3 Pluses of Installing Motorized Shades in Your Rooms

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

At Louver Shop of Columbia, practicality and style aren’t mutually exclusive. Many of our custom shades can be motorized. These shades blend elegant design with precise and convenient control. As an added bonus, you can control your shades via your phone or link them with a suitable smart home system.

If you’re thinking about updating your home’s window treatments, here are some reasons why adding motorization is a must!

Why Motorized Shades Are Worth It


Motorized shades are a great addition to your residence, but they are more expensive than shades with manual operating systems. Although their benefits more than pay for themselves with convenience and up-to-date technology.

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

1. Convenience

It can be frustrating and time-consuming to raise and lower your shades. A desire for privacy or diffused sunlight demands simple access. With PowerView®, you’ll benefit from uncomplicated everyday control. You can move your blinds with the press of a button or via your smartphone.

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

2. Smart Home Integration

Our motorized shades can be paired with a wide variety of smart home systems, like Amazon Alexa, Siri® on your Apple device or Google Assistant. You can also manage them through the PowerView App whether you’re at home or out and about.

Schedules can be independently programmed for various rooms and windows. For example, you can program your bedroom shades to move as the sun goes down. Move them through remote control or voice activation with a compatible system. Wherever you are, privacy and convenience are easily accessible.

Smart shades are a quality option for our energy-efficient honeycomb shades. Custom schedules will help regulate your indoor temperature. When you’re at work or on vacation, you can move all your window treatments remotely. This could cause decreased monthly energy bills!

3. Good Looking and Functional


Window treatments with hand controls might not produce the clean lines or elegance you’re hoping for. Motorized shades offer simple functionality without giving up luxurious design. What’s more, they can make adjusting the aesthetic of a space swift and straightforward. Go from open to dark in just a few moments.

Motorized control is a valuable addition for roller and solar shades. Their contemporary design complements many different styles of decor. With lots of fabrics to choose from, you’ll be able to customize your level of privacy and natural light.
