Unique Father’s Day Gift Idea

Theater-TV-TIFFLooking for a unique Father’s Day gift? Take Dad’s home theater to the next level!

Home theaters are one of the latest design rages. From technology to decor, searching for the perfect home theater accessories can be daunting, and the smallest of details matter in making the most of the home theater experience. Presentation is key to making the possibilities endless in the elements you can bring to yours.


One thing to consider is how lighting affects your multimedia experience. Theater rooms with windows may cause glare issues, or seem impossible to completely seal off any natural light from invading the space. Light always seem to seep through the cracks.


For home theaters, room darkening is serious business. Considering that QMotion shades already offer the smallest light gap in the industry at only 1/2”, its redesigned, tilt-out, side channels cover this gap. With QMotion Qadvanced Roller Shades, you can incorporate sleek and stylish design with silent operation thanks to our patented motors located inside the shade tube. In addition, QMotion offers hundreds of fabric selections to enhance room darkening and also provide excellent contrast for a clear and sharp view.


Not only will QMotion Shades help with light control, but they can also help to increase the sound quality in the room.  Exposed glass such as windows or mirrors can create an echo effect. Shades and side channels cover the glass, helping to improve sound quality while also controlling natural light.


And for those dads that are really tech savvy, QMotion roller shades integrate with most home automation systems. Dad will be able to control not only his TV and sound system, but also have the motorized roller shades at his fingertips while enjoying some relaxing time in his chair.


So, instead of the Father’s Day tie for this year, give him a surprise the whole family can enjoy. Upgrade his theater room (and don’t forget the shades!).

European Window Fashions for 2012: What’s hot in Germany

Qmotion shades recently hosted an international guest from Stuttgart, Germany, to check out our new motorized roller shade technology. He enjoyed his trip here and was able to educate us on what window fashions are popular in Europe this year. He shared with me the following pictures recently and I thought they were very interesting. The things to look for on the horizon are primary colors, floral prints, and the use of blackout fabrics. In Europe, this year “panel track” systems are also trendy, they combine bold colors and floral prints to make a major statement in a room. Unlike American window fashions that are meant to complement the style of a room; German window fashions are meant to be the focal point and accentuate the simple modern styling.
