When it comes to home automation, the world has made a lot of advancements. There are robots that vacuum our floors, cars that drive themselves, and you can control your blinds or drapes with the click of a button. Are you considering motorized shades or blinds for your home? To help you make an informed decision, here are the top 3 benefits of having motorized blinds and drapes in Edmonton!

1. Convenience

While there are definitely more laborious tasks than drawing the drapes, the most alluring feature of motorized blinds and drapes has to be convenience! Motorizing your window treatments allows you to cross a repetitive task off your to-do list forever. This really comes in handy if you have large windows or high ceilings that make your window treatments hard to reach.

2. Safety

From vacuum cleaners to kettles, devices that are cordless have a major selling point over their competitors. Cordless devices are cleaner, smarter, and safer. To a child or pet, the cord used to operate traditional blinds and shades may seem like a fun, dangly toy but it can be a choking hazard. Our motorized blinds and drapes are cord and chain free so they are safe for all members of your family — even the four-legged ones! You can attach a timer to your window treatments, which can deter burglars from targeting your home if you are going to be away for a few days or weeks. It is also convenient if you have house plants.

3. Efficiency

Did you know that you can save on your energy bill with motorized blinds and drapes? Your blinds or drapes do much more than just allow light to enter a room. Instead of expensive air-conditioning, you can draw the shades when the sun is peaking in the summer and naturally cool your home during the hottest parts of the day. Doing the opposite in the winter, allows you to leverage the heat of the sun to warm your home. But blind and drapery motorization is also about maximizing as much space in your home as possible. Imagine turning your living room into a home theatre during the day? Or automating your bedroom blinds to slowly let the sun wake you up in the morning?

All of this and more can be done at the touch of a button. Contact Linh’s Window Fashions in Edmonton to learn more about the amazing benefits of motorizing your blinds and drapes.
