It’s never a bad idea to heed some expert advice. When it comes to your window treatments, whether they’re sheer roller shades or some form of motorized blinds, it’s incredibly useful. Check out the tips below for some helpful information.
If it goes over a window, it can probably be motorized
The innovations that exist today make it possible for virtually any type of window treatment, whether blind, shade or drape, to be automated. All it takes is some customization, the inclusion of a motor, and a proper transmitter. Now, there’s a great deal of variety when it comes to motorization methods, and not all types of motors and controls offer the same level of innovation and variety. Also, it’s often better to have new custom made shades installed as part of the process, rather than trying to motorize existing blinds.
Roman Shades work in a unique way
While most simple window shades roll up and down in a straightforward way, Roman shades offer a unique spin on this action. They’re sewn in a way that a set of connected sections that fold when the shade is raised and unfold when it’s lowered. This unique looking action is one of their biggest draws, as even when drawn halfway, Roman shades still add a unique touch of décor to the room’s interior design because of their special build.
Cleaning aluminum blinds the right way
It’s relatively easy to clean aluminum because it’s more durable than other types of materials blinds are usually made of. You can use a dry rag to wipe down your aluminum blinds, and even use soapy warm water to rub off insistent stains. Just be careful not to bend the vanes. After scrubbing off all the dirt, wipe the blinds again and let them finish drying in the sun but opening their vanes to let some warmth in.
