The kids have just left home, and we are redecorating their rooms. I'm finally going to get the home office that I've always wanted, and my husband is going to get a sewing room. It's an amazing feeling to be entering into this new stage of our life. We need to redecorate the rooms a fair bit - as I don't think that anyone is going to take me seriously on work video conferencing calls in a black walled room with rock posters behind me! This blog is all about redecorating your empty nest so that you can make the most of your extra space.
Curtains have been a staple window furnishing for homes for a very long time. Not only do blinds provide your windows with added insulation, you also get the choice of controlling the amount of light that penetrates into your home. If you are looking for modern features in your stylish blinds, you should consider motorisation. Below are some of the benefits of motorised blinds.
Motorised blinds provide you with convenience
If you have numerous windows in your home, you may find the process of having to draw and open your blinds quite tedious. Moreover, it also takes up a lot of time which you could spend doing something productive or relaxing. If you would like an added sense of convenience in your home, you should consider motorised blinds. With a simple touch of a button, you can open and close your blinds from wherever you are sitting. You can even have the automation programmed to open and close all the blinds in your home simultaneously meaning you do not even have to walk around with the remote control. Lastly, you could choose to program the blinds to open and close at a designated times of the day so you would not have to bother with them at all.
Motorised blinds provide you with increased options for placement
If you have varying sizes of windows in your home, you may find that you are limited to the type of window furnishings to install simply due to accessibility. For instance, high windows will not be easy to reach thus you may forgo installing anything around them. On the other hand, large windows with heavy curtains can be difficult to open and close, which may limit your fabric options. If you would like freedom and flexibility when it comes to window furnishings, you should opt for motorised blinds. Since these can be operated with a touch of a button, you can choose to install them anywhere around your home.
Motorised blinds provide you with enhanced accessibility
Accessibility may not seem a factor to consider for people who are mobile and in good health. However, opening and closing window furnishings may prove increasingly difficult for those who have limited mobility or movement. If you are caring for a senior loved one or someone else who finds it hard to deal with opening and closing window furnishings, motorised blinds would be ideal to make their life somewhat easier.
