As people get older, arthritis, joint pain and other age-related issues can be taxing when it comes to operating window treatments. Luckily, there are many products on the market to help seniors make opening and closing window shades and blinds easier so that no one has to feel pain from an everyday activity.

Lightweight window treatments such as cellular shades, soft sheer shades, roller or solar shades will provide a functional and easy-to-use option for seniors. Their versatility for interior design and light-filtering abilities will allow warm light to filter in and provide privacy control.

Another option for seniors is cordless blinds or with motorized shades. Cordless blinds such as honeycomb cellular shades, roman shades, pleated shades and aluminum mini blinds will help control glare and can be closed with a slight tug. Motorized blinds and shades could be the perfect option for seniors and are available in a number of styles and can be opened and closed with a click of a remote.

Honeycomb cellular shades are perfect for seniors due to their light weight, versatility of color choices and insulating qualities. They will control air leakage and will decrease the size of your utility bills.
