Modern conveniences help you maximize the enjoyment of your home by improving functionality and comfort. But modern efficiency doesn’t always come in the form of a fancy smart home assistant or a fridge with a TV screen. Alternatively, even basic amenities such as your window treatments can be refreshed with all types of beneficial features. Putting in the time to explore these features can augment your home’s energy efficiency, sense of privacy and security, and more!
You can update your window treatments in a lot of ways, ranging from their essential design to how you use and readjust them. What’s more, handy functionality doesn’t mean you miss out on style, since modern window treatments offer the best of both worlds. A local design consultant can help discover your optimal pair of custom window treatments with a free virtual or in-home consultation.
Improve Energy Efficiency with Insulated Shades
Peak energy efficiency is one of the most important elements of a modern home, since it enhances your sense of comfort while keeping monthly energy bills budget friendly. Your windows can be a source of heating and air conditioning loss, at least before you upgrade your window treatments. Modern designs implement high energy efficiency as a core feature, while still providing an attractive final look.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades are a great example. A pleated cell design traps pockets of air between your window and the rest of the room, building a layer of insulation that holds heating and air conditioning where it should be. These stunning shades come in many different fabric opacities to help you refine how much sunlight is let in.
Max Security with Exterior Hurricane Shutters
Another key element of a modern home is a well-defined sense of safety and protection against both intruders and intense weather events. But instead of investing in elaborate security systems or a storm shelter, you can reinforce your home or business’ security with exterior shutter window treatments. Made from durable stainless steel, custom exterior shutters can resist hurricane-force winds.
LouverShield™ Hurricane Shutters comfortably withstand even the strongest weather events. They can be enclosed in small, subdued housing when not in use, decreasing impact on the property’s curb appeal. While manual operation is simple and convenient, these hurricane shutters can also be motorized, remote controlled from indoors, and even incorporated into a number of existing automation systems!
Contemporary Style and Smart Operation with Roller Shades
While convenience is worthwhile, you can’t rule out fashionable design when it comes to modernizing your home. Clean lines and subtle detail are the key benefits of modern looks, making roller and solar shades a fantastic option. They’re designed to sit as close to the windowpane as possible, reducing the light that gets through. But if you are looking for a warm glow, sheer fabrics do the trick.
Designer Roller Shades can be customized with more than 300 assorted fabrics, helping you to highlight your personal sense of style. These beautiful shades can also be motorized and remotely controlled via a Wi-Fi operating system, perfect for convenience or hard-to-reach windows. This also makes them more secure for homes with pets or young children.
