A Word from Bill…

Georgia Blinds and Interiors co-owner, Bill Cole, answers some questions from a male point of view on window treatments!

What is your favorite window treatment product right now and why?

My favorite product right now is Hunter Douglas’ Powerrise with the Platinum app for ipad or iphone feature. Right now, Hunter Douglas has the Fashion in Motion Sale going on until September 3, 2013. You can receive a $100 rebate on select qualifying purchases of Hunter Douglas Motorized Window Fashions.  Guys love remotes and this is the latest and greatest! Watch this short video to see how easily you can program your window fashions to operate automatically…providing the right amount of light and privacy to suit the various things you do in life, like watch movies, take afternoon naps, breakfast with the family, whatever.

Why is it so important to make window treatments an investment for your home?

Investing in window treatments has become more important than ever. This is because the trend has become owning your home for a longer span of time, rather than before when flipping was the norm for a quick return on your money. Windows are going to accent the home no matter what you do with them, so choose something that makes your home feel the way you want it to!

What do men usually focus on when purchasing a window treatment for their “man cave”?

I would want the main focus of my man cave to be function, however style would still be a consideration  in my selection. Personally, I would want the room to be dark when viewing a game of football or my favorite James Bond movie on the big screen! My window treatment choice would be the Hunter Douglas Duette Archiettela with Powrrise in a room darkening fabric with the platinum app.

What is a trend you are seeing in the window treatments?

I see the trends going away from the traditional blinds and shutters and going more toward some of the fabric shades. Cellular or honeycombs shades are becoming more popular as well because of their energy efficiency. Roller type shades are also doing very well for a classic yet functional way to cover a window.
