The Truth About Motorized Shades And Whether They’re Worth The Expense

There are some misconceptions about features like custom shades or motorization for window treatments. The most common question people have as homeowners and consumers is whether it’s all worth the added expense.

When it comes to custom window treatments, settling for prefabricated or semi-custom options isn’t worth the little bit of savings you’ll see. The value of custom work and what it adds to your home alone makes it well worth the investment. So, let’s see how that translates to motorization upgrades for your window treatments.

Adding The Whistles & Bells To Your Smart Home

We live in an age where technology is ingrained into many facets of our lives and our homes. It’s never been more important to understand the options you have for upgrades like motorized shades, so you can decide which Smart Home features are essential for your family and household.

Why is motorization a good idea for your family?


Above all else, eliminating the need for dangling cords to operate your shades is worth upgrading to motorization. Prevent injuries or suffocation among children in pets in your home by cutting the cords and using motorized shades instead.


The primary reason families don’t use their window treatments is it’s a hassle. You’re much more likely to actually use your blinds, shades, or shutters if you can adjust them with the push of a button on a remote or an app on your Smartphone.


The best way to make your home more energy efficient is to utilize your window treatments the way they were intended. However, if you’re not bothering to open or close your shades because it’s too much work to go to each window to make the adjustment, you’re causing too much hot or cold air to linger and make your home less efficient.


Keep your home as comfortable as it should be without relying entirely on your HVAC system. Your home’s interior should be comfortable without spending a fortune to run the heat or air conditioning.
