4 Reasons to Outfit Your Home with Custom Motorized Shades

Beautiful Window Treatments Are Just the Start

4 Reasons to Outfit Your Home with Custom Motorized Shades

Unlike other state monikers that might leave you puzzled, the Sunshine State aptly fits Florida. The Rosemary Beach and Panhandle area average over 220 sunny days a year, and that doesn’t even count those days when it rains in the afternoon. All that sun makes for a wonderful climate and outdoor lifestyle, but it can also be hard on your home’s interior.

Most homes in the area employ some type of custom window treatments for all the usual reasons – privacy, light control, and more. But did you know that adding power to your window treatments can let you easily control the Florida sun inside your home? Discover four reasons how custom motorized shades protect and enhance your Rosemary Beach home.

Saving Energy

When the sun streams in through your windows, your interior can heat up fast. Air conditioning is a must in Florida, and it’s working all year round. Motorized shades can be strategic about managing sunlight without your intervention. Put them on a schedule to lower after you wake to keep bedrooms cool. In living areas, open up your shades for light on the opposite side of the sun. In the evening, shield a room or side of the house from a Western sun until sunset, then open up and enjoy the view with the touch of a button. Your energy bills will reward you with savings from your air conditioning.


Harness and Control Light

Use less artificial light and get the energizing effects of the sun indoors. Your motorized shades can raise or lower precisely to let just the right amount of light into any area of your home. For additional control, add your powered window treatments to a smart home automation system, and you can raise and lower shades on a schedule, based on lights sensors, or an overall scene you can program with your lighting. Shade fabrics with different levels of transparency make it even easier to manage light no matter the sun exposure.


Protect Your Furnishings

Too much light can wreak havoc on your interiors. UV light can damage furniture, wood flooring, carpet, upholstery, and artwork. With motorized shades, you can control how much light exposure any part of your home gets every day to balance the light with potential overexposure. And when the shades are lowered, you can use translucent fabrics to manage how much light comes through so that you don’t feel like you’re living in a cave.


Privacy and Security

If your Rosemary Beach abode is a second home, you likely want to provide the illusion that your home is always occupied. You can control motorized shades remotely from anywhere with your smartphone, so you can raise and lower shades to give your home a lived-in look. For less work, automate those sequences with smart automation that combines your lights and shades to give the appearance of occupancy day or night. For privacy when you’re home, program your shades to automatically lower in bedrooms and living areas when you’re ready to turn in for the night. All it takes is the flick of a button, a voice command, or a schedule of your making.
