Window coverings do more than simply frame your windows; they are responsible for controlling light, providing privacy and even protecting your furniture. Interior shades are a great option for your home. For the ultimate in safety, beauty and functionality, consider installing motorized shades with a number of benefits you can't afford to be without.
Benefits of Motorized Shades
Motorized shades can be controlled remotely using an electronic control device that gives you the freedom to adjust your shade with the touch of a button. In addition to the convenience, remotes are ideal for anyone with mobility issues or for shades in hard-to-reach places, such as behind furniture or above an entryway.
Timing Is Everything
One of the biggest advantages of motorized shades is the ability to program them to open and close at set times. The benefits of this option include:
- Increased energy efficiency - Interior shades can help block out the harmful UV rays of the sun, which can cause fabrics, art, and furniture to fade. They can also help to prevent heat gain during daylight hours, reducing the cost of cooling your home.
- Enhanced safety - Make your home look occupied during times you are away for extended periods of time by setting the timer to automatically open or close your shades as desired.
- An added alarm clock - Schedule your shades to open at a set time each morning. Flooding the room with light will help you wake up, and because there’s no snooze button, you’ll be able to rise out of bed easier than with a traditional alarm clock.
