WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH MOTORIZED WINDOW SHADES?
Your Guide to Automated Window Treatments for Your Southwest Florida Home
You may think the purpose of window shades is simple: to affect the amount of sunlight that comes into your home. That is what they do, but they also offer much more for your home and day-to-day lifestyle.
With the Southwest Florida summer coming up, you’ll want shades to bring lovely sunlight into your home but also help keep it cool. Did you also know they can protect your furniture and artwork? Here’s what you can do with motorized window shades and why they’re beneficial for you, your family, your Naples home, and your belongings.
ENJOY PLEASING LIGHT
Having natural sunlight in your home is great, but sometimes the sun’s rays can bring a harsh glare to your home’s interior. That no longer has to be a worry with motorized shades. You can use shades to transform intense glare into soft pleasing light. This is helpful for watching content on your TV and doing work on your computer — you won’t have to fret about glare affecting your displays.
PROTECT CARPETING, FURNITURE, AND ARTWORK
Although many of us love a nice sunlit room, too much sun can damage carpeting, furniture, and artwork. UV rays can cause chemical breakdowns in furniture and fabric dyes, and fade and discolor wood. It can also change the color of your favorite works of art. Motorized shades can come to the rescue and help block the sun from impacting your home’s interior.
SAVE ON ENERGY BILLS
The upcoming summer months in Southwest Florida will surely come with high temperatures. A way to make your home more comfortable with the heat is motorized window shades. You can install shades that reduce the heat entering your home, thus lowering the amount of work your air conditioner has to do to keep everything cool.
CONTROL WITH SMART TECHNOLOGY
Smart technology makes managing your motorized window shades a breeze. You can connect them to your smartphone and raise and lower them with a press of a button, or control them with voice commands. Another convenient option is setting specific times for them to raise every morning and lower every night automatically.
You can also program your shades to automatically lower when your windows heat up so that your home can stay a comfortable temperature. Also, being able to quickly lower shades for privacy from your phone is a great perk. You can say goodbye to the days of having to go up to each window and wrestle with cords.
