When figuring out the right window treatment to install, it can be hard to know which one is best for you and why. At ABC Blind & Drapery, one of our goals is to help inform our customers about different treatments and the benefits of each one. For this reason, we have gathered useful information about when to use motorized window treatments so that you can decide if they are right for you.


An important reason motorized window treatments are great for your home is because of convenience. Motorization can be great if you have a hard to reach windows such as a second story window or a window above the bathtub. Instead of having to get a ladder or into the bathtub to reach your coverings, motorized window treatments can ease your efforts by allowing you to open and close them with a hand-held remote or a wall switch.

Save Money

You may be thinking, “How is this going to save me money when motorized window treatments cost more than some of the other treatments?” Well, in the long run, motorization can help you save money by lowering your energy consumption. By scheduling your coverings to open and close based on the temperature throughout the day, your air conditioner ends up doing less work during the hottest hours of the day and you can also help prevent your furniture from fading as quickly.


If you have kids, motorization will help ease the worry that window treatments with cords cause. By choosing a motorized window treatment, you can manage the operation of your window covering with a hand-held remote or a mounted wall switch, allowing for maximum safety for your child. The worries of your children playing with the cords of your window coverings are gone forever with motorization, so rest easy and take a breath.

We hope this helped you decide whether or not motorized window treatments are the right option for you. Ready to purchase motorized window treatments for your home or commercial space? Contact us today and we’ll gladly help you start the process!
