Hunter Douglas Luminette® Shades for Homes

Windows are one of the most beautiful, distinctive features of any home. They provide our spaces with natural light, and also provide the facades of our homes with striking design choices. One of the biggest shifts in modern architecture has been the embrace of windows. Older homes tended to have fewer and smaller windows, whereas newer homes love large, bright windows, and lots of them. While this might make these homes beautiful to look at, it can be difficult to manage the implications of these large windows. Not only can they let in incredible amounts of light, but they can also result in privacy concerns. So, what are you to do in this situation? Typical window treatments are often not well-equipped for these concerns, so it is time to think outside of the box.

Modern Roman Shades for Homes

The summer heat makes us all appreciate the shade outside and the shades filling our windows. However, that doesn’t mean that we necessarily find them appealing to look at. Sometimes we see those shades that were just there when we moved in and we don’t consider changing them because nowhere that we have ever lived has had nice or effective shades. I mean, they look like the ’90s and are dust-covered and falling apart. Some might call them vintage. Most would call them, “Meh.” We think it’s time for something better than “Meh.” Our team here at Takoy Windows by Design thinks that your next set of shades should be modern and chic. We think you’re ready for Hunter Douglas’s Vignette® Modern Roman Shades. Read More “Modern Roman Shades for Homes”

Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Shades for Homes

Our homes do a lot for us. They are the places where we rest, where we spend time with our friends and families, where we cook and eat, where we enjoy our hobbies and free time, and even the places where many of us work. Because of this, it’s safe to say that no two homes are alike, but it’s also safe to say that no two spaces in one home are alike, either. Your bedroom will be different from the bedrooms of your children, and those bedrooms will be different from your kitchen, bathrooms, and any other space in your home. Because of this, when it comes time to purchase window treatments, you likely will worry that you are going to have to find different ones for every room in your home. However, we are here to tell you about one of the most versatile window treatments on the market.

Vignette® Modern Roman Shades for Homes

A good classic is something that can do more than stand the test of time. Real classics are adaptable, and are flexible enough to adjust to the new needs of a different time and place than where they were created. The little black dress of the 1940’s looks very different than the little black dress of today. Similarly, today’s “classic cars” were once the cutting edge of automotive innovation. It’s nearly impossible to tell what has the staying power to become a true classic, but a few traits do tend to crop up again and again: simplicity, quality, and efficiency. A lot of the window treatments that we see used frequently in homes are classics, but we want to show you how one classic has evolved to fit our twenty-first century needs.

What are roman shades?

Roman shades are some of the most popular fabric window shades available on the market today. Roman shades are similar to other types of window shades, like roller shades, in that they are often made using only a single piece of fabric. But rather than having that fabric hang straight, as it might with a roller shade, the fabric of a roman shade is pleated or folded. When down, the pleats of a roman shade will resemble the soft, flowing fabric of a curtain or drape. And, when raised, the pleats of your roman shade will allow your shade to gently nest at the top of your window. This striking design and ease of use have paved the way for innovative twists on the roman shade concept, like Vignette® modern roman shades. Read More “Vignette® Modern Roman Shades for Homes”
