Should you motorise your blinds?

There is no denying it. Motorised blinds are fantastic. Who wouldn’t want to just sit back and let things be done for you with less effort and hassle. the only thing is… they come with a price tag. So are they with it?

Motorizing your blinds can offer several benefits, depending on your needs and preferences. Here are some reasons why you may want to consider motorising them no matter the cost.

1. Convenience:

Motorized blinds can be controlled with a remote or even your smartphone, making it easier to open and close your blinds from anywhere in the room. This can be especially convenient for hard-to-reach windows or for those with mobility issues. You can also open more than one blind at a time, saving you the effort of having to manually open each one.

2. Energy Efficiency:

Motorized blinds can be programmed to open and close automatically based on the time of day or the amount of sunlight in the room. This can help regulate the temperature and reduce energy costs by blocking out the sun’s heat during the summer and allowing it in during the winter. Opting for Battery or Solar powered motorization can also cut down your power bill so it won’t add an extra cost from what the manual option would.

3. Safety:

Motorized blinds eliminate the need for cords, which can be a safety hazard for young children and pets. This can give you peace of mind knowing that your home is a safer environment.

4. Aesthetics:

Motorized blinds offer a sleek and modern look, as they do not have cords or chains hanging down. This can enhance the overall appearance of your windows and complement your interior decor. sometimes this is the only option when cords may interfere with open doors or potentially blow in the wind.

5. Security:

Motorized blinds can be programmed to open and close even when you are away from home, creating the illusion that someone is still inside. This can deter potential burglars and improve your home security.

Given the above list, the extra cost on the blinds price tag makes absolute sense and all of a sudden does not seem that much.
