If you’re thinking of upgrading your home décor, very often the first step is replacing your older blinds with newer, more stylish ones. Blinds can make a huge difference in both the tone and feel of your home, but also the amount of control you have over the temperature inside your home. An often overlooked solution is motorized blinds.
Motorized blinds have been around for a while, but just like computers they have advanced significantly in the past ten to twenty years. Gone are the days of loud opening and closing noises with few aesthetic options. Modern motorized blinds can be extremely customizable, aesthetically pleasing, and fully automated, not to mention convenient and energy saving.
Automating your blinds is one of the many conveniences of motorized blinds. You can link them to a specific schedule that you set, even while you’re away. You can install sunlight detectors that will protect your home from unwanted sun, or automatically let in the sun during colder months. You can also use automation to keep heat in your home, saving you on energy and heating costs.
Of course, you’ll want to have your own control of your motorized blinds in addition to the automated settings. Luckily, there are many different ways that you can achieve this. Not only do you have controls over the blinds in each window, but you can also install controls to move all the blinds in a room, or in your entire house. Some setups will even allow you to control the blinds when you’re away from your home. In any setup that you choose to install, the controls will be much easier and convenient than manual blinds.
One consideration for people with children or pets is hanging cords or strings, a common safety concern associated with manual blinds. There is also the fact that the cords on manual blinds are often unsightly and inconveniently placed. With motorized blinds, you can control them at the touch of a button and not worry about choking hazards for your children, or straining your back trying to get to the cord behind your couch.
And of course, if you are concerned about your back, then opening and closing your blinds with a drawstring can be quite a chore. Being able to control the blinds at the touch of a button is going to save you that strain, especially if you’ve got thick, heavy blinds. This can be an important consideration, and maybe the most appealing reason to motorize your blinds.
