Cozy Window Treatments

One of the best ways you can create a cozy home atmosphere is by integrating inviting, warm tones into your home. This is especially easy to do with our collection of custom-made shutters and Hunter Douglas window treatments!

Create a cozy dining room experience with our custom shutters made in North Carolina. In addition to your choice between 3 louver sizes and multiple operating methods, you can also customize your plantation shutters’ hinge finishes and paint colors to ensure that your custom shutters match existing architecture, furniture, and decor. Available in several slat colors that range from white to golden to chocolatey brown, these timeless window treatments instantly create an elevated, cozy environment perfect for yearly use and décor in your holiday home.

If you crave the warmth and beauty of wood, but prefer something low-maintenance that can withstand foot traffic, kitchen heat, and wear and tear, our Hunter Douglas EverWood® Alternative Wood Shutters are the perfect solution. With a realistic finish on each slat, these blinds offer all the beauty of wood with zero of the upkeep. One less thing to worry about during hosting season!

Soft Additions

Soft additions are the perfect finishing touches to a cozy, warm home. This could be adding a fluffy, warm comforter to your guest room and a few additional pillows that will leave your guests impressed. This could also be soft lighting in your dining room to give your holiday dinners an intimate feel. Soft music playing from your speakers can also set a lovely mood during the holidays.

You can also add a special touch to your home with our Hunter Douglas PowerView® Automation System. While you are hosting and creating the perfect cozy atmosphere, PowerView® Automation can adjust your window treatments with the innovative PowerView® App, Pebble® Remote, or even your voice. This will blow guests out of the water in addition to the recommendations above!
