One thing that the video does not show, but is critical to the function of the blind or shade, is to make sure that you can reach the tassel. For example, in this particular window, the homeowner is very “vertically challenged”, so we left about 18 inches of cord hanging down, so that she can reach it easily.

For people who don’t want their cords to show at all, do have some options. For blinds, the best is motorization for the tilt and cordless operation for the lift. With shading systems, there are better choices because the product is much lighter.
