3 Pluses of Adding Motorized Shades to 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 might be anxious about the effort needed 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 compatible 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 house, but they are more expensive than shades with traditional operating systems. Although their benefits more than pay for themselves via ease 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 move your shades. A desire for privacy or diffused sunlight demands quick access. With PowerView®, you’ll enjoy 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 enhance the control you have over sunlight.

2. Smart Home Integration

Our motorized shades work 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 individually programmed for different rooms and windows. For example, you can program your bedroom shades to lower as the sun sets. Move them through remote control or voice activation with a compatible system. Wherever you are, privacy and convenience are at your fingertips.

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 each of your window treatments remotely. This could lead to reduced monthly energy use!

3. Stylish and Functional


Window treatments with hand controls may not produce the clean lines or elegance you’re looking 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 simple. Go from breezy to cozy in just a few moments.

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