What are side panels?

Custom Hunter Douglas side panels are a type of curtains or draperies. If you have encountered curtains or draperies before—whether you have crafted a custom set with us, or purchased your own elsewhere—it is likely that you have seen the traditional style, where a curtain fully covers a window, providing its primary source of light control. While side panels provide some additional light control, particularly addressing gaps in coverage on the sides of your windows, their primary purpose is aesthetic. If you are looking to add some extra pizzazz to your windows, are seeking to pull out an accent color, or want to cover light gaps in your existing window treatments, side panels are a perfect choice. Since these side panels are custom, you can create yours to address any functional or design needs your windows may have.

What are my options for side panels?

Like all custom Hunter Douglas window coverings, your custom Hunter Douglas side panels will be created just for you and will be made entirely to your specifications. This means that your side panels will be made to the exact measurements of your window, so you can be sure that they will fit perfectly and will look exceptional. In addition to the fit, you will be able to pick the fabric, color, and style of your side panels as well, so you will never again have to comb through premade draperies again.

When would I need side panels?

There are a number of situations where custom Hunter Douglas side panels would be ideal. Perhaps the most common situation, however, is when you already have a window treatment like blinds, shades, or shutters on your window, but you are seeking additional light control or décor. Side panels can provide an appealing softness to balance the hard lines of blinds or shutters and can help stop light leakage that can slip through past the edges of your window shades. While all Hunter Douglas window fashions are effective on their own, adding side panels to your existing window treatments can bring you even more benefits.
