The Many Benefits of Motorized Blinds

Motorized blinds are a product of innovation that seeks to preserve a sense of style. While you may think of clunky, loud, and fussy blinds when you hear the word “motorized,” in reality, this is far from the truth. Contemporary motorized blinds come in an array of styles, including wood, faux wood, and aluminum styles designed to suit a variety of interior decor tastes. Whether you prefer minimalistic, mid-century, modern, chic, or rustic decor, you’re sure to find motorized blinds that will blend seamlessly into your home. At Visual Creations, we love helping our customers discover the potential in decorating their homes in beautiful window fashions that not only look great but add value to their homes. This month, we’re unpacking just a few of the many benefits of choosing motorized blinds powered by the award-winning PowerView® Automation system from Hunter Douglas.

Improved Security

A home that appears active works to deter possible break-ins, which can be difficult when you’re away from home most of the day. Motorized blinds let you not only program custom lighting schedules, but also give you the power to adjust your blinds during any time of the day no matter where you are, putting your home’s lighting always within reach.

UV Protection & Privacy

Motorized blinds keep your home protected from prolonged sunlight exposure and harmful UV rays that can lead to cancer and damage your furniture over time. Easily adjust your blinds from anywhere in your home with the touch of a button on your Pebble® remote, or with the convenient PowerView® smartphone app. Hunter Douglas blinds boast improved view-throughs compared to typical blinds, which means you can enjoy full natural light without having to completely raise your blinds.

Energy Efficiency

Untreated windows can be responsible for up to 30% of your home’s lost energy, which quickly adds up to more expensive heating and cooling bills. Enjoy cooler summers and warmer winters with protective motorized blinds, like the Modern Precious Metals® Aluminum Blinds. Metal blinds offer the highest degrees of heat and light control thanks to naturally reflective material that keeps out excessive sunlight. PowerView® Automation allows you to program custom schedules for your blinds, so you can keep your home shaded even while you’re away. PowerView® even syncs with your local sunrise and sunset times for adaptive lighting that makes keeping your home protected during the sunniest times of day a cinch.

Expressive Style

Our Hunter Douglas blinds come in several materials, including both sleek aluminum styles, classic hardwood, and innovative alternative wood styles. Regardless of which style you choose, you’ll enjoy premium build and quality, including de-Light™ construction designed to eliminate cord holes that otherwise let excessive sunlight leak through. Choose from an array of colors, including paints and stains as well as the option between metallic, pearlescent, and matte hues.
