What to consider when you are ready to make a purchase.
When I consider a purchase for my home’s interior, I take into account the following: design, brand, function, reliability, and price. It can be a struggle, because I want what I like! Quality in appearance, innovative style and longevity matter. It is important that what I select feature quality fabric or wood, have reliable function, classic texture, soft hues, and establish a stand alone style. Brand reputation is extremely important having established customer loyalty by building trust, reputation, reliability and quality customer support. When mentioning reliability, this would be the evaluation of product or brand known for consistent operation for years and features a Lifetime Warranty. Price, is such a personal decision, based upon product education, brand reputation, and the bottom line – personal investment interest.
When selecting the preferred product offering for Custom Drapery Designs, I took the time to evaluate the quality of the product, the innovative function, and the best customer support team. Hunter Douglas was the clear winner! Through the years, Custom Drapery Designs has established a reputable standing as a Centurion Showcase Hunter Douglas dealer. Our studio has shade sampling for better visual understanding of fashion, design and function. We have years of experience incorporating Hunter Douglas shades into our window covering designs. We take great pride in educating our clients on what Hunter Douglas as to offer. Each shade style is designed to enhance your windows and express your interior style. Whatever your style, there is a product for you.
There is innovation available like top-down/bottom-up, sheer shades with privacy, many fabric and wood textures, and dual operation shades that combine translucent with room-darkening.
Now that the product style has been determined, let’s explore lifting systems!
Pamper yourself with POWERVIEW MOTORIZATION – Customize your collection of rooms and scenes with the Hunter Douglas App, then use the scheduling feature to operate the shades whether you’re home or away. Today’s motorized shades are energy efficient and now easier than ever to manage and operate. The PowerView system smoothly integrates with other smart-home technology automatic operation as well. No more batteries! We can incorporate the rechargeable battery and recharging station for convenience and an Earth friendly solution.
There is a clean-line cord or wand ULTRAGLIDE – a convenient self-lowering system with retractable cord with wand combination. One click of the wand lowers the shade, and easily pull down to raise.
For a simple, no-cord solution, we recommend the LITERISE – this is a great solution for the baby’s room featuring no external cords for enhanced child safely. Simply manually push up to raise and pull down to lower.
The tried and true EASYRISE – We recommend this option for large shades that are wide or heavy. The continuous loop cord with tensioner displaces the weight and allows an easy pull cord option to raise and lower the shade.
Custom Drapery Designs focuses on the whole window design highlighting the ambiance, translucent outside view, energy efficiency and interior style. We look forward to the opportunity to recommend the right product to suit your need considering the optimal design, function and investment outlined.
