Benefits Of Motorized Blinds The Benefits of Motorized Blinds for Your Home

One of the hottest trends in home automation and smart integration are motorized, automated, remote-control blinds. While they may seem like an innocuous upgrade, motorized blinds offer a wealth of benefits that make them one of the best home improvement investments you can make.

At Southwest Blinds & Shutters, we’re passionate about window treatments and have been helping homeowners throughout the Southwest region with custom designs and installation for over 18 years. We’ve seen firsthand the benefits motorized blinds and other window treatments bring homeowners, so you can trust our expertise when it comes to these innovative products.

Why You Should Choose Motorized Blinds

There are many reasons to choose motorized blinds for your home which is why they’re an upgrade that works well for so many people. No matter what you’re looking for from your window treatments, motorized blinds can provide it. Some of the reasons that homeowners love motorized blinds include:


The most obvious answer is still a good one. Motorized blinds are undeniably more convenient than their traditional cousins. You can make large or small adjustments with the push of a button from almost anywhere. Smart home integration even lets you control your blinds with voice commands for the ultimate convenience.

Custom Designs

Why settle for off-the-shelf blinds? Motorized blinds from Southwest Blinds & Shutters are completely customizable, so you can select their material options and design to give your home a custom interior design touch. Select from popular materials like wood, faux-wood, and aluminum.

Thermal Performance

Most homeowners know that their windows are a major source of energy loss, but few consider how much their window treatments can affect their window’s thermal performance. Keeping your blinds closed at the right time can have dramatic effects on your home’s energy efficiency, and motorization helps make that a cinch. Set your blinds to a schedule for even more convenience.


Improving your home security with automated or motorized blinds is simple. When your blinds are motorized or set to a schedule, they’ll open and close whether you’re home or not. This simple solution will fool any onlookers into thinking that someone is indoors, even while you’re enjoying a vacation or at the office.

Light Control

Motorized blinds make fine-tuning the light levels in any room easy since you can make large and small adjustments at the push of a button. Plus, with motorized blinds you can make adjustments without having to get up. That’s really handy when you’re watching a movie and want to eliminate a glare, or you’re reading a book and want just the right amount of light over your shoulder.


Sadly, the dangling cords of traditional blinds present a very real hazard to children and small pets. Motorized blinds completely eliminate this worry, with no loose cords or other choking hazards that other window treatments have.

If you’re interested in motorized blinds, it’s important to choose a trustworthy design and installation team. At Southwest Blinds & Shutters, not only do we stand behind our work, but we also want homeowners to have total peace of mind, which is why we stand behind our craftsmanship with lifetime warranties.

Blinds look awesome! The install was quick and lacked any drama. Just like I want. :-) We will definitely be buying from them again once we redo a couple areas in the house first.

They did a great job installing my shutters. Very polite and went the extra mile to do some minor adjustments that I requested. He identified a couple of things that were incorrect on my order and made sure new items were ordered. He came back to reinstall the corrected pieces and did a great job.

The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.

James was doing a job across the street and we asked him to come over for an estimate. We hired on the spot and were genuinely pleased with the quality and service we received. He worked fast and clean and on time. Very pleased with the outcome.
