How Custom Motorized Shades Solve Common Interior Design Issues
Enjoy a Beautiful, Functional Space with a Bespoke Solution
Designers know how important window treatments are in completing a home’s look. A stellar window treatment can serve as the final glue that brings the space’s décor together or be a stylistic accent that stands out from its surroundings. In some cases, though, traditional blinds, shades and drapes are hard to implement into your décor or can’t quite meet your needs.
In those cases, custom motorized shades often save the day. They offer more versatile, intuitive and proactive control options perfect for addressing many common interior design issues in Alys Beach, FL homes. This blog outlines some common design issues and the ways these custom shading solutions can help. Have any others top of mind? You can always reach out to our team to find out if we have a product that can help.
Blocking Windows With Furniture
Do you have certain furniture you'd like to place against a window? Do you worry this will make shades or blinds on those windows unmanageable? By integrating motorized window treatments, you don't have to worry about hard-to-access wands or cords. Control Lutron shades, drapes or blinds using elegant on-wall keypads, handheld remotes, touchpads, or an app on your phone.
Finding Solutions for Large Doors and Windows
Large windows and doorways are making a comeback in high-end homes. Unfortunately, these have always presented a big challenge for traditional window treatments. Aside from necessitating custom fabric selections and sizes, they are tough to manage using conventional manual controls. Not only are cords or wands hard to reach, but fabrics may become too heavy for young or elderly family members. The control options outlined above make a huge difference, allowing family members to manage these window treatments in the way that best suits them.
Exposing Your Furnishings to Sunlight
There are some furnishings and decorations you must be particularly careful about placing near windows. Sunlight can damage luxury furnishings, antiques and artworks. Our custom window treatments make it easy to keep those damaging UV rays away. Opt for shades that use photo sensors to automatically lower when sunlight hits them directly. That way, you'll be able to keep these vulnerable items closer to windows and expand your interior décor options.
Avoiding an Unbalanced Exterior or Interior
One thing that can quickly ruin an interior design is inconsistency. The most beautiful shades will look disjointed if they’re opened at different positions. Hembar alignment technology from Lutron resolves this common design issue. Any shades you group together will stay within 1/8” inch of each other while moving or stopped to protect the uniform look you’ve worked so hard to cultivate.
Finding Options That Fit Your Lifestyle
Even as you focus on solving all the design issues above, you don’t want to ignore functionality. Do you need a pitch-black environment to sleep soundly? Does direct sunlight hit your media room during certain times? Questions like these will help determine what fabric or openness factors make the most sense based on the amount of the sun you want to keep out. Our partners at Lutron and Crestron offer a wide range of colors, fabrics and openness factors to find the perfect product that matches both your lifestyle and décor perfectly.
