One of the best ways to make a house feel like a home is through the installation of window treatments and custom shutters. They are available in a variety of styles and able to coordinate with your lighting conditions, woodwork, artwork, upholstery, floors, furnishings, and most of all, your style. Here are three types of custom shutters and their benefits.
Custom shutters and window treatments are now available in energy efficient models such as cellular honeycomb shades. These custom shades and blinds help reduce energy costs in an area, by retaining the existing warmth or reducing the heat. Gorgeous, attractive designs available in a wonderful variety of colors made with eco-friendly materials make them incredibly popular and appealing.
Motorized home blinds allow you to open, raise and lower your window treatments with the touch of a button. They are extremely beneficial in terms of energy efficiency, since they can reduce the amount of sunlight in an area which will reduce your cooling costs. Most motorized blinds and custom drapes operate on batteries in are very easy to install. Some even have the capability for programming, which allows you to operate them remotely or on a timer. And certain styles operate on voice commands, as well.
You don’t have to live in darkness to be sure you are maintaining your privacy. Soft window treatments such as sheers are now manufactured with fabric that is able to provide a certain amount of light control. Custom shutters are also an excellent alternative for privacy control while still allowing for air and light to enter an area.
The world is becoming more environmentally conscious, and the window treatment industry is a leader in this field. For example, in the United States, the blind and shade manufacturing industry grew, from 2003 to 2018, by approximately 2%. The advent of innovative, high-quality window treatments, and techniques such as motorized window treatments has helped this industry flourish. Also, energy smart designs and the use of eco-friendly fabrics make it certain that this industry will continue to grow. Or, could we say, its future for the window treatment field looks very ‘bright’!
