Selecting the Right Shades or Blinds for your Calgary Home

Selecting the right shades or blinds for your Calgary home is an art, a science and a craft.


Every house, room and window is unique—each with its own practical requirements and optimal design needs. Fortunately, Hunter Douglas blinds and shades are available in Calgary, and they come in a multitude of style and colour choices with the best warranties in the business. With this embarrassment of choices in shades and blinds offered by Hunter Douglas in Calgary, how do you choose the right ones for your window treatments?


Let’s look at five important factors to consider when selecting shades and blinds for your Calgary home:

1. Blinds. 

One of the advantages of opting for blinds in your Calgary home is their unique ability to filter incoming light in the exact proportion you desire. Tilting or angling the slats allows full sun to full blackout and everything in between—it’s your choice. The same applies to privacy. Privacy needs change throughout the day and blinds in your Calgary home offer you the choice to precisely control your privacy preferences.

2. What about shades?

Shades are a soft window treatment available in a multitude of styles and textures, patterns and fabrics. They range from the sheerest fabrics for minimum light diffusion, to complete blackout and thermal variants. They can be very discreet and very affordable. Their range of motion is normally limited to being raised or lowered.

3. Array of materials. 

Hunter Douglas blinds and shades in Calgary are available in an incredible array of choices—there is a perfect one for every window treatment in your home. From wood, aluminium or vinyl slats to the most delicate or plushest fabrics, the choice is yours.

4. Styles. 

Is it selection you want? Aluminium blinds offer a sleek look for modern décors. Faux-wood blinds are often used in bathrooms and kitchens because of their moisture resistance. Wooden blinds offer unparalleled warmth in living spaces and bedrooms. Solar shades are perfect for sun-facing studies or media rooms to control glare but still allow light to pass. There’s no limit to the selection!

5. Technology. 

Hunter Douglas also offers homeowners in Calgary the option to install blinds that can be controlled with a smartphone! Or maybe you have young children or pets? There are many models available that feature a cordless option for ultimate security.
