Does Your Home Need Motorized Blinds or Shades?

Motorized window treatments are the kind of décor item that seems almost unnecessarily advanced. It calls to mind things like The Jetsons, or movies and TV shows set in the future. But is that really an accurate representation of what having motorized window treatments is like, and the kind of people that use them? At Imperial Blind & Shutter of Venice, FL, we think not: to us, motorized window treatments are a great choice for any homeowner. Don’t believe us? Let us tell you a little more about them and what they can do for your home.


Perhaps the most obvious benefit of motorized blinds and shades is the convenience factor. No one likes having to adjust their window treatments fifty times a day as the sun moves through the sky, so why not get rid of that hassle altogether? With motorized window treatments from Hunter Douglas, you can adjust your window treatments from the comfort of your couch, your bed, or your kitchen table without having to disrupt your daily activities or stop the flow of conversation.


You may not think of motorized shades and blinds being safer than normal window treatments, but they do actually get rid of something that could pose a threat to your family and the structure of your home: cords. While Hunter Douglas does offer options that can hide the cords of your blinds or shades, motorization gets rid of them altogether. If you have ever raised a toddler or a kitten then you know exactly how appealing a set of blind cords can be, and how easily that can result in disaster. With motorization, you can get rid of those cords once and for all and keep your family (and your window treatments) safe.

Energy efficiency

Not only will this make your home more comfortable, but it will also save you money on your energy bills, as you will have to spend less money on cooling your home.
