4 Handy Spots To Install Motorized Shades In Your Home

One of the most significant functions of modern smart home systems is being able to control your environment with the touch of a button. Adjust the temperature and dim the lamps; even put on some music from the other room.

And don’t forget to include motorized shades as part of your system, so that you can easily let the sun in or out, on demand. Motorized window shades can be useful in many rooms of your home, and can be an easy way to have your whole family be able to adjust them since they will be controlled via remote.

There are some ideal spots to start with when installing motorized shades in your home.

A Home Theater

If you have a window or two in your home theater, you don’t want any glare blocking your viewing, but you may also not want to install curtains. In that case, having motorized shades means you can control lighting with the touch of a button, and you can hide your blinds as quickly as you need to.

A Dining Room

You’re sitting at the table, enjoying your dinner together when you realize a view of the Orange County sunset is all that is missing, Rather than getting up to adjust your windows, click a button and you can lift your shades to see the splendor outside.

Bedrooms

Once you’re relaxed and ready for sleep, getting out of bed to close the window shades can be a real drag. With motorized shades, you can open and close them whenever you want, from wherever you are.

Entryways

When a central system controls your blinds, you can open and close them from anywhere, which means changing up your entryway when you are away to make it look like someone is home. Close them at night and open them during the day and no one will realize your house is empty.

Motorized Shades: Worth It? 4 Reasons They Absolutely Are

As a Southern California homeowner, you have no shortage of sun. But you also don’t want to live in a home that always has its shades down.

That’s why motorized window coverings are ideal for Southern California residents. They’ll make life easier and add to your home's overall comfort.

Is it worth it to invest in a motorized shade system? These are four reasons it absolutely is.

  1. Protect Your View

Whether you’re looking at water, downtown LA, or the mountains, you shouldn’t ever have to sacrifice your view. With motorized blinds, you can get the perfect amount of shade and light to see the view you paid for.

  1. Make Life Easier

From strings that get tangled to cords that are too high to reach, it can be a pain to deal with traditional window coverings. Decide when you want to raise your motorized shades and they’ll be up with the press of a button. Too high? Change them right back.

  1. Save Furniture And Art

Direct sunlight can quickly bleach out and damage your furniture and belongings. But what if you left home on a gray morning only to return to a blasting sun – and your shades were up. Instead, control your blinds from anywhere to make sure the sun isn’t harming your stuff.

  1. Save On Energy

Your window coverings are a great way to combat relying on a heating or cooling system. On a warm day, closing the shades will help keep things cooler, and on a cold day, letting in the sun can help heat things up; being able to control shades directly means always taking full advantage of nature. Automate your shades and get the most from all of your home’s systems.

Keep The California Sun Out With Alternatives To Traditional Window Dressings

Big, bulky curtains may be an aesthetic style for specific homes, but they’re not always the most practical. If your bedroom has six floor-to-ceiling windows, that’s a lot of ground to cover and work to be done whenever you want to keep out the light.

The same goes for traditional blinds, which can be a headache to raise and lower, especially for larger-size windows, where you have to worry about overlapping cords or slats facing the wrong direction.

When you’re headed to bed or looking to watch your favorite movie, the last thing to want to do is fumble with those cords or go around closing heavy curtains. Instead, using motorized shades on your windows means the ability to raise or lower your window protection with the click of a button, from anywhere.

What are some of the other benefits of using motorized shades over traditional window dressings?

Keep things safer: You don’t have to worry about kids or pets getting tangled in your blind’s cords when you use cordless motorized shades.

Be energy efficient: The ability to open and close blinds to utilize nature can help you save on your energy bill and be more environmentally friendly.

Maintain security: When you travel, prying eyes may be looking for signs as to whether you are home or not. Changing the position of your shades on a timer or remotely will help maintain the appearance that your house is occupied.

Protect your belongings: Sun damage can be a real problem for Southern California homeowners when it comes to furnishings, artwork, and certain types of flooring or wall coverings. Lowering those shades from afar when the sun unexpectedly comes out in the afternoon can help you protect your belongings for longer.
