Control the Sun and Enjoy the View at Your Midtown High-Rise Unit
If you have moved to Midtown Atlanta in the past few years, you have seen tremendous growth and improvement in this urban enclave. The Olympic Games in 1996 helped accelerate that growth, and the area boasts amenities like the Woodruff Arts Center, Atlantic Station, great restaurants and so much more.
You enjoy living in your modern urban high-rise, but come summer the hot southern sun streaming in your floor-to-ceiling view windows makes your air conditioning work overtime. It's easy enough to draw the curtains or shades, but you don't want to block the view. And continually opening and closing drapes and shades gets tiring. What's the solution? Motorized shades.
You might think that motorized shades might be limiting in style, too modern, or challenging to install in your space. We'd like to politely dispel all those notions here and show you how motorized shades will enhance your urban Atlanta living spaces.
