There is a lot to consider when choosing a blind or shade. You are likely looking for blinds for one of the following reasons:
Decorating your room
Protecting floors & furnishings from sun damage
Blinds & shades can do all of these things and look great too! Some blinds are more suited to some of these jobs than others and that is where our Studio 222 Calgary specialist can help guide you through what will best meet your needs individually.
With the focus on Child & Pets Safety – industry standards are moving away from the use of cords of strings and they are shifting toward power lift systems and other innovative cordless lift systems. Power operating systems and automation are becoming much more accessible and affordable. Ask us about your options with different products!
The following is a list of common blinds & shades that will help you narrow down what you might like and what might work for you.
Roller Shades – With different opacities, roller shades provide not only privacy, but help keep out sun’s UV rays, protecting your furniture and floors. These simple, yet elegant shades are easy to operate, with a variety of opening systems for every area of the home.
Cellular Shades – An incredibly popular option, cellular shades offer a cellular ‘pocket’, helping keep the heat out in the summer and the warmth inside during the cold months. These blinds continue to dominate the market with their high energy efficiency, top down bottom up option, and their state of the art lift systems.
Dual Layered Shades – We use this name loosely to describe those with fabric layers, adding sophistication and style to all windows – Hunter Douglas Silhouettes, Pirouettes, and Banded Shades are just a few in this category. Superior fabrics, option of sheer view through layer, and no dusting required, make these a popular choice for new homes in Calgary.
Roman Shades – Offering the soft & tailored look of drapery, Roman Shades come with superior headrail and lift systems making them easier to install and operate. Paired with the popular top down bottom up system, these shades (also referred to as Roman Blinds, Vignette, Solera and many other names) will forever have their place.
Wood Blinds – Either faux wood or real wood, these blinds are always popular because of their tilting ability, allowing for maximum light control at different times of the day.
Aluminum Blinds – Classic and contemporary, these blinds offer superior light control like a wood blind, yet come in a variety of slat sizes, colours and lift systems and are very cost effective. The Hunter Douglas Magnaview product doubles the view through space making this a popular choice.
Vertical Blinds – A popular choice for sliding patio doors, verticals offer a side to side opening system for pass through. Panel track systems like Hunter Douglas Skyline offer a wider slat and a more contemporary look, while Cellulars are also available in a vertical opening system. Either way we offer whole home solutions to compliment all types of windows and patio doors.
Woven Woods – A type of roller blind, these offer light filtering options utilizing reed and wood like materials. Bamboo looks are popular for an airy light, window covering. These blinds are available in a variety of lift systems which are easy to operate and install.
Custom Drapery – A timeless, elegant option, drapery fabrics provide limitless custom options for the most discerning client. Sheer fabrics, light filtering, room darkening, lined, motorized, we can do it all.
