They are made from quality materials tested and approved by the quality control department to ensure that they meet the diverse clientele needs. Here are some window treatment tips from the experts to help homeowners find the right one for your bay windows and other unique areas in the house.

Amount of Light Needed

Choose Hunter Douglas window treatments that allow natural light to illuminate the areas within your home. Vertical blinds are an ideal treatment for living rooms, allow optimal natural light to penetrate while simultaneously serving as subtle privacy. The vertical blinds include Skyline® Gliding Window Panels, The Alustra® Collection of Skyline® Gliding Window Panels, Cadence® Soft Vertical Blinds, Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds, and Vertical Solutions® Vertical Blinds.

Level of Privacy

It is recommended to install hard window treatment, such as a quality Hunter Douglas cellular shade, Silhouette®, Luminette®, Pirouette®, or Nantucket™. This treatment is tailored to let in much light and prevent intrusion of privacy. The honeycomb design used to construct this type of shade prevents heat loss as it keeps the cold out of the room.


Bedrooms benefit from natural light, and so it is advised to choose a window treatment that allows natural light to illuminate the rooms without compromising privacy. Consider purchasing opaque Architella Duette honeycomb Hunter Douglas blinds. This keeps too much light from filtering in, and since they are energy efficient, they help keep your bedroom warm all winter.


It is wise to choose a window treatment that can last for years without showing signs of wear to save money and time on new purchases. Take the time to compare and contrast the durability of each window treatment before making the final decision.

Automation and Technology

With motorized window treatment options that can be controlled from your iPhone or Android, also compatible with Nest, Speedwell Design Center offers a technological alternative to traditional window replacements. This is a safer, more efficient option, as fully enclosed motorized blinds encapsulate treatment. This reduces dust and eliminates hazardous cords, creating a more child and pet-friendly home. Purchase Hunter Douglas window treatments from an accredited supplier, such as Speedwell Design Center in Morristown, to get value for your investment. You can choose from sheers and shading, cellular shades, roman shades, roller shades, woven wood, shutters, vertical blinds, or horizontal blinds. Check the color and design of the treatment to be sure that it complements the flooring in the room. Photo Credit: joel
