Stay Warm With Energy Efficient Window Coverings

Read Design

It is winter and the cold months are here to stay for a while. During these chilly months being bundled up next to a warm fire while you read a book or watch TV is the best feeling ever. But the worst feeling is trying to keep your energy bill down when on an average we spend 59% more on energy bills. But don't worry - Read Design has a solution for you with energy efficient window treatments from Hunter Douglas.

Cellular Shades and Roman Shades

Cellular Shades and Roman Shades are the top energy-saving window coverings. They both are very trendy and have plenty of factors that help you save money on your energy bills.

Cellular Shades, also referred to as Duette Honeycomb Shades by Hunter Douglas are the most energy efficient window coverings on the market. They are designed to have dead-air spaces which increase their insulation by trapping the warm air inside which helps to keep you warm all winter long. With the introduction of Hunter Douglas Architella Duettes, this got even better. The Architella Duette is a honeycomb within a honeycomb which gives 3 air pockets and keeps even more of the warmth inside. We recommend them to customers because of their superior craftsmanship, versatility, style and energy efficiency. People love that Architella Honeycomb Shades provide a high level of energy efficiency. The cell within a cell design reduces energy loss up to 40% at the windows. Duette Honeycomb Shades are very versatile window coverings with a variety of fabric and colors to choose from. They offer various degrees of light filtering options including sheer, light filtering, and room darkening. This also helps with privacy and insulation. Duette Honeycombs can also be made in specialty shapes including arches and skylights. There are a number of lift options including UltraGlide retractable cord, LiteRise cordless, or can be motorized with Hunter Douglas PowerView Motorization making them easy to open and close as well as child safe.

The New Trielle Window Shades – Perfect for Dallas - Fort Worth

The newest innovation in the Duette Architella line is the Trielle. The new style, with 6 layers of fabric, 5 insulating air pockets and largest 1 1/2″ pleat size, delivers 20% more energy efficiency than the original Architella Shades. Considering that 50% of heating and air conditioning is lost through the windows, having high energy efficient window treatments can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs.

Roman Shades

Roman Shades are similar to cellular shades and are one of the most popular window coverings today .  They are both functional and beautiful And they offer great energy efficiency.  Hunter Douglas has the Vignette Modern Roman Shades and the Solera Soft Shades to choose from.  The both come in a variety of colors and textures that add beauty to your home   Roman Shades can also trap in the warmth which can save you money on your electric bill.  Also , line the Duette Honeycomb Shades, Roman Shades come in various degrees of light filtering options for privacy and light control.  They also have a number of lift options to choose from.

Welcome To The World Of Exotic Natural Woven Woods

Read Design

What inspires you?  Innovation, Light, Texture, Color, or all of the above?

Beauty

Natural warmth and beauty. Crafted from natural woods, reeds, bamboo and grassed, Hunter Douglas Provenance Woven Wood Shades are attractive when lowered or when raised as they form even, overlapping folds. Decorative edge banding and style options for valances let you create tasteful, custom window fashions with ease.

Texture and Color

Grasses, Wood, Bamboo. Hunter Douglas has many different styles to choose from. Natural products have inherent qualities that add to the beauty of the shade. Hunter Douglas construction and specialized weaving techniques keep these shades beautiful and durable for years to come. Depending on your style, we can find a woven fabric that will work for your unique situation along with the perfect color that will showcase your room and compliment you design.

Light

Turn the sheerest sheer fabric into a Room Darkening Shade with Hunter Douglas' Independent Operable Liner. This liner provides optimal light control and privacy when and how you need it. 

Innovative Operating Systems

The hallmark of every Hunter Douglas Provenance Shade is the ingenuity that enhances both the performance and the look of your shades. Head rails are the unseen heroes of your woven wood shades. Select the head rail style that provides the lifting system and options that work best for your lifestyle. You can choose the LiteRise (cordless), UltraGlide (retractable cord), EasyRise (cordloop) or the new PowerView Motorization Lift System.

Woven Wood Shades are great for any Room in Your Home.

We recently helped a customer in Prosper, Texas who wanted a new look in a new home they had just purchased. We suggested a beautiful Provenance Woven Shade because the subtle design element didn't take away from the other focal points in the room. When raised, the soft folds made a beautiful valance that framed the window and pulled the outdoors in. When lowered, not only did they provide privacy, but also added warmth and charm to the room.

Jeff at Read Design Southlake helped a customer that needed to cover her French Doors. Provenance Woven Woods were the perfect solution. They chose a neutral white fabric with a texture that coordinated wonderfully. Privacy and direct sunlight were not an issue due to the covered patio, so we didn't use a liner. This way the natural fibers create a unique design with a beauty that will last a lifetime.

Client Work: Soft Luminette Window Treatments For North Dallas Home

Read Design

Luminette_shades-North-Dallas.jpg

Our Customer in Dallas, Texas bought a 1960’s ranch home in the North Dallas area. They did a lot of renovations to the Master Bedroom and Master Bath. They raised the ceiling and put in new larger windows. The customer wanted a soft treatment where she could keep the windows covered but could have light filtering in. The perfect solution was Hunter Douglas Luminette in an Alustra Collection fabric. This is a very sophisticated window treatment with an elegant fabric and the beautiful ripple fold top easily fits her transitional style. She can close the fabric vanes for privacy or keep them open for more natural light and a view. She used the split stack option so when she wants an unobstructed view, the panels will move to either side of the windows to frame them.

The vertical lines help draw the eyes upward, enhancing the tall ceilings. The shades by themselves are intended to give a finished look, however, we want to add some more color and pattern so we will be adding drapery panels and bedding to finish out the room.

Client Work: Before & After Kitchen Redesign - Frisco, TX

Read Design

See how you can change a look with paint, molding, tile back splash and new hardware!

This customer in the Del Webb community in Frisco, Texas bought a new home. She loved the location and home but not so much the kitchen. So after she closed on the home, we went in and added trim and moldings. The cabinets were painted and a new tile back splash and new hardware were installed. It does not look like the same kitchen, but it is! For window treatments we used hunter Douglas Duette Architella shades in Batiste textured fabric which works beautifully with the look she wants. She can open the shades with the touch of her hand using the LiteRise operating system or can keep them closed and still get wonderful filtered light.
