Intelligent Shades for Your Home
Whether you are tired of constantly getting up to adjust the blinds to avoid glare on your TV or have windows that are too high to reach, managing the sunlight and your shades can be inconvenient. Motorized shades streamline and automate this process, making it easier for your family to adjust how much light enters your home, which can impact the temperature of each room as well. Motorized coverings can also protect your furniture and artwork from the harsh rays of the sun or adjust automatically to keep the morning sun from waking you up, and all of it can be easily controlled with a smart phone, keypad, or voice control. Our team at Automated Lifestyles are happy to show you a wide assortment of designs and materials to fit your home.
Roller Shades are ideal for a clean flat look. They are available in widths up to 14 feet to meet the requirements of any project. Combine transparent fabric for glare control and blackout fabric for home privacy in the same window by choosing our convenient dual-roll configurations.
Our beautiful roller shades are also available in manual control versions, providing you with additional flexibility to maximize your budget.
Honeycomb Cellular Shades
Honeycomb cellular shades are the most budget-friendly. Their R-value (or, their ability to insulate against heat flow) is greater than a typical double-pane window. Light filtering and blackout are available depending on the needs of the room. Integrating your motorized shades with your home automation system allows you to control your natural lighting. Start your morning with your shades raised. In the evening, shades automatically close for privacy without your interaction. Now that’s smart!
Drapery Track Systems control pinch pleat and ripple fold styles on straight tracks using drapery motors. Custom bends and curved drapery tracks are also available for spaces with special design requirements. Standard drapery tracks require space for fabric to stack back on one or both sides.
An industry first, the Kirbé vertical drapery system smoothly pulls fabric up and completely out of the way — unlike traditional draperies that move from side-to-side. This unique design provides greater access to windows and views by eliminating the creation of stack back.
Horizontal Sheer Blinds
Sheer layers combined with fabric vanes provide the perfect blend of filtered sunlight inside a space and view to the outside, while maximizing the control of both. Sheer layers also offer privacy, even when vanes are open. Fabric-wrapped fascia gives the option of matching the top treatment to the blind, or a custom cornice can be installed to finish the look.
Cordless roman shades offer the feel of drapes but with the versatility and functionality of traditional roller shades. Install fabric romans to give your home a modern feel but with a traditional warmth. Since these are truly custom coverings geared toward your style, both Lutron and Crestron only provide motorized shade kits (your seamstress provides the fabric).
Wood blinds transform a space into a warm, earthy retreat. Basswood is available in natural stains and painted finishes, covering windows up to 108” wide and 120” tall. Motorized tilt & lift allows you to easily control the daylight as well as the view!
Tensioned Skylight Shades
Tensioned shades provide solutions for skylights and angled windows. The innovative design from Lutron keeps fabric panels taut and parallel to windows with minimal sag at a variety of slopes. Lutron tensioned shades reduce light gaps around fabric, and maximize the view when opened by eliminating cable guides that are typical in skylight shades. The frame may be surface mounted, inside mounted, or recessed into a pocket while still allowing easy access to update the fabric.
