Today’s Smart Shades Bring Customized Beauty and Control
Some of the window treatment design trends making headlines in 2022 result from the unexpected stay-at-home world we encountered. Suddenly, we looked at our home and our world a little differently. We wanted a space that allowed for privacy yet let us look out on the world we suddenly cherished a little bit more. We wanted to feel safe and secure while simultaneously feeling open and free. We wanted beauty and ambiance while mindful of our place in the world and the need for sustainable practices. In essence, our home became a haven.
You may be surprised to learn that motorized window treatments can provide all of that and more. Let’s explore the latest window coverings and the benefits they’re bringing to homes in La Jolla, CA.
Eco-Friendly & Energy Efficient
Cellular shades continue to grow in demand. These shades offer a unique cell construction that fills with air and provides an added insulation layer. These shades can either keep the warm or cool air in depending on the season. Lutron, our window covering partner and an industry leader, offers single and double-cell Honeycomb shades. Their fabrics are also made from sustainable materials.
Designed for Unique Architecture
As homes became extensions of ourselves, so did their design. Windows in varying shapes and sizes gave us shafts of sunlight. Skylights became larger, and floor-to-ceiling windows revealed the beautiful outdoor oasis we finally took the time to enjoy. Lutron’s tensioned shades offer solutions for skylights and angled windows, providing customized light control. Their roller window coverings offer near silent control of up to 225 square feet of fabric for window walls and atriums.
Material for Every Occasion and Room
As our homes became our place of work, rest, and entertainment, we needed window treatments that offered flexibility. Dual rollers became more common, letting us change the material and function of our shades with one touch. When it’s time for movie night or bed, we select the blackout shades that leave our rooms in total darkness. When we want to enjoy the view, we lower sheer shades that offer an open weave. And all with one touch of a button.
Sunlight offers several benefits. When it touches our skin, we make vitamin D. When it shines in our eyes, our brains make serotonin, our “happy” hormone. It regulates our circadian rhythm, helping us sleep better. Lutron’s sheer curtains or light-filtering cellular shades allow diffuse light in while protecting our furniture and fine art.
Imagine your shades automatically rising with the first rays of the sun and lowering as night falls in perfect unison. With one touch of a button on a wall-mounted keypad, remote, or touchscreen, your sheer shades lower, your lights settle into the perfect hue, and your relaxing playlist streams through your home and yard. All of this, and so much more, is possible with Control4 home automation.
