Forget the Joneses! Motorized window shades and blinds, long a staple of fiction and futurism, is now within every consumers’ reach. With the addition of motorization, window shades can take your home comfort, protection and convenience, to a whole new level. A level that will maximize the joys of domestic life while minimizing its worries and hassles. Here we discuss the basics, costs, and benefits of motorization.
When it comes to choosing which type of system will power your new motorized window shades, you have a variety of options to choose from, such as: hardwired, plug-in, RF radio frequency, and battery operated. All are controlled from either a handheld remote control or a wall switch – with just the push of a button, you can control how much or how little light your home receives.
Motorization can be installed in virtually any room including your bedroom, bathroom, media room, two-story great room, living room, and/or kitchen. Investing the money upfront for a quality system in these rooms can save you considerable money and time down the road. You’ll also want to research the warranty that accompanies your system to ensure years of trouble-free operation.
Products currently available with the option for motorization, include:
- Solar shades
- Cellular shades
- Aluminum blinds
- Faux wood blinds
- Real wood blinds
In truth, the final cost of motorized window shades, will vary greatly depending on a variety of factors including the type of motor you select, whether or not your existing window treatments are compatible with motorization, and the size and number of windows you’re looking to treat with motorized window shades.
