Viking Blinds is always proud to tell our clients that we carry only the top of the line products, and when it comes to window treatments, Hunter Douglas is by far the best on the market today. Our favorite thing to do, other than hear how happy our customers are with our recommendations, is to tell you all about our favorite Hunter Douglas products, like Pirouette® window shadings for homes.
Right now, we are just very excited about the Pirouette® line of window shadings. They are deceptively simple, with clean lines that will elegantly blend into any home. They are made up of softly contoured fabric vanes that will move in tandem for a fluid, graceful appearance when you adjust them. The shape of the contour can be selected by you based on your own tastes and the size and shape of the window you need the shadings for. The shadings can also be pulled up entirely into the headrail to give you a totally unobstructed view out of your windows, so you can watch a stunning sunset or just enjoy the world passing outside. The Invisi-Lift™ system means that the fabric vanes look like they are floating across the sheer backdrop of your window with no visible cords – they’re magically beautiful!
This option is available in a wide array of fabrics and colors, and there are varying levels of opacity available as well to suit your tastes and needs. The Alustra® Collection of Pirouette is a carefully curated line of fabrics specifically selected to look beautiful with this style of window shading, and you can round out the look of your windows with the Design Studio™ options of draperies and panels, all designed to work with any Hunter Douglas window treatment.
When the blinds are closed, they block up to 99% of the harmful UV rays from getting into your home and damaging your belongings, and when they’re open, they will still protect your furniture from up to 81%. Even better, there are four available operating systems for opening and closing your blinds, based on your needs and preferences. The most exciting and our personal favorite at Viking Blinds is the PowerView® Automation option. This unique system, which pairs with an easy to learn app that you control with your tablet or smart phone, will allow you to set scenes for each room and different time of day, determining where you want your blinds positioned, and then makes sure they are in place without any further effort on your part. You can integrate the system with your home automation system as well and make adjustments with a word!
The UltraGlide® system is a single retractable wand that won’t get in your way but makes raising and lowering the shades a breeze. The SoftTouch™ system is similar, utilizing battery power to make it even easier to push or pull the blinds up or down with a light tug on a wand. Finally, the EasyRise™ system is a single continuous cord loop that will avoid tangling and allow you to easily adjust your window shadings.
Viking Blinds is located in St. Louis Park, Maple Grove, Burnsville, and Woodbury, MN, but we are proud and happy to serve the greater Twin Cities area. Stop in or give us a call today and we’ll help you give your windows a makeover!
