Hunter Douglas Parkland® Wood Blinds near Barrington, Illinois (IL)

Choose Your Materials

Blinds come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. Each option will add a different feel to your home. Our Hunter Douglas blinds are all created from high-quality materials and constructed to last. Adjust them to allow light while blocking harsh UV rays to prevent your flooring, furniture, paint, and artwork from fading. At night, simply twisting the slats provides you with privacy.

Select Neutral Colors

Selecting blinds in a neutral color allows them to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your décor, allowing for an easy flip from winter to spring. Neutral colors allow other elements, like artwork or furniture, to take center stage. To add some color, pair your neutral blinds with colorful drapery, adding depth and warmth.

Customize Them

Hunter Douglas window treatments are highly customizable. You can select the colors, slat sizes, and other elements that make the rooms darker or more private. For vertical blinds, you can choose fabric of varying opacities. Some customizations to consider include:

  • The slats for wood blinds or faux wood blinds can be 2 or 2½ inches wide. They're available in 50 colors, and you can add decorative tape.
  • The slat sizes for metal blinds are ½ inch, 1 inch, or 2 inches. They're available in over 70 colors and with decorative tapes.
  • Vanes for most vertical blinds are 3 ½ inches, but Skyline Panel-Track Blinds, ideal for large windows, can be either 11½ inches or 17 inches. Vertical blinds have up to 470 combinations of colors and materials.

Add Automation

Once you've selected your blinds, consider adding Hunter Douglas PowerView® Automation. Motorized slats twist to let in light, and vertical blinds can glide across the rail to open or close so you can let in the beautiful spring light. This option allows you to schedule the angle you want your blinds to be open at any given time of day, giving you the ultimate control over light and privacy.
