Window coverings are an essential component of a home’s design. They add beauty, block an unsightly view, and accent the other elements of your home décor. Blinds or shades function well, but there are distinct advantages to upgrading to motorized blinds.
Luxury and Resale Value
Obviously, motorized blinds or shades add an element of beauty and luxury, and in so doing, increase the resale value of your home. But if you’re not planning to sell your home in the near future, you should consider how adding motorized blinds is a good investment for your home.
Motorized blinds can be programmed to rise or fall based on the time of day and the weather outside. This will allow sunlight to come in when the weather’s cold outside and can block the sunlight from entering the home when the weather is hot. In addition, if there’s a sudden change in the weather, you can adjust your shades remotely with your tablet or smartphone. These measures can reduce the load on your HVAC system to allow you to realize real energy savings.
Controlling Natural Light.
Window blinds and shades have the job of controlling natural light. When you have motorized shades connected to your phone or tablet, you can raise or lower them to maximize the healthful benefits of natural light, based on the position of the sun in the sky at any time of day. Motorized shades come in a variety of levels of transparency from sheer shades that filter in soft light all the way to blackout shades that will completely darken a room.
Privacy When You Need It
With their programmable features, motorized shades can be set to open or close as needed to maximize your privacy. For example, a bathroom shade should be closed in the morning during your “getting ready for work” time but can be opened during the day to brighten the bath. You could program the bedroom shades to slowly open in the morning to gradually wake you for the day.
