Our house isn’t a fish bowl anymore! Nancy tracked down a great modern shade store online and we installed them over the past weekend. It’s so nice to have some privacy and also cut out the sun glare early in the morning and late in the afternoon.
Most of our openings had plenty of space at the heads, however, the big sliding doors were tight with about 1-1/2” in depth. We had thought about trying to recess the shades into a slot over the doors at one point, but it just wasn’t feasible price-wise. In the end, they are still fairly non-obtrusive.
