Fort Myers Top 5 Window Covering Features

Florida homes have access to beautiful weather, but we also have some pretty specific challenges! The windows of our homes show off the stunning views, but the sunshine can also be too much. Window treatments can be the key to comfort and the customization you need. Our team of At Home Blinds & Decor would love to show you the Top 5 Window Covering Features that most homeowners in the Fort Myers area are searching for…

Child Safety

The window coverings industry has been through changes recently, due to regulations against dangling cords from blinds. However, Hunter Douglas has been committed to child safety for YEARS, dedicated to designing both cordless and cord-safe operating systems. The safety of children and pets should be a top priority, so we make it our mission to provide clients with the most up-to-date options regularly.

Top Down, Bottom Up

You love natural light, but you also know that too much of a good thing is simply too much. Being able to lower your window shades down from the top invites natural light into your home. It streams across the ceiling, lighting up the whole room! While that’s happening, you’re also protecting the interior of your home by having the majority of the window covered. Privacy + UV Protection + Heat Blocking. It’s almost as if top down shades were MADE for Florida homeowners!

Room Darkening

Morning sunshine comes way too early on the weekends. And, when you’re ready for a movie in the afternoon, there’s nothing quite like having it extra dark. Certain spaces in your home call for room darkening blinds and shades. From specialty fabrics, to operating features that prevent light, you can create the ultimate darkness in your home.

Dual Shades

The best of both worlds–that’s what most people call it. You can have soft, natural light; you can enjoy darkness, or you can adjust the environment for a balanced amount of light. Dual shades is one of our top window covering features because of its power to truly transform a space. From rollers and romans to honeycomb shades and woven woods, we have a good selection of window shades with the option for two shades in one!
