What happens with technology meets interior design? Automatic window shades can be practical and functional, but they can also be fun!
Automatic window shades are adjusted with the touch of a button. They are useful because shades can be adjusted even in hard to reach places, large shades are easily opened and closed and privacy can be attained quickly. These automatic shades are operated with remote controls, wall switches or even timers. Here are some cool things you can do with automatic window shades in your home.
1. Cover Window Arches – You know those beautiful arches in your windows? The ones way up high that give the room an elegant look. How annoying is it when the sun hits just the right spot and blinds you in your family room or heats up the whole room because you just can’t cover it? Installing automatic window shades on these hard to reach arches is the answer to your dilemma. Just flip a switch to open or close. It’s that easy!
2. Install Timers or Sun Sensors – Timers and sun sensors are a very cool addition to automatic shades. Timers are great if you know exactly when you want the shades opened or closed. For example maybe you want to keep people from being able to look in when you’re out of town or you like to sleep with the windows covered but you want the sun to shine in when your alarm goes off. Just set the timer and it will all happen automatically. Sun sensors are brilliant. Do you have a couch that suffers from overexposure? Protect your furniture and manage your heating/cooling costs by installing a sun sensor to pull the shades for you. You don’t even have to be home.
3. Get the app! – Believe it or not, some automatic window shades can be controlled from your smartphone. Just download the app and follow the instructions. No matter where you are you can open or close your window shades just by taping the screen.
If you don’t already have automatic window shades, you may want to consider an upgrade. They’re smart, practical and honestly, fun to play with. Whether you’re showing off your fancy windows or just trying to get some shut-eye, you’ll be glad that you installed window coverings that do what you want with the touch of a button.
