Spring is in the air! This is the time of year we all look forward to in the Reno area - spending time outside and enjoying fresh air and beautiful sunshine. Are your doors giving you trouble? Light control, in regard to doors, can leave many homeowners feeling frustrated. There are some great solutions out there in window coverings for your doors that will let you enjoy as much springtime sunshine as you would like, while also allowing functional access to your outdoor space. Here are just a few of our favorites...
If you have sidelights - also referred to as privacy windows - you are probably looking for ways to dress them. Incoming light has a great way of brightening your entrance, but can be horrible for privacy. While the privacy windows help your awareness of what is happening outside your front door, you shouldn’t have to feel overexposed.
With the clean, organized appearance of uniform pleats, our collection of Duette Shades offers your sidelights a stylistic option for light control and privacy. Top/down, bottom/up operation means you can let natural light in while maintaining your privacy. The cellular design offers energy efficiency so your home can remain a comfortable temperature throughout the year. The fabrics and colors you select will allow your entranceway to complement your home’s unique decor.
For those homes that feature high ceilings with a foyer-like feel, window coverings for your doors and entrance way windows is extremely important for setting the right atmosphere. Silhouette Window Shadings are a beautiful option when you want to direct the light and diffuse the glare. Soft, filtered light flows through to offer your foyer a warm glow. Choose automation for the convenience and functionality of those hard-to-reach windows.
You need access to your outdoor space, and your french doors and patio doors prove to be useful for the high amount of traffic. When you need window coverings for your doors, they have to provide solutions for light control and privacy, but without function, you’ll just end up frustrated. You can have it all when it comes to your doors - you just need to know what’s out there.
Light control and privacy are a simple tilt away, as Plantation Shutters direct the light and block it out as you see fit. You can easily enjoy the view when adjusted open, while the designer look of shutters heightens the level of style in your home. Shutters offer the custom design elements of handle cut-outs and are secured in place for safety and ease of operation. The romance of shutters, with the functional qualities you need, make these window coverings for your doors a fantastic choice.
When the beauty and flow of fabrics is the look you want, Vignette Modern Roman Shades will provide your home with sophistication and softness. The adjustment of these shades into the fully opened or closed position will provide you with light control, energy efficiency and privacy options. The low profile, custom design qualities of these window coverings for your doors allow you to enjoy light control while offering functional use of your doors highlighted with beautiful fabrics that will complement your home.
Speaking of high traffic areas - if you have a sliding glass door in your home, you know exactly what we are talking about. The opening and closing never stops - children, pets, family and friends constantly in and out. Sliding glass doors are often convenient and easy to use, even for your little ones, but they can pose problems as well.
The glass in your doors is similar to a large picture window, which means you need window coverings for your doors just like you would a large window. Skyline Gliding Window Panels offer a sleek, low profile design for contemporary appeal with durability and low maintenance, as well as allowing you to enjoy levels of privacy, light control and UV protection. The beautiful view is one simple gliding motion away.
Now that spring is on its way, are you in need of window coverings for your doors? We would love to help. As one of the tricky problems faced by homeowners, your doors need solutions so you can have the best of both worlds: natural light and a beautiful view, with the ease of light control and function that fit your lifestyle. Contact our team, at Horizon Window Fashions, for a free, in-home consultation.
When it comes to selecting new window furnishings, we’ve got you (and your windows) covered! Shades, shutters, and blinds are a great investment in the look, feel, and functionality of your home. And in this age of smart homes, it’s no surprise that automated blinds are growing in popularity. For over 22 years, Horizon Window Fashions has been adopting the latest technologies, then mastering the selection, installation, and customer support behind them. As a Hunter Douglas certified dealer, we carry motorized blinds that increase automation, energy savings, and enjoyment of your home.
Motorized window coverings are an efficient solution to optimize the positioning of your blinds throughout the day. Maybe you want to be able to shut all blinds simultaneously when heading out the door. Perhaps you desire the ability to adjust your shades remotely while out of town or at work. Or it could be that your windows are out of reach and you want a solution to control light levels up high. Whatever your needs are, Horizon Window Fashions will help you find the Hunter Douglas motorized shades that cater to your unique situation.
Hunter Douglas motorized blinds feature discrete, rechargeable battery packs that can last up to a year on a single charge. Operation of the blinds can be set up through the PowerView® smart phone app, remotely controlled via the Pebble® wireless remote, or connected with the PowerView Gateway Hub® for completely autonomous operation. PowerView blinds also integrate seamlessly with home assistants like Amazon Alexa or Google Home, and as of May 2022, Hunter Douglas has incorporated Bluetooth® technology into new systems for two-way communication between your shades and the PowerView system. It’s entirely up to you to choose the level of automation you desire. Whether you’d like the blinds to operate on preset schedules, be adjusted with your fingertips, or be at your beckoned voice command, there’s a solution and style waiting just for you.
Light is a powerful energy source that is waiting to be harnessed (or blocked out) in your home. In the winter, Hunter Douglas power blinds can be programmed to let in light, and welcome heat while you’re away. In these hot summer months, automated blinds can block out harsh UV rays that are silently driving up your energy bill and causing fading to your furniture, flooring, and priceless pictures. Some compatible fashions even feature a honeycomb design that insulates your windows further against heat and cold. The high desert of Northern Nevada sees temperature swings from single to triple digits, and an average of 250+ days of sunshine a year. Investing in Hunter Douglas power shades is one more way to bolster your home’s energy-saving defenses in our unique climate.
A home is typically the biggest purchase made in our lifetimes. Some upgrades you make won’t have much impact on the value of the home, but motorized window fashions definitely do – especially when done right. DIY motorized conversion kits do exist on the market, but the online reviews say it all. Big, clunky motors. Loud gear drives. Cords in plain sight. As they say, buy nice or buy twice. Conserve your DIY energy for other projects in your home, but for a seamless fit & functionality, leave power shade installation up to the pros.
The automated blind selection process can be overwhelming. Our customers have come to rely on Horizon Window Furnishings for prompt installation service, a strong manufacturer warranty, and friendly customer service to help you navigate the array of window covering options available. We’ll help you select a style of automated shutters, blinds, roller shades, or drapery to compliment your home.
Our in-house team of skilled, trained window fashion experts is among the best in the state – all certified in Hunter Douglas products. With our Gallery website tab, you can get inspired. Once you have an idea of what you like, schedule a Powerview™ Automation Consultation so we can begin working with you on a custom automated window covering solution for your Reno home!
Is your building in need of a new look? Commercial storefront windows and doors could be the perfect addition to give your building new life. At nvision Glass we offer affordable and practical products for your glass needs.

The addition of new storefront and doors can give your building a sleek modern look. While it is very simple, the look of the glass and the geometric positioning gives a great aesthetic to add a new feeling to your building.
Not only can your building increase in value with new glass, but it can also make your building more efficient. Commercial storefront and doors can help eliminate drafts and increase energy efficiency. They insulate better to keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter without driving up your electricity costs. Commercial glass is an investment in your building.
In an office setting, more windows increase the flow of natural light. This can help reduce the cost of electricity but also keep office morale high. People can be more connected to the outside world and there isn’t a feeling of being stuck in a cave all day. This is great for office space as well as a retail setting. Storefront glass can give you the
ability to show off your products and make a welcoming entrance for your customers.
Another great thing about commercial glass is that it can be designed in many shapes and sizes. This gives you more room to create a layout that you love or that represents your company.
This could mean the addition of electrified locks, special
hardware and access controls that can be easily incorporated into your new storefront doors at the time of design.

Having high-quality window coverings over the glass in your house is important for reasons other than just aesthetic appeal. Horizon Window Fashions is Reno’s licensed Hunter Douglas supplier. We are passionate about providing you with beautifully made window treatments that also protect you and your family as well as your furniture and other possessions.
When you purchase Hunter Douglas window coverings through Horizon Window Fashions, you can be sure that they’re going to fit your window properly. Our experts come directly to your home to precisely measure. Many people purchase their window treatments directly online or through a catalog and then take the risk of the coverings not fitting properly. After we’ve provided you with a free consultation that entails properly measuring your windows, we invite you to come see our showroom. There, you’ll be able to see firsthand an example of every single Hunter Douglas shade, blind, or shutter that is sold. You can view directly our wide range of color options and you’ll be able to touch every type of fabric or material we have to offer. This way, there will be no surprises when we come to install your new treatments. You’ll be getting exactly what you want and exactly what you expect. By purchasing treatments that fit your glass impeccably and look flawless, you are making sure to retain the value of your home so that when/if the time comes, you can sell it quickly and at the right price. Old, faded, and broken window coverings will make your home less desirable to potential buyers.
Huge glass windows are certainly beautiful in the middle of the day. Let the natural light into your home and also enjoy the view you have on the other side of the glass. But, what happens at night? Many don’t enjoy the thought of others being able to see into their home once the sun goes down. The best solution to this is to cover your glass with shades that can open completely during the day but can also close fully at sundown. This will give you peace of mind knowing that you and your family are protected from outside view. When families approach us with this dilemma, one of our favorites to recommend is the Hunter Douglas Silhouette™ shade.
The Silhouette™ shade is absolutely perfect because it combines beauty and elegance with functionality. The S-shaped vanes almost appear to be floating between sheer panels. You can open them just slightly or you can pull them up completely to let all the sunlight in. Many of our customers tell us that the Silhouette shade is the most luxurious of all. The great part about the Silhouette shade (as well as a lot of other Hunter Douglas shades) is that there are several different options available to customize your shades. If you like a completely blacked out look, then the Silhouette Duolite™ shade is perfect as it has a room darkening roller shade nestled right behind the Silhouette™. You can also integrate these shades with Hunter Douglas PowerView® Motorization and schedule times throughout the day to open and close your shades. The convenience is remarkable—you won’t even have to blink.
Over time, ultraviolet light, visible light, and solar heat all contribute to the fading of furniture upholstery, wood, art, paintings, and other items, bringing down the value of your home and other property you own. While keeping your shades open during the day can sometimes be nice, it’s important not to do it all the time, especially when the sun is at its strongest point, or if you’re out of town. Hunter Douglas window treatments have the ability to draw natural light into your home without shining directly on your furniture and floors and fading the color. Our coverings are also energy efficient so that you can save on your energy consumption in the winter as well as in the summer.
We are happy to offer a completely free consultation to any and all customers interested in customized window coverings. Through coming to your home and assessing your needs, we are attempting to streamline the process of choosing the best treatments for your windows. While the process can be time-consuming and stressful, we are here to give you an experience that will always put you first.
