It’s Important to Consider

The entire range of possibilities…

  • The direction the windows face: lighting, UV rays, privacy
  • The function of the room: bedroom vs great room
  • How to operate: manual, motorized, no adjustments

The Grand Foyer

An entryway with tall ceilings is stunning. When those exterior walls have arched or angled windows, it really sets your home apart. But, depending on which direction your home faces, or how much foot traffic can be outside, you’ll want coverage that provides light control and privacy. And, when your uniquely-shaped windows are out of reach, it’s important to think about adjustments. Many homeowners love smart shades for this reason.

How Much Coverage?

Covering uniquely-shaped windows will lead you to the question of full or partial coverage. This can often be a personal choice–every home needs its own custom set of solutions. While it can come down to the amount of light entering and the privacy needed, what can be especially important is the room function.

Some rooms look amazing with the arches on display, with light flowing through the top of the window. Other times, like in a bedroom, or a space that gets flooded with light, full coverage is needed to maintain comfortable temperatures & atmosphere.
