Benefits of Custom Window Treatments from Hunter Douglas

Many people spend thousands to replace windows to get top-quality energy efficiency and beauty, but window treatments are an afterthought. When you realize you need them, most head to big box stores to purchase whatever in-stock treatments are available. At Advanced Window Fashions, we want you to know the benefits of purchasing customer Hunter Douglas window treatments.

Exact Measurements

When you buy blinds or shades from a mass retailer you take your measurements from home and look for the closest match. Pro tip: there is no such thing as a “standard” sized window. When you get custom window treatments, a professional measure your windows, and your window treatments are made to those exact specifications for a perfect fit.

Advantage of Professional Touch

Deciding to go with custom window treatments means working one-on-one with a window treatment expert who also has interior design knowledge. We will work with your home’s style to suggest window treatments that complement your window shapes and current home decor. We can answer all your questions regarding light control and energy efficiency of specific treatments and can give you information about all your options. These are advantages you simply cannot get when buying pre-made window coverings from a retail store.

Premium Quality & Performance

We have all heard the term “You get what you pay for,” and it’s true when purchasing coverings for your windows. The shades you buy ready-made at retailers are inexpensive for a reason. They break much more easily, and if it’s been more than 30 days since you purchased you likely will not have any warranty for replacement. Hunter Douglas window treatments come with a lifetime guarantee, and when you pay for custom treatments, you’re paying for higher quality materials and workmanship. The linings for curtains or drapes will be professionally stitched, which means straight seams and no fraying at the ends.

Personalized Fabric and Material

Ready-made window treatments are available in a limited number of fabrics and other materials. If you love the look of dark wood blinds, you may be hard-pressed to find exactly what you are looking for in a store. Your option will be to purchase in-stock merchandise and modify it yourself. At best, you end up with a result that you dislike. At worst, you damage the window coverings and void any warranty.

Custom Colors & Details

Just as you pick your fabric and material, custom window coverings allow you to choose the colors you want, as well. If you love a particular shade of blue or purple, for example, our professional design staff can show you all your options. You can dye fabric yourself, but you won’t get the same high-end finish that you will from professional products.

The same is true for custom hardware and trims. Ready-made hardware is generally very generic looking, and you must add any custom trims yourself after purchase. The Alustra Collection from Hunter Douglas adds a subtle metallic sheen to hardware for a superior-looking finish.
