Motorized Shades

Today, motorization is an integral part of how we interact with the world.  It is the way of the future that now extends to window coverings.  Motorized blinds and shades combine style, convenience and safety for the perfect solution to hard-to-reach windows.  Or maybe you want to save time because you have multiple window coverings that you’d like to raise or lower all at once.  Even if you just prefer luxury and the ease of operation that motorization provides, your life will become so much easier!  Simple to maintain, motorized blinds and shades are the most convenient way to regulate sunlight and privacy.  You have the ability to adjust your window coverings to the desired height with a remote, wireless wall switch, smartphone or tablet.  With the quick push of a button or flip of a switch, you can easily control your blinds or shades from across the room.  No more leaning, reaching over the couch or climbing up a step ladder to grab hazardous cords or wands.  Now, children and pets stay safe as well. 

At Blinds & Designs, we strive to be the leader in motorization by offering a huge selection of motorized options with the latest and greatest technology.  From timers to sun sensors, we incorporate the most up-to-date equipment to keep your home insulated and protected when you are at work or on vacation.  Timers allow you to program your window coverings to open and close at specific times while sensors signal them to close when the sun is at its brightest.  These features provide significant savings in energy costs and keep fabrics, rugs, upholstery and artwork from fading.  We can even easily integrate new technology to work alongside an existing system. 

The type of motorization depends on what type of window treatment you prefer.  With shades, motorized lift is used to raise or lower the entire shade.  Ask your Blinds & Designs designer about the top-down / bottom-up feature that lets you open your shades from the top and the bottom, allowing you to create the perfect balance of natural light and privacy.  If blinds are more your style, motorized tilt is used to tilt the slats or vanes open or closed.  Cellular, pleated, roman, roller and solar shades use motorized lift while vertical, wood and faux wood blinds use motorized tilt.
