Advancements in technology have extended to every aspect of our lives and window coverings are no exception. Window coverings are many and include blinds, shades, drapes, curtains, etc. Most manufacturers have come up with innovative version of motorized shades, keeping in mind their numerous advantages.
Motorized versions of window coverings make for effortless and better control and management in case of harsh sunlight, bright glaring natural light, heat gain, fading of flooring, furniture and other art work, etc. Let us see some of their advantages below:
- Easy of Handling and Convenience
Window coverings need to be handled all the time but it is a lot more easy and convenient to do so with the motorized ones as they can be pulled apart or drawn in any direction with the touch of a single button on a remote control or a wall mounted switch.
- Offer Wide View
Since these coverings can be pulled completely, they offer a wide view of the exterior without any hindrance.
- Protection and Security
Most of these coverings can be programmed to be operated while you are away. You can program them to be drawn after dark or set a time. This way view of the interiors is blocked and protects your home not only from elements like burglars but also harsh sunlight that may affect your interiors. Timers can be pre-set to raise or draw the shades or blinds at particular intervals.
- Durable and Long Lasting
Motorized window coverings are much more durable and long lasting as compared to manual ones as they are not subject to physical handling which ultimately amounts to manhandling and rough usage through cords.
- Better in Appearance
Such window coverings are mostly cordless and hence give a neat look and appearance minus the unsightly cords or strings that keep dangling affecting a room’s aesthetics.
Safety in homes with pets and children is a crucial factor. Motorized window coverings are a very safe option for such homes as they do not have a risk of any injury from entanglement from cords which hang in loops.
- Low Energy Bills
Motorized window coverings lower your energy bills substantially because they allow better light and temperature management. You can control the amount of light or heat coming into a room depending on what temperature you wish to maintain indoors. This makes air conditioning or heating of rooms more effective as heat loss is well controlled.
