If you’re considering a window covering in Palo Alto, CA for the windows in your home, you should consider having cordless window coverings installed. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, but they give you easy operation and maintenance. They also make your home safer for children and pets. There are many different options for cordless window coverings.
One option for cordless window coverings is motorized and programmable window coverings. Motorized window coverings are fantastic because you have total control over when your window coverings are raised and lowered, and you can raise or lower them with precision, keeping them as open or closed as you prefer.
Motorized and programmable window coverings are also nice because they can be integrated with smart technology in your home and via smartphones so that you can control them even when you’re not home.
This is a great security feature because you can deter break-ins and burglaries by opening and closing your motorized window coverings throughout the day when you are at work, giving the impression that someone is home even if you and your family are out.
It’s also great when you take vacations because you can combine this with programmable lighting to make it look like your home is occupied even though you and your family are away traveling.
Another nice feature that programmable window coverings have is that you can program them to open at a certain time in the morning and to close at a certain time at night. This means you don’t have to go around and manually open and close all the window coverings in your home every morning and evening.
A second option for cordless window coverings is top down/bottom up operation. This operation lets you operate window coverings like pleated shades, cellular shades, and roman shades from both the top and the bottom.
For example, if you want privacy with natural light still coming in, you can lower the window coverings from the top. If you want light coming in at the bottom of the window, you can raise the window coverings from the bottom. If you want natural light coming in from both the top and bottom of the window, you can lower the top part of the window covering and raise the bottom part of the window covering, so that the window covering is in the middle of the window.
Top down/bottom up operation gives you a lot of flexibility in how you use your window coverings and gives you more control over lighting and privacy.
Another option for cordless window coverings is Hunter Douglas’ Light Rise®. This cordless window covering option makes operation easy. To raise these window coverings, you simply push them from the bottom to the position where you want them to be and they’ll stay secure. When you’re ready to lower them a little or close them completely, you simply pull them down.
A final option for cordless window coverings is spring roller shades. These window coverings are probably the simplest to operate. They are adjusted from the bottom. When you pull the window shade slightly, it will open to the position where you stop pulling. To close the window shade, you pull the bottom all the way down to the bottom of the window.
