What happens in your home when the remote control to the TV is misplaced? Chances are everyone searches trying to find it because we all enjoy the modern convenience of not having to get up and walk to the TV to adjust the volume or channel. If you’ve upgraded your devices, you might even use a mobile app on your phone to control your TV to enjoy even greater convenience. So many of these items help us accomplish tasks that seem relatively minor, but when we lose that convenience, we are extremely frustrated. Our time is valuable, so if the technology exists, why not take advantage of it? We at Richmond Decorating believe that modern technology can enhance our lives, and that is why we carry window treatments equipped with Hunter Douglas PowerView® Automation.
PowerView® Automation is an award-winning operating system for window treatments. PowerView® won the Red Dot Product Design Award in 2018, which is an award that celebrates innovation and quality in design. This operating system is wireless, eliminating the need for long cords and cables that can pose a threat to your pets and children. Most window treatments with this system are battery-powered, which makes them easy to install and maintain. This battery pack is hidden behind the headrail, so your window’s appearance remains tidy. The system is all tied together with the PowerView Hub, which connects your window treatments through your WiFi network and enables you to control them easily. If you have a larger home or window treatments in different rooms with walls blocking the signal, the PowerView Repeater can extend the Hub’s signal throughout your home.
If you have younger children without smart devices or like having specific controls for different devices, you can control your window treatments with the Pebble® Remote. Using the remote, you can control up to six different groups of window treatments. The remote is available in different colors and is uniquely designed in an ergonomic fashion, so the device itself makes a statement. If you’re worried about losing the remote, you can opt for the wall-mounted Pebble Surface Remote instead.
However, for many people, the biggest benefit of motorized window treatments is that they can be controlled with a compatible Apple or Android device. Using the PowerView App, you can control your window treatments with the swipe of a finger. You can label each window treatment within the app and assign them to a room. Then you can control your window treatments individually or as groups. If you want to optimize your light control and the efficiency of your home, you can even schedule Scenes that specify your preferred window treatments positions for different times of the day. If you take advantage of smart home or voice-activated devices such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, you can even control your window treatments using those devices.

Come see us today at Richmond Decorating for help with choosing Hunter Douglas premium shades for homes.
There are quite a few styles of premium shades to choose from so the decision can be overwhelming. In order to guarantee that you find the perfect fit for your Richmond, Virginia home, it is best to familiarize yourself with the products available to see which style and benefits align with what you are looking for in a window treatment.
Silhouette® Window Shadings
The Silhouette® Window Shadings are known for their innovative design and striking appearance. With the Silhouette® shade, you are guaranteed to get a window treatment that is as smart as it is beautiful. If you are most concerned about light control, then this is the shade for you because it has been the top product for diffusion of light for over twenty years. The vanes in the shade have a subtle S shape positioned between two different fabrics that are sheer to allow light to filter in beautifully.
However, just because the fabrics are sheer does not mean that you can’t maintain a level of privacy. You can adjust the shades depending on your desired amount of light and privacy. There are multiple fabrics to choose from to customize your Silhouette® shade that filter out the sun’s rays to provide UV protection to your home.
Luminette® Privacy Sheers
On the other hand, if your main concern for your home is maintaining a certain level of privacy, then you should consider the Luminette® Privacy Sheers. The term sheer might cause you to question the effectiveness of this window treatment in terms of providing privacy, but the sheer fabric is actually fixed to vertical vanes that rotate for you to position the window treatment how you prefer. Although this style of premium shade can coordinate with a multitude of different window sizes and shapes, the Luminette® sheer works particularly well with larger sliding glass doors and wider windows in your home.
There is a variety of different fabrics ranging in texture, color and pattern that will allow you to have your custom premium shade be both decorative and functional. You can choose a bolder pattern to emphasize your current decor or choose a texture that blends well with the rest of your home. When the vanes of the shade are open, the light will filter in your space through the fabric of your choice. However, you can position the vanes however you prefer or completely close them for maximum privacy.
These styles are only two examples of the multiple styles of premium shades from Hunter Douglas, including Vignette®, Pirouette®, Solera®, Sonnette™ and Duette®. Come see us today at Richmond Decorating to find the perfect style of premium shade for your Richmond, Virginia home. We have showrooms in Richmond and Glen Allen, Virginia and proudly serve the areas of Henrico, Manakin-Sabot, Midlothian, Mosley, and Chesterfield, VA.
