Motorized window covering in Fort Lauderdale, FL is easy and convenient. They allow homeowners to adjust blinds and shades with just a push of a button and are especially useful if there are large amounts of windows or hard to reach windows in the home. But not all motorized window coverings are created equal.
Roller shades are simple and budget friendly. They are fabric or vinyl window coverings that roll down from the top of the window to provide light control and privacy. These are perhaps the most popular motorized window covering. They have almost limitless customizations because of the large range of configuration options because they are lightweight and versatile. You could cover almost any window with a motorized roller shade.
These are similar to roller shades but specifically provide UV protection. The woven design of these window coverings works to prevent heat transfer, fading, and glare. And also like roller shades, you can get almost any configuration because solar shades are so lightweight and versatile.
Cellular shades are best for insulation. The cellular shape traps air and works to reduce heat transfer. These are a great option for windows that tend to collect a lot of late, afternoon sunshine. These window coverings are also compatible with motorization, but the options are not as extensive as with other shades.
Woven Wood Shades
Woven wood shades are great if you like to work with simple, natural materials. These window coverings can be motorized, but again, not in the same way roller shades can be. The main difference is because of weight and you cannot motorize all sizes of wood shades. They are inherently heavier so wider installations cannot be motorized.
Drapes are fabric window coverings that move back and forth on a rod or a track. They are adjustable so you can get the right amount o light and privacy when you need it. Most homeowners don’t realize they can motorize drapes as well. So if you have a floor to ceiling window, you might consider this as an option.
Blinds are a window covering that does it all. You can tilt slats for light and privacy control. You can also pull the blinds up and completely out of the way. It is no wonder they are also one of the most popular window treatment options on the market. Blinds are also compatible with motorization. And depending on your needs you can choose specifications that allow you full control over the blind, or only tilts the slats.
