Window Treatment Options to Consider

Alustra® Woven Textures® with Top-Down/Bottom-Up Feature

When you buy window coverings, you’re not just buying the product—you’re also buying the way it operates. All window coverings come with standard operating systems that could be the perfect solution for your needs, but you should be aware of the many choices available when you purchase Hunter Douglas products. To see them in action—and to find out more about each system—speak with a trained consultant at Altra Home Décor here in Phoenix today.

Operating Shades From the Top, the Bottom, or Both

When you are looking for privacy but also want to have natural light or a full view to the outside, you have options with Hunter Douglas Honeycomb shades, Roman Shades, Silhouette® Privacy Sheers, and more. You can pick from:

  • Traditional bottom-up lifting, which allows the light come in from bottom with privacy on top.
  • Top-down operation, which allows light to come in on top with privacy on the bottom.
  •  Top-down/bottom-up operating, which allows you to lower the top and raise the bottom at the same time or independently.

How to Choose the Right Option

Selecting the right lifting options depends on the location of your windows. Top-down is a great solution for a bedroom window that is on the street side—for example, if you don’t want people directly looking in, but you want natural light coming in. Bottom-up is a must if you have pets, and top-down/bottom-up is the ultimate in versatility to give you the best of all worlds—it’s perfect for any room in your home.

Operating Controls for Your Shades

  • PowerView® motorization—a wireless operating system that can be used with a PowerView® Pebble® remote or with your mobile device or tablet.
  • LiteRise®— a cordless system that lets you gently raise and lower your shades with your hand.
  • UltraGlide®—a retractable cord system that lets you raise and lower your shades with no ugly, dangling external cords.

So when you are looking for ultimate in privacy and light control, look to Hunter Douglas for your window treatment needs.
