How to Decide Which Smart Home Shading is Right For You

by Ronald Elias

Lights … camera … shading?

While other areas of the home may get more design attention, is there really anything better than being able to control how and when windows let in light? Smart shades give you the power to literally control light flow in a way that’s easier than ever before, and gives you complete control over your smart home.  

Deciding what type of smart shades to get can be a tad daunting, especially if you are a first-time buyer. You don’t have to decide alone, though: Here are a few options you should consider if you want to bring the best smart shading solutions home.


Hungry for Honeycomb?

While smart shades are going to add a bunch of functionality to your home, you also want to make sure that you enjoy their aesthetic and style! Vantage automated shades come in both roller or honeycomb options, giving you choices for styling your space.  

They aren’t the only customization options you have available, either. Different styles and colors are always offered – over a hundred -- which means you’ll be able to pick shades that already fit your interior décor!

Of course, if you’re just not sure, we would be glad to lend you our expert opinion on what smart shades will work and look better in your home – give us a call today and we’d be glad to chat all about our various smart shading options and what they can do for you!


Looking for Luxury?

Design isn’t all that matters when it comes to stylizing and adding functionality to your home. If you are looking for something that will fit right into your already established high-end condo, then you should check out Lutron’s Palladiom shading system. The brackets are hand-finished and even hide all of the wiring and buttons – it’s smart shading like you’ve never seen it before.

But, if you are looking for a less expensive option, Lutron has you – and your windows – covered with the Serena smart shades. These shades are wireless and also can be controlled with Google Assistant – so get ready to open and close shades with your voice!


New or Old?

One of the other decisions you need to make smart-shades-wise is deciding when you want to start thinking smart.

There are two different ways you can go with smart shading: Including them in your original construction plan or adding them in after the fact. It just depends at what point you want to include them, or if you already have a home built that you just want to add them to.

The good news is that Vantage has solutions for both options – you just need to figure out which solution you want to go with. Either way, you are only one phone call away from seeing your house in a whole new light!


Smart shading is going to be big this year, and you don’t want to be the last person on the block to realize the simplicity and relaxation of automatically controlled shades. Give us a call today and we’ll get you started on your first step into your automated future.
