Homeowners in the Orlando Metro Area Enjoy Indoor & Outdoor Living Spaces With Norman SmartDrape™ Vertical Shades
In Central Florida, indoor-outdoor living is a way of life, with many houses featuring large windows and sliding-glass doors. While these home features allow you to enjoy the area’s abundant sunshine and verdant greenery, they also require some creativity when it comes to finding the right window treatments. Fortunately for homeowners in Kissimmee and throughout the Orlando metro area, US Verticals has the perfect solution for covering sliding doors: Norman SmartDrape™ shades. An alternative to traditional vertical blinds, these elegant smart shades serve as a gauzy barrier against bright light and prying eyes while allowing you to easily access your outdoor living spaces and enjoy Florida’s beautiful climate.
Much like traditional vertical blinds, Norman SmartDrape shades consist of individual vanes that hang from a track running along the top of your window. However, instead of being manufactured from PVC, these vanes are made from interwoven vertical strips of sheer and opaque fabric. By using a twisting rod, you can adjust these shades from translucent to opaque for varying degrees of privacy and light control. This feature allows you to enjoy the functionality of vertical shades and the appearance of elegant drapery. Consequently, smart shades are perfect for those who want window treatments that provide their rooms with elegance and grace.
Additionally, Norman SmartDrape shades come with a wide variety of customization options. You can pick the:
- Fabric – You’ll have your choice of both sheer and opaque fabrics, which are available in several colors and patterns. Additionally, since these vertical shades feature 100% woven construction, they won’t yellow or deteriorate like glued fabric shades.
- Hardware – The hardware of these smart shades comes in four complementary finishes: white, brass, bronze, and black. This ensures that every element of your vertical blinds, from the headrail to the wand, matches.
- Stacking option – When opened, Norman SmartDrape shades stack neatly alongside your sliding glass doors or windows. Depending on the configuration of your patio doors or windows, you can choose vertical shades that open from the middle outwards or stack entirely to one side.
Best of all, these stylish fabric shades are easy to clean. Since they’re machine washable, maintaining your vertical shades is as simple as removing the vanes, adding them to a load of laundry, and then reattaching the clean vanes to the headrail.
In addition to their attractive appearance, Norman SmartDrape shades offer homeowners several unique benefits when it comes to taking advantage of your window treatments. For example, you can:
- Pass through smart shades even though they’re closed by simply parting fabric vanes, allowing you to enjoy an indoor-outdoor lifestyle
- Keep bugs and other flying pests from entering your living areas when your sliding doors are open, since these smart shades serve as an effective barrier between the indoors and your outside living spaces
- Keep even the smallest members of your household safe, since these shades are Best for Kids certified
Furthermore, since these vertical shades come from leading manufacturer Norman, you can rest easy knowing that they will last. Norman is known for its commitment to excellence, which is made manifest in its use of premium fabrics in award-winning product designs.
