The Look, Feel, and Functional Uses of Motorized Window Coverings
Multifunctional Motorized Window Treatments Come in an Array of Colors, Styles, and Materials
Many of our clients just delving into the world of smart home automation start by asking questions about motorized window treatments for their homes on the Main Line in Pennsylvania. They’ve heard how easy these window treatments are to use because of the technology that’s transformed home management, but are unclear about which rooms these window coverings are best suited for, the different types, and the available texture and fabric.
So, we decided to take a moment to address those questions here. You may be surprised at the great array of choices and uses today’s motorized window treatments offer.
Roller shades are one of the most versatile motorized window coverings. These shades come in numerous types of fabric, creating the ideal light for any space. Dim-out materials offer the ultimate in privacy, while blackout fabrics provide 100% opacity and eliminate all daylight.
At SoundWaves, we partner with Lutron, a U.S.-based company that is always at the forefront of shade technology and aesthetic design and offers an extensive selection of traditional and contemporary fabrics and designs.
Horizontal Sheer Shades
Sheer horizontal shades soften the glare of the sun while allowing diffuse light to filter into the room. As a result, homeowners achieve privacy while still viewing the outdoors through the beautiful luminescent fabric.
Sheer shades also filter out the direct, harsh rays of the sun, protecting furniture, artwork, and flooring from fading and the harmful effects of UV light. We can also integrate this translucent shading with a room-darkening shade that is perfect for movie nights or for those that prefer to sleep in ultimate darkness.
Bug screens appear and disappear at the touch of a button through special motorized models. They’re perfect for homeowners looking for protection from insects while still letting fresh air in or allowing the sun to stream through crystal clear glass when windows are closed.
SoundWaves installs these screens on patio windows, large picture windows, and even garage door openings. Ideally, we add bug screens during the construction phase, but they can be installed at any time. We partner with Insolroll, a company that excels in the creation of best-in-class insect screens and solar insect shades that protect you from the glare of the direct sun as well as bugs.
Real wood blinds provide a rich and elegant appearance that blends in with the details of a home. Whether knotty pine, classic oak, maple, hickory, or birch, homeowners and designers can choose from an array of colors and textures that add a stylish look to any home or décor.
Custom Fabric Flat Romans and Drapes
We partner with Kravet, a high-end fabric company that offers materials for Roman shades and drapery. Use any Kravet fabric or use your own. We can customize your roman shades and drapery in our local workroom.
Flat roman shades hang flat, offering a smooth, seamless shade that can make a bold statement or blend in with the surrounding décor. Draperies offer flowing elegance in numerous textures, patterns, and colors.
The Power of Automation
When these unique window coverings combine with the power of smart home automation, you can control them with the touch of a button on your remote control, tablet, or smartphone from anywhere in the world.
