Lutron Cordless Cellular Shades


Imagine it's a beautiful sunny afternoon. Rays of light are beaming into your home and a bit into your eyes. You approach a window to lower the blinds just a little, to remove the glare. However, your seemingly easy plan is foiled by an uncooperative cord. You struggle and tug  the string left and right, but the shades won't drop. When they do, one side falls while the other remains to mock your efforts. It's the age old tale of the battle of the blinds. Good news is you no longer have to be taunted by an inadament object.

Lutron's Cellular Shades are your solutions. Say goodbye to sloppy, cord controlled shades and blinds, and hello to sleek, remote controlled replacements. These shades are great for entertainment rooms, nurseries, and for hard to reach windows. With the touch of a button, you can draw the blinds all at once from your phone or a remote. It's never been easier to get the lighting control you need instantly.

Cellular shades come with 3 year batteries for your convenience. The shades themselves are available in a variety of colors and textures to complete any room's look. Additionally, there are three options for opacities: translucent, filtered, and room darkening. The more opaque, the more insulation the shades provide.

Home Entertainment Rooms: Your Play Station


Do you enjoy PS3 and/or Xbox games? Want to know how to make an ordinary space into a gamer's getaway? All it takes are a few flat screens and iSS's eye for design to transform your room into a play station.

First, we recommend utilizing more than one TV. This way more than one person can play either the same system or two different systems at a time. In the frame of "Go big or go home," we also suggest having a TV or two for sporting events and your favorite show. Sit back and think on that for a moment. Ah, paradise is coming into fruition.

Second, iSS suggests installing a sweet lighting system. Atmospheric lighting not only looks awesome, it is useful too. From your smart phone or remote, dim lights, change lighting color scenes, or select pre-set options for cinema or parties. The optimal lighting will intensify your gaming and viewing experiences.

Next, we implore you to consider a top-notch sound system if you want your gaming experience to come to life. Surround sound will envelope you in the action and hone your focus. When you aren't gaming, the system will come in handy with movies and parties.

Some detectors using ionization technology are built for quick burning fires, but the technology is less effective in smoldering blazes. This can leave you and your loved ones susceptible to deadly smoke inhalation. Learn more with this very important report.
