Got a Window that’s



Got a Skylight that’s




Let a Motorization Expert Help You!

Recognized for many years as an Expert Somfy® Dealer, Drapes’n Shades was one of the original companies to offer Motorization as an affordable option to the general public. It's one of many reasons why interior designers, builders and architects consult with us regularly to effectively integrate Motorization and Smart-Home Technology into their design plans.  This means you can also move forward with confidence knowing the expert technicians from Drapes’n Shades have all the up-to-date training and experience you would expect from a company that specializes in motorized custom-made window coverings.

So Why Motorize?

What was once thought to be reserved only for the rich and famous is now quite affordable and easily accessible to everyone for many reasons, such as:

CONVENIENCE     Motorization lets you enjoy the convenience of adjusting the positioning of your window coverings with the touch of a button on a hand-held remote, smartphone or notebook, or by way of a timer responding to a pre-set schedule. And this can be really helpful if you have Skylights or several hard-to-reach locations (like the one over the kitchen sink or high up on the wall of a 2nd-floor  stairway landing). And of course, who wants to crawl out of a nice warm bed in the morning and start fumbling with drapery cords etc.? Now, that’s convenient!

SECURITY     A very effective way to secure your premises when nobody's home at night is to make it appear as if sombody is - like using timers to 'instruct' a few lights go off and on at certain times. During daylight hours, when you're away at work, motorization will let you easily program all your drapes and shades to open and close several times a day - this will send a similar "someone's home' message to deflect anyone checking out your neighborhood. 

CHILD & PET SAFETY     The last thing you need on your mind every time your back is turned, is the thought of curious little hands and paws 'getting into trouble' playing and getting tangled up with unsightly strings or cords. Motorization will help to protect your loved ones and make the environment safer for all concerned, while also achieving a clean look of cord-free elegance.

DESIGN ELEGANCE     Talk about civilized! Having the experts from Drapes ‘n Shades motorize your new and existing window coverings will create a very elegant and sophisticated way to raise your home’s interior style to the next level. Especially with draperies, Motorization will make all those unsightly, tangled cords and wands become but a distant memory – you’ll wonder what took you so long!

ENERGY SAVINGS     You can reduce your energy costs depending on the time of day or direction the sun is shining. Drapes’n Shades will show you how simple it is to set your drapes, shades and blinds to open or close using either a timer or solar sensitivity. And when your shades are lowered at the right time, your living space will always be more comfortable and your AC won’t have to continuously work overtime competing with the sun’s non-stop intensity.

FURNITURE PROTECTION      Blocking bright sunlight from freely pouring through your windows all day can prevent harmful UV rays from damaging and fading your textiles, artwork, carpets and other interior furnishings. Plus, you'll save a bundle on wasteful energy expenses while maintaining a cooler and comfortable living space.
