You probably know the importance of getting a good night's sleep. Not only does it help to improve focus and concentration, but it is also essential for physical health.

Cable guided shades are a great way to achieve precise shading control in angled applications. By keeping roller shades at the exact angle of the window, you can ensure that your shade will not move around in areas of high velocity airflow. This system is also useful in areas where you want to keep the shade from moving unintentionally and provide the same coverage as on a straight wall.

Tensioned shades are an ideal solution for skylights and angled windows. The innovative design from Lutron keeps fabric panels taut and parallel to windows with minimal sag at a variety of slopes. This reduces light gaps around the fabric and maximizes the view when opened by eliminating cable guides that are typical in skylight shades.

Christopher William has expert installers to provide white-glove service and centralized control.
