The work never ends. We’ve all probably said this at one point, whether we were talking about our actual jobs or anything else. From school and full and part-time jobs to housework and childcare, we are incredibly busy. When we come home from actual work and school, we want as little additional work as possible. There are many ways we try to minimize this. We hire others for housework, take advantage of convenience meals and maybe even utilize a robotic vacuum. All of this lets us maximize our relaxation time at home. When you’re enjoying this time, you don’t want to have to struggle with light control and privacy. With blinds from Hill Country Blinds, you can rest assured that your window treatments will do the work for you.
Blinds are a versatile window treatment that help provide a solid balance of privacy and light control. Thanks to the slats that are connected to form a set, you have different options for letting in light. If you want a completely unobstructed view outdoors and don’t need to maintain additional privacy, you can completely raise the blinds to enjoy the natural light. If you need complete privacy and don’t need access to natural light, you can completely lower the blinds and keep the slats closed. For a balance of both, you can tilt and adjust the slats as needed. You can allow light to gently filter in while adjusting the angle of the slats to prevent anyone from seeing in.
In addition to the benefits of their functionality, blinds also work how you need them to since they’re available with different operating systems. For example, Hunter Douglas Precious Metals® Blinds work with multiple operating systems:
- LiteRise® — This cordless system allows you to control your blinds directly. If you want to raise them, you can push up on them with your hand while you can lower them by pulling down.
- SimpleLift™ — This system makes it easy to control your blinds while offering additional safety for those who have pets or children. The blinds come with a contoured bottom rail for raising and lowering the window treatment.
- UltraGlide® — Depending on which blinds you choose, this system can have a single retractable cord or a wand. Either way, the length of the cord or wand is always consistent, making this option another great one for those with pets or kids. This is because the cord won’t hang down and pose a risk to curious hands or paws.
- Standard Cordlock — An option that many are familiar with is the standard cordlock. With this system, your blinds are controlled with a cord that locks into place so you can keep the blinds where you set them.
These options allow you to customize your blind to the needs of your lifestyle. However, for the ultimate level of convenience, you can opt for PowerView® Motorization. This is a wireless, cordless system that lets you control your window treatments from a remote or from the PowerView app, which can be installed on updated Apple and Android devices. You can control one individual set of blinds or a whole group with the touch of a button. You can even set where you like your blinds to be at certain times of the day and schedule them to operate automatically.
