When it comes to window shades, curtains and roller blinds are two of the most popular options. While you can choose from a wide variety of colours, patterns and textures for your curtains, the TwistTM Shades offer a lot more versatility. They come in a wide range of colours, styles and designs, which makes them an excellent choice for almost any room in your home.
Curtains are perfect for adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to any room, but they also have their limitations. For instance, they will not be able to offer privacy when closed or block out sunlight during the day. This is where TwistTM Shades come into play. Roller blinds are made up of slats that can be adjusted to cover up windows completely or partially based on your requirement. They also allow you to adjust their position easily by using a corded mechanism or remote control (in case you have electric blinds).
TwistTM Shades are an excellent choice for people who are looking for a clean and modern look. They come in a variety of colours, sizes and materials, so there is something that will suit every style and budget. They can be used as a decorative element in your living room, dining room or bedroom.
As compared to curtains, TwistTM Shades are more durable and offer better value for money. The fabric used for making them is usually thicker than the one used for curtains, which means they will last longer without fading or fraying.
Another advantage of TwistTM Shades is that they don't require any special hardware or tools to install them on your windows. You just have to hang them from the top rod with the help of brackets and screws provided by the manufacturer.
TwistTM Shades also offer better privacy than curtains because they are able to block out more light than normal regular curtains do; however, this depends on the type of material used in manufacturing them.
It is easier to see through the loosely hung fabric sheets, aka curtains, to see your home interiors. A snug fit TwistTM Shades is made by combining sheer and solid bands of fabric in one shade; therefore, your house will remain private.
Light controlling fabrics
In addition to translucent and dim-out fabrics, TwistTM Shades are available in either 7.5cm solid bandwidth or 4.5cm to 5cm sheer bandwidth, depending on the fabric. There are a variety of fabrics designs & colours available with TwistTM Shades.

Hunter Douglas offers a full line of interior decoration products that are designed to help you achieve your vision for the space. Whether it’s curtains or shades, we have something for everyone!
TwistTM Shades is the latest offering from the industry leader in window treatments – Hunter Douglas. Made up of a combination of sheer and solid fabric bands, TwistTM Shades is the perfect blend of view-through, light control, and privacy.
It fits any décor and blends with existing Hunter Douglas products. Unlike conventional blinds that are a single fabric roll, TwistTM Shades starts with a front panel of solid fabric flanked by two panels of sheer fabrics.
This gives it a unique look and capabilities unmatched by conventional window treatments. The broader choice allows you to use it as a room divider or as decoration in itself. Let’s take a look at certain positions of TwistTM Shades that facilitate better view, privacy, and light control.
TwistTM Shades Position for Privacy, Light Control, and Better View
When it comes to window coverings, you want them to have the flexibility to fit your lifestyle, not the other way around. The unique design of TwistTM Shades allows you to control your view, privacy, and light as needed with certain unique position preferences as stated below:
01. Open Position
When the sheer fabric bands align with each other, you'll get a view-through that provides soft filtered light. It's perfect for letting in just the right amount of sunlight on a lazy Sunday morning or providing privacy from passers-by without compromising style.
02. Closed Position
When the sheer bands align with the solid fabric bands, they block out all light and provide complete privacy. Perfect for creating an intimate atmosphere when it's time to cuddle up with your favorite movie on Netflix or creating a cozy space before falling asleep at night.
03. Raised Position
To enjoy a full view through your window, simply raise the shades so that all of the bands are positioned at the top of your window. They can be aligned in either the open position or closed position for raised views.
Ways To Operate Our TwistTM Shades
The control system you choose for your TwistTM Shades will impact how you operate them. With two major options, we're confident you'll find the one that fits your needs and lifestyle.
01. Custom Clutch - Though it's our standard operating system, this is anything but basic. Our custom clutch is designed to enhance child safety by creating a tension system that will keep your shades in place so little hands won't be able to accidentally raise or lower them.
02. PowerView® Automation - Take convenience and sophistication to the next level with PowerView® Automation, a wireless operating system that gives you the power to control or schedule your TwistTM Shades via remote control or through an app on your smartphone.
For the TwistTM shade, we offer a horizontal orientation only.
If the shades are open, the aligned fabric provides a view-through filter that eliminates harsh light. This soft filtered light provides the perfect amount of filtered sunlight without putting too much strain on your eyes. For anyone who wants extra privacy and protection from harsh sunlight but also wants natural light, these are the perfect solution.
When you have a window that needs to be covered, you want to make sure that it's done right. You don't want to just cover the window—you want to cover it and keep people from seeing inside your house. That's what a closed position does.
When you close the shades on a window, they line up perfectly with each other. This means that if you use binoculars or a telescope to look into your house, you won't be able to see inside! It's the perfect way to keep prying eyes out of your business.
If you want to open your blinds, but still want to keep the sun out of a room, then the raised position is for you.
Open or closed, the shades can be raised. You can use this feature to see outside while also getting sunlight and viewing through a window, as well as not blocking your view of it. It's ideal for unobstructed views, as the raised position of the window covering allows you to enjoy the view while keeping the room safe and dark.
A bathroom is a space where you get that alone time, which you might not get anywhere else. Hence, it’s important that we choose our bathroom accessories carefully. This ensures that your bathroom looks attractive and covers all attributes.
As good looking blinds add charm to your bathroom, choosing the right blinds for your bathroom window is important! And there are a ton of factors to be considered before choosing the suitable window blind for your bathroom.
So, in this blog, let's look at the top factors to consider while choosing blinds for your bathroom window.
And we will also share some of the top blinds for your bathroom from the exclusive collection of Hunter Douglas.
The first and the most important thing is privacy. You should consider every factor like the direction of the window and how accurately the window needs to be covered and then accordingly choose the blinds.
The thought that someone is watching you or there is a privacy invasion should not be present in your mind in your alone time. So, for the best experience, choose the blinds that take care of privacy.
If your window faces the sun and your blinds do not have a proper light control system, then it's going to be really irritating for you. So make sure that you choose a blind with a proper light filter system. Choose one that allows you to let in natural light without hampering your experience.
While selecting blinds for the bathroom, if the material of the blinds is not moisture-proof, then it will not last long. So for extended durability, moisture resistance is one of the most important factors to consider.
You are coming into the bathroom to relax, and due to some functionality issue, your blinds are not going down or lifting up correctly, and you spend 5 to 10 minutes of your precious time setting the blinds. It is a total wastage of your time, right?
So first, check that the blinds you are going for are functioning correctly. Don't just get attracted by the look, as functionality also matters.
Choose a blind, which is easy to clean as the bathroom is moist. The chances of it getting dirty are more. So, choose the material that can be easily cleaned.

Luminette® Privacy Sheers combine sheer drapery panels with soft, vertical rotating fabric vanes fixed to the back of the sheer to provide light control and privacy. When the vanes are rotated open, the sheer fabric diffuses sunlight into a softer, more ethereal version of itself. You can rotate the vanes to direct light where you'd like, or close them to enjoy the privacy provided by traditional draperies.
Available in many options, all of which can bring an integrated look to your living room, these vertical fabric blinds are the perfect choice for wide expanses of glass, sliding doors, and other large window openings. These sheers can also be positioned to protect your floors and furniture from UV damage, while leaving unobstructed your views to the outside.
And in order to maintain a sleek, modern look, the hardware is concealed behind the headrail, adding a refined and elegant look to your windows.
BOLD DESIGN WITH BEAUTIFUL LIGHT CONTROL
Pirouette® Window Shadings provide a bold and modern alternative to the look and feel of traditional fabric blinds. Softly contoured fabric vanes magically transform harsh daylight by diffusing it, giving you complete control over light filtration, privacy, and views of the world beyond.
A large part of the uniqueness of the Pirouette® Window Shadings is the revolutionary Invisi-Lift™ system that allows the vanes to float gracefully on a single sheer backing. They block up to 81% of harmful UV rays when the vanes are fully open, and 99% when closed. Whatever setting you choose, your flooring and furnishings are protected.
Pirouette® Window Shadings are available with both light-filtering and room-darkening fabric opacities, two vane sizes and a wide variety of colours to perfectly complement your room’s colour palette. Of course, the full beauty of the fabric will be visible to all within the living room.
The Last Word
While you could have drapes, shades, blinds or sheers, or a combination of them, the beauty lies in mixing and matching different window treatments to achieve the ambience you desire. Drapes add layers of texture when combined with blinds or shades, while sheers allow for a softness not possible with other window treatments.
So whether you’re looking to regulate ambient temperature, have greater control over light, or fabrics that are not only modern, but stylish in design, then there are few options that can help create that look throughout your living room.

Automatic window blinds, in a new and fresh avatar.
Bring Scenes To Life
Having to deal with harsh light isn’t much fun. But neither do most people want to keep their homes in relative darkness during daylight hours.

We’re all familiar with the old adage of never judging a book by its cover. And that sentiment is certainly true when it comes to Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades because behind the beautiful drapery lies two features that are truly innovative in design, making these blinds multi-dimensional.
The Simplicity Of A Roller Shade, Plus Energy Efficiency
At first glance, you could easily think the Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades are nothing more than simple designer roller blinds. But there’s more to it than meets the eye, one where innovation and design come together to create a new experience.
This unique and surprising roller window shade is actually crafted from two layers of fabric, whose softly curved contours diffuse light and create a soft glow within your room. And what’s more, that undetectable second layer provides added insulation, making these cellular shades energy-efficient.
Energy Efficiency – Our proprietary cellular construction provides an energy-efficient layer that insulates your home in the winter and cools it down in the summer, providing a far more effective temperature control solution to that of traditional roller window shades.
Ease of Use – Sonnette shades is available with the LiteRise® cordless operating system, by which you can control your blinds with the touch of a finger. Alternatively, you could opt for SoftTouch™ Motorization, a unique battery-powered system that comes with a simple and intuitive wand-controlled operation. Both these systems are completely cord-free, making it ideal for homes with young children.
For the ultimate in convenience, PowerView® Motorization enables you to schedule your shades to open and close automatically using the PowerView App on your mobile device.
Colour Options – We understand that window roller blinds can be more than just a functional element. We also know that people’s tastes and preferred styles vary. We have created four fabric collections that include many beautiful colours, ranging from popular whites and neutrals to more vibrant tones. Not only that, but we also have semi-opaque and room-darkening options, both of which, when combined with the numerous fabric options, offer enough of a variety to suit your needs.
Most of us are familiar with blinds. More often than not in our offices, creating a welcome screen from the glare or heat from outside. Functional pieces of soft furnishings, their cords often get in the way. But it is also true that not all blinds are created equal.
Imagine a set of blinds that is uniform, has no exposed rear cords, and that can be created as contoured or with flat-fabric folds. We’ve eliminated all those fiddly issues from the standard blinds, and created Roman window blinds that are flawless, and modern. Now, in your mind’s eye, imagine the perfect Roman gracing the windows in your home.
The Modern Roman Window Blinds
Our blinds combine the soft look of fabric folds, the convenience of a conventional blind, and ease of operation. Stacking smoothly and evenly when raised, our Roman window blinds can bring an elegant look to your home, be it traditional, or contemporary and relaxed.
With consistent folds and no exposed rear cords, your windows stay uncluttered, ensuring a clean and crisp look to the room. The fabric choices are vast, as are the fold styles, sizes, colours and opacities. This is the perfect alternative to the traditional Roman shade.
The Duolite option fulfils your desire for the best of both worlds – soft, natural light, or soothing darkness. Designed to work on a single roller, this revolutionary design combines a sheer front shade that filters light, with a room-darkening back panel for added privacy. It is day-night convenience at your fingertips.
The Vignette range comes in two different styles:
The Rolling Style – This has a 4” full fold or 6” flat fold, and rolls up into the headrail
The Stacking Style – The fabric stacks neatly beneath a low-profile headrail for shallow mounting depths and is available in a 4” full fold
Premium Sheer – Our new sheer fabric, Leela, comes in six subtle colours, and can be used either as a standalone on the Vignette Modern Roman Shade, or as the front shade fabric in the Duolite option.
Elegance & Style – All Vignette shades retain a consistent, full or flat fold appearance, and require minimal fabric dressing while being raised or lowered. The fabric options are durable, come in exquisite designs, require minimal maintenance, and are easy to clean.
Ease Of Use – Powerview® Motorisation, EasyRiseTM, and UltraGlide® are the operating systems available for use with our Roman window blinds, none of which rely on dangly cords that disrupt the look of your windows.
The ethereal beauty of the light from the rising sun has held humankind in awe for time immemorial. For millennia, when dusk brought the curtain down on our day, dawn signalled the raising of that very curtain. Things have changed, the biggest one being that we have the ability to create and experience light exactly how we want to, but the one constant? The beauty of the rising sun cannot be matched.

In offices the world over, roller blinds are a popular choice of window covering due to its versatility, practicality, and affordability. As the name suggests, these blinds are made from a continuous panel of fabric or material that rolls up, and when raised, isn’t visible to the naked eye. Such blinds come in a variety of fabrics and styles and work in any setting – home or office, shop or restaurant – and with almost any décor.
Given that roller blinds come in many different types, the big question is the type that best meets your needs. Traditional Roller Blinds, or roller screen shades? Popular for their sleek look and flexibility, extensive fabric colours and designs, and multiple light-filtering options, including blackout roller blinds, the choice is yours.
For rooms that get a lot of sun, the option of roller blind offers a tremendous advantage over curtains exist. These offer excellent UV protection while maintaining the view of your surroundings. Coverings like the Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades combine the energy-efficient construction of a cellular shade with the clean lines of a std roller blind, giving you the best of both worlds
Sheers, opaques, patterns, textures, and colours – there are plenty of choices for you. We have hundreds of fabrics and as well as top and bottom treatments – including fabric pelmets – enabling you to customize blinds that fit almost any application.

With Roller Blinds, fabrics of different opacities can be combined to achieve varying degrees of light control. Using Roller Blinds with motorization in combination with our sun control devices will not only offer you a seamless experience but also superior solar heat control.
Whether your design sensibilities are modern or traditional, these blinds work extremely well due to their clean, neutral appearance. When installed behind the curtains in your room, they add style and an extra layer of privacy. And if you have a beautiful view, enjoy it in its entirety, because when raised, the blinds disappear completely into the headrail.
The really great thing about such blinds is that they can be mounted a number of ways. An inside mount highlights your windows, while an outside mount covers the window frames.

Honeycombs – one of nature’s most effective patterns – make the most efficient use of space and building materials. Humans began finding uses for this pattern more than 3,000 years ago, though its practical adoption only began just over 100 years ago.
Our designers and engineers knew that almost 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy is lost through windows. They also realized the worth of the honeycomb as a means of improving insulation. After years of research to perfect its design, operation, and manufacture, we launched a path-breaking window covering in 1985. One that still continues to lead the field when it comes to window coverings.
THE ORIGINAL ENERGY-EFFICIENT HONEYCOMB SHADE
When it came to energy efficiency, Duette® Honeycomb Shades were the first window coverings created for homes in both cold and warm climates. The honeycomb construction traps air in distinct pockets, creating insulation that helps keep your house warm in winter, and cool in summer, helping lower energy consumption and hence, your energy bills. Our latest innovation, Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades, features a double honeycomb design for even greater energy efficiency.
The benefits of the Duette® Honeycomb Shades aren’t just restricted to energy efficiency and the diffusion of light.
Premium Design & Style – Tastes and preferences of our customers vary, as do the expectations of leading architects and interior designers. So whether you’re planning a classic or contemporary look, we have a suite of exclusive design-inspired fabrics, textures, colors, and hardware that will more than meet your needs, while enhancing interiors, providing comfort, light diffusion, and privacy.
Ultimate Versatility – Windows come in many shapes. We’re all familiar with square and rectangular-shaped windows, but include arches, quarter circles, circles, hexagons, and octagons. Our signature Duette® Honeycomb Shades offers an expansive selection of cellular pleat sizes, opacities, colors, textures, and operating systems. And if you happen to have a skylight, we have solutions for that too.
The Best Of Both Worlds – An innovation yet to be surpassed, the Duette Duolite® combines two fabrics – one light filtering, the other room darkening – in a single shade, providing the ideal option for regulating light and privacy.
Room Darkening—The LightLock™ system, the newest innovation from Duette is the first operating system to offer unparalleled darkness. So whether you want to watch your TV with no harsh glare reflecting off it, or you like to sleep in total darkness, our unique side-channel design absorbs or deflects nearly all light from seeping into the room.
Durability – All our high-performing fabrics are UV-protected, making them resistant to fading, and will maintain their crisp, neat pleats over time. Additionally, fabrics can be anti-static, dust- and moisture-resistant too, maintaining their beauty for years to come.
Vertical Application – Not all windows are made equal. Glass doors and French windows may require vertical coverings, or perhaps extra insulation. The Duette Vertiglide™ operating system is the answer, and it uses the same fabrics as your horizontal Duette shades. Use one shade to cover the entire expanse of sliding windows, or, cover the door with a split-stack Vertiglide shade, with each side operating independently.
Sound Absorption – Noise pollution is increasingly a feature in the modern world. Duette® Honeycomb Shades absorb up to 80% of sound energy – improving your room’s acoustics while reducing the intensity of outside sound – creating a more quiet, tranquil space.
