Clean Your Wood Blinds and Enhance Your Health

Blinds can do a lot for an interior space. They can provide you with privacy when they’re drawn, they can provide your home with natural sunlight when open, and they can even provide you with some pretty impressive energy savings. They can greatly increase the interior appearance of any room too!
 
Wood blinds are an especially good choice if you’re looking for stylish blinds that provide you with the aforementioned benefits, but all blinds also have a downside—they can be bad for your health.

Those touring the Mabel Hartzell Historical Home during the Carnation City Festival will see new draperies in keeping with the style of the Victorian era home. The annual festival-week open house, with the updated look, is just one of the features this year as the home celebrates its 150th anniversary.

Are your windows talking?

What do your windows say about your home? Are your windows covered or uncovered? As a window covering professional, I am always drawn to the window coverings in homes, commercial spaces, and on TV shows!

If I see a unique design or fabric somewhere, then I get a photo. There are dozens of photos on Pinterest and Houzz that reflect the character of the homeowner and the designer.

What smart home technology is a good investment?

With so many upgrades available, what are some of the most helpful places to integrate smart home technology?
 
Motorized window shades are a wonderful investment in your home and provide both practical and safety solutions for every room in the house. Safety-wise, they solve the problem of loose, dangling cords that present choking hazards for children. They also prevent the risk of frisky pets playing with the cords and causing damage either to themselves or to your window treatments.
 

Inside a Kid-Friendly, Fabulous University Park Home

Inside, you step into a traditional layout of two front rooms separated by a foyer. But tradition ends there. A library with four chairs replaces a formal living room, and the entire family plays games there. A guest suite replaces the dining room. Nikki and Matt also did away with a formal front staircase. “It takes up too much room.” The staircase is toward the back of the house, with a tiny office for Nikki tucked underneath. A beechwood screen provides both a sliding door and unique design element.
