You’re redecorating or have just recently moved home. This means looking at your window treatments and considering a change. Lorton motorized blinds are becoming popular and certainly offer a range of benefits. The question you’re wondering is: do you really need them? Are they really that beneficial for your exact needs?

Here’s a look at considerations you’ll need to make. Answers to the considerations will help you determine if motorized blinds in Lorton are worth your while.

How Convenient Are Your Current Blinds?

When you’re in the middle of watching your favorite show, how often does the light on the TV bother you? Many people find they need to close the blinds to block the glare, so they can see everything on the screen. That means pausing the TV (if you have TiVO or the ability to pause live TV) and getting up to close your blinds.

On top of that, your blinds could be in awkward positions. You have to reach over countertops or around furniture to get to the cords. The blinds just aren’t that convenient at all.

Lorton motorized blinds have the ability to control from where you’re sitting. With a push of a button you can open and close to your heart’s content. There’s no need to worry about missing that important moment in your favorite show. You also get to close as many or as few in a room as you want, managing your light with ease.

Are You Fed Up of Moving Rooms for All Blinds?

Once you’ve closed one set of blinds, you have to move to other rooms to manage them. More often than not, some rooms are forgotten about. You can’t be bothered reaching over the countertops in the kitchen to close the blinds. The last thing you want to do is close and open the blinds in the spare room on a daily basis.

The same applies if you have curtains and shutters. You can’t be bothered working your way around the room. It’s not laziness that stops you. The opening and closing of every blind is time consuming. But you want to make sure privacy in all rooms are protected and your heating bills in each of the rooms remain low.

Motorized blinds in Lorton will give you the benefit of managing all blinds from one room. You can have all the blinds connected to the same remote. This allows you to close them in every room at the same time without having to move from the comfort of your couch.

Do You Want Easy Cordless Options?

Cordless blinds are definitely superior to the corded options. They’re safer for the family, as there’s nothing for small necks and limbs to accidentally get caught in. The problem with cordless blinds is reaching for them.

You have to get over countertops or around furniture. Then you need to make sure they clip in place properly. There’s a fear that the blinds will unclip and snap back up, potentially causing injury to people in the room.

Motorized blinds will help you get around this situation. The blinds are completely cordless for safety, but you don’t have to get up to use them. The remote control will make sure they pull down and remain in place until you’re ready to use the motor to open them again.

Before you start looking into motorized blinds in Lorton, make sure they will work for your exact needs. Consider everything wrong or right with your current window treatments to see if motorized options are superior.
