Hunter Douglas shutters on the other hand come in three distinct styles, that they have coined the Heritance, Palm Beach, and Newstyle collections.

Finally, the hybrid Newstyle collection pairs strength and traditional appeal with their modern finishes to prevent the worst damages.
Finally, from Hunter Douglas’ collection of shades, we have one of the best utility window treatments available on the market today. Hunter Douglas Duettes are a style of cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades for their distinctive appearance. With half of all heat being lost through the window each year, these shades can cut down on heating bills with their patented dual layered fabric rolls, shaped like the quintessential honeycomb. This traps air between the two layers of fabric, insulating the house and preventing air heat from moving into or out of the room through the windows.
So no matter what Hunter Douglas window covering is chosen, it is assured that the materials, manufacturing process and design will all be top-notch quality.
