There are few technology additions you can make to your Baton Rouge, LA home that will have a bigger immediate impact than motorized shades. In previous blogs, we’ve showcased how motorized shades help you conserve energy, streamline your daily routines, and protect your family’s privacy. Despite their benefits, it’s not always easy to figure out how to choose the right ones your space.

Unfortunately, many motorized shades on the market offer limited features and models. Some have the opposite problem—they advertise so many features that it’s hard to know which you need. To make things easier, we’ve highlighted some characteristics to look for when installing motorized shades. If you still have questions once you’re done reading, one of our shading experts can advise you on the ideal solution for your space.

Enjoy Control Just the Way You Want it

The primary benefit of motorized shades is not having to rely on wands or cords to manage them. Though some low-end models just offer remote control, industry experts like Lutron provide a wide range of control options. It’s your choice to pull shades up and down using mobile apps, dedicated touchpads, elegant keypads or even voice commands. Or automate changes entirely using scheduled scenes that open shades at a given time each morning and close them when it’s time for bed. Use photo sensors that close blinds when a window is hit by direct sunlight to eliminate glare and heat gain.

Choose the Perfect Match for Your Décor

Relish in the benefits of motorized shades without sacrificing your décor with Lutron’s wide range of models and fabrics. Entry-level solutions usually only offer roller shades in a handful of colors. Revamp your lifestyle and décor with honeycomb shades, drapes, blinds, and more. All models come with custom color-matching options to ensure they fit seamlessly with the rest of your interior design.

Incorporate Wireless Solutions When Needed       

Not as flashy but just as important is figuring out if you want to go with wired or wireless shading. Even though wireless options are cheaper and easier to install, wired installations will always be more reliable. Not only are they easier to maintain—with no battery replacements needed—but they typically also include a wider range of model and control options.

However, there may be times when wireless options are the best option—especially if you’re adding shades to an existing space. Cutting down walls to integrate wiring is costly and invasive. Some windows may also be hard to reach with wires so a wireless option may be the only feasible solution. Add Lutron’s wireless Sivoia models which include drapes, shades and blinds.

Avoid Disruptions with Silent Motors

Do you worry about motorized shades disrupting a movie or waking up the kids? Use motorized shades throughout the house at any time of day without having to worry about noisy motors. All Lutron wired and wireless shading models offer ultra-quiet motors. Have a stop at our brand-new experience center to hear them for yourself!

Get a Uniform Look with Hembar Alignment  

Nothing will ruin your home’s immaculate décor more than uneven shades. Alignment is vital to keep the room from looking messy and unkempt. Manual and entry-level options make it hard to get all shades to open to the same level. Lutron shades include Intelligent Hembar Alignment, which ensures all shades maintain alignment within 1/8″ while moving or at rest. Shades will line up perfectly throughout the house to create a seamless, uniform look.
