Automation is becoming increasingly more popular for Saskatchewan homeowners. From home security systems to lighting control to lawn irrigation systems, HVAC systems and appliances, there are so many ways to make your smart. Window treatments are no different. You probably already know window coverings can block light, add privacy and can add a touch of luxury to any room. But in today's world, having attractive window treatments that just open and close doesn't cut it. This is where motorized window treatments come in! Motorized window blinds, shades and drapes have all the benefits of traditional window treatments but with added functions and convenience that make them a valuable addition to your home. But what are these benefits? The experts at the Blinds Collective Design Studio are here to tell you! In this blog, we'll cover the top 5 benefits of motorized window treatments for your home! Read on to learn more!
Motorized Window Treatments are Safe for Children and Pets
As a parent, you know how important it is to keep your children safe. When it comes to your children's safety, motorized window coverings will give you peace of mind. Traditional window coverings with cords can be a serious safety hazard for young children and pets. Cords can become a suffocation hazard if children get tangled in them, especially window treatments with a continuous cord loop. Pets may also be at risk of injury from corded window coverings, similar to young children. Motorized window treatments are cordless, making them one of the safest window covering options for both parents and pet owners. Motorized window treatments are ideal for any room in your home that children or pets can access. By installing motorized window treatments from The Blinds Collective Design studio, you will never have to worry about the safety hazards that come with corded blinds and shades.
Increase Your Home's Energy-Efficiency
Motorized window treatments can help increase your home's energy efficiency in two ways! They can help with both insulation and light control. Motorized window coverings offer excellent control over lighting in your home. With motorized window treatments, you can open your shades, drapes or blinds all the way to let in as much natural light as possible. This will allow you to turn off lamps and other lighting fixtures, which will save you energy. You can also set your window coverings to open and close during specific times to maximize light control and efficiency. Window treatments are also a great way to control how much warm and cool air enters and escapes your home through the windows. By taking advantage of automated window treatments, it will be that much easier to ensure your home is at the proper temperature all year. These benefits will work together and help you lower your monthly energy bill.
Add Security When You Are Away from Home
When you think of your home's security and window treatments, you might think it only relates to closing your blinds, shades or drapes to prevent people passing by from looking in. While this is true, motorized window treatments offer far more in terms of security than just keeping your shades, blinds, or curtains closed. Because motorized window coverings can operate automatically during the day, they can make it appear as if someone is home, even if you are hundreds of kilometres away. Motorized window treatments can act as more of a deterrent to potential burglars and thieves than traditional window coverings, especially when they are paired with an automated home lighting system.
Improve Sleep Quality and Help You Wake Up Naturally
We all know how frustrating it is trying to fall asleep in a room that isn't dark enough or being rudely awakened by your alarm clock. Installing motorized window treatments in your bedroom can help eliminate these issues. By choosing motorized window coverings with the maximum light-blocking ability (like black-out curtains) will help your bedroom be as dark as possible and improve your quality of sleep. This is achievable with traditional black-out curtains or shades, but without motorization, you could miss out on an opportunity to wake up peacefully each morning. Programming your motorized window treatments to open gradually in the morning with the sunrise will help you wake up more slowly and naturally. Everyone in your household can benefit from waking up peacefully, including your children, which is another great reason that motorized window coverings are a perfect choice for bedrooms.
Increase the Value of Your Home
Motorized window treatments from The Blinds Collective Design Studio are custom-made to fit your windows perfectly and installed professionally. This can add instant value to your home. If you are considering selling, potential buyers will easily notice the difference between professionally installed window treatments and store-bought window coverings. This will make potential buyers more attracted to your house. Smart home automation is also becoming more popular, and motorized window coverings are a growing trend. If your home is outfitted with motorized window treatments, potential buyers will see it as a huge bonus. While motorized window coverings may not add a huge dollar amount to the value of your home, they will make your home stand out to potential buyers and increase the chance of a sale.
