Nowadays inventions are all becoming high-technology. If you can turn on and off appliances, televisions, computers, and light switches all from one place in your home, why not be able to operate your window coverings the same way?
Everything is becoming as smart as Alexa or Siri. There is such a thing as smart homes and it’s becoming a reality for more and more homeowners. These smart homes could be partially or fully automated – controlled by computers, machines, and remotes are within reach for many families. Everything from refrigerators and dishwashers to thermostats and window coverings is programmable or capable of being operated from afar.
One of the window coverings that has that capability is what we call MOTORIZED SHADES.
Here are just a few reason why you will love MOTORIZED SHADES:
1. They are just as effective at saving energy as they are at preserving your privacy because when the shades are down on a sunny day – solar gain is minimized, which means your home’s AC can operate more efficiently and when shades are up, you can keep the room’s lights off – relying on the natural light.
2. They can help protect a home from break-ins as it gives it ”lived-in” look – an effective detergent against burglars.
3. They look better than manual shades and drapes because they lift, lower, and traverse left and right without any tugging of a cord necessary. So modern and clean!
4. They are available in a variety of fabrics. Infact there’s no shortage of selection when it comes to choosing a fabric to attach to the motorized hardware. One of the first things we, at Couvrant, shows you during in-home consultation and yes, it’s for free! All you have to do is to schedule an appointment with us and we will bring you the fabric samples. That’s easy!
5. They can be customized to fit all shapes and sizes of windows . You know, rectangular windows could now be a little boring especially now that windows have transitioned from different kinds of odd shapes such as trapezoid, circle, and even arches and angles. One of the benefits you get when you let a professional do your coverings – just like Couvrant – we customize all coverings including motorized shades.
6. They can be powered by AC or batteries and you know that having these two options work well and is very helpful.
7. They are safer, especially for your kids and pets. Even your own hands can get tangled up in the pull cords of a manual drapery. We can prevent it by going with a motorized solution.
These are just a few reasons why it’s a must to have this window covering and it’s never too late! Go get your appointment with us now by dropping your information below or call us at (202) 350-0047.
