Shades for Vaulted Ceilings
If your space has a tall ceiling, consider using dark colors on the window, which can alter the lighting in the room and create a cozier environment. For added privacy, you can add a liner to the back of the treatment, which will also help with room-darkening (important for media rooms or bedrooms). For great fabric options, be sure to check out the Hunter Douglas Design Studio™.
Respecting Natural Light
Many large spaces have larger windows, which means lots of natural light. If you want to accentuate that light, consider using warm colors for your window treatments. Good options include beiges, browns, grays, and natural wood (like wood shutters or woven wood blinds).
The Importance of Insulation for Window Treatments
All that light and numerous windows can impact the temperature of a room—the light can bring with it warmth, and the windows can leak air out or in. Choosing products like Duette® Cellular Shades can help insulate the window, providing insulation and making sure outside air stays out and inside air stays in. These beauties are designed with cellular construction, which traps the air in its pockets. Plus, with the Vertiglide™ mounting system, the fabric can be flipped for vertical orientation, giving you even more flexibility in covering your windows, even if you have a mix of window types.
Considering Operating Systems and Motorization
Hands down, choosing automation for your lift system will make your life more convenient. Whether you have drapes, blinds, shades, or shutters, PowerView® Automation will give you a hassle-free way to adjust them, even when you’re not at home, if you use the PowerView App on your smartphone. PowerView opens a whole new world of functionality, privacy, and safety for your home.
