Choosing Among Architella, Applause and Duette Shades

Hunter Douglas Architella Honeycomb ShadesWe’re often asked, “Which honeycomb shades should I choose, Architella, Duette or Applause?” At Windo VanGo serving Baltimore, our trained consultants can help you choose the honeycomb shade that is best for your style, needs, and budget. Let’s take a look at the most popular styles: Duette, Applause, and Architella.

Duette Honeycomb Shades

If you are looking for a good energy-efficient window shade with a wider variety of fabrics, pleat sizes, and color selection, choose Duette honeycomb shades. They continue to be the market leader across the nation and are perfect for specialty shaped windows.

Applause Honeycomb Shades

Applause has a Vintage line that is made from 40% recycled fibers. Choose Applause if you are looking for energy savings at an affordable price but still want the quality of the Hunter Douglas brand.

Architella Honeycomb Shades

Architella honeycomb shades have the highest level of energy efficiency in a window treatment as well as the best protection from UV rays. The collection also offers more color selection with a richer appearance and can stand up better against harsh sunlight. Ask about the tax credit available on these shades!

Top-Down/Bottom-Up Operating Options

Whether you choose Duette, Applause, or Architella, a popular operating feature is the top-down/bottom-up operating system. The top-down/bottom-up cellular shade lets you move the top or bottom of the shade up or down independently. This gives you more precise control over light and privacy; it also gives your room a uniquely open feel.

Add motorization options to any Hunter Douglas honeycomb shades for more convenience. We offer the latest in shade motorization, including the PowerRise® with Platinum™ Technology—it’s a battery-powered system that doesn’t need any additional wiring.

Pet and Child Safety With Your Honeycomb Shades

Safety is top of mind with all our window treatment products. For enhanced pet and child safety, our Honeycomb shades are available with cordless lifting systems, such as UltraGlide’s retractable cord, LiteRise®, and EasyRise™ with cord tensioner for enhanced child and pet safety.

Honeycomb Shades Are Guaranteed

Whichever shade you choose, you can buy with confidence because all of our honeycomb shade options are backed by the Hunter Douglas Lifetime Guarantee and Right Choice Promise. Our honeycomb shades come in a variety of styles with unique pleat sizes and a range of opacities to help you control light and privacy.
