You should choose Centor blinds if you want an unobtrusive alternative to traditional window furnishings. They are perfect for large openings up to 24', and are robust and easy to use, opening and closing with just a fingertip. Centor’s blind is also extremely versatile. It can be combined in a single unit with an insect screen, and can even double as a projection screen. The blinds can also improve your home’s sustainability by improving your openings’ thermal efficiency.
