Motorized Window Shades

The Motorization of Window Treatments for Out of Reach Windows

Picture Perfect Window Coverings Has Your Out of Reach Windows Covered

As window treatment options became modernized, we were introduced to the concept of motorization for adjusting, opening, and closing our window shades. Now, as the cost of motors is on the decline, clients are again considering the motorization of window treatments. This is especially true for tall and large windows that are too high to reach.

By motorizing the treatments on these larger, higher windows, we can control sun glare, increase privacy, and preserve views without the need for ladders or contraptions to reach treatments. These windows are often a focal point in the home, showcasing a beautiful view or bringing in optimal lighting. Motorization allows clients to have options, no longer requiring them to keep the windows uncovered.

The window covering design team at Picture Perfect Window Coverings can provide several options for motorized window treatments. See what we can do to improve the view and functionality of your hard-to-reach windows.

Motorized Treatment Options

There are several options for motorized window coverings, allowing you the freedom of choosing the look you want without sacrificing the mobility the motor provides. We can help you with design features, colors, and technical decision-making so that you get what you need and what you want.

You can choose from the following motorized window shade options:

  • Roller Shades: Roller shades have a vast range of configuration that offers virtually limitless customization. Customized roller shades can be motorized using low voltage DC motors or 110V AC motors. They can be powered by batteries, solar kits, rechargeable battery packs, plug-in transformers, or hard-wired.
  • Woven Wood Shades: Wooden shades can be motorized and like roller shades, the configuration can be customized in a wide variety of ways. Wood shades can be motorized using low voltage DC motors or 110V AC motors. They can be powered by batteries, solar kits, rechargeable battery packs, plug-in transformers, or hard-wired. The exception to this easy motorization of wood shades is for especially wide windows.
  • Cellular Shades: Cellular shades are compatible with motorization, but the range of motor options is not as extensive as with roller shades or woven wood shades.
  • Transitional Shades: Transitional shares are available with motorization. They can be motorized using low voltage DC motors and can be powered by batteries, solar kits, rechargeable battery packs, or plug-in transformers.
  • Sheer Horizontals: Sheer horizontals offer the same range of motorization as transitional shades. If you are going for the wow factor, motorized sheer horizontals are hard to beat.
  • Horizontal Blinds: Horizontal blinds are compatible with motorization, but only for the tilt adjustment. Motorization of these blinds does not lift or lower the blinds.
  • Plantation Shutters: Plantation shutters are one kind of window covering that we do not recommend motorizing. Because plantation shutters require a motor inserted into the frame of the shutter, motorization can compromise the integrity of the frame, make installation difficult, and threaten the longevity of the shutter. Simply put, it is not a good idea to motorize plantation shutters if you want a long-lasting window covering.

All motorized options are compatible with a variety of control options. You may control the shade motorization via a Wi-Fi bridge which allows smartphone control, indoor sun sensor, or time sensor.
