Choosing the proper window treatments for a commercial space is just as important, if not more important, than getting window treatments for your home. At home you only need to contend with you and your family’s tastes and light control needs, but in a commercial space you also need to make sure that your space is hospitable to making potential customers and clients into paying guests. If this is something you aren’t sure how to do, the window treatment experts at Window Magic Blinds & Drapery, Inc. in Houston, TX are here to help.

1. What kind of business do you run?
Different types of businesses have different kinds of ambiance that they need to set in order to communicate their brand and values effectively. High-end restaurants typically have dim lighting, which would necessitate blinds that have more total light control. Similarly, if you are operating a showroom or a retail store, blinds that allow in more light so that your customers can effectively see your wares will be a more effective business strategy.

2. Will someone be available to operate them?
If you have someone in your space who will be able to operate your blinds throughout the day to adjust to the changing position of the sun, that is fantastic. If you don’t, don’t worry: there is an option for you. Hunter Douglas ’s blinds are available to be motorized through the PowerView® motorization system. This allows you to operate your blinds with the touch of a button via the Pebble remote control, or even preprogram them so that they open and close at specific times of day.

3. Trust in Window Magic to help
Here at Window Magic Blinds & Drapery, we pride ourselves in being window treatment experts for more than just residential spaces. We also love helping the Houston, TX area’s businesses make the most of their windows. If you own a commercial space in Houston, TX or the surrounding area, trust in Window Magic Blinds & Drapery to help you find the perfect blinds for any window in your space. Don’t settle for anything less than the top of the line when it comes to your business: let Window Magic make your business shine.

The world of window treatments has exploded over the years with so many different options and styles. Often, they are ordered and installed only to discover that weeks later they no longer are functional or don’t meet expectations. This can be a problem for many homeowners especially with treatments that haven’t been on the market for long. However, Hunter Douglas honeycomb shades (also referred to as cellular shades) have withstood the test of time since they have been released.

Energy Efficiency

Honeycomb shades are designed to provide insulation in the window by trapping air within their uniquely designed cells. This allows the room where they are installed to stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Once the shade is installed you will be able to feel the difference immediately. As hot or cold air passes through the material it gets trapped, keeping the temperature in your home more comfortable, and saving you money on your energy bill. They work so well that it is a good idea to have them installed an inch or so from the glass for the air to circulate to prevent ice buildup on the glass.

Safety

Hunter Douglas’s honeycomb shades are also available in cordless styles, making them safe for children and pets. You simply lift and lower them with your hand and they stay put wherever you want them to. Cords are a safety concern in homes with young children, which is why honeycomb shades from Hunter Douglas can make your home safer. The cordless look is also clean and sleek, giving you aesthetic benefits as well as safety benefits.

Privacy

Honeycomb shades also allow you to control the privacy in your home. These shades give you the option of opening and closing them from the top or the bottom – you can raise the bottom to see out or you can lower the top to keep your privacy while still allowing in natural light. These shades are great for bedrooms, bathrooms, or street level windows where an unwanted view can be blocked while still illuminating your home.

So Many Styles

We offer a wide range of honeycomb shades from Hunter Douglas. The Duette line is Hunter Douglas’s original single and double honeycomb shades that come in a variety of cell sizes and offer a range of light control options. The Alustra collection offers unique fabrics, a distinct look and superior energy efficiency. The Duette Architella line offers a large selection of colors, fabrics and pleat sizes. The Applause honeycomb shade line is streamlined and offers a triple-cell construction. No matter what style you are looking for our professionals can help you sift through the options and choose the right honeycomb shade for your home project.
