‚Äč5 Reasons Your Home Needs Motorized Blinds

Imagine waking up in the morning to the sun streaming in at just the right time, rather than the incessant beeping of your alarm clock. Imagine feeling completely at ease knowing that your pet or young one is safe from the harm posed by the cords that hang from blinds. At Mayfair Drapery & Rug Company, we can fulfill these desires with custom motorized blinds. Read on to learn more about how you can benefit from motorized blinds.


What are motorized blinds?

As the name suggests, these window coverings are motorized. They can be hard-wired directly into your home's circuitry, powered by a battery or even run on solar power. Some blinds lift all the way up, while others tilt to let some natural light in, but still give you privacy in your Toronto-area home. Whichever type you choose, motorized blinds are easy to operate with the push of a button.

Why should you choose motorized blinds?

Custom motorized blinds offer many benefits to Toronto homeowners, including:


1. Safety: The cords on traditional blinds can be choking or strangling hazards for toddlers and pets. Motorized shades, on the other hand, have no cords, so your family is less at risk.

2. Savings: Motorized window coverings can help save you money on your heating and cooling bills. You can program custom motorized blinds to open and close depending on the amount of light and the season. In the summer, you can have them automatically close when the sun is at its strongest to keep out the heat. In winter, leave them open during the day to let the warm sun flood in.

3. Practicality: Motorized blinds are ideal if you have high ceilings, hard to reach windows or skylights. You will be able to open and close your blinds with just the click of a button.

4. Ease of use: Because motorized blinds can be opened, closed, raised and lowered with such ease, they are the perfect solution for seniors and those with reduced mobility.

5. Security: With programmable motorized blinds, people won't be able to tell if you're away from home for an extended period of time. When you leave for vacation, you can program your shades to open and close during the day, making it look like someone is home.


It doesn't matter who you are or what kind of home you live in, motorized window blinds can benefit you and your family.
