When you purchase new window treatments, you make a lot of choices, from color to material to style. You also need to make choices about some of the details involved with the product’s functionality. At F&R Interiors here in Brentwood, our trained consultants will help you understand all of the features and benefits of your purchase and will help you navigate the options that will make your window fashion the most productive for you. Read on to learn more!
Different Ways Shades Can Open
If you choose Hunter Douglas honeycomb shades, Roman shades, Silhouette® privacy sheers, and more, you have options for how you can control natural light and privacy. You can choose traditional lifting—from the bottom up—which lets natural light in from the bottom. Top-down operation lets light in from the top of the window while keeping the lower portion private. Finally, there’s top-down/bottom-up operating, which allows you to lower the top and raise the bottom at the same time or independently.
Which Window Treatment to Choose
To determine which is best for your situation, consider the location of the window. Top-down is great for a bedroom window that is on the street side; people can’t look directly in, but you can still have natural light in the room. If you have pets, bottom-up is a good choice. Top-down/bottom-up is the ultimate in versatility to give you the best of all worlds—it’s perfect for any room in your home.
Window Treatment Lift Systems
One of the most overlooked options when selecting window treatments is the operating systems. If your windows are high and hard to reach, consider PowerView® Motorization. If you have children or just don’t like the look of cords, consider LiteRise®. We have a wide variety of operating choices for you to select from.
