When it comes to home decor, the bang is in the details. Window treatments can bring so much beauty to your home. When done right, they can also create a sense of luxury and ease. And there are very few touches that compare with the luxury of remote-controlled shades. We all love the look of a room bathed in natural light, but we want control over how and when we let the sunshine in. Whether it’s single-room or whole-home shading, smart shades offer style and convenience while fully leaning into the advantages of a smart home: privacy, comfort, and security.
Why Choose Remote-Controlled Shades?
Remote-controlled shades are becoming a must in high-end smart homes. Here are a few reasons why:
- They allow you to enjoy and embrace the beauty of natural light while controlling how you let it in.
- They create energy savings by reducing your need for electric light when you’re home during the day. You can also time closing to minimize heat gain and lower cooling costs.
- They protect your furniture, carpets, and flooring from UV rays and sun damage when the sun is at its brightest.
- They offer convenience and control, taking one more task off your plate as you move through your busy day. You can operate your shades from anywhere using your smartphone or tablet.
- They create a stylish and elegant ambiance. Today’s remote-controlled shades are chic and attractive, available in colors and styles ideally suited to luxury homes.
- They boost security and privacy, protecting your home from prying eyes, whether you’re home or not. Remote-controlled shades offer “away” settings that let you automatically close all blinds in your home.
