You Control It!

The window treatment industry strives to stay on the cutting edge by constantly refreshing selections and offering customers with the latest and greatest of blinds or shades. One of the newest and coolest product lines is the Motorization! In addition to being extremely versatile and easy to operate, these selections also feature a beautiful and traditional design, making them ideal for just about any room in your home.

Easy Operation

Although we test the control options for all our shades, including standard nylon cords, chains, continuous cord loops, and cordless options, to be as easy and intuitive as possible, we know that some homeowners prefer an even simpler method of raising and lowering their window treatments. Motorized shades are the easiest to control of all, as the simple touch of a button on their remote raises or lowers them effortlessly to the desired height.

Perfect for hard to reach windows

Got windows that are hard to reach, but still want to cover them with shades? If so, motorized shades are the ideal solution. No more stretching or even climbing on furniture or ladders to adjust your window treatments. With motorized shades, you can set them to the perfect length without putting your furniture or yourself at risk by climbing to reach cords, chains, or bottom rails.

Control up to 15 shades with a single remote

With our motorized shades, you won’t have to worry about jugging multiple remotes and forgetting which one controls certain shades in your home. All our motorized shades ship with a remote that can be configured to control up to 15 shades. That means you can quickly and easily control the shades in a large room or throughout your entire home with a single remote control.

No need for electrical outlets

We know that many homeowners are concerned about the appearance of unsightly cords and cables snaking along their walls to power their motorized shades. However, our window treatments are operated with a lithium battery power pack, eliminating the need for messy cables, extension cords, or outlets directly underneath your windows. The included batteries are designed to be long-lasting, which means you won’t have to worry about replacing them until after many hours of usage.

Available in a wide variety of styles

We know that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to window treatments—including specialty items like our motorized shades. That’s why we offer light filtering cellular shades, exotic solar shades, shades with five percent openness, and shades that block 99 percent of the sun’s light and harmful UV rays.

Huge variety of colors

Getting the right color for your window treatments is an important part of the decorating process. You need a color, texture, or pattern that complements your home’s style. And with our line of motorized shades, you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect look to match your furniture, wall colors, and décor.

Easy Remodeling Ideas – On A Budget!

When you move into a new home – house or apartment, it is easy to come up with pages of things you would like to change, update, and improve. Unfortunately, moving expenses piled on top of down payments make taking on most projects nearly impossible. Rather than accumulating a ton of debt – we have compiled a list of inexpensive updates you can do that will make a huge impact on your space, and not your wallet!

  • Update out dated brass fixtures. Gold and brass fixtures can age any room 20 years. Turns out you can purchase Rustoleum – paint/primer in one – in a bunch of updated colors – brushed nickel, chrome, rust, or steel. A quick and easy update to anything metal – sink fixtures, cabinet handles, light fixtures, even light switch covers!
  • Update old fashion bathrooms. Believe it or not there is hope for the pastel bathrooms that were popular around the 60’s and 70’s – epoxy paint! You can cover up any sink, toilet, even tub with the paint, and give a fresh coat of white finish to an otherwise outdated space. While this is available to do yourself, keep in mind that even hiring a professional to do the work is a significant cost savings to a bathroom remodel.
  • Update brick features. Most of the time anything brick is extremely hard to replace – fireplaces, accent walls, wood stove bases – but luckily a new whitewash finish can instantly update the look. It is extremely easy to do as well, white paint, water, a few brushes, and some cloths! And since you are doing it yourself you can decide how dark or light you go!
  • Add crown molding. There are a lot of areas in the house where some simple crown molding can really make a statement if the original design was plain and simple. For example, add a frame around a plain bathroom mirror to dress it up. Update contractor grade cabinets with a piece of molding along the top – or even bottom of the cabinets. Even a strip around a plain window or door opening can make a big difference.
  • Update a ceiling fan. The traditional fan that is a faux wood finish usually looks dated. Cover it with a coat of white or even black paint for a quick update. If you are feeling a little more ambitious change out the light covers for a totally new look.
  • Add drama to your windows. Make windows that are proportionally small for a room appear bigger by hanging curtains wider and higher than the window – it gives an illusion that the ceiling is higher and the windows bigger.

Again – keep in mind even these projects can not all be done in one weekend – but they probably can get checked off a lot faster than a kitchen or bathroom reno!
