Installing Battery Packs in Shallow Windows

We have talked about battery packs quite a bit over the years, but recently, we got to show how to install them. There is a link to one of those videos near the bottom of this post. One thing that comes up is that not all windows are deep enough to install the battery pack behind the window treatment. Some windows are very shallow, so it takes creativity to figure out where to install it. Take a peek at this video which shows you one option in installing window coverings with a battery pack

Please note the title of this blog is about using creativity when installing window coverings. This particular video was created based on the specific circumstances that I was facing when trying to come up with a solution. In my opinion, if you are trying to determine how your shades, shutters or window treatments are going to be installed, you need to make those determinations BEFORE you place your order. This is why it sometimes needs serious creativity.

Can You Do It Yourself?

This is one of the reasons that many people hire an expert in the field. They can’t see all of the issues that may come up, so they need consultation. This is one of the reasons that people like to work with us. Not only do we see what the circumstances are, but we share that information with the client as we notice it. We do this so that we are walking the path together toward finding the best solutions to their window covering needs.

Paul Kempler Installing Shade

One of the things that makes Kempler Design easy to work with when it comes to these matters in who you are working with. Paul Kempler, (That’s me!) is the owner of the business. He and April Kempler, his wife, are the people that you will be working with. Paul does the design, where he walks you through the process we’ve talked about. But, as you can tell from the videos, he also does the installation. This is important, because as a Master Installer he can identify issues that many “designers” can’t see, because they don’t see the whole process, from beginning to end.

We suggest that you contact us and have a chat to determine if working with us is a good fit. It should feel comfortable for both of us. We want to make you happy and we would hope that you have the same feeling toward those who work for you too.
