When homeowners consider what smart technology to add to their homes, they often contemplate automated HVAC and lighting control or media rooms with high-performance speakers and stunning visuals. Yet one of the most overlooked pieces of home technology, designed for your windows, are motorized shades. This elegant addition to any sun drenched room adds comfort, convenience, and beauty. Let’s explore further how motorized window treatments can augment various rooms in your home.
Sun exposure throughout the day can damage room interiors. Faded floors, sun bleached upholstery, and cracked wood finishes are just some of the results of too much sun. With automated shades, homeowners can easily protect furniture, fine art, rugs, and wood surfaces from the sun’s harmful UV rays. And the best part, you don’t need to be home to open or close the blinds. Motorized window treatments can be programmed to respond to temperature fluctuations inside the room, scheduled for time of day or season, and compensate for sunrise and sunset changes throughout the year with their astronomic clock.
Motorized shades and draperies not only add style and elegance to your dining room, but can easily transition the space to create the right amount of light for a dinner party or add privacy for a late-night family snack. Perfectly aligning the shades within a bank of windows is nearly impossible. But with motorized window treatments, every shade can move in perfect synchronization, and without those unsightly pull cords. A motorized shading system can also incorporate lighting controls for ultimate ambiance control.
Enjoy more movies and television without harsh glare or a washed-out picture due to sunlight streaming through the windows. Press the play button on your remote and watch as the shades respond appropriately by lowering to block out sunlight. Want to see just how simple, yet elegant this kind of control can be?
