Your One-Stop-Shop for Window Coverings and Specialty Shapes| A+ Blinds
Unique window shapes do add accent to your home. But then realization sets in. There’s a need to install shutters and blinds not just to control the amount of light that comes in, but also to ensure privacy. What to do? The good news is that we are a specialty shop for window coverings and specialty shapes.
How to Know Which Type of Window Coverings and Specialty Shapes Should You Buy
Contemporary homes are not governed by the niceties of traditions. That means, designers and architects bend the rules of what people typically think of window shapes. Of course, this creates additional challenge for companies like us that distribute blinds and shutters, among others. Below are just some of the shapes that we encounter in our multiple projects:
- Trapezoid – which has asymmetrical sides
- Triangle – three equidistant sides
- Octagonal – which has eight points, as opposed to hexagon which features six points
- Arch and half-arch – the most common among the unique window shapes
- Skylights – As the term suggests, these are typically located in the ceiling which goes directly through the roof. The idea is to let the light come in and save on electricity, plus they add another dimension to the home.
These are typically fixed windows and while their shapes may be different from your traditional design, installation is easy if you know what you are doing, which we do.
But, there’s a trickier challenge
Remember what we said about fixed window frames? Designers must really hate us when they conceptualize bay and corner windows that open and shut and sliding windows. They add another challenge to light control, privacy and solar heat transfer.
You know what’s the best thing about being in this business for so long? There’s nothing out there that we haven’t seen yet. As a result, we have in our arsenal the full gamut of products that can address all your window covering and specialty shapes requirements.
How about them smart shutters, huh?
One of the solutions for skylights is the remote shades. During the summer, you really don’t want the sun’s rays to envelop your whole home. It would be incredibly humid. But then again, you are not expected to get the ladder and close the shade manually as needed.
Our solution? Control the amount of light that comes in via remote. That’s just more convenient and makes a lot of sense. These are not applicable on skylights alone. We have the technology and knowhow to install smart shutters and blinds, so to speak.
We also specialize in top-down/bottom-up shutters, cordless or tilt-only sidelights to a combination of materials that will give you privacy and light control at the same time.
In modern homes, designers are only limited by their imagination when it comes to building unique window shapes. Good thing we are here, to lend our expertise in window coverings and specialty shapes.
