Motorized blinds are one of the most recent advancements to come to the window treatment industry in many years. Many people might think motorized blinds are for lazy people who do not want to get up to shut the blinds when the sun creates a glare on the television. Customized, motorized blinds can definitely be used that way, but that is only one reason that motorized blinds and shades are a trend that is here to stay.
Motorized blinds, like those you can get from Shades On Wheels, can be controlled by the remote that comes with it or they can be connected to your smart phones and tablets. This allows you to set your blinds and shades to open and close based on the time of day. For example, if you want to set the blinds to open at 7 am to help you wake up with light on your face, you can. Getting some sun exposure is a really great way to train your body to wake up at a certain time. If you want to set the shades to close at 8 pm to signify to your children that it is time to start winding down for bed, you can. This can be especially helpful during the summer when the sun stays out longer. If you put these blinds in a restaurant, you can set them shades to slowly adjust to block the setting sun from blinding or annoying guests as they socialize and eat. This can provide an entirely new level of service for guests since they will not need to ask for help. If there is ever a problem, the settings can always be updated. For example, if it is a rainy or cloudy day, you might not need the shades to block the sun.
These custom blinds and shades can provide more than a luxury level service to your home and business though. One of the best reasons people are choosing customized, motorized blinds is economical. These shades and blinds can act as an extra layer of insulation to windows. It is currently common to feel a significant temperature different near windows. These blinds and shades can keep the cold air outside while keeping your heated air inside, or they can keep your cooled air inside while keeping the heat outside. This will make you, your family, your guests, and/or your employees more comfortable, and save you money on your electric bill every month.
Since these blinds can be controlled from anywhere, you can always change the settings based on the whether. For example, on cold rainy days, you can help your heating system out by keeping your blinds closed.
Custom, motorized blinds are a fun addition to any business or home, and can keep a little extra money in your wallet instead of the electric company’s. These customized window treatments might stop you from having to take an extra twenty steps a day, but there are better ways you can make up for those lost steps.
