Window Covering Innovations: The Top 5

As technology progresses, so do features within the home. Window treatments have seen a huge advancement in the last few years. Austin Window Fashions is here to help transform your home and improve your life. We have curated a list of five of the best window covering innovations throughout the last year.


#1 Motorized Shades: Premium Convenience

Automated blinds and shades have made home life so much easier over the last couple of years. No matter what life throws at you, your shades will always be in the right position. And, if they’re not? A simple tap on your iPhone, or a voice command to Alexa makes it easy to switch from daytime, to family movie night, without even batting an eye. See more about motorization here.

#2 Blackout Equals Better Sleep

A dark room sets the tone for a great night of sleep. Hunter Douglas has created a system that will darken any room–preventing streetlights, twilight, or passing headlights from waking you. LightLock is revolutionary! It’s now easier than ever to block out that Texas sun while you’re trying to get some extra shut eye. See more about LightLock.
