Do you have a sliding patio door or a room with a large expanse of glass that cries out for a vertical window treatment? Are you looking for a sleek, classic to contemporary look featuring fabric instead of hard plastic slats? Then, consider a flat panel vertical blind made by Hunter Douglas or Comfortex.
These flat panel window treatments come in a wide array of fabrics from sheers to solar screens and are available in over 100 fabrics in multiple color choices. They operate on a ceiling-mount track system that can be installed inside or outside the window frame. You may choose either a wand or cord to open and close the panels or select a motorized operating system. All flat panels may be ordered with a left, right or center draw stacking option. Unlike many products, they are made to span long distances and can cover areas as large as 192 inches. Again, unlike many products, they produce a petite stack when open.
You have five choices in how you finish the flat panel at the top of your blind. They include a simple, metal head rail; metal or fabric valances; and a fabric-wrapped cassette or box valance that conceals the blind’s mechanics. The panels maintain their flat appearance through the use of bottom weights.
Do you need to partition your finished basement to include multiple, family functions? Would you like a way to provide more separation in a bedroom shared by siblings? Or, is there a need for more privacy than what you have in your new loft apartment?
Don’t even consider an expensive remodeling project. Flat panels can also be used as inexpensive, attractive room dividers, thereby, making your existing space more functional. They truly are the sleek, vertical solution.
