Glass Doors

When we have beautiful weather here in Minnesota, we want access to the outdoors. So many homeowners love to step outside to their patios, get fresh air and bask in the sunlight. (That’s also true for the pets and children!) But, many glass doors function much like large windows. They tend to bring in too much light, unwanted heat and a lack of privacy. Is it possible to get door coverings that provide protection, but also allow for easy access? Yes! With the right window covering features for YOUR home, you’ll achieve the balance you’re searching for. And, with beautiful design elements, they will look amazing, too.

Remote Control Blinds

Controlling motorized shades with a remote is not a new technology, but now that many homeowners have entered the smart home world, it can feel like this is all new. Remote control blinds and shades are highly sought-after, but they’ve been around for decades. What IS new within the last ten years is how many homeowners have embraced the option for automated shades–and they’re not looking back. When you can transform the atmosphere of your home with a simple tap or voice command, it’s a game-changer.

Room Darkening

Always a favorite, room darkening shades, blinds and drapery resonate with everyone. Bedrooms, media rooms, that one room that gets hit hardest with the afternoon sun–blocking the light will always have a place in the top 5 window covering features. They provide such relief: Sleep in when you want, watch a movie on a Sunday afternoon, stop the harsh sun from blasting your home with light and heat. Discover which fabrics will help you create the right environment–from blackout to room darkening–so you can sleep, enjoy or relax to your heat’s content!

Top Down Bottom Up

Do you know about shades that lower from the top? Some homeowners are just beginning to discover this concept. Lower the top down, while the rest of the window remains covered. Light flows in, streaming across the ceiling–which results in brightening the space. Enjoy the privacy you need and the temperature that makes you comfortable, while cutting the glare and preventing too much light from entering. Is this the balance you’re looking for?
