Window Coverings – Duettes

Feeling a little hot or cold in your home?  Duettes are the ideal solution.  In the summertime, they reduce the heat coming into the space by up to 80% and in the winter time, the heat leaving the home is reduced up to 40%.  In our climate of extreme fluctuations, this has a BIG impact on the comfort in your home, as well as your heating and cooling costs.

They come in light filtering fabrics, see-through sheers and room dimming options. Blinds can be raised or lowered with a variety of corded options, cordless options and of course, the ever popular power options for the hard to reach locations, or just because power is the way going forward.  I mean who wants to walk in a room and open 5 corded blinds when you could hit a button on the wall and it moves to your favourite opening!

Here’s an option where you can have the blind come down from top.  This is great if you have a view at top, but need to keep the bottom covered for privacy.

Duettes can cover most windows, including arches.  They can either be installed in a fan-like orientation or they can open from the top if you still want to get some natural light.

They can also be installed vertically to either cover a patio door, a wide expanse of windows or be used as a room divider.  This one has a faux wood valance to help it blend with the existing trim on the side windows.

If you have a french door you are looking to cover, you are in luck.  These blinds come with the option of a hold down to keep your blind in place when you open and close your door.
