Four Best Ways to Upgrade Your Window Treatments

Good window treatments are an investment in the function, beauty, and value of your home. When purchasing new window treatments, it’s worth considering how you can go ahead and upgrade them with features that will make you love them more and longer. At Exciting Windows, we’ve put together a quick guide to the Hunter Douglas window treatment upgrades that we think are worth adding on up front.

1. PowerView® Automation

The top upgrade you can add to your window treatments is PowerView® Automation from Hunter Douglas. Available on a wide range of window fashions, from blinds to shades and even shutters, PowerView® is a top-of-the-line motorization system. Your Hunter Douglas window treatments will be effortless to operate with the use of the stylish Pebble® Remote or the PowerView® App. Adjust your window treatments with a touch, automate adjustments according to your schedule, and so much more. With its powerful automation features, PowerView® can help improve your home’s energy efficiency and your quality of rest and relaxation. Best of all, PowerView® Automation integrates seamlessly with popular smart home systems, such as Amazon Alexa, Hey Google, and Apple Homekit, which allows you to control your blinds and shades with the maximum convenience of voice control. Not only do you not have to go adjust each one of your window treatments individually, but you don’t even have to stop what you’re doing with this handy feature. That makes PowerView® Automation a smart upgrade.

2. Duolite®

When you choose Duolite® for your Hunter Douglas Shades, such as Vignette® Modern Roman Shades or Designer Roller Shades, you get double the benefit on a single shade. Duolite® adds an opaque rear liner that can be operated separately from the light-filtering sheer in the front. That gives you the privacy and blackout function you need and the flexible lighting you want.

3. LightLock™

Duette® Honeycomb Shades are among our favorite window treatments for bedrooms, since the energy-efficient cellular structure helps keep your room at a comfortable temperature and quiet enough to promote rest. With LightLock™ they are even better. Innovative micro-ridges on the side channel absorb and deflect incoming light for a complete blackout effect. The stray light that slips around the edges of most blackout shades can be very disruptive for sleep, but LightLock™ has a u-shaped side channel that overlaps with the shades to prevent this.

4. de-Light™

Blinds are notorious for providing privacy but insufficient light control. Hunter Douglas blinds, however, are available with de-Light™, which eliminates cord route holes and other sources of light leakage to provide a superior blackout effect. de-Light™ is available on all Hunter Douglas blinds, including Parkland® Wood Blinds, EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds, and Modern Precious Metals® Aluminum Blinds.
