Fighting Fade in Your Lethbridge Home with Hunter Douglas Blinds

A common concern that I find when dealing with windows that have an amazing view is that my clients do not want to lose that view but they experience harsh light throughout the day plus experience fading on their furniture, flooring and wall art. Normandeau Window Coverings Lethbridge has the perfect solution with Hunter Douglas Silhouettes. The Silhouette® Window Shadings from Hunter Douglas features soft adjustable fabric vanes that appear to be floating between two sheer fabric panels that beautifully diffuse harsh sunlight. Simply tilt the vanes to achieve your desired level of light and privacy. Your view is preserved as well as the fading inside your home.

A wonderful feature offered through Normandeau Window Coverings Lethbridge is adding in Hunter Douglas PowerView Motorization to get your beautiful shades moving to your schedule so you can experience light exactly when you want it.  PowerView® Motorization gives you precise and convenient control of your Hunter Douglas window treatments. Shades operate independently, moving only when you choose to schedule them. This is especially beneficial if you have hard to reach windows, windows that are larger in size as well if you have multiple windows that you will opening and closing daily. It is far easier to push a button or have the shades set on a timer to open and close on their own!! One can also use their powerview shades as extra home security. Schedule your shades to open and close at different times through the week to make it look like someone is home!! This is all done through programming where multiple scenes or schedules can be created. Normandeau Window Coverings Lethbridge helps with all of that programming for you.

Programming your window treatments is simple. Operate them from home with the Pebble® Remote Control or through voice activation when PowerView is integrated with smart-home systems such as Amazon Alexa, Siri® on your Apple device or the Google Assistant. For the ultimate in convenience, the PowerView® App is a perfect way to manage your shades when you’re home or away.

This week’s installation included Hunter Douglas Silhouettes with PowerView Motorization. My clients were beyond thrilled with the softness these shades created in their space while still maintaining their beautiful view.

Do you want to add extra PIZZAZZ to your living space? We like to add custom drapery panels from Normandeau Window Coverings Lethbridge. These beautiful panels with fabric from Fabricut – Brio Ogee in color Silver, framed the windows beautifully. They also enhance the view and warm the space. Drapery panels also help with sound absorption and finally add that WOW effect my clients were looking for. When you have tall spaces, floor to ceiling height drapery panels are very elegant. We used KS track from Textile Trimmings to mount the drapery panels so they look like they are floating!! One could mount these drapery panels with hardware comprising of drapery rod, rings and finials however we felt the floating look would be the best treatment for this space.

It is always a good idea to line your drapery panels with either blackout fabric or light filtering fabric. Almost all custom-made draperies or curtains are lined. Lining has several benefits and is why we always recommend doing so.

Lining will protect and help keep your window treatments last longer This is probably the most important reason people consider lining drapery panels. And we agree. Lining your window treatments protects the luxurious fabric you selected from being eaten or weathered by the sun. The fabric on the interior of your window treatments are thereby shielded from the harsh rays of the sun, extending even the most delegate of fabrics a longer window life.

Adding lining adds more body to the drapery and curtains. They look better when they are lined. One of those reasons is because lining drapery panels helps thinner fabrics drape better at the window and makes them look thicker.

Lining also creates a richer color for the face side of the fabric. Without lining drapery panels, your fabric may appear washed out during daytime hours from the sunlight coming through the fabric. A proper lining placed behind your drapes or curtains will give the front (interior) of your window treatments a richer appearance.

Lining drapery panels actually offer more insulation at the window, in turn saving the homeowner both heating and cooling expenses year-round.
