When you are in the market for a new home, you are looking for a space you can make your own. A house that fits your needs and that can be molded to fit your personality. This is especially true if you are building your own home. Cozy spaces and unique features might be your priority, or maybe it’s functionality and modern design. But one universal priority for all homeowners is optimizing natural light and lighting. This is why integrating motorized shades into your lighting control design can improve the look and feel of your Franklin, TN home.
Home automation is all about convenience, and few things spell convenience better than motorized shades integrated into your lighting control system. This is a huge benefit for those of us with accessibility issues as well. Having motorized shades gives you control over your home’s daylight. Even without accessibility issues, window treatments can be a hassle, which is why having motorized shades that do not require manual adjustment can improve the frequency of use and your overall comfort.
Windows play a big role in home design, and window coverings are a big part of that when it comes to the interior look of a home. Custom-built homes especially can have window sizes and shapes can vary from standard builds that create a certain look but can be difficult to access. Window shades come in all sorts of designs and colors, and can really add to a space, but still need to be functional as part of the lighting design.
Custom motorized shades give you the ability to adjust those hard-to-reach blinds in high or odd spaces that otherwise might rarely be moved. And the best part is that you can do it all from your home automation interface on your phone or device.
Windows can be a beautiful feature of your home, but the downside is the heat gains and losses and resulting energy expenditure. Finding the right formula so that solar gain is optimized for each space is a critical element of lighting design. And this can get tricky the more rooms a home has.
But with motorized blinds, you can control and schedule individual motorized shades to optimize daylight and reduce energy. They work by trapping incoming light outside before it turns to heat, reducing the strain on your HVAC system. In the colder months, you can depend on your shades to keep cold air out and isolate heat to indoor spaces.
Just access the lighting controls on your home automation system interface and adjust them to your preference. The best part is, you can schedule them to open and close at certain times of day to meet energy efficiency goals and comfort levels so you can spend more time enjoying your home.
