Soften the Space

One way to soften the look of those large windows, while also having the ability to block out the light and heat is with draperies. No matter which window coverings you decide upon, softening the look with fabrics is always a good idea. The base window coverings can be chosen for light control, privacy or energy efficiency, while the draperies add tremendous function and tons of style/

Make Adjustments Simple

The largest windows in your home demand large solutions, and that can seem daunting. But, wait! With today’s most popular innovations, adjusting large, hard-to-reach window coverings is as simple as saying, “Alexa, close the shades.” That’s right–one of the most popular operating systems, motorized shades, can–not only–be adjusted with a tap, but also with voice command or pre-set schedules. Take the frustration out of controlling the atmosphere of your home. All that will be left is enjoying that beautiful view and amazing light.
