What Kind of Motorized Shades Should You Install?


Usually, when people think of motorized shades, they're envisioning traditional roller shades. Despite the name, though, smart shading solutions from Lutron include a wide variety of models, fabrics, and designs, including popular drapes and blinds. All models offer control from the device of your choice, hem alignment, and ultra-quiet motor technology. Lutron’s Sivoia QS comes with the options outlined below. Once you get a better understanding of what you can add, it’ll be easier to find the ideal solutions for your Alpharetta, 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.

Since Lutron allows for dual tracks, you can even incorporate multiple roller shades within one window. Let light into your bedroom during the day with an elegant sheer variety, then switch over to blackout shades when it’s time to call it a night.


Common in living rooms and bedrooms, drapes are a striking accent point for your interior décor. At the same time, their heavy fabrics sometimes make them hard to manage manually. Simplify your day-to-day chores by upgrading to motorized varieties you control from a mobile app, remote, or keypad.

Enjoy a variety of fabric options—with custom color matching to fit your space—and choose between Lutron's two drape systems. Drapes can run along a traditional horizontal track in either a pleat or ripplefold formation. On the other hand, Lutron’s Kirbé vertical drapery system pulls the fabric up and completely out of the way, opening up your space and view when the drapes are open.   

Wooden Blinds

A lot of our clients like incorporating wooden blinds in their kitchens and dining rooms. Designs from Lutron are available in different colors, finishes, valance styles, and operating tapes. Each blind allows for tilt and lift adjustment with intelligent tilt alignment across adjacent windows. Enjoy the perfect lighting and feel every time by saving your favorite settings into scenes you can pull up at the press of a button. Preset settings will automatically adjust the blinds to the ideal height and tilt angle.

Pleated Shades

Pleated shades are a simple addition to give a spark to any interior décor. Find the ideal fashion-forward fabric with Lutron’s Coulisse Collection, which includes Bold, Elegance, Impact, and Tranquil lines. Add a powerful finish with bold colors for your headrail and bottom bar. Like with roller shades, translucent and sheer fabric options are available as well. Lower and raise evenly through Lutron's expert alignment using remote controls or elegant Touch QS keypads.

Untap the full potential of motorized shades by choosing the ideal model for each room in your home. Set up a one-on-one consultation in which we'll guide you on the perfect models, fabrics, colors, and control options. To get started, give us a call at (770) 258-6614 or fill out our contact form.
