What About Style Choices?

Because you want your new home to feature beautiful style, there’s no easier way than with window treatments.

During your one-on-one consultation with a window covering specialist, you’ll define what you love–whether that’s through textures, colors or patterns. Choices are narrowed down by browsing fabric samples while viewing inspirational photos.

You’ve chosen paint colors. If you’re looking for a reference, that’s around the time that you’ll want to start choosing window treatments. There’s time to make selections without rushing. Plus, you’ll be exploring the color schemes that feel right to you. Once paint colors have been chosen, you’ll be able to decide whether you want individual colors for certain rooms, or if you want a common statement throughout. This is a great time to meet with us for a consultation right in the showroom, or we can stop by your home to see the progress and chat about the process.

Smart Home System

Curious about Smart Blinds?

Smart homes are on the rise, and if you’re building a new home, you’ve probably heard all about the latest features. Are you considering automated blinds? They easily add to the convenience, energy savings and security we all value. A renovation or new home build is the perfect time to add them in, especially while the groundwork is being done for wiring, if you’d like to avoid using batteries.

Is Wiring in Place?

This question comes up from time-to-time. If you’d like to know if the wiring you have in place is the proper form for smart shades, let us know. We’d be happy to check out the set-up for you. One of our motorization experts can confirm–or, we will be able to identify an alternative option.

Smart Home Integration

Yes–we’re compatible! By choosing Hunter Douglas smart shades, you’re not just choosing simple convenience. You’re making the integration of your smart home system easy and effective, no matter which system you already use. Our PowerView® automation app is designed with customization in mind. And, it can all be set-up during installation by our certified and trained install team.

Details on the Selection Process

Choosing Features…

Just like the selection process you’re going through, building a new home or renovating, the features you choose will meet the function of the individual spaces. A simple example would be the bedrooms of your home. Most likely, you’ll want room darkening and privacy features. If you have small children, you’ll be thinking about cordless and cord-safe features. Going room-by-room, your window covering specialist will walk you through the project.

What’s the Next Step?

Once you’ve chosen features to accompany the style you love, it’s time for us to measure! Even if your home seems far from finished, we can do appropriate measurements in conjunction with your general contractor’s timeline. With the framing and sheetrock in place, mudded and taped, even before painting, everything can be ready for ordering.

It’s a Customized Process.

We are here to work with you. While we guide you through our standard process, it’s really about your comfort level. Choosing products, fabrics and features that fit your life and home is our priority. But, it’s up to when you want your projects completed. Some of our clients are happy to get everything done at once. Others want to stagger the process to implement the priority rooms first, leaving other spaces until a later date. We feel that it’s important for you to understand that you set the timeline.
