Custom DraperyCustom made draperies and top treatments allow you to add a personal touch to your windows, especially when paired with blinds and shades. Blinds and shades from Hunter Douglas are beautiful, energy efficient and functional. The addition of draperies or soft treatments adds warmth and depth to any room. At The Blind Guy serving East Bay, we offer custom drapery services as well as the complete Hunter Douglas line. Here are a few ideas on how to pair draperies and top treatments with various Hunter Douglas window treatments.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades with Drapery

Honeycomb shades provide a clean appearance in your window and are the most energy efficient hard window treatment on the market today.

  • Add draperies or drapery panels to honeycomb shades mounted inside the window frame to stop light coming in from the sides of the shade.
  • Add draperies or drapery panels to honeycomb shades mounted on the outside of your window to cover the hard sidelines of the shade and create a more refined appearance.
  • Add a fabric cornice, valance or top treatment will cover the headrail and provide a more finished look.

Provenance Woven Wood Shades with Drapery

Woven wood shades are made from natural woods, reeds, bamboo and grasses that allow light to softly filter into the room. The natural look of woven wood shades provides casual ambiance that goes with any decor.

  • Add a valance above your woven wood shades to highlight the color scheme in your room.
  • Add draperies to the sides of woven wood shades that you can close when the sun is intense or you want full privacy.
  • Select neutral colors and patterns to complement the natural beauty of woven wood shades.

Parkland® Wood Blinds with Drapery

People love the beauty of natural wood blinds. With adjustable louvers, wood blinds can be tilted to allow as much light as you would like in the room. Their somewhat heavy appearance, though, can come off looking stark.

  • Add drapery panels in any color, style, texture or pattern to highlight your wood blinds.
  • Add a fabric top treatment to soften the look of your windows and accent the natural wood blinds.
  • Add a wood cornice to blend your wood blinds with any home décor.
