You’ll rarely hear anyone complain about a sunny day throughout the New York or New Jersey areas. We relish every glorious beam–especially as Autumn arrives, heading us into the doldrums of winter. Sunlight gives us energy and improves our mood. It’s nature’s antidepressant. However, when not controlled in your home, natural light can really get you down. The chic, elegant space you carefully designed quickly turns into a sauna with blinding glare and damaged decor. The good news is that it doesn’t have to! Keep your home stylish and your spirits high with the right window coverings. Are you thinking about making a change? Our Season of Savings promotion offers some of Hunter Douglas’ most popular window shades with amazing savings for you! Here’s a glimpse at how before and after window coverings can radically improve the look and feel of your home.
A Familiar Scene
Large-scale windows, similar to these, are likely a centerpiece of your home. There’s nothing finer than sitting down with a cup of coffee and taking in your beautiful landscape from your favorite chair…except when the sun’s out and you can’t see it at all! Harsh glare is just one problem, though. UV rays are streaming in along with that sunlight. Over time, they damage and discolor your prized furnishings, flooring, and art. Another negative effect that you can’t see, but you can certainly feel, is the temperature. Excessive natural lighting from your floor-to-ceiling windows can overheat the interior of your home. So, rather than relaxing, all you can think about is escaping. If this “before” scene is one you can relate to, it’s time to experience the “after” of before and after window coverings.
Just look at the difference! It’s almost unbelievable, but believe us, this can be a reality in your home. With the simple addition of Duette shades, the sun’s glare is no longer in full force. Soft, ambient lighting fills the room thanks to the top-down bottom-up feature of these shades. This makes it possible to appreciate the smart interior design. Colors stand out and will remain vibrant because the shades, while adding their own element of beauty, also block harmful UV rays. While it looks great, you can bet the room feels great too. With the highest standards of energy-efficiency, Duette shades are perfect for helping to maintain a comfortable, consistent temperature throughout the year. Plus, the automation of PowerView motorization makes taking in the view effortless when the time is right. Once the sun isn’t so strong, one touch of a button, or one tap on your favorite device, will move your shades to reveal the breathtaking panorama that lives just outside your windows.
