Three Benefits of Designer Banded Shades

Has a ray of light shining through a window at golden hour caught your eye? It’s quite beautiful how light can gently glow throughout our homes. While it can’t be golden hour all the time, we can enjoy premium lighting if we have the proper window coverings. For example, you can create varying dimensions of light with a single banded shade when you choose Hunter Douglas Designer Banded Shades. Easy to operate and capable of being effortlessly integrated into a variety of home styles, Designer Banded Shades allow you to achieve your perfect amount of light by simply shifting the solid bands. For privacy, overlap the bands. For light, align the bands instead. Shifting from privacy and shade to premium light has never been so easy. Read on to learn more about the benefits of Designer Banded Shades for your home.
