Of the top ten interior design trends Hunter Douglas named for 2011, “daylighting” is perhaps the most intriguing and purposeful. The term refers to the control an individual has over natural light coming into the home and how much and where that light is distributed. With mechanisms such as louvers, slats, vanes and panels, all Hunter Douglas products enable this kind of control of a very powerful element allowing us to create the mood or outcome we like for any room of the home.
The light you want in this room will depend upon your activities. For instance, if you are watching television, you won’t want the glare produced by full-on sunlight. Being able to fully close your window coverings or at the very least redirect it is highly important. Look to a Hunter Douglas product like Silhouette window shadings for this purpose. They allow you full control over the light, but also allow a view of the outside when desired.
If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, then like many of us, you might prefer to have it as light and cheery as possible with a full view to the outdoors during the day and full privacy at night. To achieve this, a product like the Vignette Modern Roman Shades, allows you to completely raise and close them at will. This gives the perfect light control for an active kitchen.
For many of us, the bedroom is the room where light control is the most important. Being able to shut out the elements completely can make for a good sound sleep which is a requirement for all of us. Whether you work nights and sleep days or just need to block out your neighbors glaring safety lights, Luminette Modern Draperies work perfectly.
