3 Benefits of Adding Motorized Shades to Your Home

The amount of light in a space creates just as much of a statement as the window treatments themselves. But what if these windows are wide, tall or otherwise inconvenient to reach? You could be concerned about the effort needed to dust or readjust your shades.

At Louver Shop of San Antonio, practicality and stylishness aren’t mutually exclusive. Many of our custom shades can be motorized. These shades mesh elegant 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 thinking about updating your house’s window treatments, here are some reasons why getting motorization is an excellent idea!

Why Motorized Shades Are Worth It


Motorized shades are a quality addition to a house, but they are more expensive than shades with standard operating systems. Although their benefits more than pay for themselves through ease and innovation.

When assessing the pluses of motorized shades, consider the following:

1. Convenience

It can be annoying and time-consuming to raise and lower your shades. A want for privacy or softer sunlight demands quick access. With PowerView®, you’ll appreciate simple everyday control. You can raise or lower your blinds with the touch of a button or via your smartphone.

Using motorized control with our sheer shades is an easy way to increase the control you have over sunlight.

2. Smart Home Integration

Our motorized shades can be paired with a large number of smart home systems, including Amazon Alexa, Siri® on your Apple device or Google Assistant. You can also manage them through the PowerView App whether you’re at home or away.

Schedules can be separately programmed for various rooms and windows. For example, you can program your bedroom shades to close as the sun disappears. Move them via remote control or voice activation with a compatible system. Wherever you are, privacy and convenience are at your fingertips.

Smart shades are a quality option for our energy-efficient honeycomb shades. Custom schedules will help maintain your indoor temperature. When you’re at work or on vacation, you can control each of your window treatments remotely. This might lead to lower monthly energy bills!

3. Stylish and Functional


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

Motorized control is a useful addition for roller and solar shades. Their streamlined design is compatible with lots of different types of decor. With a collection of fabrics available, you’ll be able to truly personalize your level of privacy and natural light.
