Don’t Believe These Common Myths About Motorized Shades


Learn the truth about motorized shades for your Mandeville, LA home

Our customers sometimes come in with misconceptions about motorized shades. As experts, we know that these myths are misguided. Learn why you shouldn’t believe these common motorized shade myths and discover how they will enhance your Mandeville, LA home.




Motorized Shades Are Loud

Most motorized shades are very quiet. Lutron, in particular, has an exceptionally quiet motor, so you'll never be annoyed by the loud sound of a running engine. With just the press of a button, your shades will open or close almost silently.


Motorized Blinds Are Ugly

Motorized shades come in a variety of colors and styles to fit the specific aesthetics of your home. The control mechanisms also come in a variety of colors and finishes, so every aspect of your motorized shades can be beautiful.


Motorized Blinds Are Hard to Clean

The majority of custom blinds are quite easy to clean. All you need to do is wipe them once a week, much like you would wipe regular blinds. Every few weeks, you can give them a deeper clean, but they require no more maintenance than regular shades.


My Windows Are Too Big for Motorized Shades

Customized shades can be made for any size of window. Some are even able to be covered by ready-made window coverings. Simply talk to your custom shade designer to discuss the particulars of your project. There are no limits to what you can do!


Motorized Blinds Are Unsafe for Children and Pets

Motorized blinds are safer for pets than corded window treatments. Cords pose a choking risk to children and pets, and it is difficult to protect them from being tangled in them. Motorized blinds don’t require any cords at all, so your loved ones can play near them without any worry.


Motorized blinds are too expensive.

Motorized window treatments come in a variety of price ranges. If you would like to splurge, you can install blinds made out of wood. But if you are looking for something more affordable, there are a variety of more budget-friendly materials. Faux wood blinds and aluminum blinds are both excellent options for the more cost-conscious.
