Are Wireless Shades the Best Option for Your Home?

Very few technology upgrades are as simple and rewarding as adding motorized shades to your home. Even just adding a few throughout the house will reduce your monthly energy bills, make your TV sessions more enjoyable and enhance your family’s privacy. Not only that, but motorized shades reduce clutter by eliminating the need for cords and wands to manage them.

If not installed correctly, though, motorized shades can bring some dangerous clutter of their own. Once you add the shades, you need to power them, which in a worst-case-scenario means messy wires running from the window to the nearest outlet. 

Wireless battery-operated shades offer one excellent alternative for a more streamlined installation. You can also go with professionally installed hard-wired solutions with wires hidden behind walls. Once you read this blog outlining the pros and cons of each option, you’ll be able to gauge which is the best one for your Atlanta, GA home.

Roller Shades

Roller shades are by far the most common motorized shades installation. Different color and fabric options let you customize them according to both your preferred style and their overall application.

Go with sheer shades to protect your space from UV rays while enjoying the view. Opt for blackout shades in home theaters or bedrooms to keep all light from coming in. Dim-out shades offer a little more privacy than sheer ones but still provide some inside lighting.
