If your Lake Tahoe or Reno home needs window coverings, you should consider something that is cordless. Not only is it child safe, it is also more attractive. In the posted video, you can see the entry level cordless system from Hunter Douglas. It is only available on the Applause line and it is called SimpleLift. As with almost all offerings from Hunter Douglas, even the small touches are well thought out. The bottom rail is notched for easy gripping and the rail has a gloss finish, so it is easily cleaned from dirt and smudges that accidentally get on the grip portion of the shade rail.Hunter Douglas is one of many window covering companies. Kempler Design, a Reno based window treatment specialist, carries many of these companies. Your window fashions expert should be able to identify your needs and suggest to you the best solution to them. For many, budget is one of the top concerns, and the SimpleLift system is a NO COST upgrade.
