Choosing the Best Window Treatments for Homes

Not everyone realizes just how much of an effect your window treatments have on your home. There are plenty of directions you can go in when it comes to your window treatments, and the needs you have for your home, along with your goals for your interior design, can determine which window treatments you decide are best. At Viking Blinds, we can help you with choosing the best window treatments for homes.


A lot of people like the way blinds offer light filtering and flexible shade, along with easy adjustment. While blinds are certainly a practical choice for your windows they can also be a great choice if you want a sleek and minimalist aesthetic for a room. Options such as Parkland® Wood Blinds can add a surprisingly sophisticated appearance to your windows, bringing warmth and elegance with the rich natural wood grain of the slats.

The EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds offer a realistic wood grain appearance, but in a sleek material that won’t get damaged due to heat or moisture while also cleaning off easily. The innovative de-Light™ feature is available as well and covers up cord holes for enhanced privacy and room-darkening.


Shades are a more fashion-focused type of window treatment, offering multiple ways to show off beautiful fabric, stylish textures, and creative color schemes. The Designer Roller Shades offer convenient operation on a roller headrail along with incredible customizability. There are hundreds of fabrics available, along with various opacity levels, colors, and patterns.

Roman Shades use elegant folds of cascading fabric to create a more ornate and elegant appearance. There are many variations of Roman Shades offered by Hunter Douglas, including the Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, which offer a sleek and modern approach to the classic Roman Shade Design. The available Duolite® feature is an independent liner that lowers behind the shade to allow for both blackout shades and light-diffusing sheer shades operating on one convenient roller. This feature allows for remarkably flexible light control, which often isn’t found on shades.

Sheers and Shadings

Sheers and shadings from Hunter Douglas offer flexible light control, daytime privacy, and incredible convenience, acting a type of window shade that is far more comprehensive than other types. The sheer fabric diffuses sunlight, blocking much of the sun’s UV rays and glare while also offering daytime privacy. You also still get a view to the outside but without the harshness of direct sunlight.

The different variations of sheers and shadings from Hunter Douglas use different orientations of attached fabric vanes for easy shade adjustment. In addition to being a practical and comprehensive window treatment solution, sheers and shadings from Hunter Douglas create a brilliant glow of natural light, allowing soft light to illuminate all corners of the room.

At Viking Blinds, we are proud to offer exceptional window treatments from Hunter Douglas, along with personal consultation to help you find just what you need for your home.
