Hands-Free Blinds with PowerView® Automation

Blinds are one of the most popular window treatments. They offer variable light control by simply tilting the slats. Window blinds are available in various materials, with many slat sizes and color options. Wood blinds add natural warmth and character and have a defined grain and texture. Parkland® Wood Blinds offer natural insulation and are available in a vast selection of stains and solid paint colors. Hunter Douglas uses wood harvested from sustainable forests and donates to the Arbor Day Foundation with every Parkland® blinds purchase. Faux wood blinds are a good option if you want the appearance of wood without the upkeep. EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds are easy to clean and can withstand exposure to heat and humidity without being damaged. You can select from many solid colors and TruGrain® finishes that provide an incredibly realistic stain-like finish.

Cordless options are available to increase the safety of your young children and pets. You can also choose PowerView® Automation. This motorized system connects to your home’s Wi-Fi and allows you to operate your blinds with your voice, mobile device, or a handheld remote.

Our Variety of Shades

Shades are simple and stylish and come in many styles, including Roman and cellular shades. Shades provide better privacy than blinds as they do not have gaps between components. Cellular shades offer an attractive, energy-efficient solution for your windows. Duette® Honeycomb Shades in the industry’s most comprehensive selection of pleat sizes, colors, opacities, and textures. Duette® shades also absorb up to 70% of outside noise to create a more tranquil environment inside your home.

Vignette® Modern Roman Shades offer consistent folds and no exposed rear cords for an uncluttered aesthetic. Vignette® shades are available in a range of opacities from sheer to room-darkening. Customize your shades with various colors and textures, including linens and tweeds. You can choose from two styles, including a rolling style with a 4” full fold or 6” flat fold, and rolls up neatly into a sleek headrail, and a stacking style with a 4” full fold that stacks beneath a slim, low-profile headrail. For windows where you’d like both a sheer fabric and an opaque fabric, Duolite® shades combine a sheer front fabric and an opaque liner for two shades on a single roll.
