First, I have a set of curtains existing on each (patio door and window)...and I have a wife.
She's let me take over the lower level but I may be more aesthetically anal than she is, actually.
The existing curtains look great, but just don't block out enough light (not bad, but could be improved) for serious watching...even though it's the north side of the house.
So, think "motorized screen" when I say: are there any motorized curtains that work VERTICALLY, instead of pulling left and right, horizontally?
The idea would be to simply hit a button and have one/two nice-looking (preferably black) curtains drop straight down from the ceiling from an otherwise unobtrusive box) and sit in front of the windows. Done
The curtain would be hidden (again, in the case mounted on the ceiling) until needed (unlike L and R curtains that simply "hang out" until drawn shut) and then drop straight to the floor. Would shut out WAY more light, simply by the nature of it being a solid mass rather than 2 sections meeting in the middle, and would disappear when done. Perfect.
It would seem to me this could very popular for some in a mixed room like mine! No?
Thanks for any help, I don't want to overspend on motorized screens, but I haven't seen anything like this.
Perhaps I could but the motorized screen and replace the screen with fabric, but I'm fearing the fabric I would need would be too thick/heavy for the unit.
Thanks for any help!
