These unique Ambio blinds are very contemporary and have an Asian look. They are on a continuous cord that rotates semi-opaque and sheer fabric bands. When the opaque bands are aligned, they expose a sheer band in between. When they are partially above the sheer band, they expose a narrow slit of sheer .The coloured sections then appear to be 2 toned. When the opaque bands are directly one above the other, you cannot see through them. They are light filtering, but private.
We treated the patio door with 2 blinds for easy access in and out while using the deck. The same blinds are used in the adjoining room. They have been installed inside the frame in order to show off the trim.
The oak floors were chosen to match the oak in the table and are carried through to the adjoining family room
This Hunter Douglas sheer Luminette blind on the patio door is in keeping with the formal setting of the room.. It draws back like a drape, but has vertical vanes that rotate open and closed providing total privacy and UV block. It can be one way draw or centre split. Hunter Douglas has coordinating fabrics in many of their Silhouette blinds thus making it possible to create this soft, beautiful uniform look.
These are Hunter Douglas’ new Pirouette blinds. They combine the soft sheer of a silhouette shade with the folds of a roman blind. When the blinds are part way down, the folds are flat. This gives a valance effect. When the blind is down and open, the sheer backing between the folds softens the outside view. In this position the bottom of the vanes is pulled up behind the front. This creates soft fabric folds like those of a roman blind.
These shutters are a bi-fold application on this patio door. By doing them this way, we maintain the symmetry with the shutters on the window, which are also bi-fold. You can have four panels back in the same direction if you need more clearance to get through the door. We have also done them on panel tracks. One panel of shutters slides in front of the first panel. This is very sleek and avoids the problem of panels folding into the room when the space is tight. However, when the panels pass in front or behind each other the vanes have to be closed. The drawback to this is that it cuts down on the light in the room
Silhouette blinds have two layers of sheers with attached fabric vanes. You can rotate the vanes open and closed for total privacy. When they are raised, they roll up into their fabric covered head rail and are completely hidden. For something so pretty, they have exceptional R & UV values.
