Be the Master of Light in Your Home

Light Controlling Window Coverings, BaltimoreLight is sometimes an overlooked element of interior design, but it shouldn’t be. Light changes the mood of a room, and controlling light helps you manage the comfort level of brightness of your room throughout the day. The right window coverings give you ultimate control over natural light. Stop by our showroom in Marriottsville, serving the Baltimore area, to see full size displays of our light controlling window fashions.

To choose the best window coverings to control light in your home, first consider factors that impact direct and indirect light. Which direction do your windows face? Follow these guidelines to make sure you have the right window covering in each room:

  • North facing windows – tend to be cold and energy-efficient window treatments like Duette® Architella Honeycomb Shades
  • South facing windows – tend to be warm and strong year-round and light-diffusing window treatments like Silhouette, Luminette or Pirouette shadings
  • East facing windows – tend to have bright warm morning light and window treatments that block UV rays like Silhouette and Duette honeycomb shades
  • West facing windows – tend to have bright afternoons and both light control and light diffusing such as Heritance Shutters, Parkland Wood Blinds or Designer Roller Shades

As your local Hunter Douglas dealer, we carry a wide variety of blinds, shades, shadings and shutters especially designed for maximum light management.
