The Role of Window Treatments in the Home

These days, window treatments do more than just cover a window. They add visual interest through unique colors, textures, and styles. But more than that, they control light and privacy, changing your house to a home. At Window Products in Connecticut, our trained consultants will be happy to help you navigate the choices so you can select the right treatments for your home and your needs.

Light Control Needs

With more and more homes having “open concept” plans, light needs to be controlled differently throughout the space. Fabric plays a big part of that. And so does how the window treatment operates. Here are some of the options:

  • Traditional Bottom-Up Only—this classic style is how many treatments operate; they’re either raised up from the bottom or are closed.
  • Top-Down Only—this style is a great choice for bathrooms or first-floor units that face heavy outdoor foot traffic. Privacy and light are easily controlled.
  • Top-Down/Bottom-Up—this style meets all privacy needs while giving the room access to natural light. It offers the best of both worlds—open from the bottom up, from the top down, or both.
  • Duolite™—this style offers fantastic light control. Essentially two shades in one, this blind has a top shade made of sheer fabric and a bottom shade made of semi-opaque or blackout fabric. When the top shade is down, light is filtered. When the bottom shade is raised, the room is darkened.

Motorization for Blinds and Shades

Motorization offers many benefits. For example, PowerView™ from Hunter Douglas offers the ability to set the right mood, no matter the time of day—morning noon, or night. Using the PowerView app on a smartphone or tablet, the homeowner need only program the blinds or shades to move to the exact position they want—even when they might be away from home.
