Options And Upgrades

Privacy With A View


The Top-Down/Bottom-Up feature offers a more versatile approach to light control. Open from the top, from the bottom, or find somewhere in-between–for the perfect balance of privacy and light.

Even Greater Efficiency

Even Greater Efficiency

Our double-honeycomb construction traps air even more efficiently than our single honeycomb by sandwiching two honeycomb cells between your room and the window.

Reduce Outside Noise


Improve your room’s acoustics while reducing the intensity of outside sound. It starts at the windows.

The degree of sound control will depend on the fabric you choose, so if this is an important feature to you, be sure to discuss it with your sales expert.

Energy Efficiency 


At Hunter Douglas, we're an industry leader in making a big energy savings difference at the window. In 1985, we invented the highly energy-efficient Duette® honeycomb shades in response to the energy crisis of the late 1970s. Our latest innovation is the Duette Architella® honeycomb shades featuring a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design for even greater energy efficiency. Today, we continue to think about the impact all of our window fashions can make. Without energy-efficient window treatments, as much as 50% of a home's heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows.

Hunter Douglas products help conserve energy at the window in many important ways:



In winter months, your home heating escapes to the outdoors through your windows while in the summertime, the outside heat flows into your home through these same windows. With window treatments that provide insulation, you can reduce energy consumption, save on heating and cooling costs, and create a more comfortable atmosphere.

Solar Heat Control

Solar Heat Control

The warmth provided by the sun, its solar energy, may be desirable during the winter to help heat your home, but in the summer, it can make a room overly hot and uncomfortable—driving up air conditioning costs. Many Hunter Douglas window fashions help to control solar heat by allowing it into your home in the winter and minimizing the amount that comes in during the summer.


Daylighting is the practice of lighting rooms with natural light rather than artificial light. By drawing natural light into a room many of our window treatments reduce the need for other types of lighting, thereby reducing your energy use.

Saving Energy At The Window

5 Tips For Saving Energy At The Window

  • Ensure your windows and doors are properly weather-stripped.

  • Caulk around basement and storm windows.

  • When heating or cooling, keep windows locked.

  • Open your window coverings during sunny winter days to catch free solar heat then close them at night to keep that heat in.

  • Close your window coverings during summer days to keep the heat out.
