3 Reasons Motorized Curtains Make Your Life Better

You’ve likely heard of motorized blinds - you know, the kind you can control with just your voice - but did you know that your drapes can also be automated? Smart home technology is not just reserved for blinds and shades. If you’re still on the fence, these three reasons will be all you need to install motorized curtains in your home.


Smart home technology is taking the world by storm. The incredible convenience is one of the most common reasons homeowners install motorized window treatments. Because smart shades can be operated remotely, you’ll never have to worry about getting up from your so-comfortable-you-could-take-a-nap-on-it sofa just to shut your shades. Use your remote, smartphone, or voice to shut out the outside world without losing your perfect lounging position. 

Motorized shades can also be programmed to open and close at specified times throughout the day. Do you want to wake up with the sun shining in your room? Set your motorized curtains to open at sunrise every day. Does your home office get a bit too warm from the afternoon sun? Schedule your window shades to adjust as the sun moves throughout the afternoon. 

Motorized shades make your home more comfortable without needing to lift a finger!

As stunning as they may be, some window treatments, including drapes, can pose potential safety hazards for homes with pets or young children. Long dangling control cords can be tempting to play with, and adventurous kids and pets may try to climb or play with your drapery. It is our mission to help reduce the number of window treatment-related injuries.

We recommend motorized window treatments, including automatic curtains and drapes, to the families we work with. The key to creating a safer environment is eliminating potential hazards. When you install smart shades, you remove long and dangling cords from your window treatments, removing a safety concern from your home. 

Energy Savings

To improve your carbon footprint in 2023, motorized shades are a must-have addition to your home. Standard drapes are already environmentally friendly, as the thick fabric helps insulate your home and reduce your energy costs. Increase these benefits by adding motorization!

As much as we love natural light, intense sunlight can warm your home and cause your air conditioning to work harder. Expansive windows are stunning, but they also allow a substantial amount - as much as 30% - of your home’s heating and cooling costs to escape. By programming your motorized curtains to open and close automatically throughout the day, you can save on your energy bill and help the environment simultaneously.

Pro Tip: Pair automation technology with cellular shades to increase the overall benefits of energy efficiency!
