Things To Know Before
Window coverings are the ”makeup” or the “jewellery” in a room, providing that finishing touch to a chosen design. Diffusing or redirecting light, providing privacy, room temperature control, and UV protection are the practical reasons for including the window coverings into your home décor.
If you haven’t been shopping for that new look for a while, the products are now as diverse as the reasons you might be doing so. Child safety is of utmost importance. So many styles and operations to choose from will provide you with just what you are looking for with your budget in mind.
Most shades are available in a myriad of fabrics with operating systems that range from chain/cord for simplicity to motorized operation that integrates into your home automation system and can be operated through your phone or tablet.
Custom Covers is a Hunter Douglas Centurion dealer and our installers are certified Pro experts in the integration of the PowerView motorization of your whole home regardless of the style of window shades chosen. For shades that are difficult to reach, or for homeowners desiring increased energy efficiency plus the added benefit of child safety, PowerView Motorization is a top choice in convenience and technological innovation. Control your blinds with the touch of a remote or a tap on a mobile device, whether you’re at home or on vacation. Plus, the operating system can integrate with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant. Hunter Douglas is continually streamlining PowerView Motorization, with a goal to make your home as seamlessly connected as possible.
It is possible to create customized “Scenes” that control all shades in your home, operating together or in any combination you desire. You will have the flexibility to schedule scenes to automatically move your shades to your preferred positions and/or move the shades according to the sun’s daily patterns, increasing energy efficiency. Voice-controlled technology from Amazon and Google add to the convenience of this operating system.
If you are building a new home or doing a major renovation, planning your window treatments at the outset is important so that wiring can be installed along with all the other electrical systems. Battery operation is possible, but, with a large number of motorized window coverings in your home, exchanging and disposing of the batteries can become prohibitive.
If draperies or other soft window treatments are your preference, motorized operation of the drapery hardware is also possible. Custom draperies and soft treatments have the power to transform the entire look and feel of the room by adding a sophisticated sense of comfort and warmth.
Whether you are looking for drapes, side panels, sheers, Roman Shades or premium top treatments, Custom Covers has a full line of top quality fabrics and a multitude of designs from which to select. Our professional design consultants can inspire you to make your home your own unique canvas.
We are excited to announce the upcoming opening of our new Hunter Douglas Gallery showroom located at 1422 Fanshawe Road W., London (just behind Starbucks). We will be providing and even broader range of products and services at a location convenient to you. See you soon!
