Technology Hits the Window Treatment Industry

Years ago, my mom was amazed when we children bought her a new television with a remote control. Being able to change channels and control volume from her recliner was, according to her, as great as “sliced bread.” Not too many years after that, we celebrated her birthday by getting her a gas log system for her fireplace, again with a remote control for operation – again amazement and awe.

The next decision, of course, was the type of window treatment I wanted on the interior that would both accent my new doors but, as well, be functional. After all, French doors have to be opened, so window/door treatments could not reduce the ease of that function. Drapes or curtains that covered them completely was certainly not an option.
