Modern conveniences help you maximize the enjoyment of your home by improving functionality and comfort. But modern convenience doesn’t have to come in the form of a fancy smart home assistant or a fridge with a TV screen. Instead, even basic amenities like your window treatments can be modernized with all kinds of useful features. Taking the time to explore these features could improve your home’s energy efficiency, sense of privacy and security, and more!

You can modernize your window treatments in a number of ways, ranging from their core design to how you use and adjust them. What’s more, convenient functionality doesn’t mean you lose out on style, because modern window treatments offer the best of both worlds. A local design consultant can help you find your perfect pair of custom window treatments with a free virtual or in-home consultation.

Improve Energy Efficiency with Insulated Shades

High energy efficiency is one of the most important elements of a modern home, because it improves your sense of comfort while keeping monthly energy bills affordable. Your windows can be a source of heating and air conditioning loss, at least until you upgrade your window treatments. Modern designs implement high energy efficiency as a core feature, while still offering an attractive final look.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades are a great example. Their pleated cell design traps pockets of air between your window and the rest of the room, forming a layer of insulation that keeps heating and air conditioning where it belongs. These beautiful shades come in a variety of fabric opacities to help you fine-tune how much sunlight gets through.

Maximum Security with Exterior Hurricane Shutters

Another key 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 fancy security systems or a storm shelter, you can bolster 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 easily withstand even the strongest weather events. They can be contained in small, subtle housing when not in use, minimizing impact on your property’s curb appeal. While manual operation is smooth and convenient, these hurricane shutters can also be motorized, remote controlled from indoors, and even integrated into your existing automation system!

Modern 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. Clean lines and subtle detail are the hallmarks of modern styles, making roller and solar shades an excellent option. They’re designed to sit as close to the windowpane as possible, minimizing the light that gets through. But if you prefer a warm glow, sheer fabrics get the job done.

Designer Roller Shades can be customized with more than 300 different fabrics, letting you capture your personal sense of style. These beautiful shades can also be motorized and remotely controlled via 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.
