Room Transformation: Striking Design, Gorgeous Light

The Denver area boasts some of the sunniest skies and gorgeous sights in the country. Have you been considering a room transformation? Don’t forget about the light. When that intense sunshine streams through your windows, you’ll want to receive all of the benefits while not struggling with the most common issues. Not only does the light play a large role in setting the right atmosphere and comfort in your home, but it affects the design elements as well. Let’s take a look at a before and after room transformation that achieves the perfect balance of beauty and solutions…


Exquisite Design…What’s the Problem???

This home is picture perfect. Everything is intentionally decorated. The design elements hand-selected, the furniture placed for intimate conversation or relaxing in solitude. The scene just outside the window? Breathtaking. If you don’t live in this home, you’d think…they don’t need a room transformation. What’s the problem???


Light Control

For your home to be comfortable–whether enjoying a quiet afternoon, or an evening of entertaining, the lighting must fit the circumstance. While the bare windows in this home create a tremendous backdrop, the situation is far from perfect. Uncomfortable glare will follow you–no matter which direction you turn. If you’re lacking light control with large windows, you understand. Direct sunshine–without anything to block it–creates heat that keeps you away from that part of the house during certain times of day. And, it most likely has your air conditioner running all day long. Lack of light control demands a room transformation.


Privacy & Security

So many of us are surrounded by the gorgeous landscape of the Denver area. In this home, you might be tempted to think that there’s no concern for privacy. But, it’s human nature to want to ‘retreat’ in our own homes from time to time. It doesn’t mean you don’t enjoy the view, there’s just days and moods that make you want to have control. There’s also the question of security. You should have the option to control the view into your home. With bare windows? You’ll often feel uncomfortable, and that’s no way to live.


Compelling Design

Intentionally designed, beautifully decorated. This home is simply stunning. Why would there be a need for a room transformation? With uncontrolled light, your home is at risk for damage. The flooring, artwork, walls and decor–harmful UV rays will cause fading and discoloration. Not only that, but they wash out your decor with glaring light.


How About a Room Transformation…

This scene is made even more beautiful with the addition of these Duette Duolite shades from Hunter Douglas. To begin with, the fabrics coordinate the look of the space for an impressive backdrop. And, they don’t take away from the view. You can still enjoy the sunny skies, mountain views and your outdoor landscape. Duolite is similar to the top down feature we love with shadings. It puts you in control of where the light enters and how much–easy adjustment, amazing benefits. That means the glare is gone, the natural light remains, and the atmosphere is filled with soft, filtered light. With energy efficient shades, you can maintain comfortable temperatures. Privacy and security is one simple adjustment away. Finally, that beautiful decor that makes your house into your home? It’s protected from harsh UV rays.
