When Hunter Douglas wished to create the very, very best window coverings without sacrificing luxury for economy, the Alustra Collection was created. They took their existing lines of proven products and created this collection by adding even more functionality, style, and value. The hope was to create a collection of window coverings that was truly special. There are numerous styles in the Alustra Collection, but we thought we’d take this blog to tell you about our favourites.
Alustra Woven Textures. These gorgeous blinds were created with unique, hand-picked materials. While similar light effects can be created using woven wood and solar screens, the Alustra Woven Textures combines both effects into one beautiful product. In an attempt to fit any space perfectly, there are many options available. You can choose the colour of your blind, the style of bottom treatment, and are able to coordinate windows and doors. These blinds also help to block out 75% of harmful UV. This means protection for your skin, furniture, and artwork.
Alustra Silhouette. Created with the same signature S shape you know, Alustra Silhouette filters in just enough natural light and bends it to perfection casting your home in a beautiful, soft wash of light with no direct glares, UV, brightness. Like all Hunter Douglas products, the Alustra Silhouette comes in a huge variety of exclusive fabrics and finishes. We are confident that the perfect combination to suit your home and decor can be found. The shape and sheer facings, give you the option to look out onto the world without allowing anyone to see back into the house.
Alustra Duette Architella. Our choice luxury blind for the environmentally conscious, Alustra Duette Architella combines the efficiency of the honeycomb shape with the Alustra design and style you can trust. Hunter Douglas created the honeycomb shape as a response to the incredible inefficiency of windows — almost 50% of a house’s energy is lost through them! But the unique shape of these blinds traps pockets of air and helps to keep your home cool in summer and warm during winter. Perfect for a luxury home with oversized windows! These window coverings, which are available in numerous styles and fabrics, also help to cut out noise pollution from outside.
There are many available window coverings in the Alustra Collection. Each looks a little different and provides different features. Whatever you’re looking for, we’re sure you can find it in the Hunter Douglas Alustra Collection! Come in to Normandeau today and see for yourself what makes this blinds so amazing.
