Harness Natural Light at Home with These Ideas
It’sno secret that we've all been spending much more time at home. The pandemic will end, but it has undoubtedly brought about lifestyle changes that will likely endure into the future. Some of those include continued work from home as technology allows for efficient communication and collaboration, distance learning that may provide a way to reduce the high cost of college, and more ways to stay fit, healthy, and entertained at home.
What do these trends have to do with motorized shades? More than you might think. Motorized window treatments are an increasingly popular option in both new and existing homes in Dunwoody, GA, and the metro Atlanta area. Beyond the sheer convenience, let’s explore how they can help you make the best of your time at home, no matter the activity.
Lutron’s Motorized Shades Give You the Power of Choice
Have we convinced you to make the leap to motorized shades? If you haven’t, you may want to take a closer look at all the benefits they can bring to your Buckhead home. We at GHT Group think that motorized shades are one of the best innovations since sliced bread. Perhaps we jest a bit, but truthfully, automated shades are one of the best smart technology investments you can make for your home.
The reasons are straightforward. First, automated shades are an incredible time-saving convenience. You can block the hot sun's rays in the late afternoon. You can protect your artwork, furnishings, and rugs from UV damage. And you can wake up to sunlight in your bedroom, all without lifting a finger.
Beyond that, motorized shades can help you become a better steward of the environment. Blocking out summer heat at peak times will make your HVAC system breather easier and save on energy costs. In the winter, shading material can serve as another insulating barrier, also saving on heating costs. If you integrate your automated shades with smart home control systems like Control4 or Crestron, your shades can team up with intelligent lighting and climate control for a complete energy-efficient system.
Have we convinced you yet? Hopefully, we have, but you will still have a decision to make beyond the plethora of styles available for your motorized shades. Read on to see more.
