Nobody likes manually adjusting their blinds throughout the day but letting in or blocking natural light can have a significant effect on the ambiance of your space. Motorized window treatments remove this burden by allowing you to open or close every shade in your home with just the tap of a button. If you are considering adding this convenient solution to your home, it is important that you do your research to be fully informed. Don’t believe these three myths about motorized blinds when deciding to install them in your home in Camano Island, WA or surrounding areas.
Window treatments should show off your personal style and blend in seamlessly with your interior design. Homeowners might think that motorized blinds will distract from the aesthetic of their home, but there is no need to worry. Automated window treatments come in several styles and colors. Screen Innovations has thousands of shade fabrics to choose from. Sunscreen fabrics are transparent screen fabrics that filter incoming light and reduce exposure to UV rays and heat. Light filtering fabrics reduce heat and UV rays but allow diffused light in for limited visibility. Finally, blackout window treatments completely stop sunlight from penetrating your home.
Motorized shades might be more expensive than standard window treatments, but they are a good return on your investment because they provide energy savings. When you schedule your shades to close during the hottest parts of the day, you can stop heat from coming into your home and lessen the burden on your HVAC system. You can even utilize temperature sensors to further the efficiency of your climate control. Once your home's temperature reaches a certain level, your shades will close instead of turning on your air conditioner to cool the house.
Summer is here, and homeowners are spending more time outside under the sun. If you and your family enjoy relaxing on the porch but have to plan around the hottest times of the day, consider installing automated window treatments in your outdoor spaces for added comfort and temperature control. Keep out intense sunlight and pesky bugs without obstructing the view of your backyard, and protect your patio furniture from UV rays, especially if you are located on the west-facing island that gets a lot of sun. Screen Innovations offers sleek and intuitive outdoor window treatments for any application. Choose from several styles and colors to find the perfect design that complements your exterior.
