Modern day conveniences help you boost the enjoyment of your home by improving functionality and comfort. But modern efficiency doesn’t have to come in the form of an extravagant smart home assistant or a fridge with a TV screen. Instead, even simple amenities such as your window treatments can be refreshed with all kinds of helpful features. Finding the time to explore these features will often augment your home’s energy efficiency, sense of privacy and security, and more!
You can modernize your window treatments in quite a few ways, ranging from their essential design to how you use and adjust them. What’s more, convenient functionality doesn’t mean you sacrifice style, since modern window treatments strike the best of both worlds. A local design consultant can offer support as you create your perfect pair of custom window treatments with a free virtual or in-home consultation.
Enhance Energy Efficiency with Insulated Shades
Strong energy efficiency is one of the most important elements of a modern home, since it boosts your sense of comfort while keeping monthly energy bills lower. Big windows can be a source of heating and air conditioning loss, at least before you upgrade your window treatments. Modern designs implement strong energy efficiency as a core feature, while still supplying an attractive final look.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades are a great example. The pleated cell design traps pockets of air between a window and the rest of the room, creating a layer of insulation that holds heating and air conditioning where it belongs. These stunning shades are offered in a number of fabric opacities to help you fine-tune how much sunlight gets in.
Optimal Security with Exterior Hurricane Shutters
Another essential aspect of a modern home is a robust sense of safety and protection against both intruders and intense weather events. But instead of investing in complex security systems or a storm shelter, you can strengthen your home or business’ security with exterior shutter window treatments. Made from tough stainless steel, custom exterior shutters can resist hurricane-force winds.
LouverShield™ Hurricane Shutters effortlessly endure even the strongest weather events. They can be enclosed in lightweight, discreet housing when not in use, minimizing impact on your property’s curb appeal. While manual operation is simple and convenient, these hurricane shutters can also be motorized, remote controlled from indoors, and even structured into a number of existing automation systems!
Modern Style and Smart Operation with Roller Shades
While convenience is important, you can’t rule out stylish design when it comes to modernizing your home. Neat lines and subtle details are the key benefits of modern looks, making roller and solar shades a brilliant option. They’re designed to sit as close to the windowpane as possible, decreasing the light that penetrates into the room. But if you favor a warm glow, sheer fabrics do the trick.
Designer Roller Shades can be customized with more than 300 assorted fabrics, letting you highlight your distinct sense of style. These fabulous shades can also be motorized and remotely controlled via a Wi-Fi operating system, perfect for convenience or high-up windows. This also makes them more secure for homes with pets or young children.
