In this article, Rainbow Paint & Decorating – with a showroom conveniently located in Birmingham, Alabama (AL) – is here to list benefits of Duette® Honeycomb Shades for homes. We proudly offer a gorgeous selection of Hunter Douglas window treatments, as well as paint, wallpaper, and flooring.
Here in Birmingham, we get our fair share of sunshine and warm days, especially during the summer months. That’s why it’s important to keep home energy costs in mind. Duette® Honeycomb Shades from Hunter Douglas are an excellent window treatment choice for homes in Birmingham, AL, not only for their energy-efficiency but also for their style, convenience, and the unparalleled privacy they provide.
Introduced in 1985 by Hunter Douglas, Duette® was the world’s first ever energy-efficient window treatment. The unique design of tiny air pockets in a honeycomb pattern provided unmatched insulation between extreme temperatures outside and comfortable temperatures inside. After several redesigns over the years, Duette® remains the industry leader in energy-efficient window coverings. Also known as cellular shades, honeycomb shades are a great way to add style to your decor while cutting your home heating and cooling costs and providing unmatched energy savings.
Style & Customization
There is no limit when it comes to customizing Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Available in a wide array of colors and opacities for easy customization, it’s simple to create the perfect window covering to add the right amount of style to your decor. Duette® Honeycomb Shades can be created to custom fit windows of virtually any size and shape, from circles to angles, arches to French doors.
In the world we live in, convenience is key. Hunter Douglas offers several easy and convenient operating systems on Duette® Honeycomb Shades to make life easier. Exclusively from Hunter Douglas, the simple to use Top Down/Bottom Up operating system allows you to cover any portion of a window for privacy or glare control. Another new innovation from Hunter Douglas that is now available on Duette® is the PowerView® Motorization option. This system gives you the ability to schedule your shades to open and close themselves. PowerView® Motorization also allows you to control your shades from anywhere in your home with the wireless Pebble® Remote Control. Home or away, you can even use your smart device and the PowerView® App. We are proud to offer a wide selection of other Hunter Douglas operating systems, including vertical options to suit any specific design needs in your home.
If privacy is a concern, Duette® Shades are an excellent solution. As mentioned earlier, the Top Down/Bottom Up operating system is a unique operating system that allows you to leave part of the window covered and part open. Take for example your bedroom windows. Keep the bottom half down for maximum privacy while leaving the top half open to allow natural light in. When honeycomb shades are closed, no one can see in, if you’d like to let in the sunlight or enjoy an unobstructed view to the outdoors, simply lift the honeycomb shades.
