Keep your furnishings looking beautiful...

The Sun is astonishingly powerful...

From 150 million kilometers away it has the power to give light and heat, provide usable energy and toast our skin, if we wish. Unfortunately it also has the power to damage furnishings, causing fading and/or brittleness for all sorts of items including upholstery, flooring and cabinetry.
Window coverings protect your valuable home furnishings, and allow you to enjoy your views when desired. Many different options are available, from the sleek and understated to focal and elegant... and everything in between!

A very common concern is that of not wanting to lose a great view, or to be 'shut off' from the outdoors & lovely light during the day- but still protect from harmful sun. The good news is that there are several types of shades that can allow you to get the most out of your windows and solve this dilemma.

Silhouette & Nantucket shadings from Hunter Douglas combine two layers of sheer fabric, with a soft vane suspended between. This gives the benefit of up to 87% UV blocking even when tilted open, allowing diffused, soft sunlight to bathe your room, and providing a filtered view of outdoors.The vanes can also be tilted to any degree for complete privacy and lighting control. 

Much of the same effect can be attained in a vertical, drapery style treatment with Luminette Privacy Sheers.

Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades offer sun protection and view when total privacy and light control aren't the main concern. Easy-care fabrics and a variety of opacity and texture choices make these a popular choice for kitchens, sun-rooms and offices. Available as roller shades, roman shades as well as vertical gliding panels.

Another opportunity for enjoying both light/view and complete privacy,
the 'Duolite' option for Hunter Douglas Duette and Applause...
A private and insulating honeycomb fabric is paired with a fine, sheer honeycomb above to create a two-in-one shade. An excellent choice for bedrooms and bathrooms in particular, as you can ensure total privacy at whatever height you wish, while allowing in diffused, softened light above when desired.

Stop in at Bruton's to explore all these possibilities and more, available to protect your furnishings and enjoy your windows.

Hunter Douglas offers the classic beauty of shutters enhanced with the durability and convenience of polysatin. 

Summerwind custom shutters provide superior sun protection, light control and privacy. Three louver width choices create an opportunity for stunning design- Go big & bold with 4 1/2" louvers, try cozy  cottage chic with 2 1/2" louvers, or enjoy traditional 'Plantation' or 'California' style shutters with the very popular 3 1/2" louver size.

Four subtle shades complement any decor; Snow, Antique, Pearl and Irish Cream.

Made from uniquely formulated UV-resistant polysatin compounds , they are engineered to easily handle the most demanding performance requirements without warping, fading, peeling or chipping. 

The smooth, durable finishes are easy to care for; simple dusting and wiping with mild detergents will keep shutters looking new for many years.

The resilient material makes shutters a natural choice for areas where humidity, moisture and cleaning are a common occurrence, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry areas.

Additional design options include such details as:
Traditional tilt rods vs. Clearlight (no visible tilt rod). Traditionally shutters have a vertical rod or bar on the front of the panel which connects all the louvers, allowing them to tilt simultaneously when the rod is shifted up or down. This tilt rod is most often centered on the front of each shutter panel, and offers a 'cottage-y', quaint look. The Clearlight option eliminates this rod, by connecting the louvers unobtrusively on the rear of the shutter, at the side. The connecting components are virtually invisible from the front of the shutter, and you simply grasp a louver to tilt them all.

Split tilt. With either the tilt rod or Clearlight option, splitting the tilt is possible. This means that the top and bottom of the shutter can tilt independently of one another. The split can be located halfway up, or wherever desire. A great option for enhanced privacy in bathrooms and bedrooms, you can shut the lower half but tilt the upper portion open for light & view.

To find out if shutters are the right choice for you,
