Our home remains very much close to our hearts. I believe that how we design our home shows our creativity, and the design of the house comes from our soul.

Homes represent your creativity, status, stability and a lot more.

A new home is the beginning of a new life, and wherever you go, at the end of the day, you come to your home to relax, spend time with your family, and have fun.

So design homes that provide calmness and look good to your eyes and soul.

And nowadays houses have become the workplace for many people, so it becomes paramount to design a home in a way that will maintain your productivity.

In this blog, let’s discuss why blinds and shades are among the few most important items you should keep a note of while designing your interiors and exteriors.

Reasons To Dress Your Exterior With Blinds And Shades

When you design your exterior with shades and blinds, it looks great, and choosing the shades or blinds, which goes with your interior gives a better look to your house. It makes your windows look more consistent from the outside. 

It literally enhances the visual appeal of your house and brings a cheerful mood to your home. With different shades, colours, patterns available, you can change the flavour of your home. You can make your house look professional, classy, fancy or whatever suits your interior and mood.

02 Ensure Privacy

Privacy is most important, and you need 100% privacy in your home. With Hunter Douglas blinds and shades, full privacy is achieved. Their blinds and shades let you enjoy the outside view while maintaining privacy simultaneously.

03 Enhance Your Productivity Even At Home

After the pandemic, most people work from home, so we all need the right environment to achieve the right amount of productivity. 

But due to issues like scorching sunlight disturbing you or temperature getting too warm, you are unable to focus properly. With shades and blinds, the amount of sunlight is controlled, and the temperature is well maintained inside your house. Some fabrics even come with sound absorption properties. So maximum outside noise gets absorbed. 

So with hunter Douglas exterior blinds and shades, you can work comfortably in your house as well.

04 Save Energy, Environment And Your Body

Shades and blinds save energy consumption. It is true that during summer, due to the sun’s scorching heat, you get irritated as the temperature is at its peak. So, you switch on the A.C. to cool your room, which is not great for the environment. 

30% of home cooling and heating energy is lost through the windows. Hunter Douglas shades cleverly trap the air through the cells and provide proper temperature control. 

So shades and blinds are a great way to save energy, your health and your pockets.

05 Protect You and Your Furniture

Shades and blinds protect your furniture from harmful U.V. rays and infrared rays of the sun. Most of the shades in the Hunter Douglas collection blocks U.V. rays by 99%

They keep your house clean as they block most of the harmful sun rays and dust entering your house. So, cleanliness is maintained in your home. 

Hunter Douglas has made blinds and shades in such a way that minimum effort is required to clean these shades. Moreover, they also keep bugs and flies away from your house.
