Different Things You Can Do With Motorized Blinds

Motorized window coverings are the wave of the future. Many homeowners are choosing to install motorized blinds in their new homes. People are also opting to install them in their current homes during an upgrade. 

So, what makes custom motorized blinds special? What sets them apart from traditional window blinds? Why have they become a growing trend?

Let’s unpack a few key components that make motorized window blinds the optimal solution for your home. 

Install Your Blinds in High Places 

Perhaps the most convenient thing you can do with high-tech window coverings is install them in tall windows and operate them with a smart phone app.

This advantage is an afterthought for a lot of people, but it’s crucial and it makes so much sense! 

No More Ladders 

There are so many homes with beautiful high ceilings and windows. These lovely large windows let in tons of light to illuminate your living space.

However, beauty is pain, and it’s definitely painful to get out a ladder every time you want to open or shut the high-up blinds in your home. 

No More Damages

Motorized blinds take away that struggle for homeowners completely. Gone are the days when you scratched your floor, dinged your walls, and indented your carpet with a ladder. 

No More Safety Hazards

It also saves you the anxiety of worrying about your loved one getting injured or injuring yourself. It’s dangerous to be that high up.

With motorized blinds, you simply click a button and the shades go up and down to your liking. You can do it while sitting on the couch, or in bed, or at the kitchen table. It doesn’t matter. What matters is you never have to worry about hauling a ladder inside just to open a shade ever again. 

Link Your Blinds to Smart Home Technology

Another awesome thing you can do with motorized blinds is to link them with smart home technology for ease of use and versatility. 

With smart home integration, some motorized blinds are controlled with your mobile phone, and others are controlled by a remote. Overall, automation can promote ease of use and less stress. 

Streamlined Process

You don’t need to struggle with every single blind to get it to the height you want. You don’t have to deal with uneven strings or stubborn curtain rods. And you don’t have to wrestle with lifting heavy blinds. You can close multiple blinds at once with ease.

If you are an individual with limited mobility, motorized blinds might be a great option since you have smartphone or remote control options. 


Motorized blinds and shades are extremely convenient. You save so much time since you don’t have to run around the house to close blinds on separate windows. With the push of a button, all of your blinds or shades can close at the same time. This is great for home security and for when you’re tired and want to get to sleep.

Likewise, when you wake in the morning, you can open them all at the same time to let the morning sun pour into your room.


With remote-controlled blinds, you can sit on your couch under a cozy blanket, hit the button to shut the shades and block out the world around you on a windy day. Or, you can let all the light in on a perfect summer afternoon.

You can even set your motorized blinds to open with the sunrise and close with the sunset. How cool is that?! 

Okay, you get it. Motorized window treatments are really nice to have. 

Bonus: Luxury

Motorized blinds have a sleek design. They add a luxurious feel to your home. And let’s be real, who doesn’t want nice things?

Automate Your Blinds for Energy Efficiency 

Installing electric blinds doesn’t just save time, it saves money on energy bills as well. Smart home technology enables users to operate their homes efficiently by controlling sunlight and temperature. 

Let the Light In

Automatic shades allow you the flexibility to control how much light gets in your home when you’re trying not to use your lightbulbs and lamps so much.

Are Motorized Blinds Really that Different? 

Motorized shades outperform traditional window treatments in so many ways. They are designed to be more functional for the homeowner and you can do so much more with them. 

In addition to installing them on your high-up windows, you can also sync them up with smart home technology, and use them to save money on your energy bill. All these reasons, plus the fact that they are convenient and add a lovely aesthetic to your home, make motorized blinds worth it.
