More than these things, though, an automated window system has another feature that people look for in every home: safety. Installing a smart home solution for window blinds in Philadelphia reduces the dangers posed by cord and wire-operated window treatments, specifically to children and small pets. The system can even be customized or programmed to activate on pre-determined times, attuned to an individual’s sleeping habits.

With the elegant and functional window fashions we offer, an already elegant space can be rendered even more luxurious. Over the years we’ve had the distinct honor of installing custom window treatments in Philadelphia’s most prestigious buildings, be they modern or historical in style. Take for instance the Packard Grande Condominium on 111 S. 15th Street. Dubbed a “smart building,” this high-rise features many hi-tech amenities that make it a favorite among technophile condo hunters. To live up to its moniker, we installed elegant and easy-to-operate window treatments that made residents even happier to call this place home.

We’re in the middle of summer, meaning the sun is out much longer and more often than normal. While the sun is a welcome sight after last year’s Polar Vortex, the constant sunlight can make rooms and offices a little too warm. In some cases, the extra sunshine forces air conditioners to work harder than usual, resulting in higher energy bills. Luckily, you can easily regulate the ambient temperature and add a touch of class to any room by installing window treatments in your Philadelphia home. Considering that you’ll be receiving a rebate on top of other benefits, now is definitely the time to get such window dressings.

Making Old New Even with proper care, the upholstery in old furniture is only expected to last around a decade (15 years is a stretch, according to upholsterers). Constant exposure to various elements and wear-and-tear can do a number on your vintage couch or chair. When a furniture's former beauty has all but vanished, it needs nothing less than fresh Philadelphia upholstery. Whether you want a new look for old furniture, or restore its original one, upholstery services such as Allure Window Treatments can get the job done. Reupholstering is more affordable than buying brand pieces, especially if the old furniture carries some sentimental value. The landfills are full enough without the addition of furniture with historical or emotional value.
