Let Your Smart Home Manage Your Window Coverings

The interplay of natural light in a room draws you in, intrigued by the sunlight that diminishes the separation between our interior world and the world of nature that lies beyond our walls. As the architect, Richard Meyer said, “Architecture which enters into a symbiosis with light does not merely create form in light, by day and at night, but allows light to become form.” 

In addition to creating an alluring ambiance and enhancing the materials and colors it touches, there is an undeniable connection between our emotions and the level of natural light in our homes. Natural light enhances vitality, boosts moods, reduces stress, and improves sleep.

So, why do we find many homes in Denver, CO, with the shades drawn? The answer lies in the UV rays that can cause permanent discoloration and sun damage to our home's interiors and the direct sun's glare that makes it difficult to see computer screens and TVs. We lower the shades when sunlight enters our homes, and there they remain throughout the day, reducing the beauty and benefits of the sun.

Motorized shades change that.

Bring Beauty and Well-Being into Your Home with Daylight


Effortlessly Manage Sunlight and Privacy with Motorized Shades

Those who live in Vail, CO, experience some of the best views the world offers. Light filters through the windows for almost 250 days of the year bringing with it increasing feel-good serotonin levels, stimulating the production of vitamin D, and aligning visual and circadian systems that evolved with the dynamic shifts of daylight. 

Today, sunlight plays a critical role for designers, an element like no other. Like lighting design on a set, it affects one's perception and influences moods, changing the emotional quality of a room. In fact, one of the best ways to assess good architecture is by evaluating how natural light is managed throughout the space. As Louis Kahn, the highly influential modernist architecture, said, "We are born of light. The seasons are felt throughout light. We only know the world as it is evoked by light.”

Are you ready to experience effortless management of sunlight? Read on to discover how motorized shades bring beauty, vitality, warmth, and daylight into your home.

Motorized Shades Provide Beauty, Elegance, and Effortless Control

Natural light is known to elevate our moods, increase productivity, and enhance our well-being. So important is it to our health and your home’s beauty that world-class designers determine the quality of architecture by how natural light illuminates the space. With the proper lighting and window treatments, a home becomes a sanctuary, illuminated from within and brought to life with the sun's filtered rays. 

Motorized shades can create this warmth and intrigue and make managing daylight effortless. They also offer exquisite window coverings with designer fabrics from around the world in sheer, woven, and luxurious tactile materials. When integrated with a home automation platform, these shades create the perfect level of daylight and privacy without effort, providing extreme convenience and comfort.

Motorized Shades Offer Effortless Control of Daylight


Bring Beauty and Elegance to Your Home with Motorized Window Coverings

Window coverings can bring incredible beauty and functionality to our homes, significantly changing how a room looks and feels. They can add a touch of elegance, a modernistic flair, or a whisp of sheer material designed to pay homage to the sun. 

They protect our fine art and furnishings from direct UV rays that fade hardwood floors, rugs, art, and photographs. They let the beauty of diffuse sunlight in, while providing privacy when evening falls. These window coverings play a significant role in our daily lives, yet we often take them for granted. Raising and lowering them throughout the day is more trouble than benefit, leaving many stationary. 

That’s where motorized shades come in. These shades offer the same beauty and elegance along with automated and one-touch control. Tap an icon on a touchscreen and lower every shade in your home or in just one room. Tell the shades to lower by 50% in the living room, and it's done. Wake to shades that automatically rise with the first rays of the sun. Motorized window coverings make the tedious fun and managing daylight effortless. 

Are you ready to create unrivaled ease of living while adding beauty and elegance to your Denver, CO, home? Let’s explore the many benefits motorized shades provide.
