home from sunlight as efficiently as other Hunter Douglas fabric products, you can add a protective lining for additional defense from sunlight while also saving you energy costs. Amazing all by themselves, you always have the option of adding edge banding for a customized style to match the rest of your home’s décor, or even a valance to top off your treatments with style.
