A Buyer’s Guide to Motorized Window Treatments


There is a wide variety of window treatments with cordless options, but why stop there? Make your home work for you with motorized window treatments. Not only will your space be stylish and tidy but you can control natural light and privacy in your home at the touch of a button. Motorized solutions can be paired with horizontal blinds, roller shades, cellular shades, and even classic shutters!

Although the benefits of motorized window treatments are innumerable, here are a few of our favorites:

  • Motorization decreases the wear on your blinds—no uneven pulling or hurried tugging on the lift mechanisms when you’re in a hurry or your hands are full.
  • It allows you to lower your shades with ease, via the push of a button, remote control, or even a programmed schedule, so you don’t have to do anything at all.
  • Motorized window coverings can be connected to the smartphone and smart home technology that you already use in your daily life.

Motorized Faux Wood Shutters & Shades Solving Issues from Humidity to Sticky Fingers

Kitchens are where the family gathers. Keeping all the surfaces clean is a monumental task, and you’ll want to select window treatments that are easy to lift and close, durable, and resistant to frequent temperature changes. Bathrooms and laundry rooms usually have more moisture than other spaces in the home, so you’ll want a window treatment that can endure high humidity in these spaces.

Bearing in mind the unique needs of bathroom and kitchens, composite faux wood shutters or blinds can be an excellent solution for your space. Not only do these window treatments have the classic appeal of wood, but the composite material makes them very light-weight, durable, and resistant to humidity. They can be conveniently motorized and are available in a wide range of color schemes to coordinate with your home décor. Wall switches with push buttons can be wired into your home for spaces where you know you will always want privacy at your fingertips.
