What Do We Have to Think About?

How Are Choices Made?

Coordinating the style of your home is easy with today’s textiles. They’ll create a beautiful backdrop while adding tremendous lifestyle solutions. And, if you’ve done this before, you may already have favorites, but you should see what’s new! Our window covering specialists will be with you, offering inspiration, advice and samples of materials to help you choose.

When Should We Start?

Have you started selecting paint colors? That’s a great time to also be browsing fabrics for window treatments. You may have a good idea of what kind of window coverings you like, but the fabrics will add a level of style. We’ll have inspirational photos to help you envision the overall look. We are happy to meet for a design consultation to start the process! Our showroom, located in Fort Myers, is a great place to start. Come visit to see the latest fabrics and features.

Smart Home

Interested in Automatic Blinds & Shades?

With all of the latest features in smart home technology, you may be considering motorized shades. Do you know they can be hardwired as part of new construction or the remodeling process?  Involving us from the get-go allows the groundwork and wiring to start as soon as the framing is in place–with an electrician or low voltage specialist. This keeps you from using batteries for your smart blinds.

Wiring in Place?

Let us know! We will be happy to send an automation consultant to your home, confirming whether existing wiring can be used, or if there is another alternative.

What About Smart Homes?

Our Hunter Douglas smart shades are compatible with many integration systems on the market, including Apple HomeKit, Alexa, Control 4, Google Home, Elan, Lutron and more. Our motorization experts are specially trained and certified to integrate your automated blinds with your smart home system.

Selection

How Do We Choose the Functional Features?

It’s similar to planning a new construction home or remodeling, you’ll select features based on each individual space. A great example would be the bedrooms, where you’ll most likely select room darkening blinds. The foyer? That’s where many clients decide on window coverings that maintain privacy, yet they bring in natural light. We’ll walk through the vision of each space with you, discussing function and what you’re looking for.

What’s Comes Next?

It’s time to measure. Final measurements can usually be taken once the framing and sheetrock is up–mudding and taping complete. While your home may seem far from finished, we’ll be able to get the information we need.

The Process is Customized.

Our design consultants will guide you through the process–that fits you best. Some clients choose to stagger ordering, getting high priority rooms done, then deciding on others later.
