Everything in your home is just the way you want it. Each piece of furniture is perfectly placed and comfortable. But out of the corner of your eye, you see gaps of sunlight pour through your blinds. There’s constantly a glare on the television and the room is much hotter with all the light coming in, which makes you constantly have AC on blast.
Is there anything more annoying than having gaps of light pierce through your shades while you’re trying to sleep? Unable to sleep soundly because of unwanted natural light or television glares?
With blackout shades, you’ll be sure to get a full night of sound sleep without those pesky morning rays interrupting your Zzzz’s. Room-darkening blinds and shades are ideal for media rooms, bedrooms, and nurseries and can help your family sleep better, have more privacy, and save energy.
Digital technology has made nearly every aspect of our lives much easier. With just a click of a button, we can do just about anything, including controlling our home window treatments. Blackout blinds, or automatic blinds, are room-darkening shades that make it possible for you to open or close your window covering with just the touch of a button. Seriously, these shades are beyond user friendly. You can control and schedule your window treatment position directly from a remote control or your smartphone or tablet using an app. With blackout blinds, you never have to worry about manually adjusting your window treatments for privacy, comfort, and energy saving again. Hunter Douglas’ PowerView system lets you pre-set your window treatments so they operate on your time, for your convenience. For example, you can schedule your blinds to close at night and open in the morning when you’re ready to wake up to natural light.
Hunter Douglas offers products with maximum light-blocking qualities that are uniquely designed to minimize light gaps, seams, and rout holes such as the de-Light™ feature on many of our horizontal blinds. Hunter Douglas offers a range of fabric and materials to satisfy your room-darkening preferences. Sheer fabrics generally soften and filter sunlight, while semi-opaque and opaque shades almost completely block sunlight.
The PowerView system also has a RemoteConnectTM feature that lets you operate your shades no matter where you are! If you come home late from work, you can easily adjust your blinds using your tablet or smartphone. How easy can it get!
Another favorite feature is that you can coordinate your automatic blinds with your smart thermostat or other smart home devices for whole-home integration. If you’re considering adding automatic blinds or smart technology to your home, please don’t hesitate to contact us with your questions!
