Buying window treatments isn’t just about which product to select—there are many details to consider, such as where furniture is in relation to the operating controls, whether the treatment will be mounted inside or outside of the window frame, and how much light might still get through the route holes or the sides of the treatment. With some styles, you also need to decide the orientation of how the product opens. At Perfect Fit Window Fashions here in Estero, our trained specialists will walk you through all of those decisions and details, to help ensure that your purchase is exactly what you need it to be.
The Orientation of How Window Treatments Opens
With Hunter Douglas Honeycomb shades, Roman Shades, Silhouette® Privacy Sheers, and more, you have options when it comes to how the treatment will open—and those options will impact privacy and light control. For example, traditional bottom-up lifting allows the light to come in from bottom while maintaining coverage and privacy on top. Top-down operation allows light to come in on top with coverage and privacy at the bottom. Finally, top-down/bottom-up operating allows you to lower the top and raise the bottom at the same time or independently—it’s the best of both worlds.
Lifting Systems for Your Shades
Another detail to consider is how to operate the shades. Each of the following Hunter Douglas operating systems offers the best in child and pet safety and provides a clean look at the window:
- UltraGlide®—a retractable cord system that lets you raise and lower your shades with no ugly, dangling cords
- LiteRise®—a cordless system that lets you gently raise and lower your shades with your hand
- PowerView® motorization—a wireless operating system that can be used with a PowerView® Pebble® remote or with your smartphone or tablet
