“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” William Morris, a 19th-century designer, penned these words over a hundred years ago, but they still hold true today. With PowerView™ Motorization and shades from Hunter Douglas, the window treatments in your East Central Indiana home can be both useful and beautiful. And with the sale at Lucinda’s Interiors running now until September 12th, they are even more affordable.
Traditionally made of vinyl that rolled up on a spindle at the top of the window, shades have evolved into an entire line of window treatments suitable for any type of window or décor. Here is a brief overview of each type.
Roller shades – When it comes to window treatments that can darken a room or provide a clear view of the outdoors, roller shades can’t be beat. They come in a variety of materials, colors, and patterns, can block out damaging UV rays and unwanted sunlight, and disappear completely behind a headrail or valance when not needed.
Honeycomb shades – These shades can also be raised out of view or completely cover a window. Their name derives from the cells they are made of, and they come in single, double, or triple cell options. Each layer of cells adds more energy savings and noise and light reduction to your room.
Roman shades – If you want the softness of fabric but draperies don’t fit your décor, Roman shades may be right for you. They cover a window completely when down, then draw up in soft folds as they are opened.
Woven wood shades – Don’t let the name fool you. These shades aren’t just made of wood, they can also include bamboo shades, reeds and grasses, providing texture and filtering light while adding a natural look to any room.
Maybe you have some windows that you haven’t bought treatments for because they are hard to reach. Maybe you have window shades that you prefer to have open in the morning when you get up and closed in the evening when you get home. PowerView Motorization addresses both of these issues and more.
Remote-controlled – PowerView allows you to operate your window shades with the touch of a button, making hard-to-reach windows more manageable. Several shades can be raised or lowered with the same remote, keeping them even every time they are moved. And if you can’t stand the thought of one more remote sitting on your coffee table, PowerView can be mounted to your wall instead of adding to your tabletop collection.
Tablet or cell phone – For even more convenience, download the PowerView app on your tablet or cell phone to operate your shades even when you are away from home. You can program them to automatically open or close at a certain time of day, or you can adjust them yourself throughout the day, giving the appearance that someone is home.
