What are the Benefits of Motorized Blinds?

Are you considering motorized shades or blinds for your home? Are you intrigued by motorized binds but not quite sure what all the benefits are? If so, you'll find yourself in good company!

Many homeowners who are considering motorized options for their window treatments have their interest piqued by some aspect of a motorized blinds solution, but aren't quite sure if that warrants the investment.

Here, we examine some of the top benefits that are associated with motorized shades or blinds:

Convenience

It's hard to rank the benefits of having motorized blinds or shades in your home, but if we had to pick one benefit that unites nearly every motorized blind owner, it would be the convenience factor.

Motorizing your window treatments allows you to automate a repetitive task that is key to the comfort of your home. Your motorized blinds allow you to adjust your window treatments with the touch of a button, at home and remotely. Use one remote or smart device to control all of your motorized window treatments, or schedule your blind adjustments to automatically occur throughout the day.

Safety

Most motorized blinds, (including roller blinds, solar blinds, draperies, and pleated blinds) are cordless – but these missing cords offer up a lot more than just convenience.

The cords used to operate traditional blinds and shades can be a hazard to children and pets. They seem like fun playthings, when in reality, they are choking and strangling hazards. Your motorized blinds are 100% cord and chain free, and are the safe and convenient solution for all members of your family, two and four-legged alike.

Energy Efficiency

If you are interested in maximizing your home's energy efficiency, motorized blinds may be just what you've been looking for. Opening and shutting your blinds is about much more than simply blocking or letting light into a room.

Your motorized blinds provide you with a quick and convenient way to save energy and money, all while creating a more pleasant home environment. Better yet, if you use a sensor or timer with your motorized blinds, you can automate your blinds to do this all for you, so you don't even have to think about it.

Security

Motorizing your window blinds can be a similarly way to increase the appearance of someone being at home: When something about your home changes, be it a light or the position of your shades, it may makes it appear as if someone has recently been in the home. This could make it less of a target and may also prevent someone from taking an unauthorized peek.

When you are away, place your blinds on a timer, or simply change the position from your smart device a few times a week.

Maximize the Space in Your Home

Motorized blinds make it easy for the spaces in your home to do double duty, with just the touch of a button. And that's just the indoor spaces!

Adding motorized outdoor shading solutions to your outdoor spaces lets you create defined spaces that aren't limited by weather. Motorized pergolas and awnings are fantastic ways to maximize the comfort and usability of your outdoor space.

Protect Your Furniture, Floors, and Art

One additional benefit that motorized blinds can confer is protecting furniture, floors, and valuable art from damaging sunlight.

While you certainly don't want to live in a dark cave, lowering your blinds during the brightest part of the day can prolong the life of your furniture, rugs, and even your wall paint! Sentimental family photos will also be protected from unintentional aging.

Of course, all window treatments worth their salt can protect the interior of your home from sun damage. However, many people simply neglect to change the position of their blinds to account for the position of the sun because it is both repetitive and boring and requires you to be home in order to do so. Motorized blinds take care of these problems automatically and are your perfect partner when it comes to protecting furniture and valuables from sun damage.
