Shades in Every Room
Every room in your home has unique lighting needs at different times of the day. With automated shading, you will have the power to manage those needs with minimal effort. Plus, they provide a cleaner look than traditional shades, since they don’t have manual controls dangling at the side. Here are a few examples of how you could use your shades in specific spaces.
- Living Room: Maybe you love sitting in your living room every morning with your coffee and enjoying your beach view. However, you don’t love sunlight damaging your furniture or artwork while you’re at work. Simply design a weekday schedule that opens up the living room shades at the time of your alarm and closes the shades when it’s time to leave. Then, you can worry about other things, knowing your shades are in the perfect position.
- Bedroom: Natural light is proven to help wake you up in the morning. Make your sleep smarter by connecting your bedroom shades to a natural clock that monitors when the sun rises and sets. Wake up with the sunlight, but then know that your privacy is protected when it gets darker in the evening.
- Home Theater: Maybe you have a home theaterin a room that has a few windows. Create that pure cinema feel by adding blackout shades. You can even program these shades to descend when the movie begins.
These are just a few of spaces where motorized shades can enhance your lifestyle. When you work with an integrator, like Audio One, you can develop a plan ideal for every room.
