3 Benefits of Adding Motorized Shades to Your Home

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 get to? You could be wondering about the effort required to dust or adjust your shades.

At Louver Shop of Ft. Lauderdale, function and style aren’t mutually exclusive. Many of our custom shades can be motorized. These shades mesh stunning design with precise and convenient control. As an extra bonus, you can move your shades from your phone or link them with a compatible smart home system.

If you’re thinking about updating your house’s window treatments, here are some reasons why having motorization is an excellent idea!

Why Motorized Shades Are Worth It


Motorized shades are a strong choice for your home, but they are more expensive than shades with manual operating systems. Although their pluses more than pay for themselves through convenience and technological updates.

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

1. Convenience

It can be tedious and time-consuming to raise and lower your shades. A want for privacy or diffused sunlight demands fast access. With PowerView®, you’ll appreciate easy everyday control. You can raise or lower your blinds with the tap of a button or by using your smartphone.

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

2. Smart Home Integration

Our motorized shades work with a wide variety of smart home systems, such as 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 away.

Schedules can be individually programmed for different rooms and windows. For example, you can schedule your bedroom shades to move as the sun disappears. 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 quality option for our energy-efficient honeycomb shades. Custom schedules will help maintain your residence’s temperature. When you’re at work or on vacation, you can alter all your window treatments remotely. This may result in decreased monthly energy costs!

3. Stylish and Functional


Window treatments with hand controls might not offer the clean lines or sophistication you’re trying for. Motorized shades offer useful functionality without giving up exceptional design. What’s more, they can make fine-tuning the aesthetic of a space fast and simple. Go from light to cozy in just a few moments.

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