If you’ve been considering motorised blinds for your windows, there are many reasons why motorised blinds just make sense for the home. Some homeowners wonder if the investment in motorised blinds is worth it, but when you consider all their benefits, you can see why installing them is a serious upgrade for your home, style, and comfort. Some of the many benefits of motorised blinds include the following:
Life outside your home is difficult, stressful, and uncomfortable. Life inside your home should be the complete opposite. Home is your sanctuary where you can relax, unwind, and recharge. But it’s challenging to do that when you have to climb around furniture to drop the blinds at night or deal with cords that can break, leaving you with no way to raise or lower the blinds. With motorised blinds, it’s effortless to raise and lower them so that you can let in more light or shut out the world at the end of the day.
If you have kids or pets, motorised blinds are a safety game changer. The long cords that most blinds have are an accident waiting to happen for pets and kids. Every year there are injuries and deaths of kids and pets who get tangled in those cords. If you want to prioritize safety and still have blinds with style, motorised blinds are the way to go. They look beautiful, and they are safe for kids and pets.
Motorised blinds are also easier for seniors and people with physical challenges who don’t have the grip strength to pull on cords or move wands. If your senior parents are aging in place or you have physical mobility challenges, motorised blinds are a great option.
Motorised blinds are smart home compatible, so you can control your blinds the same way you control the other smart devices in your home. You can raise the blinds with the touch of a button or a voice command from the bed and close them the same way. Never again will you have to get out of bed to close the blinds if you forgot them before bed. And if you aren’t home and want to close the blinds for safety, you can do that the same way you turn on your smart lights or answer your smart doorbell.
Closing blinds on a hot summer day can improve your home's energy efficiency. So you can open them on a sunny but cold day. By controlling the blinds with the touch of a button, you can use them as a tool to improve your home's energy efficiency and save money.
