The benefit of shades in the summertime is that it allows you to keep your space cool and make life easier for your A/C, while at the same time allowing a soft, pleasant light to filter into your home. In the winter, it makes sense to use thick blinds to help keep out the cold, but come summer, you definitely want to use the light to your advantage without completely overheating your home. The trick to accomplishing this: custom blinds!
If you have a rectangular door leading out to your yard or patio, then Hunter Douglas has made the perfect shades for you: The Luminette Shear shade. These sexy shades fit perfectly over sliding glass doors and combine soft fabric veins with shear facings for ultimate control. Definitely worth considering to perfect the style in your home.
Another great option that we often recommend is Honeycomb Shades: these shades are crafted from ultramodern cellular textiles and work very well in a sophisticated office setting. Furthermore, they can be controlled using Hunter Douglas’ proprietary Invisilift technology, which creates the effect that the shades are free floating in your windowsill.
