When you move into a new home it is important to have modern window treatments that will give you privacy.The right drapery treatment, shades, or shutters can turn any window into a wonderful focal point.

Window treatments are more than a dressing for a window frame.  They need to work double duty by beautifying your space as well as providing privacy.  An interior designer can help you with the many choices available. Here are some of the many options from Hunter Douglas.

One of the modern trends in window treatments is shades.  They now come in different fabrics and different styles.

Solar shades that you can see thru while they block the sun are pretty and practical, too.  They come in different shades of neutral colors.

There are also black out roller shades which are good to be used in bedrooms where you want it as dark as possible.

Motorized shades do away with the mess of cords and the bother of blind rods. They also make managing natural light easy and safe.

In places like Texas and Florida where the sun can be intense, consumers sometimes don't realize that they need window treatments to protect their investment in their pretty hardwood floors, their furniture and rugs and their artwork.  

Some window treatments can be too heavy to lift or even to pull back because of the required width of coverage.  An interior designer can help you solve this problem.

If you want to let natural light come into your room as much as possible, but don't want to allow people who are passing by to look into your home, than you need something that is just right on your windows. You need light but you also need privacy.

 A professional interior designer may show you some different window products that do this such as Silhouettes or Duettes by Hunter Douglas.  They will have samples of the various colors and fabrics.  They may also show you wood blinds, aluminum horizontal blinds, wood shutters, cellular shades, vignettes, Roman shades and a variety of other window products.
