Horizontal blinds are one of the most popular types of window treatments because they are both attractive and functional. They can be drawn to the top of the window for a completely unobstructed view, lowered with the slats open for filtered light, or closed completely for a darker room and privacy. And with custom Hunter Douglas blinds from Red Star Paint and Decorating Center, you can create a horizontal blind to fit almost any window in your home.
Types of Horizontal Blinds
Wood blinds – Made from 100% basswood or abachi, wood horizontal blinds will add warmth and texture to your room. Have your blinds stained to enjoy the natural beauty of the wood grain or painted to match your window trim.
Alternative wood blinds – These custom blinds provide the look of hardwood but are more cost-effective and can be used in rooms with high heat and humidity, unlike real wood blinds.
Aluminum blinds – Aluminum blinds offer the greatest variety of all of the horizontal blinds. They are available with slats ranging from ½ inch to 2 inches in width and come in a wide variety of different colors.
All Hunter Douglas horizontal blinds come standard with a cordlock system that easily raises and lowers the blinds and tilts the slats with two sets of easy-to-use cords. Upgraded systems include a retractable cord, cordless options, and motorization.
Hunter Douglas stands behind their American-made window treatments and offers a limited lifetime guarantee on all of their products. And when you purchase them from Red Star Paint and Decorating Center, you can rest assured that your windows will be precisely measured and your blinds, shades, or shutters will be professionally installed.
