Find the Style and Control Options That Fit Your Texas Lifestyle
Motorized shades can serve a variety of purposes. They can cool down your home, protect your family's privacy or enhance your favorite entertainment. When choosing your style and control options, you need to take into account your shades' primary purpose. As you read this blog, you'll learn about some of the most popular motorized shades in the industry and their typical control solutions so you can figure out what would work best in your Sugar Land or Houston home.
Since they come in a variety of sizes, colors, and designs, honeycomb shades are one of the most popular models when it comes to motorized shades. Standalone or combined with elegant drapes or blackout shades, they offer great versatility and can also enhance your energy efficiency. This is because honeycomb shades are specifically designed to regulate temperature through the use of air pockets built into their fabric. They can be used to insulate the home or cool it down in the summer.
- Ideal Control Solution: You can link honeycomb shades to photo sensors, so they lower whenever the sunlight is strongest. Otherwise, you can schedule them to go up or down corresponding to the coldest or hottest times of the day.
Roller shades are ideal for managing the amount of light in your home and protecting your family’s privacy. Sheer and dim-out fabrics let you block UV rays (and those looking in) while still letting you enjoy a view of the outdoors. If you want to eliminate external light entirely, opt for blackout shades ideal for bedrooms or media rooms.
- Ideal Control Solution: You can manage shades from a remote, touchpad or smartphone. Schedule sheer or dim-out shades to close when you’re at work to protect your home’s privacy and blackout shades to stay closed overnight and into the morning to create the perfect sleeping environment.
Old-fashioned drapes can also benefit from smart shading solutions. Often many homeowners are reluctant to incorporate drapes in their décor since they can be a hassle to open and close. Don’t settle for using drapes on smaller windows or going with lighter fabrics. Now you can manage them from the device of your choice.
- Ideal Control Solutions: We recommend leaving drapes open throughout the day to enhance your interior décor. Schedule them to close around 7 p.m. every evening then open them up the following morning. If you’re sitting down to watch a movie, you can use a touchpad or smartphone to close them to get rid of unwanted ambient lighting.
