Wonderful Window Treatments

Horizons Roman Shade

Window Treatment Wednesday: Hirshfield’s Designers Pick Our Favorites

With the days growing longer and temperatures getting warmer, it’s the time of year to throw open the windows and let in the fresh air. And while enjoying that spring breeze, it’s fair to daydream about new window treatments. In fact, some of our Hirshfield’s window treatment experts from around Minnesota are here to help you out with some of their favorites.

Roman Shades

Roz from Hirshfield’s in Alexandria loves Roman Shades. “I like that they can be very versatile from fun and modern to traditional,” she says. “There are so many different styles to choose from so you can always find one that suits the space.”

She also loves pairing them with panels. “Panels have always been the perfect way to dress up your room, whether it’s to add color or texture. I really like this treatment, the mixing of fabrics with natural shades provides a great balance. And the tassel trim on the panels adds a little jewelry.”

Form and Function

Duette Architella by Hunter Douglas

For beauty and function, along with energy efficiency, Debbie from St. Cloud recommends the *Hunter Douglas Duette Architella. “There are numerous options for operation,” she says. “The Duolite in particular, which has a sheer Duette on top and either a semi-opaque or opaque Duette on the bottom is really becoming a big hit for us. The Duolite is very versatile with privacy and light control.”

Classic Elegance

Belinda from Lakeville loves the classics. “The new Silhouette Fabric Brio is such a classic soft look with texture, and it can be paired with any soft window treatment (like side panels) for a beautiful classic style,” she says.

“Even opened, they still block out 88% UV rays for protection of floors and furniture.  The new white color, marble, and the new driftwood color sculpture are two of my favorites.”

We’ve Served Countless Satisfied Customers Over Generations

I have come to rely on the staff at Hirshfield’s Design Resource for their fabulous customer service and variety of products. The service is always friendly, timely and professional.

As a designer, their advice on window treatments is forever appreciated, and they are always able to show me something new in the displays and samples. They provide quick and accurate estimates, measurements and suggestions when I am struggling with a budget. The final product and installation has been nothing but flawless on every project.

I truly value what they continue to bring to our design community!

Want to give a shout out to Madi. Madi took a pretty awful experience and made it right for us. We had ordered cordless blinds and over half of them did not work right or hang right. Madi helped us return all the blinds and reordered a new product for us which we are very happy with. Madi was persistent in helping us get the issues we experience resolved.

She is always so warm and friendly and definitely puts her customers first. Thanks Madi you are a gem! Also want to add that my overall experience with Hirshfield's in St. Cloud has been an excellent experience. They made things right and put their customers first!

Greg is amazing! We have worked with him throughout the years on both existing homes and new builds and we could not be happier. One of the things I appreciate about Greg is that he gets us to really think about how we will use our space, not just now but in the future when the kids get older. This has honestly has saved us from making some pretty big design mistakes. Finding durable fabrics and pieces is important to us while we have a preschooler running around, yet on the other hand, our teens have a different use for the space.

He is able to make it all work together seamlessly by understanding the space and its function. He has a fresh and distinctive feel to his work and builds in a variety of styles. I HIGHLY recommend working with Greg out of the gate, you will not be sorry. I honestly don't know what we do without his help;)
