Not all blinds and shades are the same. In fact, there are major differences between blinds and shades that affect how they look and function as window treatments. When you are ready to purchase new blinds or shades, you can save time if you know how you are going to operate your window treatments. Not all blinds or shades operate the same. So ask yourself, “Am I a tilter or a lifter?” Our sales consultants at Windows to the World, serving the Wilkes Barre and Mountain Top areas, can show you window treatments options that will match your preferred style.
Are You a Window Treatment Tilter?
If you are primarily a “tilter,” you are someone who wants to leave your window treatments in place and just rotate them open and closed. Window treatments you want to consider are:
- Silhouette or Nantucket Window Shadings
- Pirouette Window Shadings
- Luminette Privacy Sheers
- Wood Blinds
- Vertical Blinds
- Aluminum Blinds
Are You a Window Treatment Lifter?
If you are primarily a “lifter,” you are someone who wants to see through an unobstructed window, so the blind or shade needs to be one that can be easily lifted open, closed or out of the way. Window treatments you want to consider are:
- Duette or Applause Honeycomb Shades
- Design Studio Roman Shades
- Designer Screen Shades
- Designer Roller Shades
- Pleated Shades
- Provenance Woven Wood Shades
- Vignette Modern Roman Shades
Are You a Window Treatment Techie?
Once you know if you are a “tilter” or “lifter,” it’s time to consider technology options for your blinds and shades. Almost any blind can be motorized giving you the ability to lift, raise, lower, adjust slats, vanes and louvers anywhere in the room. Motorization options you might want to consider are:
- PowerRise® – raise or lower individual or groups of window treatments
- PowerGlide® battery powered – tilts slats open or closed
- PowerTilt™ battery-powered tilts slats open or closed
- Platinum™ technology – hard-wired with wall switch or remote through any home automation system.
- Platinum™ App – control your Hunter Douglas window treatments via your Apple or Android device
