We’ve been in the window treatment business for over 13 years now and from our experience the best investment you can make with your blinds is to add motorisation. Gone are the days of manually adjusting blinds; now, with the touch of your smart phone or a remote, you can effortlessly control the amount of natural light entering your home.
Motorised blinds have the potential to streamline your busy routines, making life easier by adding more functionality to your living spaces. If you like the idea of an extra helping hand to open and close your blinds each day, or you just love anything that will enhance your day-to-day lifestyle, you’ll love reading our five reasons why it’s time to switch to motorised blinds.
For Kiwis with hard-to-reach windows or for those with mobility challenges, motorised blinds are even more valuable, due to their effortless operation.
With just the click of a button you can adjust your blinds to the perfect position, at any time of the day without needing to lay a hand on them.
The second reason why it’s time to switch to motorised blinds is to increase the safety of your little ones or pets.
Corded blinds can pose a safety risk, especially in homes with toddlers or young children. Motorised blinds eliminate the need for cords, reducing the potential for accidents. This feature means you can have peace of mind, creating a safe environment without sacrificing style or functionality.
Motorised blinds can be programmed to open and close at specific times of the day, optimising natural light levels and helping with temperature regulation. During the summer, they can be set to close during the hottest parts of the day, helping to keep your home cooler, protecting your furnishings from fading or sun damage and of course, reducing the need for air conditioning. In the winter, they can open to let in sunlight, naturally warming your space and reducing heating costs.
The fourth reason why it’s time to switch to motorised blinds is because you are after a higher level of home privacy and security. With complete control over the adjustment of your blinds, you can easily adjust them to prevent prying eyes from peering into your home. Additionally, if you have a smart home system or even just a smart phone, you can head off on holiday and adjust your blinds from almost anywhere in the world!
Recently moved into a new home or have newly renovated? With motorised blinds there is no compromising between style or function. Our motorised blinds come in a wide range of styles, fabrics, and finishes, allowing you to find the perfect match for your home’s decor.
