Doubling up your window dressings on one window might seem a little odd, but there are many benefits to layering your window treatments, both practically and aesthetically. 

1. For convenience

Manually opening and closing your window dressings every day is a little bit of a mundane task, a task that needs completing but isn’t interesting in any way. By having motorised window dressings, you can control your blinds with a touch of a button, via a remote or an app downloaded onto your phone. Convenience made simple!

Not only does motorisation mean you can control any of your window dressings in any room from anywhere in your home (or even outside your home) conveniently, it saves you essential time, so you can enjoy more moments that really matter to you.

2. For security

Whether you’re jumping on a plane for a vacation retreat or just popping to the shops to pick up the weekly shop, you want to make sure your home is safe and no nosey passer bys are peeking in. 

Motorised blinds at the window make it seem like you’re always home, giving the illusion that you’re in, even when you’re not. You can schedule your blinds to open at certain times, the times in which you’d normally open your window dressings, so nothing seems out of the ordinary when you’re away.

3. For safety

Motorised blinds have no cords making them less of a safety concern and hassle free. There’s less risk of children being hurt by them with nothing hanging down, plus they provide a neat and tidy look at your window.

4. For temperature control

Connecting a sensor or timer to your blinds means they’ll be able to react automatically to any weather changes. Working all year round, in the hottest weather your blinds can automatically close to keep your home cool and fresh, and when it’s cold outside they will open to let the sunshine shine into your space.
