Benefits of Motorized Blinds & Shades

What could be better than controlling your window treatments with the touch of a button? At Rainey’s Decorating Center in Arlington, Illinois, we couldn’t think of an easier option. No more having to constantly fuss with your blinds and shades to get the perfect amount of lighting in your home. The job is done simply with the touch of a single button. However, simplicity isn’t the only benefit of motorized blinds and shades. We want to give you everything you need to know about the benefits motorized blinds and shades have to offer you.

Motorized Blinds & Shades

It’s no secret that adding motorized window treatments to your home increases your home’s value as well as its comfort. Since we live in such a hi-tech and digitally driven world, houses with these features tend to be more desirable when you eventually put your home on the market. Not only will they make your life easier while you’re living in your home, but they’ll also give you a little extra chunk of change when you go to sell. It’s a win-win!

PowerView® Motorization

At Rainey’s Decorating Center, we proudly carry Hunter Douglas products. Hunter Douglas supplies the award-winning motorized window treatment operating system called PowerView® Motorization. This system comes with many features and benefits. In fact, with this operating system you can set your shades to open and close at certain times of the day, so you don’t even have to think about it! If you’re not a morning person, or you work from home, this is a great feature. Set your window treatments to rise when you need to get up so that you’ll wake up peacefully with the sun. It’s also a good motivator to get out of bed and not fall back asleep! The Powerview® system can be operated simply with the touch of a button on the Pebble Remote Control, with the Pebble Scene Controller or on your smartphone or tablet with the Powerview® App. This allows you to set the mood in each of your rooms by selecting different combinations of shades and shade positions. This is great for watching TV or a movie during the daytime. After all, no one likes a giant glare on your TV screen! Now, fixing and fussing with your blinds and shades are a thing of the past. If you’ve ever struggled with adjusting window treatments that are either too high, or are in hard-to-reach areas, then this option is perfect for you. You no longer have to grapple for cords on your tiptoes. Simply press a button and voila! You have your window treatments perfectly adjusted.
