Rediscovering Roller Shades

Designer Roller Screen Shades in the Living Room

Designer Roller Screen Shades in the Living Room

Roller shades have long been popular, even from their early days of being vinyl room-darkeners. They have evolved over the years to become an option that won’t go out of style because they can match any décor. At Window Products in Connecticut, our trained consultants will be happy to help you decide if roller shades are right for your home.

New Design Improves Light Gap

The one drawback to roller shades is the light gap that comes from the sides of the shade when installed inside the window frame. One side of the roller shade has a clutch to raise and lower the shade. As a result, the fabric on the control side leaves a light gap for the clutch to operate. This year, however, Hunter Douglas has recognized the need to modernize and streamline this classic shade by changing the clutch to a new, ultra-slim system called custom clutch. This new custom clutch is attached to the bracket and allows the fabric of the shade to be cut larger for better coverage. Yes, there is still a small light gap on each side of the shade; however, it is minimal. Without question, today’s updated, spring-loaded roller shade by Hunter Douglas is setting a new standard for this time-tested classic. [Read more…]

Today’s Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb Shade

Duette® Duolite™ Honeycomb Shades

Duette® Duolite™ Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb shades (also called cellular blinds or shades) are one of the more popular window treatments used today in residential homes and businesses. With their honeycomb design, they offer great energy efficiency as well as sleek beauty. We invite you to visit our Window Products showroom in Branford to see and operate the new and improved Duette® Honeycomb Shade by Hunter Douglas.

Updates to Duette Honeycomb Shades

This year, Hunter Douglas has updated their Duette® honeycomb shade with a new headrail profile and finish, new hardware, and new fabrics. These updates give you a streamlined, clean appearance, with enhanced child and pet safety.

  • NEW Seamless Duolite™ Design – Duolite features two different fabrics for your single window opening. The top fabric panel will be sheer fabric that is fused together with a bottom fabric panel. The bottom panel may be semi-sheer, semi-opaque or opaque fabric. The Duolite feature offers a multitude of ways for you to manage your light and privacy needs
  • NEW Fabrics and Colors – The Duette honeycomb shade line has a total of 39 fabrics with over 420 colors. The new fabrics include Northwood, which has a rustic charm and clean, modern lines; Alexa, which has an organic feel; and a new exclusive Alustra® Duette® Architella® fabric called Jardin, which is created from textured yarns for that casual-chic look.
  • NEW Vertiglide™ Honeycomb Shade With PowerView™ – Vertiglide shades can be operated from side to side instead of up and down. They are ideal for glass sliding doors and large openings. New this year is the addition of PowerView Motorization. You can now use smart home technology to program or automatically adjust your Vertiglide with your remote or smart device.
  • NEW Honeycomb Shaped Headrail – The new headrail now reflects the honeycomb fabric shape, which allows the eye to follow the honeycomb design from the top of the shade to the bottom. Rails are textured and matte-finished and will color-coordinate with the shade fabric.
