If you have windows in your house, and who doesn’t, you need window coverings. What should you choose? Should it be drapes, shades, shutters, or blinds? Or should it be a combination of two or more? A popular option that many are choosing are blinds or shutters. Your choices for these window coverings are seemingly endless, and it can sometimes be hard to choose the style and colors that will fit in with the rest of your décor.
Once you’ve decided on the style and colors however, one more option you need to consider is motorization. Motorized shade and blinds are becoming very popular and for good reason: convenience! Being able to raise, tilt, or close your blinds can be a great advantage. This is especially true if you have large windows or blinds that are hard to reach. If you have blinds on very high windows or even skylights, you’ll find that being able to remotely control them is magical! Even if your windows are easy to reach, it’s still such a nice feature to be able to remain on your couch while you adjust the shades! After all, you don’t get up to change the channel on your TV, so why bother getting up and down to adjust your shades or blinds?
Motorized blinds can also make it much easier to deal with weather conditions. Imagine that you’re watching your favorite show, the clouds outside suddenly disappear, and a glare appears on your flat screen! You can eliminate that sudden glare by simply picking up your remote and voilà! Like magic, the blinds close, the glare is gone, and you haven’t missed a moment of your show.
Motorized blinds are also a great way to improve your home’s energy efficiency. In the summer, you will be able to block the heat from coming into your home by using your shades. In the winter, the blinds or shades will help you to keep the heat in and the cold out.
Because they are cordless, motorized blinds are more attractive than conventional blinds. In addition, by having no cords hanging down, they’re safer around children or pets and present no choking hazard.
All in all, motorized shades are a magical solution to your window covering needs!
