Motorized shades are fast becoming one of the most popular choices for window treatments, and it’s no wonder. They’re easy to operate, convenient, and every bit as stylish as traditional shades and blinds. Considering installing motorized shades in your home? Read on to learn more about the biggest benefits of doing so.
- Convenience.Motorized shades are incredibly easy to operate. With the push of a button or the click of a remote control, you can open and shut every shade in a room. Whether you (or a loved one) have mobility challenges, or simply like the idea of raising and shutting the blinds in your living room from your couch, motorized shades are an easy option. If you live in a home with high ceilings or very tall windows, motorized shades are almost a requisite, since manually operated versions can not only be cumbersome and time-consumming to use, but dangerous (if you’re pulling shades up a 15-foot ceiling, there is a bigger chance of them getting pulled down)
- Programming.Do you know that the light hits the antique oriental rug in your living room at 3 p.m. each day? Going out of town and want to give the impression that someone is home? Hands down, one of the biggest benefits of motorized shades is the fact that they are programmable. You can set them to close for a certain time period each day, or schedule them to shut before you go to bed, and open around the time you wake up in the morning.
- Style. Just like traditional window shades, motorized shades come in a wide variety of styles and fabric options to suit the style of your home. But, there’s one added benefit to choosing a motorized version: There are no unsightly cords hanging in front of your windows.
