The Screened Porches of 2020
So many Georgian’s are stuck in their home dreaming of the vacation they would have had. Due to the Covid-19 situation, the summer of 2020 points to evolving homeowner expectations, it may be the frequency with which locals are integrating screen porches, patios, and outdoor kitchens into original landscaping that artfully marries the house to its setting.
Gone are the days of the minimal outdoor footprint; today’s homeowners want to express themselves—which is why the traditional house is becoming more personalized. Atlanta homeowners want outdoor rooms and spaces that are wired for entertainment, useable for seven or eight months of the year, and so easy to maintain that the usual repair and replacement tasks are mostly eliminated.
Screen porch construction has become much more advanced with a vast range of products and technology available. Most of these technologies are designed to fit right into an existing home automation system. And with the popularity of Alexa and Google Home, voice control is expected.
To satisfy this more demanding criteria, Peachtree Blinds constantly stays on top of a new generation of weather-resistant materials, absorbing and applying fine building techniques that will shape non-traditional materials into designs perfectly suited to the home’s style and setting. As the standard has risen, so, too, the need to stay ahead of the curve.
The Motorized Porch Shades of 2020
One of our inovating products that has become extremely popular are our motorized screens from Universal. Motorized retractable screens are not necessarily new but the technology surrounding them is constantly evolving. From rain and wind sensors that lower or raise the screens when the weather is not cooperating to home automation integration and iphone or android device control. We also install many Alexa and Google Home controlled screens.
Vinyl Motorized Shades
Vinyl outdoor shades are available in clear vinyl for windows or see through applications as well as colored or printed designs. These shades utilize the same technologies, tracks and motors as the motorized screens above, all while allowing for a true 4 season room. Needles to say these vinyl screens have become very popular with Atlanta area restaurants and other outdoor commercial venues but they also work great for residential applications.
