But with so many potential upgrades you can make to your home—from AV to security, lighting and more—shouldn’t shades stay at the bottom of the list? Absolutely not! In this blog, we offer a short guide to the reasons you want to invest in motorized shades for your Aspen home today. Keep reading to learn more.
Smart Shades Bring the Room Together
There’s no denying it; from a design standpoint, smart shading is a must-have. A room without window treatments can offer a harsh environment, particularly for the aesthetically inclined. But that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with a single design. There are plenty of options available, from full curtains to virtually invisible sun shades and more. If you’re interested in bringing your décor together with a great addition to your smart home system, motorized shades are the place to start.
Motorized Shades are Perfect for Winter
Want to reduce energy costs this winter? The easiest way to do that is to turn off the heater. But if your heater is off, how will you stay warm? Simple: invest in motorized shades. The right window treatment can help insulate your spaces so you don’t have to constantly run your heater throughout the cooler months to maintain a comfortable living environment.
The fact is that most of your home’s heat will escape through the windows. By creating a pocket of air between the window and the covering, and by using sufficiently heavy material, you can insulate your space similarly to the way a blanket keeps your body warm when it’s cold.

Motorized Shades are Perfect for Summer, Too
Smart shading is one of the most versatile additions to any home. They’re perfect all year round because they help you regulate temperatures in your spaces. They keep you warm in the winter, but also minimize solar heat gain in the summer time, so you rely less on the A/C during the warmer months.
Solar heat gain is the process of a room warming up due to the sun’s heat. Plenty of homeowners love to keep the windows uncovered during the spring and summer to minimize the use of artificial lighting, but end up spending money on keeping their spaces cool. Sun shades are a great solution. Their see-through design allows light to filter through without the harmful UV rays that can heat up the room and eventually destroy furniture. Sounds intense, right?
