Popular Blind Control Options For Window Treatments
Choosing the right window treatment for your Wilmington, NC home is important. It is also important to consider what type of blind control features will work best with the window treatment you choose. Some of the more popular window treatment blind control options are: motorized, continuous loop, cordless, Top Down Bottom Up (TDBU), and wand/cord systems.
Why You Need Motorized in Your Home
Motorized and remote control systems for window treatments are the cream de la cream of window control options. They have become more affordable and easier to use because of advancements in window treatment technology.
This system is designed to be used with a battery powered wireless remote control or a switch mounted on a wall that controls a motor that is within the window treatment.
Platinum App from Hunter Douglas is designed to work with your mobile device for maximum efficiency. With just a touch your blinds can be raised or lowered individually or as a group, customized with your needs in mind.
The Vertical Blinds Solution
A traditional control for vertical blinds includes a wand/cord system. Vertical blinds are rotated by pulling a beaded chain and opened with a pull of a cord or a heavy-duty fiberglass wand that rotates the louvers open and closed. These also are available with a cordless design for added safety. Hunter Douglas provides Perma-Tilt wand control with tilt and traverse functions that are easy to use.
The Continuous Loop Clutch System
The continuous loop clutch system is a manually operated system that is pulled in a circular motion to raise and lower the shades.
Pulling on the cord or beaded chain at the end of the shade positions the shade exactly where needed.
Hunter Douglas has the Ultra Glide cordless spring activated system to raise and lower blinds and is especially good for large windows. The constant cord length of this system means never any long dangling cords to detract from the overall look of the shade and provides an added safety feature. The Ultra Glide system works well with Hunter Douglas “Alustra” and “Vignette” shades.
Top Down Bottom Up Control System
Top Down Bottom Up blind control system is defined by its name.
Shades with this feature can be opened from the top down or the bottom up or both, providing privacy and light control. This window treatment control option works well with cellular, woven, and roman shades.
One other unique option is Levolor’s Transformations Day/ Night shade. This optional control system is available with their cellular shades and allows you to transition a light filtering shade into a room darkening shade with just the pull of a cord.
