Have any hard to reach windows? Are they in your bedroom? Cathedral ceilings can add a lot of character to a room, but the high placement of windows in these spaces can make light control pretty challenging.
One of my recent clients experienced this problem. Her two-story bedroom featured high ceilings and large, gorgeous windows. The room also had two sets of brand new French doors.
My client loved how the room filled with light during the day, but after sleeping in her newly designed bedroom for a few nights, she realized that moonlight came directly through her second story windows, landing directly on her face.
The moonlight from her 2nd story windows was bright enough to keep her up at night, and this combined with the morning light that flooded into her room at the crack of dawn equaled a bad night’s rest for my poor client!
Window shades could easily block out the moonlight, but my client also wanted to be able to open and close the shades on her second story windows throughout the day so she could control the light in the room.
Obviously, it wouldn’t be practical for her husband to climb up to her second story windows every morning and night to open and close her shades, so we decided to get a bit high-tech and use MOTORIZED SHADES.
Just by clicking a button on a remote, my client could close her shades before she went to bed at night, and open them in the morning when she and her husband woke up to let in the morning light.
It’s a genius solution to a common window problem, and it can be used with most window treatment designs.
