We’ve all had the circumstances where we have to lift a really heavy shade. It’s a challenge! I’ve seen all the tricks people use, from helping the shade up by grabbing the bottom rail to grabbing the cord with two hands and bracing your foot against the wall to gain the most leverage. Whichever method you use, you might try using technology to your benefit. There are many ways to lift window coverings these days, but this video shows a very simple one that you might consider using if you have a large roller shade.

If you are young and healthy, these lift systems are more of a luxury, but I deal with a lot of elderly clients or those with disabilities, and, for them, these options are a necessity.

Please make sure that your consultation with your window coverings expert includes a conversation about all the lift choices for the product you order.
