Moving into a brand-new home is exciting, but it also can prompt a little stress. With so many decisions—from furniture placement to room style—you could be a little overwhelmed. At Windows, Walls & More here in West Bloomfield, we don’t want your window fashions to add to the stress. We’ll be more than happy to help you navigate all the choices and benefits so you know you’re getting window coverings that will work for your needs for years to come.
Questions to Consider
Consider what your home needs. For example, are your neighbors very close, or do you have some space for privacy? Do you have specialty shaped windows? Will direct sunlight impact one or more of your rooms? How close to the road are you? What do you need for curb appeal? Will you want full black-out for your bedrooms or a media room? These are a few of the questions a Windows, Walls & More specialist will want to understand to best help you find the right products. Read on to learn about how you can address some of these things with Hunter Douglas products.
Understanding how you need your new window treatments to function is just as important as how they look. If you’re looking for blackout options, check out the Duolite® feature, which is available on certain product lines. With Duolite, you basically get two shades in one—a blackout layer that offers increased privacy, and a sheer layer that allows light diffusion. Also look to features that block rout holes in blinds and shutters. And with Honeycomb Shades, you could add the Lightlock™ technology, which gives you a unique system of side channels designed to trap and deflect light, leaving your room in complete darkness. Lift systems are also important. Motorization systems are very popular, and can help you operate window treatments in hard-to-reach windows, such as in skylights, up in vaulted ceilings, or behind bath tubs.
Savings at the Window
Adding a covering to a window will help with your electric bills because the treatment can help insulate from outside temperatures, block direct sunlight, and keep inside air in. On top of that, Hunter Douglas makes some treatments specifically designed to offer the greatest energy efficiency around. In fact, the Attachments Energy Rating Council (AERC) chose ® Honeycomb Shades, Applause® Honeycomb Shades, and Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades as the first to receive their verified energy rating and certification for interior window coverings.
Child and Pet Safety
While all of our window treatments have safety features for children and pets, some go way above and beyond accepted safety standards. Cordless operating systems, for example, are the gold standard for window covering safety. And the cream of that crop is the PowerView® Motorization system, which can even link to whole-home automation for the utmost in convenience.
