Goodbye Glare

Motorized Shades Almost as Magnificent as the View

Imagine having a beautiful lake with majestic mountains in your backyard. Imagine the sun reflecting off the lake as it slowly sets over the mountains. Now, imagine having this view, but not being able to enjoy it.

That was exactly the situation for a homeowner in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. His beautiful view of Lake Coeur d'Alene was spoiled by blinding sunlight and glare coming off the lake from roughly 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. every day. The direct sunlight even caused the room to get so warm that it was uncomfortable to sit in for more than a few minutes at a time.

The homeowner wanted motorized screen shades to be installed underneath one valance, and wanted the installation to be done in a manner in which no cords would ever be visible. Add to the equation the fact that the installation would be performed at 16 feet off the ground at times. It was a challenging set of circumstances, and understandably, many dealers that were contacted by the homeowner said, "Thanks, but no thanks."

Exasperated, the homeowner turned to Charlotte Rodgers of Interiors by Charlotte. Charlotte and her local Skandia sales representative carefully constructed the perfect solution for the homeowners' needs. The screen shades that were selected filter light, eliminate glare, and reduce the temperature in the home, while allowing the homeowner to enjoy the incredible view even when his shades are fully closed.
