Motorized Blinds – Why Motorize?

motorized blindsThere are many reasons to consider motorized blinds, shades and drapery and the benefits go beyond the “wow, that’s cool” factor!

So, why go for motorized blinds or shades?


The first major benefit to motorization is convenience.  At the push of a button, open and closing your shades, drapes or blinds are done in a snap.  You don’t have to move from the sofa, your desk, or the dinner table, especially if you’ve downloaded the Platinum App.  You can raise and lower all the shades in your window without having to go to every room; save yourself time by controlling every window in the house from your app.


Motorization also helps to keep your home private, plus, enjoy greater peace of mind while away by making your home look occupied. By setting a daily timer for your shades, they will automatically raise and lower.  You can choose to lower your shades when the sun sets and raise them when your alarm goes off in the morning.  The sunlight in the morning will help to wake you up, and while you’re away, the change in the the position of the blinds will make your home appear lived-in to prevent break-ins.


There are other safety facets to power as well.  You can also raise and lower hard-to-reach windows whether they are up high, behind furniture or above a staircase. Don’t strain to reach a cord, climb on a counter or precariously lean over a stair railing. Let power control all your hard-to-reach windows allowing you to enjoy light when you want to but privacy and sun control when you need the shades closed.  Power shades also are cordless which eliminates the danger to children and pets from your home. Cords are a strangulation hazard for small children and pets.  There are other cordless options, but power allows for a clean look, and stream-lined function while protecting your loved ones.

Energy Efficiency

Finally, motorized shades help to keep your home climate controlled thus capitalizing on their energy efficiency.  There are features available to close the shades when your home gets too hot, thus preventing your house from heating up while you’re at work and forcing your cooling costs to rise.

The WOW factor

But let’s not under estimate that wow factor.  Besides all these great benefits, power shades are are sure to impress your friends!

Lisa Scheff listened to my needs and came up with a very creative kitchen floor plan that transformed an antiquated kitchen “add on” into a fully functional space with maximum storage. Her out of the box thinking helped me realize that removing a chimney was the key to creating the space I wanted – a solution I would not have come up with on my own. Armed with Lisa’s floor plan, I was able to successfully orchestrate our kitchen renovation. I highly recommend her.
