louvers can now be operated remotely
eliminating the need to touch them.
For children and pet safety, many
blinds and shades can be operated
without a cord. In addition to motorization, manufacturers offer other cordless options.
Another variation on the traditional
operation system of blinds/shades is
" Top Down / Bottom Up. " This allows
you to lower the shade from the top so
you have privacy on the bottom half of
the window while enjoying the beautiful day outside. If you enjoy sleeping in
or blocking out streetlights/full moon,
room darkening shades are a great alternative. You can also add room darkening lining to draperies to reduce the
amount of sunlight coming in.
There are many types of fabrics available today for all the different applications of window treatments, bedding,
pillows, furniture, cushions and shower curtains. Choices in fabrics range
from sheer to heavy upholstery. Using
Sunbrella/outdoor fabrics inside is a
great way to reduce fading in areas
with lots of sun as some fabrics such
as silk and linen fade quickly. While
most people think of flame retardant
or Crypton fabrics for commercial application, they can be used in high use
residential situations allowing for easy
clean up from spills and dirt.
Can you mix patterns? Yes, it is
wonderful to mix patterns along with
colors and textures. It adds interest
to your room. Some people love large
and bold patterns while others prefer
an understated smaller scaled pattern. Be mindful of the space's other
elements such as architecture details,
lighting, openings into other rooms,
etc. You want to enhance the space
with your choices. That is why working with an interior design and/or a
window treatment specialist will save
you time and frustration along with
avoiding costly mistakes of the wrong
size and poor choice.
So, have fun and dress up your naked
windows!
