If you're like me, you crave sunlight streaming in from those windows during the daytime. But, at the same time, you prefer the privacy of outside onlookers or peeping toms (or burglars) at night or when you prefer in-home privacy. Hence, venetian, vertical and two-inch window blinds are popular with almost every residence I know of.
Many (if not all) of us use window blinds on windows and vertical blinds
on those sliding or French doors. But, it continues to be a pain to constantly open all these blinds during the day (for all that natural light) and closing them all at night (for all that privacy). Ever wish you could push a remote control button and have all that effort done for you?This hack made my favorites list
instantly, and I will be trying it soon. I'm still working on some kind of gear-driven, battery-operated horizontal blind closer that works on a timer instead of a remote control, but have not started working on it yet. Until then, it's back to opening and closing my 10+ blinds every day and night. Ehh!
