The Lifters Category

Shades are considered “lifters,” meaning that they either raise or lower to provide full view-through to the outside or privacy. Shades come in a large color palette and in the full range of opacities, from light-filtering to blackout. The Hunter Douglas shade collection includes Roman shades, woven wood shades, roller or screen shades, and honeycomb or cellular shades.

The Tilters Category

Blinds are considered “tilters,” meaning that, although they can be lifted, usually, just their slats are manipulated—tilted either open or closed, to provide the right amount of light and privacy desired. They add a level of interest at the window and come in aluminum, wood, and vinyl, as well as a variety of paint stains and slat sizes. The Hunter Douglas blind collection includes products made from aluminum, wood, faux wood, and poly materials.
