Window Treatments Inspired by Coastal Vacation Destinations!

Have you had your dream vacation? How would you like to bring a little of your favorite place to your own home? The sun, the sand, the water, and the colors. How do you keep that feeling alive in the landlocked Midwest?

Paint colors, fabrics, and accessories all help recreate the coastal feel. Think of the colors of seaglass, soft, light and airy. Keep your space simple and free of clutter. That also goes for your window treatments. You can fashion your own vacation wonderland with window treatments that evoke your coastal getaway.

The options for window treatments are endless. Whether you are seeking draperies, curtains, panels, blinds, shutters, or shades, we’ve got you covered.

Plantation shutters are classic, timeless and approachable. For a beach-inspired style, consider NewStyle™ hybrid shutters, Heritance®, or Palm Beach shutters, all by Hunter Douglas. Now, you can have the same style of shutters that coastal cottages and resorts around the world embrace.

Improve the view of your room with woven woods. Made from natural fibers like bamboo, grass, reeds, and woods, they add another layer of color and natural texture to your room. For privacy and added warmth in the winter the shades can be backed. The lightweight drapery panels add a layer of coastal charm to the room along with the privacy and warmth benefits.

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;)
