Motorized Window Treatments

Blake moved into a new condo with a beautiful view overlooking the Puget Sound. One problem: his 1” metal blinds. He found himself constantly raising and lowering the blinds, trying to strike a balance between letting in  the view and blocking the heat and glare of the Western sunlight. When the strings started breaking, Blake  knew  he  needed a  change. His building manager  recommended Anchor  Blinds,  and once he called, he never needed to talk to any other company.

When Armi Avila-Lee arrived for Blake's in-home consultation, she saw side by-side metal blinds on floor to ceiling  windows, with  a clutter of fraying cords that dangled and no longer worked.To her, the solution was obvious: Silhouette® window shadings so Blake could get the advantage of sun protection and see out at the same time. She suggested the motorized option to eliminate cords and make it easier to control the incoming sunlight while keeping the view fully in view!

Now Blake can control all his window coverings with one remote control, raising and lowering them individually or as a group. And with the ugly tangled cords out of the way, Blake can truly enjoy his Sound view. Anchor Blinds, says Blake, is a responsive company that gets the job done.

What better way to control your window coverings than with a touch of a button! Motorization makes it convenient, more usable especially for hard to reach windows, safer, and visually appealing with the elimination of cords. It’s also a more efficient to way operate several shades at once instead of one-by-one manual operation. Most just need AA batteries, but be sure to check with us prior to replacing  to make sure the right batteries are used. With vanes closed, the Silhouette® provides up to 99% UV protection for those super sunny days  in Seattle.
