Pre-Wire Before the Drywall Goes Up

When building a new home there are so many things to consider like paint color, appliances, flooring, and more. At Fresh Twist, our designers do not want you to forget the window treatments. Usually, the last design element to go into your new home, so we want you to be fully prepared before moving in to make sure you have privacy.

Smart Home Integration – Motorized Blinds and Shades

Smart home integration has become a standard in our daily lives. Whether you are starting from scratch or planning a major renovation, technology is changing the way we live. Bringing us in as soon as the framework is in place will ensure your electrician adds the additional wiring needed to operate your shades. That will eliminate the need for batteries.

Additionally, pre-wiring for low voltage in the planning stage of your project is a must because many builders are using spray foam insulation instead of the old fiberglass batting.  Trying to fish wire through foam is almost impossible. Your electrician will basically run a home wire from each window to a central location.  And if you are planning to install skylights, do not forget to pre-wire them too. Motorized shades can be a lifesaver when the glare on the TV is interfering with your football game.

Hunter Douglas Smart Shade System

Hunter Douglas PowerView® Automation allows you to control light exactly where you want it. Shades will operate independently at the time you schedule them allowing your home to run more efficiently.

Integrating PowerView Motorization with compatible smart-home systems simple and easy. The Hunter Douglas Smart Shade System is compatible with Apple HomeKit, Alexa, Control 4, Google Home, Elan, Lutron & more. Use Siri® on your iPhone®, iPad® or HomePod™ to operate individual shades or Scenes hands-free. Voice-activate your Scenes using Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant.

Selection of your Window Treatments

Just like designing a kitchen, our consultants will work with you to determine your décor and lifestyle requirements for each room. For example, in the bedroom you may want total darkness at night, but light filtering during the day. The collection of blinds and shades we offer by Hunter Douglas is endless and all can be motorized.

When you design a home, the products and features you select will be with you for years to come. We want to ensure you are happy with your selections and comfortable with what you are spending. With a one-on-one appointment with our design experts, they will show you a range of styles, colors, fabrics, and more that are sure to inspire you.
