Before & After: From Bare To Beautiful With Custom Window Treatments

by Jocelyn

When you move into a new home, it’s best to live in the space for some time before buying expensive furnishings or making any permanent changes. You need adequate time to acquaint yourself with the room’s function, flow and lighting. Snap decorating judgements can often result in renovator’s or buyer’s remorse.

I recently had a client who did just that. He wanted to live in his home for a while before investing in custom window treatments. During his free in-home design consultation, we discussed his design preferences and unique functional needs. My client was searching for solutions for his guest bedroom, bathrooms and six very large windows in his great room. Light control and privacy were important considerations. The coverings also needed to be easy to care for and control – this was especially important for the hard-to-reach windows in the great room.

After exploring several options, I helped my client choose the following Hunter Douglas window treatments for his home:

Pirouette® shadings with PowerRise® motorized lifting system

Pirouette® shadings feature soft fabric vanes attached to a sheer backing that appear to be floating, drawing natural light into a room. When closed, they look just like a contemporary shade, which matched my client’s transitional decorating style perfectly.

For his hard-to-reach windows, we chose the Hunter Douglas PowerRise® motorized lifting system, which makes raising and lowering his new Pirouette® shadings effortless.

NewStyle™ hybrid shutters

NewStyle™ hybrid shutters were installed in the client’s guest bedroom and bathroom. These plantation-style shutters blend the beauty of real wood and advanced modern-day materials to create a stunning and durable window covering. The Finetech® Finish coating provides a lasting, micro-smooth satin finish that makes cleanup as simple as dusting with a soft, dry cloth.

My client was very happy with the look and function of his new window treatments and was especially satisfied with the motorized lifting system for his hard-to-reach windows. And the icing on the cake? All Hunter Douglas products are covered by a lifetime limited guarantee!
