Choosing the Perfect Window Treatment Material

Choosing the Perfect Window Treatment Material Near Greenville, South Carolina (SC)

The hard part of your window treatment journey has already been done: you have decided that you want a set of Hunter Douglas blinds for your home! Whether you are choosing vertical or horizontal blinds, you are making a great investment for your home. You now have one more decision that needs to be made: the material that you want your blinds to be made out of. If you find yourself unsure of what you want to have your Hunter Douglas materials constructed from, let the experts at Blinds & Us in Greenville, SC help you decide.

Authentic Hardwood

Hunter Douglas offers horizontal blinds crafted from authentic hardwood for the ultimate in luxury when it comes to blinds. Hardwood from Hunter Douglas is built into blinds using the dovetail construction method, ensuring that your blinds are as durable as they are beautiful. Also, for anyone worrying about the ecological impact of their window treatments, the wood for Hunter Douglas’s blinds is ethically harvested, so you can rest easy choosing these beautiful blinds.

Alternative Wood

While real hardwood is always going to be a beautiful choice, it just isn’t for everybody. Whether you don’t want to deal with the potential maintenance of real wood blinds, or it is past your price point, that doesn’t mean that you have to totally forego the beauty of wood altogether. Hunter Douglas also offers blinds crafted from alternative woods, which look nearly indistinguishable from the real thing, so you will never feel like you have to compromise.


Aluminum is the oft-forgotten middle child of the window treatment world. Being placed at a lower price point than both hardwood and alternative wood, people associate aluminum blinds with being “cheap.” And yet, the price of aluminum blinds is only one of their advantages. Of all of Hunter Douglas’s blinds, horizontal or vertical, aluminum comes in the widest array of colors, slat sizes, and slat arrangements, so if you are looking for versatility and variety, regardless of your price point, aluminum blinds are an excellent choice.


Only Hunter Douglas’s vertical blinds are available in fabric, and, as with everything made by Hunter Douglas, their fabric selection is only of the absolute highest quality. Fabric is easy to match to your preexisting décor, as well to keep clean.


While fabric is easy to maintain, it is possible that it can stain or discolor over time. Because of this, for maximum ease of maintenance, Hunter Douglas also offers vertical blinds made from vinyl. Vinyl is even easier to clean than fabric, requiring only to be wiped down with a damp cloth or a duster, and is less susceptible to staining than fabric.

As you can see, regardless of what your needs are or what type of home you have, there is a perfect material for you to choose for your Hunter Douglas blinds.
