Summertime is full of sun and mixed entertaining, and if you find yourself having company over throughout these bright months, you know the value in being able to utilize all of your home’s space efficiently for entertaining - especially sunrooms and patio spaces. Unfortunately, when it comes to patios and sliding glass doors, these spaces are often left without window treatments, whether it be because they pose a challenge or because these window treatments get in the way and feel more like a bother than of use.

Woven Wood Shades

You want a window treatment that crafts a glowing ambience while providing protection from excessive sun and also helps keep the inside of your home cool. This is why we at Premier Blinds and Designs love our Hunter Douglas woven wood shades. With an array of styles, colors, and control options, this window covering is as versatile as it is beautiful. Let’s take a closer look at what makes these shades so great!

Energy Efficiency

Keeping your windows covered helps reduce excessive solar heat gain. Excessive sunlight can make it difficult to keep the inside of your home a consistent temperature, putting a strain on your central AC, resulting in more expensive energy bills. Woven wood shades, like the Provenance® collection, feature several opacity options, including light filtering to room darkening shades designed to keep out excessive heat while filtering sunlight beautifully for a warm glow. When paired with PowerView® Automation, it’s easy to program your smart shades to remain closed during the brightest times of day for even more temperature control. Spend a cooler summer inside of your home while lowering your energy bills with these shades.


Spaces with large sliding glass doors can feel particularly vulnerable, especially if you live in a busy suburb. Woven wood shades offer a comfortable sense of privacy, keeping your home protected from the outside world day and night. And, woven wood shades provide protection against harmful UV rays, which can damage your furniture over time.


Our Hunter Douglas woven wood shades come in several styles, including the classic Provenance® and the woven wood alternative, Alustra® Woven Textures. Both of these collections feature fashion-forward fabrics and a modern color palette that gives you the freedom to express your inner sense of design. Accent your windows with eye-catching visual interest and making a lasting impression with luxurious, textured fabrics. Choose from light filtering to room darkening opacities as well as options for roller shade and Roman shade shapes.
