Modern day conveniences help you maximize the enjoyment of your home by improving functionality and comfort. But modern efficiency doesn’t need to come in the form of a fancy smart home assistant or a fridge with a TV screen. Alternatively, even standard amenities such as your window treatments can be refreshed with all types of beneficial features. Putting in the time to check out these features can augment your home’s energy efficiency, sense of privacy and security, and more!
You can overhaul your window treatments in a lot of ways, ranging from their basic design to how you use and readjust them. What’s more, comfortable 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 find your optimal pair of custom window treatments with a free virtual or in-home consultation.
Enhance Energy Efficiency with Insulated Shades
High energy efficiency is one of the most essential elements of a modern home, since it improves your sense of comfort while keeping monthly energy bills lower. Your windows can be a source of heating and air conditioning loss, at least until you update your window treatments. Modern designs prioritize strong energy efficiency as a core feature, while still offering an attractive final appearance.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades are a good example. The pleated cell design contains pockets of air between a window and the rest of the room, building a layer of insulation that holds heating and air conditioning where it belongs. These gorgeous shades are available in a number of fabric opacities to help you refine how much sunlight gets through.
Max Security with Exterior Hurricane Shutters
Another important aspect of a modern home is a well-defined sense of safety and protection against both intruders and extreme weather events. But rather than invest in elaborate 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 stand up to hurricane-force winds.
LouverShield™ Hurricane Shutters comfortably hold up against even the most severe weather events. They can be enclosed in lightweight, subdued housing when not in use, minimizing impact on a property’s curb appeal. While standard operation is smooth and convenient, these hurricane shutters can also be motorized, remote controlled from indoors, and even incorporated into a number of existing automation systems!
Trendy Style and Smart Operation with Roller Shades
While convenience is important, you can’t rule out contemporary design when it comes to modernizing your home. Pristine lines and subtle detail are the key benefits of modern styles, making roller and solar shades an excellent option. They’re designed to sit as close to the windowpane as possible, decreasing the light that reaches the rest of the space. But if you favor a warm glow, sheer fabrics deliver.
Designer Roller Shades can be customized with more than 300 assorted fabrics, enabling you to highlight your distinct sense of style. These exquisite shades can also be motorized and remotely controlled using a Wi-Fi operating system, perfect for convenience or high-up windows. This also makes them a safe choice for homes with pets or young children.
Explore Shutter Styles with Our Visualizer Tool
The ageless look of plantation shutters are a great fit for the modern home but comparing all the different customization options can seem a little intimidating.
