Choose the Right Color, Texture, and Transparency for Motorized Shades


Motorized Window Treatments by Hunter Douglas

Motorized shades are valuable for countless reasons. They save time, automatically keep rooms cool, and award instant privacy at one touch of a button. Smart shades are an excellent solution for hard-to-reach windows like skylights, and vastly beneficial for the elderly and disabled. Plus, they can be integrated with smart systems like Control4.

If you’re an interior designer, you may be wondering how you can factor in design with motorized window treatments. As a smart technology installer in Charlotte, NC, we’ll share the different options you’ll find from one of our favorite brands, Hunter Douglas.

 From Transparent to Blackout

Imagine blinds that let in natural light while still providing privacy. Later in the day, your clients can enjoy the best nap of their lives in a dark room—through the same shades. Hunter Douglas’ Silhouette Duolite is essentially two shades in one. One part is sheer white for privacy and UV protection. The other blind is a room-darkening roller nestled behind it. Your clients can position the roller at any height for custom light control, allowing rooms to have both soft, natural light and comforting darkness at any time.  

Wood and Metal Blinds

Hunter Douglas’ motorized shades aren’t limited to fabrics. You can get creative in your design projects by selecting rustic, natural-looking shades in real wood, faux wood, and precious metals. Perhaps you’re going for an industrial aesthetic and can pick from matte, metallic, and pearlescent metal blinds. In wood, you can choose from anything from white and gray tones to dark wood stains.

Alustra Woven Textures

For the “most luxurious window treatments” by Hunter Douglas, look to their Alustra collection. These motorized shades are offered in globally sourced fabrics, from French linen to charmeuse. They’re made with unique fiber and texture combinations, like tweed or silk, and are provided in roller or Roman shades. Alustra fabrics are also available for skyline gliding window panels, a creative choice for large windows or room dividers. In one tap of a button or through voice command, these eclectic blinds will raise or lower automatically.
