No Strings Attached With Cellular Shades

hunter douglas literise duette-resized-600One of the nicest innovations in the window treatment business over the last few years has been the introduction of the cordless cellular shade. These cordless blinds eliminate the safety problems with children and pets from accidental strangulation and entanglement. They are also very convenient to use as they rise up and down with an effortless push and pull. Without the unsightly cords hanging down you are left with a window that has a clean an unobstructed view.

One of my favorite blinds is the cellular shade with the top down, bottom up option. This lets you easily position the blind in your window for maximum view, while maintaining the privacy you need. These are especially nice in bedroom windows where you can drop them down partially from the top to let in the natural light, while still maintaining the privacy you need. Combined with the energy savings and the insulating properties of the cellular shades, this is the perfect shade for many areas of your home.

When they first appeared in the market, I was a little leery about how well the mechanism would hold up on the cordless shades, but after years of installing them in customer’s homes, I see far fewer repairs needed on these blinds then I do on the standard corded shades. The lifting mechanism has been very reliable and it eliminates wear and tear of the cord going through a cord lock that always seems to be the weak point of corded shades.  So if you are looking for beauty and function check out cordless cellular blinds soon.
