Light is an interior design element all its own. How light enters a room and its brightness can effect the mood of everyone in your home. Light can calm or soothe your spirits. The secret to mastering light control in your rooms is to choose the perfect window treatments based on your lighting needs. As your local Hunter Douglas dealer serving the Wilkes-Barre area, we carry a wide variety of blinds, shades, shadings and shutters especially designed for maximum light management.
Know Your Windows
The first step in choosing the right window treatment to control light is to first consider the location of your windows. The direction your windows face has a huge impact on direct sunlight.
- 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
- 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
