Your window treatments say a lot about your home and sense of style. Window treatments like honeycomb shades and privacy sheers truly tie rooms together, giving it sense of drama and allure. And much like your light switches and air conditioner thermostat, your window treatments are most likely adjusted often to block or let in light, setting the mood for the space they’re in. Unfortunately, adjusting several sets of blinds or shades can be time consuming, and it can be quite difficult to get the lighting just right based on the position of the sun.

Your window treatments are meant to be an enjoyment, not a headache. Luckily, there’s an easy way to get the most out of your window treatments without needing a sundial and SPF lotion: motorized window treatments, also known as modern window treatments.

Window treatments have been used by the earliest human civilizations, which span thousands of years. Since then, the only thing about them that has changed has been trends and styles, so you can imagine how groundbreaking motorized window treatments are.

Motorized window treatments allow you to use a remote control to adjust almost any kind of window treatment, like shades, blinds and sheers.  The remote control activates a motor attached to the window treatments that adjusts them in their respective ways (e.g. tilting blinds and closing sheers). The remote provides incredible control of your window treatments, and it even allows you to control several window coverings simultaneously!

Best yet, motorized window treatments do not require extensive modifications to your home or windows during installation. An AC or battery-powered transformer is connected to an infrared receiver that receives commands from the remote control and sends them to the motor.

If you’ve been thinking about updating your home’s window treatments, maybe it’s time to motorize.
