Your home is the biggest investment you can make. So when you make improvements to it, try to get the best for your buck. Anytime you can reduce your household expenses and add value to your home, do it.

Custom blinds, shades, shutters, draperies, sheers, and curtains will not only reduce your energy bill, but they will add a unique look that will give your home your own style. Off-the-shelf window treatments are limited in colors, styles, sizes, textures, and functions.

At Window Products serving Connecticut, we offer a wide variety of window coverings that can increase the value and beauty of your home while also helping to cut your energy bills. Our design consultants and professionally trained and certified installers will give your windows perfect function, as well as a beautiful finished look.

Save Money With Custom Treatments

silhouette_ultraglide2_livingroom_2Because as much as 50% of a home’s heating and cooling can be lost through the window, Hunter Douglas, the industry leader in custom window treatments, considers how their products can contribute to saving energy at the window.

architella_closed_17As your local Hunter Douglas gallery, we carry the exclusive Duette® Architella® honeycomb shade. With its honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb construction, this is the most energy-efficient shade on the market today.

Hunter Douglas works to incorporate the following into all of their products:
Insulation – reduce energy consumption and create a more comfortable living area – saving on heat and cooling costs.

  • Daylight – transform natural light, reducing the need for other artificial lighting and saving energy
  • Solar Heat – harness solar heat in the winter and minimize it in the summer.

The Right Fit

Too many times, people measure their windows and rush off to purchase an “off the shelf” blind, only to find that it doesn’t actually fit. That is because window openings are not always perfectly square. Custom shaped window are an even greater challenge.

When a professional installer measures your windows, he or she will take three measurements – bottom, middle, and top. This will ensure that your new window treatment will fit perfectly. They will also determine which mounting option (inside or outside) is best.

  • Inside mount – Mounting inside the window offers more insulation; however, there may be light gaps on either side.
  • Outside mount – Mounting outside the window adds additional inches beyond the opening and/or molding to eliminate the light gap altogether.

Enhance Your Décor With Custom Window Treatments

With custom window treatments, the possibilities are endless. You can mix and match fabrics, textures, colors, and options. Product selection can be as unique as your decorating style. Hunter Douglas has all the products to transform any window into a work of art, including the exclusive Alustra® Collection, which defines beauty and the quintessence of a home.
