Single or Dual Functioning Window Treatments Tailor Light for Your Home

Just as every room in your home has different uses to suit the many aspects of your life, so should your window coverings. Do you need single or dual functioning window treatments?  With such a range in fabrics and function, let’s take a look at the dramatic effect they can have on the rooms in your home.


Complementary Styling

Each room in your home has its own energy, style and function. The window coverings you put into those rooms add benefits and qualities to improve your lifestyle. What works in one room may not be the best choice for another room – or even a shared space. Knowing this, Hunter Douglas window treatments cater to your styling by offering the Counterparts Program, which allows you to select coordinating fabrics across different types of window treatments so you receive beautiful styling with the exact function that suits your home and your lifestyle.


Single Functioning Shades:

The beauty of simplistic design comes with the ease and amazing benefits of single functioning shades. Simply put, these window coverings offer style and benefits that cover your windows when you need light control and privacy, with levels of energy efficiency and UV protection. Single functioning shades adjust and operate easily, offering control at the tips of your fingers for opening and closing, all the way or with a partial adjustment. The operating systems allow you to choose the perfect function for your windows, including features like top/down, bottom/up.

Convenient Features

Many of our clients enjoy single functioning shades in children’s bedrooms and guest rooms. Ease of operation means child safe protection, along with simplistic operation for someone wanting to adjust for levels of daylight. Single functioning shades are a wonderful addition to bathrooms for high levels of privacy, while the quick adjustment means you can have full light when you need it. From the classic beauty of roman shades to the energy efficiency of honeycombs, single functioning shades will offer you heightened styling with amazing benefits for light control, privacy, energy efficiency and UV protection.


Dual Functioning Window Treatments

Complexity of design offers you window coverings for rooms that deserve dramatic atmosphere and high quality function.  The amazing benefits of dual functioning shades offer light control, privacy, energy efficiency and UV protection in a whole new way. These window treatments have multiple layers of presentation for different times of the day and various functions of the room they highlight. Pirouette window shadings and Silhouette window shadings are two of our dual functioning shades that offer you these amazing features of versatility. Perfect window coverings for large windows, these shadings allow you to display ultimate light control and beauty in great rooms, living rooms, family and media rooms.  Let’s look a little closer at the features that will meet your home’s needs and improve the styling of the rooms your family is in the most.

The Perfect Backdrop

Often times chosen for windows that boast incredible views of your picturesque landscape,  dual functioning shades are perfect when you want to enjoy the view without the harsh rays of the sun. Diminished glare, even when adjusted to offer daylighting, your home is filled with soft, filtered light.


Versatility of Design

Commonly referred to as ‘Soft Shutters’, Pirouette window treatments provide ultimate view-through. Your windows are highlighted with the beautiful styling of complementary fabric of the slats, while the sheer backing reflects the California sunlight. Simple adjustments of these fabric slats allow you to create just the right mood for any time of the day and into the evening. Fully closed, dual functioning shades can provide the flowing look of roman shades, while continuing to provide you with the sought after benefits of window treatments.


Beautiful in Any Room

Pirouette window shadings and Silhouette window shadings provide the room-darkening benefits you may need for watching a movie without glare, or the cool, calm of a quiet evening all to yourself. With the newest addition to Silhouette window shadings, A Deux, the blackout option for these window treatments means that these shadings are a perfect addition in any room. The ability of both these shades to offer room-darkening means that they will also provide amazing benefits for your master bedroom suite.
