Don’t Believe These 3 Myths About Motorized Blinds


Enhance Your Home with the Convenience and Beauty of Motorized Window Treatments

No one enjoys wrestling with a cord to open and close their window shades. What if you could control all the window treatments in your Overland Park, KS home with just the push of a button? Automated window treatments make control of your shades a breeze. There are a lot of misconceptions out there about this revolutionary technology. Read our blog to learn three common myths about motorized blinds.



Motorized Shades Are Loud.

No one wants to hear a roaring motor when they need to open or close their shades. One would think that motorized window treatments are noisy and disruptive. Thankfully, the quality motorized shades that we install for our clients pass the "whisper test." This means that even if you are speaking at a level of a whisper when you open the shades, you will still be able to be heard. With automated window treatments, control of your shades will be almost silent and completely convenient.

Motorized Shades Ruin Your Décor.

Most homeowners are sensitive about the décor of their home, with good reason! After all, a cohesive aesthetic shows off your sense of style. A common misconception is that motorized shades only come in a limited selection of colors and materials. Luckily, this is not the case. Motorized window treatments can enhance your style, not detract from it. Choose from a variety of colors and styles that blend in seamlessly with the design of your home. In-wall control keypads also are available in a wide selection of styles and finishes.

Motorized Shades Are Expensive.

Home automation has become increasingly popular in the past several years, which has brought down the price of motorized shades and made them more accessible to a wider range of consumers. Motorized blinds and shades don’t have to be significantly more expensive than regular window treatments. They can even save you money in the long run. When paired with a home automation system, motorized shades can save you energy by blocking out or letting in sunlight at peak times—without you having to lift a finger. For example, you can schedule your shades to lift in the morning to take advantage of natural light but lower in the afternoon in rooms that face the sun so that you can give your HVAC system a break. You’ll reduce your electricity bill and enjoy hands-off control.
