Hard To Reach Windows

What is the definition of hard to reach windows? Basically, it means that if you can’t easily approach the window to operate it, it is hard to reach. This can come up in various situations such as:

  • Kitchen sink
  • Bathtub
  • Window behind furniture
  • Highly elevated window
  • Window in a stairwell

If you are reading this blog, you may have a window like we just mentioned. How do you treat a window like this? Here are your options.

Choices for Hard to Reach Windows

  1. No window covering
  2. Cordless controls with extension pole
  3. Manual controls with extra long control lengths
  4. Motorization
  5. Standard length controls which requires climbing up to the controls to operate the shade.

Remote Control for Motorized Shades

Which one is best for your hard to reach windows? In the current climate of automation, going with motorized window coverings is the obvious choice. But when we meet with our clientele, we determine the actual use of the shades that best meets their needs. For example, if the client has no view out the window and it is only being installed for privacy, we might not focus on controls at all. They will never open and close it, except for window cleaning. Therefore, why pay more for motorization?

This blog helps you to see that there are great ways to cover hard to reach windows, but there is no one solution to all concerns. This is why we focus so heavily on our consultations.
