Modern conveniences help you increase the enjoyment of your home by strengthening functionality and comfort. But modern convenience doesn’t have to come in the form of an extravagant smart home assistant or a fridge with a TV screen. Rather, even basic amenities like your window treatments can be modernized with all sorts of helpful features. Putting in the time to check out these features can improve your home’s energy efficiency, sense of privacy and security, and more!
You can modernize your window treatments in a number of ways, which range from their basic design to how you use and maintain them. What’s more, comfortable functionality doesn’t mean you sacrifice style, as modern window treatments provide the best of both worlds. A local design consultant can help you discover 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 essential elements of a modern home, as it improves your sense of comfort while keeping monthly energy bills budget friendly. Large or loose windows can be a source of heating and air conditioning loss, at least before you update your window treatments. Modern designs implement strong energy efficiency as a core feature, while still supplying an attractive final appearance.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades are a great example. The pleated cell design contains pockets of air between the window and the rest of the room, building a layer of insulation that retains heating and air conditioning where it should be. These stunning shades come in a variety of fabric opacities to help you fine-tune how much sunlight is let in.
Max Security with Exterior Hurricane Shutters
Another essential component of a modern home is a clear sense of safety and protection against both trespassers and intense weather events. But as an alternative to investing in complex security systems or a storm shelter, you can bolster your home or business’ security with exterior shutter window treatments. Made from sturdy stainless steel, custom exterior shutters can resist hurricane-force winds.
LouverShield™ Hurricane Shutters comfortably hold up against even the strongest weather events. They can be contained in small, subdued housing when not in use, minimizing 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 integrated into a number of existing automation systems!
Contemporary Style and Smart Operation with Roller Shades
While convenience is worthwhile, you can’t rule out contemporary design when it comes to modernizing your home. Neat lines and subtle detail are the hallmarks of modern looks, making roller and solar shades an excellent option. They’re fashioned to sit as close to the windowpane as possible, minimizing the light that gets through. But if you are looking for a warm glow, sheer fabrics get the job done.
Designer Roller Shades can be customized with more than 300 different fabrics, letting you display your personal sense of style. These beautiful shades can also be motorized and remotely controlled using a Wi-Fi operating system, ideal for convenience or hard-to-reach windows. This also makes them safer for homes with pets or young children.
