Years ago, there wasn’t much selection in window treatments or their operating systems. Many people simply hung drapes or curtains and left it at that. Today, however, window treatments control light and add interest at a window, by adding color and texture. With the various options available, the possibilities are nearly endless. At Windows to the World in Northeastern Pennsylvania, our trained professionals will be happy to help you navigate the choices to get the right window treatments for your home.
Shades and Blinds Can Control Light and Privacy
With more and more “open concept” floor plans in today’s homes, controlling light in the space is different than for more closed homes. Fabric selection plays a big part in controlling light, and so does how the blind or shade operates. For example, the traditional bottom-up only style is for window treatments that are either raised up or closed most of the time. For bathrooms or first-floor rooms that face heavy traffic, the top-down only option is a great solution. Privacy and light control are both readily available. To meet all of your privacy needs while still getting natural light, the top-down/bottom-up option will give you the best of all worlds. Hunter Douglas offers a feature called Duolite. This feature provides maximum light control and is two shades in one—when the top shade, which is made out of a sheer fabric, is down, light is filtered. When the bottom shade, which is made of a semi-opaque or blackout fabric, is raised, you have room darkening. Finally, you could choose motorization. PowerView™ from Hunter Douglas gives you the ability to set the right mood, morning, noon, and night. All you have to do is program PowerView app on your smartphone or tablet to move your blinds or shades to the exact position you want – even when you are away.
