How Motorized Shading Can Brighten Your Life

It’s time to stop living in the dark.

While our ancestors used to live outside and be at the whim of the day and night cycles of the sun and the moon, we’ve evolved past those ancient days. Indoor dwellings have given us the power to control how light enters our lives. And with the advent of motorized shades, home owners now have more control over their shading and lighting than ever.

But, you may wonder, “Why would I bother to do that? Can’t I just control my blinds and shades the old-fashion way?”

Sure. Sure you could. You could also go live outside and get eaten by a pack of wolves like your great great great grandfather who just never came home one night. Or you could live in modern times, look at the next step in smart home evolution, and dive into the luxury that motorized shading can provide you and your loved ones. Let’s take that path!   


First Impressions Are Everything

Let’s get down to brass tacks – light can really help make a moment shine. Let’s take this hypothetical situation: you are coming home from work. From the comfort of your car in the garage, you hit a button to have your shades raise. As you walk in the door, the light from outside is now bathing the entryway. Your first step into your house is now filled with light, all with a simple little click. You didn’t have to leave the blinds open all day or open them yourself manually once you got home. It’s almost like magic!

Light welcomes you home, and you can leave the troubles of the outside world at the darkness of your doorstep.


Rise and Shine

We get it. Getting up in the morning can be tough. It can be downright impossible sometimes. And one misstep in the morning can throw your whole day into a chaos you never fully recover from. What if it didn’t have to be that way? What if you had more control over those first few precious moments of the day?

With motorized shades, now you do. Wake up, hit the morning button, and your blinds will lower and adjust themselves to the correct position, giving you perfect morning lighting without you putting forth any effort. And without you having to adjust the shades and battle getting sun glare in your eyes and feeling like a deer in the headlights.

Installing and setting up motorized shades isn’t something you should try yourself, however. Give us a call and we’ll be glad to walk you through all of the lighting solutions available for you, and even help you figure out which ones will work best for your home! It’s a bright idea, trust us.

Protect Your Protectables

Maybe it’s art. Maybe it’s your hardwood floors. Maybe it’s light sensitive furniture. Or maybe it’s your kids’ LEGO sets. Either way, we all have precious belongings we’d like to protect from the sun, and moving them away from windows isn’t always an option.

Well, that problem is also in the past now. With motorized shading, you can set your shades to lower themselves every day at noon, blocking out light just when it needs to be blocked out. Your items are now protected, and your rooms are still lit. It’s pitch perfect lighting made for your modern living needs.


Tub Troubles

We’ve all had it happen – you prepare to sit and read in the bath, just dip your toes in, and then realize you forgot to close the blinds. This used to be a problem, but it’s another one that motorized shades have solved. With the press of a button, the blinds will be closed, and you’ll be back to your book in no time.


Motorized shades may seem like a simple upgrade, but these are just a few of the ways that this advanced smart technology can improve your entire home life. Give us a call today and we’ll have you on your way to a brighter tomorrow!
