Protection Against the Harmful Sun

Now that the summer is approaching, the sun’s UV rays will be stronger than ever. While this is great if you want to tan or spend time at the pool, overexposure can be detrimental to your home’s interior, causing significant damage to furniture, artwork, floors, and other household items. UV rays can fade colors, weaken fabrics, and cause materials to deteriorate over time. 

Fortunately, motorized shades can be programmed to adjust automatically throughout the day, blocking intense sunlight during peak hours. This can help you preserve the quality and lifespan of leather furniture, wooden floors, and delicate artworks that are particularly susceptible to sun damage, ensuring they remain vibrant and in good condition for years to come.

Protection from Intense Temperatures

Texas summers are known for being quite extreme, but with smart shades, your home can become the perfect retreat any time a heat wave threatens your comfort. Motorized shades can significantly reduce heat gain by blocking direct sunlight. This is a great way to keep your indoor temperatures cooler, which reduces the need for air conditioning, saving you hundreds of dollars in energy bills. Plus, preventing excessive heat from entering your home is a great way to create a more comfortable living environment, allowing you to enjoy every area of your home, even during scorching afternoons.

During the winter, motorized shades can also be your best friend when tackling low temperatures. When closed, they help retain the warmth inside your home, enhancing the efficiency of your heating system and keeping your home cozy no matter the weather outside.

Protection from Prying Eyes

Enjoying privacy plays a huge role in making you feel comfortable and at peace in your own home. Our luxury window treatments are a perfect addition to spaces where privacy is needed just as much as natural sunlight, such as bedrooms, home offices, and bathrooms. 

During the day, you can tap a button on your smartphone and adjust the shades to the perfect position, letting in natural light while still enjoying a degree of privacy. Smart blinds can also be programmed to lower automatically in the evening or when you’re not at home, preventing outsiders from peering into your living spaces.
