3 Advantages of Installing Motorized Shades in Your Space

The amount of light in a space creates just as much of a statement as the window treatments themselves. But what if your windows are wide, tall or otherwise difficult to get to? You could be uneasy about the effort necessary to dust or adjust your shades.

At Louver Shop of Richmond, function and design aren’t mutually exclusive. Many of our custom shades can be motorized. These shades meld stunning design with precise and convenient control. As an additional bonus, you can control your shades via your phone or link them with an appropriate smart home system.

If you’re considering updating your residence’s window treatments, here are a couple reasons why adding motorization is a great idea!

Why Motorized Shades Are Worth It


Motorized shades are a strong addition to your residence, but they are more expensive than shades with manual operating systems. Although their benefits more than pay for themselves through convenience and up-to-date technology.

When gauging the benefits of motorized shades, consider the following:

1. Convenience

It can be annoying and time-consuming to adjust your shades. A want for privacy or less intense sunlight demands quick access. With PowerView®, you’ll benefit from easy daily control. You can move your blinds with the tap of a button or on your smartphone.

Using motorized control with our sheer shades is a simple way to enhance the control you have over sunlight.

2. Smart Home Integration

Our motorized shades work with a broad number of smart home systems, such as Amazon Alexa, Siri® on your Apple device or Google Assistant. You can also adjust them with the PowerView App whether you’re at home or at work.

Schedules can be individually programmed for various rooms and windows. For example, you can set your bedroom shades to close as the sun sets. Operate them via remote control or voice activation with a compatible system. Wherever you are, privacy and convenience are never out of reach.

Smart shades are a fantastic option for our energy-efficient honeycomb shades. Custom schedules will help regulate your residence’s temperature. When you’re at work or on vacation, you can adjust all your window treatments remotely. This might lead to decreased monthly energy bills!

3. Good Looking and Functional


Window treatments with manual controls struggle to offer the clean lines or elegance you’re looking for. Motorized shades provide useful functionality without giving up luxurious design. What’s more, they can make fine-tuning the aesthetic of a space swift and easy. Go from light to cozy in just a few moments.

Motorized control is a useful addition for roller and solar shades. Their contemporary design blends well with multiple different styles of decor. With a collection of fabrics to work with, you’ll be able to truly personalize your level of privacy and natural light.
