Discover Hunter Douglas Green

For over 60 years, Hunter Douglas has been creating and offering natural and appealing ways to harness heat and light. In the winter, heat leaves through the window when you need it, yet becomes trapped inside in the summer when you don't. Heat loss and gain drive our energy usage up. It can be felt in our monthly utility bills and calculated in our collective carbon emissions.

Today, Hunter Douglas is committed to lowering our energy usage and implementing other changes that will ultimately reduce our carbon footprint by 20%. Our overriding goal, though, is to help our customers everywhere save energy the natural way by effectively channeling and exploiting the natural power of the sun.

Looking for a Decorating Style that Stays Up-To-Date?


Hunter Douglas Parkland Wood Blinds can be part of a classic decor.
Hunter Douglas Parkland Wood Blinds can be part of a classic décor such as midcentury modern.

One recommendation is “midcentury modern,” a style based in the middle of the 20th century and characterized by solid hardwoods, metallic finishes and clean lines. Midcentury modern is part of a return to a more classic look, according to a recent article in the Chicago Tribune (“Midcentury modern,” by Cathy Hobbs, August 30, 2018) because it can help anchor a space with timeless pieces and easily blends with furnishings from other periods.
How can you bring your window treatments into this classic and beautiful look? Just Right Blinds & Shutters offers several outstanding options from the Hunter Douglas line. Here are some ideas:
Parkland Wood Blinds are authentic, handcrafted hardwood blinds that fit well with the solid hardwood theme of midcentury modern. Choose from a wide selection of finishes, slat sizes and decorative tapes to match your room, and enjoy a high quality finish that protects the wood for years of use.
EverWood Alternative Wood Blinds offer the luxurious, timeless look of wood along with resistance to high humidity, extreme temperature and direct sunlight.
Modern Precious Metals are aluminum blinds available in an extensive array of colors, including choices that echo the brass metallic hues favored in midcentury modern accessories and lighting.
Custom Shutters from Hunter Douglas include Heritance Hardwood, NewStyle Hybrid and Palm Beach Polysatin. Any of these choices can provide the classic elegance and clean hard lines that help create a timeless, midcentury modern look for your room.
For more information about how you can select window treatments to enhance the classic look of midcentury modern, or any other décor you choose, contact Todd Zimmerman, Just Right Blinds & Shutters, Direct: 630.292.3756, tz@JustRightBlinds.com, www.JustRightBlinds.com.

Motorize Honeycomb Blinds & Enjoy Smart, Convenient, Effortless Use

Hunter Douglas PowerView Motorization lets you automatically move shades like these Duette Honeycomb blinds up or down anytime from anywhere.
With PowerView Motorization from Hunter Douglas, you can move blinds such as these Duette Honeycomb Shades up or down at anytime of the day from anywhere, even while you're away.

Just Right Blinds offers PowerView Motorization from Hunter Douglas on a variety of shades, sheers and blinds, including the popular, energy efficient Duette Honeycomb Shades, available in an incredibly wide array of fabrics, colors, pleat sizes and styles. Homeowners love their crisp, clean look. Add motorization, and homeowners also enjoy effortless convenience.
With PowerView Motorization, you can automatically move window treatments anytime, from anywhere, to the precise position you desire. For example, you can make a room more comfortable during the day by programming a shade to open and close at different times depending on outside temperatures and your own preferences. And it’s as easy as the touch of a finger on an app or the press of a button on a Hunter Douglas Pebble or surface remote.
Still another benefit: cordless operation of motorized blinds makes your home safer for young children and pets.
New for 2018, Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb Shades with PowerView Motorization include several enhancements. Endcaps are slimmer and sleeker with a smaller profile button control and visible indicator light. The already quiet motor is even more muted, and battery life has been extended by up to 15 percent, depending on shade size and usage. Shade placement during operation is now even more precise, and a more powerful antenna heightens signal reception to remote controls.

How to Know if Shutters Are Right for Your Home


How can you know if shutters are the best choice for your home? What benefits do they offer? Will you be happy with the look and feel?

Hunter Douglas NewStyle Shutters blend the beauty of real wood and advanced modern-day materials in a top-quality custom product.
Crisp white shutters like these from the Hunter Douglas NewStyle Hybrid line provide a timeless, upscale look that works with nearly any décor.

Rest assured that shutters are a great choice for almost any décor, whether you’re working with a traditional or ultra-modern look, or a transitional or eclectic design. As much as almost any other window treatment, the right shutters provide a timeless, upscale look that can even increase the resale value of a home. The clean, neat, stylish look of shutters enhances both inside atmosphere and outside curb appeal. Shutters are available in wood or composite materials and in a wide range of colors, sizes and specialty shapes.
Shutters also offer great advantages such as energy efficiency, light and privacy control, easy operation and maintenance and durability. They provide an insulating shield against both winter cold and summer heat. You can tilt louvers to adjust for light and privacy, and use divider rails to separately control the top and bottom portion of the shutters, an especially versatile option for a bathroom. Shutters are easy to clean with a feather duster or damp cloth.
One of the most important things to know when purchasing shutters is that custom shutters are your best option. They will fit your windows exactly and perfectly locate a divider rail if needed. You can find a custom shutter to fit an arch or oval window, use a bi-fold track for a narrow application or fit the shutter frame around the handle of a French door. And you can choose the precise color and style that suits your room and décor preferences.
Just Right Blinds & Shutters offers both wood and composite Hunter Douglas shutters, including Heritance Hardwood Shutters, NewStyle Hybrid Shutters and Palm Beach Polysatin Shutters. All are high quality custom products providing outstanding construction, versatility and durability. Just Right Blinds & Shutters will measure your windows and show you samples to help you select the size, style, color, finish, louver width and specialty options such as PowerView Motorization (available with Palm Beach Shutters).
Call us today for more information about new custom shutters for your home!

Not quite! Professional installation brings to life the look and function you want from your new blinds or shutters. Just Right Blinds & Shutters makes sure this all-important step is done professionally, accurately and smoothly, because the person who helps you select and then measures for your window treatments is also the person who installs them. Todd Zimmerman, owner of Just Right Blinds & Shutters, handles your entire window treatment process from start to finish.
Here’s why that’s a big advantage to you:
·      Todd is a professionally trained and certified Hunter Douglas installer. He will both measure and install your treatments to the correct specifications with a precise fit to your unique windows.

·      At your sales consultation, Todd will take note of any special situations such as window shape, trim features or hardware that affect fit and appearance. He’ll personally make sure all of these are taken into account when your order is placed and during installation.

·      Since the same person who measured and helped you select your blinds or shutters is installing, he can anticipate how to give you an error-free installation. And if any unforeseen issue does arise, it’s handled with on-the-spot communication.

·      You’re dealing with the same person from start to finish, someone you already trust to be in your home and give the same care you would to your walls, windows and furnishings. 

·      You’re not working with a third party, so any unexpected scheduling conflicts you might have for your time of installation are easier to resolve.

Answers to Your Window Treatment Questions from Just Right Blinds


How do I find room-darkening shades without losing my view? What cordless blind options are there to keep my child safe? Are there blinds that will help insulate my windows year ‘round?

Adding Duolite to a Silhouette window shading combines a light-diffusing shade with a room-darkening one.
Adding the Duolite option to a Silhouette Window Shading combines a light-diffusing shade with a room-darkening one, letting you enjoy privacy plus your view in one shade.

Just Right Blinds has answers to these questions and more, thanks to Hunter Douglas window fashions. We’re ready to provide you a free in-home consultation that considers all of your window treatment questions. To help start the process, here are answers to three of the major questions we hear from our customers:
Question 1: How do I add a room-darkening option without losing my view? 
Duolite is a dual-opacity option that integrates a light-diffusing shade with a room-darkening one. It’s available on Silhouette Window Shadings, Duette Honeycomb and Vignette 6-inch flat fold rolling style shades. Another option is top-down/bottom-up style, which lets you lower a shade from the top down, raise from the bottom up or any combination in between. Top-down/bottom-up is offered with Duette Honeycomb, Solera, Vignette stacking style and Provenance Woven Woods.
Question 2: I have young childrencan I get cordless options?
For sure! Hunter Douglas has completely cordless motorized options including PowerView and SoftTouch, as well as other cordless operating systems such as LiteRise and SimpleLift. Wand controls are also available as well as Vertiglide, a cordless choice for sliding glass or French doors.
Question 3: Are there blinds available to improve the energy efficiency in my home?
Great question! A high quality insulating window treatment keeps warmth inside during winter and the sun’s heat out in summer so you can enjoy year ‘round comfort without higher utility bills. Options from Hunter Douglas include the Duette Architella honeycomb shade, with a patented cell within a cell design that traps air and prevents it from escaping through a window. The Architella Trielle shade features five insulating pockets and is the most highly rated Hunter Douglas shade for energy efficiency. Sonnette Cellular Roller Shades are another excellent insulating option.
