Before- Destroyed Draperies

When one of our clients is remodeling, often they are changing window treatments too. Today’s post is showing you part one of their changes. They used to have a layered drapery treatment with sheers and privacy drapery panels. Our Reno NV client chose to darken the room more with cellular shades.

The product they chose was the Hunter Douglas Duette Shade in an opaque fabric. The controls are  PowerView motorization with the plug-in accessory. Size matters: this shade pushes the limits for a battery control system. We suggested that they use the adapter so as not to be changing batteries all the time. On a shade of this size, which is about 11 feet across by over 8 feet tall, battery operated shades would drain power quickly. I’d guess that they’d be changing batteries every six months or so.

I mentioned earlier that this was part one of the treatment. The client has also ordered some beautiful sheer draperies to cover the Hunter Douglas Duette Shade. When that is installed, we will also shoot video of the complete look and we will be able to see the difference in design from 20 years ago to today.
