Mythbusting: Dispelling 3 Popular Myths About Custom Window Treatments
Get the Real Scoop on Motorized Window Treatments
No matter how many blogs we write about motorized custom window treatments (go ahead and read them all; we'll wait), some people still cling to certain misconceptions about them. We're here to bust those myths once and for all – or at least we'll try.
The truth is, motorized window shades and treatments have hit the mainstream. But if anything is still holding you back from taking the plunge into this ultra-convenient smart home technology for your Metro Atlanta home, we hope this blog, er, pushes you over the edge. Let's bust these myths now – please read on!
Myth 1: Only Certain Windows Need Apply
This might be one of the most popular myths. You’ll be happy to know that custom motorized window treatments present equal opportunities for many windows. Motorized treatments can fit angled and horizontal windows, skylights, window walls, and bay windows. As these solutions are custom, you’ll be surprised at how many windows you can treat to the luxury of motors and automation.
Myth 2: You Can Have Any Style You Want, As Long They’re Roller Shades
This is so wrong; we don't even know where to start on this one. OK, we do. How do you feel about honeycomb shades, Romans (shades, not the empire), shutters, vertical blinds, drapes (vertical and horizontal), and wood and metal blinds? How about cable-guided shades that don't flap in breezes? Have we struck a nerve yet? Add to that a plethora of fabrics, colors, and light filtering levels, and you'll be amazed at what you can do with motorized window treatments.
Myth 3: Yeah, But They Only Work Indoors
OK, this might be true for certain manufacturers. You got us on that one. But did you know outdoor motorized shades are a real thing? Specialized vendors like TerraVue create outdoor shade solutions to turn patios into more comfortable oases. You can filter the hot sun, seal off outside spaces from insect invasions, and create a cozier environment when the weather turns cooler. Pair outdoor shades with home automation (the same way you can with indoor shades), and you can master your outdoor atmosphere with lighting, audio, fan and heat control, and more.
