3 Advantages of Installing Motorized Shades in Your Rooms

The amount of light in your home produces just as much of a statement as the window treatments themselves. But what if these windows are wide, tall or otherwise tough to reach? You could be anxious about the effort required to clean or readjust your shades.

At Louver Shop of Birmingham, function and design aren’t mutually exclusive. Many of our custom shades can be motorized. These shades combine fashionable design with precise and convenient control. As an additional bonus, you can adjust your shades via your phone or link them with an appropriate smart home system.

If you’re thinking about updating your house’s window treatments, here are several reasons why having motorization is a great idea!

Why Motorized Shades Are Worth It


Motorized shades are a strong option for your home, but they are more expensive than shades with standard operating systems. Although their perks more than pay for themselves through convenience and up-to-date technology.

When gauging the pluses of motorized shades, consider the following:

1. Convenience

It can be frustrating and time-consuming to adjust your shades. A need for privacy or softer sunlight demands simple access. With PowerView®, you’ll enjoy easy everyday control. You can move your blinds with the press of a button or on your smartphone.

Using motorized control with our sheer shades is a good way to increase the control you have over sunlight.

2. Smart Home Integration

Our motorized shades are compatible with a wide number of smart home systems, like Amazon Alexa, Siri® on your Apple device or Google Assistant. You can also readjust them with the PowerView App whether you’re at home or at work.

Schedules can be separately programmed for various rooms and windows. For example, you can schedule your bedroom shades to move as the sun goes down. Readjust them with remote control or voice activation with a compatible system. Wherever you are, privacy and convenience are at your fingertips.

Smart shades are a great option for our energy-efficient honeycomb shades. Custom schedules will help maintain your home’s temperature. When you’re at work or on vacation, you can alter all your window treatments remotely. This may cause reduced monthly energy use!

3. Stylish and Functional


Window treatments with traditional controls may not create the clean lines or sophistication you’re trying for. Motorized shades offer simple functionality without losing out on exceptional design. What’s more, they can make adjusting the aesthetic of a space swift and easy. Go from light to blackout in just a few moments.

Motorized control is a valuable addition for roller and solar shades. Their contemporary design blends well with many different types of decor. With a collection of fabrics to choose from, you’ll be able to truly personalize your level of privacy and natural light.
