Discover the Best Window Covering Features for Your Home

We all love the amazing views and beautiful natural light our windows bring. But, when there’s too much light, no privacy and heat that that radiates throughout our homes, all we want are the best window covering features. We’ve got them! Our team, at Blue Sky Shutters & Shades, is sharing the Top 5 Features everyone in the Reno area is looking for!

Tilt Turn Window Ideas

These European-inspired windows are a hot commodity. They tilt in at an angle, and they open in like a door. All of the position changes are cool, but being able to find window shades to cover them is tricky. Until Hunter Douglas introduced the TrackGlide operating system. These window shades are attached to the window, which means they tilt, open, close and adjust no matter the position of the window. This operating system is a great choice for any windows or doors that don’t have a lot of options for installing shades, since there is no drilling required.

Top Down Bottom Up

Lots of natural light, but tons of privacy–it’s the beauty of top down shades! When window shades lower from the top, the light streams in across the ceiling, and that light illuminates the room. But, there’s no direct rays in your eyes, and the glare is gone. Since the majority of the window is covered, you get privacy, and the temperature of the space can be maintained much easier.
