There are few trends more exciting than automation. Our lives all seem to be becoming busier and more complex with each passing day, so it has never been more important to make the most of the free time that we do have in our homes. While automation has a complicated reputation in other areas, it is an unequivocal good when it comes to your home. We spend a lot of time taking care of the places where we live, so why not free up as much time as possible so that we can sit back and relax and enjoy them? You would probably be shocked if you realized how much time you spend adjusting your window treatments, but historically not every window fashion style has been included in the motorization craze. That is about to change. Keep reading to let the team at Creative Hands tell you about custom automated plantation shutters for homes near Fairport, NY.
There are few window coverings that are more instantly iconic that plantation shutters. Bridging the gap between Old World and American charm, and between classic style and modern lines, shutters are a gorgeous window treatment style that offers more than just aesthetics. Shutters also provide you with a unique and targeted approach to light control, allowing you to either move every slat of your shutters simultaneously with the attached louver, or move each individual slat for personalized light control options. Plantation shutters from Hunter Douglas are made from a variety of high-quality, hard materials, including hardwood, a wood and synthetic material hybrid, and Hunter Douglas’s own Polysatin™ material. It is this last option that is used to craft custom automated plantation shutters.
Because window treatments are in constant contact with sunlight, they can end up looking haggard after several years of use. Sunlight can warp, fade, bleach, and yellow window coverings over time, which can be disappointing both for your investment, and for your enjoyment of window fashions that you love.
