Time to Begin
Make the Move All It Can Be.
It’s an exciting adventure, building or renovating a home. But, without proper window coverings, you could be wrestling with poor sleep, exhausted children, frustrating temperatures and terrible glare. Not only that, but your neighbors will have a view right into your home. Don’t settle for bare windows. It doesn’t have to be that way. This is where it’s important to understand the timeline. Once you place your final order, window coverings can be installed–usually–between 4 to 6 weeks later. Wouldn’t it be great to have everything in place from the start?
How Do We Make Choices?
Today’s trends make it easy to coordinate and highlight the style of your home. Window treatments not only add beauty, but they provide tremendous lifestyle benefits. Have you done this before? You may have ideas about your favorites, but you should definitely see the newest statements and features. You’ll sit one-on-one with a window covering specialist that can help you discover past favorites or the latest designs. We’ll help you narrow down selections based on inspirational photos and fabric samples.
When Is the Right Time to Start?
If you’ve picked paint colors, it’s time to select your window treatments. You can browse fabrics and styles to fit each space in your home, or choose a common statement throughout. The possibilities are endless! We are happy to meet you for a design consultation in one of our showrooms, or right in your home.
Smart Home Integration
Interested in Smart Shades and Automated Blinds?
If you’re building a new home or renovating, you probably know how many smart home features are on the market. If you’re interested in the convenience, savings and security of motorized shades, now’s the perfect time. Getting us involved from the start will help, as we can ensure the groundwork and proper wiring is in place to hardwire your smart shades. This will keep you from having to use batteries.
The Proper Wiring
Is it possible that the wiring is in place already? We’d love to check it out. One of our automation consultants can visit to confirm that the existing wiring can be used. If not, we may be able to provide alternative options.
The Details on Smart Homes
One of the best parts about choosing to install Hunter Douglas smart shades is the compatibility. With so many smart home systems on the market, you may be wondering if yours is capable. In almost all cases, the answer is yes! Our motorization experts are certified and trained to help you with the integration process. This includes Alexa, Apple HomeKit, Google Home, Control 4, Elan, Lutron & so many more.
The Selection Process
How Do We Know Which Features to Choose?
Just like you’ve been planning your new home build, or your remodeling project, you’ll choose the features based on individual spaces. Think about the bedrooms–you’ll most likely want room darkening shades. In your child’s bedroom, cordless will be a priority. One by one, your window covering specialist will walk through the considerations with you, so you’re choosing the best features for your home and your family.
The Next Step
After your selections are made, it will be time for us to measure. This can be done even when the home seems like it’s far from complete. We’ll set up a time with you, or the general contractor, after the framing and sheetrock is in place, all mudded and taped.
We Customize the Process.
Your design consultant will guide the process, but it’s truly customized for you. We’ll help you make selections for products, fabrics and features. But, you can choose what’s implemented and when. Some clients choose to offset the ordering process. They’ll stagger the order, to get high priority rooms done first, with a plan to complete the rest later. You set the timeline.
What Should We Know About Budgeting?
If this is your first time getting quotes for window treatments, or even if you’ve done this before–but it’s been awhile–having to budget might surprise you. The industry of window coverings has seen major innovations, offering incredible style and function. You’ll likely see the necessity to budget, no matter which company you choose to work with. What you should know–is what you’re getting with this investment.
We strive to offer the highest quality products with customized features to fit your home and your budget. That’s why we say that the process is really up to you. You can set the affordability with a range of products, all customized to your home. This is one more part where your window covering specialist plays a big role.
