The Tradition of Verticals

For years, vertical blinds have been a “go to” when it comes to covering doors. While the tradition remains with wooden or fabric slats, vertical shades have risen in popularity, due to their ability to offer a bigger range of control. Vertical shades provide simple operation, gliding open and closed, but they also coordinate the look of your home, pairing beautifully with roller shades.

The gliding function of shades is important. But, what about the flowing fabrics of draperies? With the Luminette Privacy Sheers collection, you get the best of both worlds. Drapery-like folds offer softness for the overall look, but the control is truly amazing. These unique vertical shades filter light, but they also feature rotating vanes that close out the light, for room darkening and privacy options.

Plantation Shutters as Custom Door Coverings

Classic…timeless. Shutters will always be a favorite when it comes to custom door coverings. Besides the style, what makes them a favorite? It’s all in the details. Handle cut-outs and shutter options, like split tilt, allow you to customize the atmosphere of your home, while increasing the function of doors.

The Style & Function of Draperies

Want to add unique style to a space? Draperies will deliver! The patterns, colors and textures bring personality and charm. Fabrics also soften the look of a space while helping to create the right environment. Decide between side panels or full draperies, depending upon the light control and privacy needed.

Layering with shades, blinds or shutters is another great way to levels of control. The draperies can frame the window, while the base layer of window coverings provide solutions.


Covering Glass Doors 

When looking for custom window coverings, there’s no better glass to cover than that of french doors and patio doors. Those doors need to open and close, without fabric getting in the way. You need window coverings that move with the door. But, what do you when there’s no way to install hardware? Meet the TrackGlide™ system

The track adheres at the edge of the frame, just along the edge of the glass–not on the glass. There’s no drilling necessary, but you’ll end up with window coverings that move up and down–while moving with the door.
