Additional Window Treatment Options

Alustra® Woven Textures® with Top-down/Bottom-Up

Although it’s important to get the right style and look for your window treatment, it’s also important that you understand some of the operating options you can get with your new window fashion. All window treatments come with standard lift systems, but you need to understand how your treatment will open once it’s on your window. To see all of your choices in action, speak with a trained Window VanGo specialist serving Baltimore today.

Some Shades Can Open From the Top, the Bottom, or Both

You have options to achieve a mix of privacy and natural light for your window when you buy Hunter Douglas Honeycomb shades, Roman Shades, Silhouette® Privacy Sheers, and more. Your choice of lifting depends on your needs. You can choose:

  • Traditional bottom-up lifting, which allow the light to come in from the bottom with privacy on the top. It’s great if you have pets.
  • Top-down operation allows light to come in from the top of the window while still maintaining privacy at the bottom. This is a great choice for bedrooms or rooms that are on the street side—if you don’t want people looking directly in, but you still want natural light in the room.
  • Top-down/bottom-up operating allows you to lower the top and raise the bottom at the same time or independently. This choice is the best of both worlds and is perfect for any room of the home.

Window Treatment Lift Systems

Hunter Douglas is committed to child and pet safety, and all of the lift systems they offer reduce hazards at the window that come from dangling cords. Options include UltraGlide®—a retractable cord system that lets you raise and lower your shades with no ugly, dangling external cords. Or you could choose LiteRise®— a cordless system that lets you gently raise and lower your shades with your hand. For a great solution for convenience and security as well as to loop in with a whole-home automation system, you could choose PowerView® motorization—a wireless operating system that can be used with a PowerView® Pebble® remote or with your mobile device or tablet.
