Motorized Shades: The Perfect Blend of Functionality and Aesthetics

Natural light provides the foundation for the ambient light that gently illuminates your home. It brings warmth and reveals the textures and truest colors within your home’s many fabrics and furnishings. Bringing daylight indoors also enhances well-being, increases concentration, improves moods, and reduces stress. 

As you can imagine, managing this all-important element is essential to maintaining a healthier home and elevating your home’s design.

Motorized shades offer the most convenient and efficient method for controlling and utilizing this dynamic lighting. The perfect addition to luxury living, you manage the amount of sunlight in your home with the touch of a button or voice command. Your shades can also manage it for you, automatically adjusting throughout the day, filtering the sun’s harsh rays while letting in diffuse illumination. 

Are you ready for the perfect blend of functionality and aesthetics in your Long Island, NY, home? Let’s explore the many features found in today’s automated window coverings.

Unmatched Functionality

With the press of a button, you can shape the light for any activity. Our expert designers and integrators program your shades to raise and lower based on the time of day, temperature, and the sun’s position. For instance, in the morning, they open as the sun edges over the horizon. West-facing shades rise at sunset while the remaining window coverings close for privacy.

Automated scheduling and the use of sensors also reduce energy usage. In winter, the shades open along the southern façade, bringing in the warmth of sunlight. In the summer, these shades lower, blocking solar heat gain.

Elevating Your Home’s Aesthetics

At Home Theater of Long Island, we partner with Lutron, the leader in lighting control. In addition to eight unique styles, including Palladiom roller shades, draperies, and horizontal sheer blinds, they also collaborate with leading textile manufacturers worldwide. 

With over 1,000 selections, the ideal window covering exists for every room in your home, even hard-to-reach architectural windows and skylights. When operating, innovative technology enables the shades to align precisely within 1/16 inch of each other, creating a stunning look along adjacent windows.

Trending Window Treatments

As with all home designs, what’s in fashion in window treatments varies yearly. In 2024, sustainability and eco-friendly elements are a high priority. Lutron fulfills this demand with honeycomb cellular shades that trap air in distinct pockets, providing insulation and lowering energy consumption. They also offer a vast selection of sustainable roller shade fabrics.

Layered window treatments incorporating varying textures, colors, and patterns are also in vogue, adding personality and dimension. Sheer shades combine well with elegant draperies. These shades are also ideal for the growing minimalist trend, creating a soft and sleek touch. 

Roman shades are also fashionable this year. Lutron allows for the ultimate customization in these shades, letting you use your material and select the number of pleats.
