Covering Floor to Ceiling Windows: Solving the Love/Hate Relationship

Truly awe-inspiring, large windows can light up a space with style, atmosphere and a majestic view. Until you’re living with them, day-in and day-out. Considering covering floor to ceiling windows in your home? We’re not surprised. But–it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice what you love for what you hate. We are debunking the common misconceptions of covering floor to ceiling windows. Take a look…


That flowing natural light?

It’s harsh–depending on the time of day, from direct rays to obnoxious glare. We don’t experience constant sunshine, so when blue, sunny skies are available, you want to take advantage. But, you don’t have to feel closed off from the world to get relief.

Find the ideal balance with an option that controls the light and glare, but doesn’t make you feel like you live in a cave.

One tap, and your smart shades jump into position.


Let’s not get started on…

Those gorgeous views?

You don’t want to lose “sight” (See what we did there?) of what’s important to you. That view is probably one of the reasons you bought your place! But, a view out is also a view in. I don’t know about you, but as much as I love my neighbors, there’s just times I want to keep to myself.
