Automated window treatment adds a bevy of value to your home including reduced wear and tear on the artwork, furniture, and floors in your home. Looking at the difference in the two pictures below you can see the difference when the shades are open or closed.

1. Roller Shades

Roller shades are the most common motorized window treatment that we install. Roller shades with Lutron create the perfect light for your space. Having fabric options that can either be sheer, dimming, or complete blackout allows homeowners a wide array of options. In master bedrooms or other high-use rooms, we often install double shades where 1 shade will be sheer or dimming to allow some sunlight and view, and the other is a blackout shade to eliminate sunlight completely.

2. Roman Shades

Roman shades give you the advantage of using your own material, while still reaping the benefits of Lutron technology. The bold look of Roman shades can make them a focal point of a room. This style gives you a lot of flexibility not only in fabric options, but also in the number of pleats you want.

3. Drapery Systems

Drapery systems come in multiple, track options, pleat styles, and draw styles.  Draperies are great at insulating your room whether you’re trying to keep your house cool in the summer or warm in the winter they provide more r-value than shades and blinds. Lutron’s motorized drapery system comes with a manual open feature in case of a power loss. Available in runs up to 30 feet long and configured either straight, curved, or multi-bend tracks gives you versatility with your automated window treatment selection.

4. Horizontal Sheer Blinds

Horizontal sheer blinds are available in light-filtering and room-darkening options with either 2″ or 3″ vanes. The soft elegance of a sheer with the precise light control of a blind gives you control of the light in your home. Automated opening and closing of the vanes provide the perfect amount of filtered sunlight.
