Shutters, Sliding Panels and Roller Shades
Shutters offer traditional elegance that is engineered to last a lifetime. They won’t warp, chip, peel or fade and never need painting. Sliding panels are great when you need to liven up your décor. They are available in a wide variety of natural wood patterns. Whether you need to cover your patio doors or create an inviting room divider, these sliding panels are a perfect choice. Roller shades are the perfect combination of practicality and style. Their beauty is in their simplicity. Many styles are available in an array of today’s most fashion forward colors, designs and textures. A variety of light filtering options are also available ranging from light filtering to room darkening. And all styles increase energy efficiency and protect furnishings from the sun’s harmful rays.

Bamboo, Draperies and Honeycomb
Woven wood or Bamboo shades have a distinct personality all their own. Their natural material combinations of bamboo, rattan, reeds, jutes, grasses and woods offer a unique personal appeal that adds warmth and comfort to a room’s décor. Their tropical flavor makes them especially suited to casual environments such as patios, sun rooms, playrooms and dens. Draperies are great for large windows and offer excellent protection from the sun. Honeycomb shades from traditional to contemporary, are one of today’s most versatile and fashionable window coverings. The unique cellular construction provides excellent insulation, which helps reduce your heating and cooling bills as well as superior sound absorption that makes your surroundings more private, quieter and more comfortable. They’re made of 100% polyester fabric, they’re stain-resistant, washable and wrinkle-resistant, the ultimate in easy care for families. Honeycomb shades are available in standard windows to arches, angles, special shapes and skylights to cover just about any window.

Mini Blinds, Roman Shades, Silhouettes
From basic to premium, aluminum blinds provide a sensible window covering solution that is easy to clean, durable and affordable. For a timeless look that never goes out of style, aluminum blinds are available in a wide array of specialty shapes, colors and styles including whites, neutrals, pastels, jewel tones, metallics and pearlized finished to fit any window and blend with any color.
Roman Shades’ flexibility of design lends itself to all kinds of fabric, from full-bodied, heavy fabrics to softer and more pliable ones. Full-bodied fabrics tend to project forward, while pliable fabrics tend to have a softer, wavier appearance.
Silhouettes offer the beauty of drapes, the function of shades and the light control of blinds combined into one soft, stylish window covering. The sheer facings gently filter sunlight and help block harmful rays while preserving the outside view. The soft two and  a half inch vanes are available in light-filtering, textured and room-darkening styles and can be adjusted to provide precise light control and privacy.

Verticals, Wood Blinds
With hundreds of styles from which to choose, vertical blinds transcend the ordinary because they are distinctive, classic and long-lasting. Selections include fashionable smooth and textured vinyls, as well as fabrics ranging from basic non-wovens to decorative weaves and jacquards. Clear Magic insert groovers are available with styles to combine the soft, textured appeal of fabric with the insulation, light control and privacy advantages of vinyl. No other treatment offers the unique combination of fashion, form and function like vertical blinds.
Wood Blinds’ natural beauty will add warmth to any room. Unique slat sizes and decorative styles will fit any scale window and provide maximum view-through to let the outdoors into your home.
