If you are purchasing any window coverings product, you need to be aware of how much room it will take up in its stacked position. Today’s example is the Hunter Douglas Luminette Shading. We’ve done other blogs on the Luminette in the past and so this blog and video only discuss the stacking of the product.
Luminette Stacking Charts
Take a look at a portion of the Hunter Douglas Luminette Stacking Chart. This is a critical fact sheet for a window treatment designer. It shows us specifically how much of the window will be covered in the stacked position. Keep in mind that this chart does not cover all options. For example, if you choose the PowerView Motorization option, the chart will have slightly different numbers.
Will you want the entire door or window to be visible? Do you mind having part of the opening covered? Do the various choices affect your budget? All of these questions and many more are critical to ask as we determine which is the correct solution to your needs.
Stacking of Various Products
Every product takes up some room, whether at the top, bottom or sides of the opening. It is a really good idea to consult with an expert to foresee any issues you may encounter so that you will have great enjoyment of your chosen products. Keep this little tidbit in mind as a take-away. Products that are vertically oriented typically require more stack than their horizontal counterparts.
