Looking for a way to bring luxury and convenience to your Lafayette, LA home? Look no further: Motorized shades and drapes are the smart automation solution for you.
But how exactly can these features change your daily life? We go through the basic benefits of installing automated window treatments, and how they can transform even the simplest of tasks.
You can install motorized shades and drapes in a brand new construction or retrofit your existing home. We can also retrofit your existing drapes in your existing home onto a motorized drapery rod.
Read on to see how smart shades and drapes can transform your home!
You might think having a lighting control system is the only way to adjust your room’s lights – but what about the sun’s natural rays? Motorized shades and drapes can help get that unique glow into your space.
Schedule your shades and drapes to raise or lower during certain hours of the day, or even install photo sensors that will notice when the sun is shining through your windows.
When the rays are a little gentler, such as in the morning or late evening, your shades can automatically raise themselves up and let in the warmth and light.
This is especially ideal in media room situations. If the sun is too harsh or bright, your fancy drapes or sun shades can lower to keep any glare off your screens, protect your interior, and help prevent solar heat gain.
There’s a common fear that adding new smart technology to your décor will ruin your home’s interior design. This is simply untrue!
Motorized shades and drapes not only bring you comfort and efficiency, but they also add a nice touch of style to your existing decorations.
If you have floor-to-ceiling windows that you’ve left bare because you can’t reach the shades on your own, automated shades can save the day. You can dress your large windows and just press a button to operate them how you choose.
If you want to go with a more traditional design for your living spaces, motorized drapes are an ideal solution. And you don't have to deal with the hassle of moving heavy fabric when you want to let some sunlight in.
With every shade or drape you pick, you have endless fabric, style, and pattern options to select, as well as dual roll solutions. You can choose blackout shades to transform a room into a media space and then roll them up to reveal sheer, colorful shades that go well with your décor.
Throughout the year, you use a lot of your energy on the heating or cooling of your house. Motorized shades and drapes can help in this area too.
When it’s hot outside, again, your shades or drapes with heavy fabrics can help stop solar heat gain. Your AC usually works hard to cool down your home, attempting to prevent this problem as well. Now your motorized window treatments can do it and cut down on your energy usage big-time.
For example, during the cold months, your shades and drapes can provide your home with needed insulation. Honeycomb shades, for example, are designed specifically for this issue, but any placement that covers the gap between shade and window helps. So proper spacing is crucial to get the desired insulation.
The great news is you don’t have to compromise style or convenience to reduce your carbon footprint.
