Let a Motorization Expert Help You!

Recognized for many years as an Expert Somfy® Dealer, Drapes’n Shades was one of the first 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.  And like them, 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 treatments.

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 adjust the positioning of your window coverings with the touch of a button on a hand-held remote, smartphone or notebook, or automatically from 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     The most effective way to secure your premises when you’re out for the evening is to make it appear as if someone’s home, like setting a few lights to go on and off with a timer. During the day, when you're away at work, your motorized drapes and shades can be programmed to open and close several times a day, to send the same message to any undesireables that may be checking out your neighborhood.

CHILD SAFETY     An added measure of safety in the home means not having to worry about the little ones 'getting into trouble' playing and getting tangled up with unsightly cords etc.

DESIGN ELEGANCE     Having the experts from Drapes ‘n Shades install motorized window coverings will give you 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 can show you how to set your drapes, shades and blinds to open or close using either a timer or solar sensitivity. And with your shades lowered at the right time, your living space will always be more comfortable because your AC won’t be working overtime to compete 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 on wasteful energy expenses while maintaining a cooler and more liveable living space.
