Instructions to Operate Cordless Blinds
When we think of conventional window treatments, Victorian style, heavy drapes and curtains that used in Broadways come to mind. Needless to say, these window treatments required pulling cords and strings to adjust and close them. This entailed a lot of physical effort and also posed a danger to unassuming kids and pets in the house, who run the risk of getting entangled, destroy them or pull them out of shape. To deal with such a scenario, cordless blinds have become a necessity in homes. Besides keeping your kids safe, they offer a neat and tidy appearance, making your window spaces the focal point of your room.
To operate the cordless blinds in your room, here are some tips and suggestions.
1. Pulling down the bottom rail: Just pull at the bottom rail to adjust them or to bring down at a level you desire. This is done to adjust the level of natural light you need in the room.
2. Using a wand: In the absence of cords, many manufacturers provide a wand or a stick to tilt the shades. When the wand isn’t provided, you can simply use your fingers to adjust them at a desirable angle.
3. Using a Remote: One of the best solutions to motorized blinds, remotes allow you to operate your shades with a simple On/off flick of the finger. They are especially effective when you have hard-to-reach windows where adjustment is otherwise not possible without getting a ladder. Case in point: skylight blinds of tall windows.
4. Z-Wave Enabled Smartphones: the Z Wave revolution has affected all major aspects of home decor, from blinds and bulbs to music and television. You don’t even need a remote to function your peripherals. All you need are simple voice instructions that schedule the movement of your blinds. When these are set up using your smartphones, they can be adjusted even when you aren’t home.
