Blinds are a common feature in many homes, so they can sometimes feel boring. However, with Hunter Douglas blinds, you can get beautiful custom blinds that are anything but boring. Not only will they look great, but they can also meet your functional needs to help you enjoy your home more. At All About the Windows, we can show you all the available options for blinds and help you decide which ones are right for your home. Stop by one of our showrooms today and let our friendly professionals help you determine whether vertical or horizontal blinds are better for your home.

Horizontal blinds are perfect for traditional windows that are taller than they are wide. Our blinds are made from durable materials, and you can choose horizontal blinds in wood, alternative wood, or aluminum. Our Parkland® Wood Blinds are perfect for creating a classic look in your home and giving your rooms a natural warmth. For bathrooms and kitchens, consider Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds, because they have a higher resistance to heat and humidity and are guaranteed to never bow, crack, or yellow. Everwood® blinds can be stained to mimic the look of real wood or painted in a solid color. Modern Precious Metals® Aluminum Blinds are a great way to bring a more modern look into your home. You can have them customized with several finishes, including matte and pearlescent, to create the perfect look in your home.

If you have wide windows or sliding glass doors, vertical blinds are a better option for you. In addition to the materials offered by horizontal blinds, vertical blinds are also offered in fabric and vinyl. Fabric blinds, like our Skyline® Gliding Window Panels, are perfect for adding extra light control to your home. Choose sheer fabrics to let more natural light into your home and reduce your reliance on artificial light. We also offer options for room-darkening fabrics to help keep out as much natural light as possible. Our Somner® blinds offer the largest collection of colors, fabrics, textures, and finishes, so you can get blinds that look amazing with your existing decor. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, our Vertical Solutions® blinds feature a wide variety of styles, colors, and patterns, and they are available in both fabric and vinyl.

Whatever you hope to get from your blinds, trust the experts at All About the Windows to find blinds that perfectly suit your needs.
