Building or Renovating - Don't Forget Your Blinds

With summer over and the cooler weather approaching, many of us will start planning a home renovation or possibly a new home build.
There are so many things to think of and consider when starting a project, such as lighting, flooring, colours and furniture.
While these items are all necessary, are forgetting something major?

Window Treatments!

Window coverings, be it draperies, blinds or shutters can finish a space while providing light control, privacy and aesthetic appeal.
Most home owners are concerned about energy savings and protecting the interior finishes of their home from the damaging effects of the sun. Blinds offer all of these features and yet it is usually one of the last things people think about when renovating or building.
This also means that they usually havenít set aside any of the budget for window treatments.
Hunter Douglas has blinds and shutters to fit all budgets. But if you donít budget for window coverings in the planning stages of a renovation, you may limit yourself to what you can choose from.
It is never too early to start thinking about how you will treat your windows. Here are some very important questions to ask yourself:

  • Which direction do the windows face? Knowing if you will have soft morning light or intense afternoon sun will help decide what type of blinds to look at.
  • Will your home be automated? Hunter Douglas has automated blinds using the
    Powerview App. During construction is the best time to run any wires for any home automation needs. We are Hunter Douglas Motorization Specialist and can assist in the planning .
  • Are you selecting specialty shaped windows? Hunter Douglas does have a selection of products that can be manufactured in specialty shapes, but you are limited to certain styles and this will increase the cost.

There are so many things to consider when purchasing window coverings and it is difficult to keep up with all of the new innovations. That is why we are trained on all of the different Hunter Douglas products, so we can be your window covering experts.

We can also help you with custom draperies! We have a large selections of designer fabrics to choose from and have local sewing rooms to assist us with the manufacturing.
