Versatile Blinds: Options for Every Décor

When it comes to window treatments, the versatility of blinds in Clearwater, Florida is pretty hard to beat. They are available in vertical or horizontal orientations, giving them the ability to cover any pane of glass in your home, including sliding glass doors. They range from wood and composites to fabric and aluminum, and every material has numerous color options.

The flexibility of light and privacy control they offer is also amazing. They can be completely open and out of the way, completely closed for complete privacy and maximum light control, or closed with the slats or vanes tilted open to provide partial privacy and filtered light.

Just in case you wanted more choices to make, Hunter Douglas has several operating systems to consider for your horizontal or vertical blinds, including cords, retractable cords, chains, cordless, wands, and even motorization.

Versatile Blinds: Options for Every Décor

Beach house – Beach houses abound in the greater Tampa Bay area. Blinds are a great choice for this type of home for many reasons. Extra-wide windows and sliding glass doors, which are common when you live near the water, are easily covered with vertical blinds. Vertical Solutions blinds by Hunter Douglas are perfect for beach houses that are also rentals. This line of window treatments is a lower-cost option and comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns in either vinyl or fabric.

Cabin – There aren’t many mountains in Florida, but you may want to recreate that cabin feel in your home. For real wood horizontal blinds, look no further than Parkland®. Made from basswood or abachi, these blinds are available in a number of natural finishes to match your cabin décor. If heat and humidity is a concern, wood alternative blinds that look like real wood resist warping and cracking. Hunter Douglas also offers vertical blinds in real wood that match some of their horizontal blinds.

Modern – If your taste tends toward modern, Hunter Douglas has both vertical and horizontal blind options for your home. For your larger windows or sliding glass doors, try Skyline®. These unique vertical window treatments have 7-inch or 10-inch fabric panels instead of the narrower vanes of traditional vertical blinds, giving your windows a contemporary look. Aluminum horizontal blinds are the perfect accent for smaller windows and are available in a variety of slat widths and colors.

Plantation – Yes, the windows in a plantation-style house beg for plantation shutters, but sometimes they just aren’t within budget. Luckily, there is a more cost-effective window treatment that can give you a similar look. Everwood® Renditions horizontal blinds have wide slats that mimic the look of plantation shutters and offer the same light control options, but are more economical. They also withstand heat and humidity better than a traditional wood shutter.
