Did you know that you have options when it comes to the operating system you choose with your new Hunter Douglas window treatment? Depending on your needs for each room, you might choose different operating systems, even if you have the same Hunter Douglas product. If you’d like to see how each system works, contact a trained Shutter Guy representative here in Charleston today. We’ll be happy to help you find the right option for your space.
Bottom Up, Top Down, or Both
Hunter Douglas Honeycomb shades, Roman Shades, Silhouette® Privacy Sheers, and more are great candidates for different types of operations. For example, you could go with traditional bottom-up lifting, which allows the light come in from bottom. Or the newer top-down operation, which allows light to come in on top while maintaining privacy on the bottom. Or you could get a hybrid—top-down/bottom-up operating, which allows you to lower the top and raise the bottom at the same time or independently.
Choosing the Right Option
Consider the location of the window you’re treating. Is it a bedroom window on the street side? You might want top-down so people can’t look directly inside, but you still get plenty of natural light. If you have pets, bottom-up is a must-have. And if you go with top-down/bottom-up, you’ll get the ultimate in versatility for the best of all worlds—it’s perfect for any room in your home.
Controlling Your Window Fashions
There are many different ways to control how your treatments raise and lower—it just depends on your lifestyle. Each of the following operating systems offers the best in child and pet safety and provides a clean look at the window:
- PowerView® motorization—for the best in convenience, security, and control.
- LiteRise®—an intuitive, cordless system.
- UltraGlide®—offers no ugly, dangling external cords.
