Types of Windows that Need Motorized Blinds or Shades

Home automation is becoming the norm, rather than the exception, and with this trend comes the popularity of electric window treatments. After all, no one wants to walk to every individual window in their home to let in the sunshine each morning, only to have to close them to gain some privacy every night. With motorized blinds or shades, you can control your light exposure with just the touch of a button, and some systems are even compatible with voice control, home hubs, phones, tablets, and other smart devices.

Motorized blinds and shades provide an array of benefits, including exceptional convenience, safety, security, privacy, energy efficiency, and comfort. Because of their many advantages, they make an ideal covering for many different types of windows, including:

  • Double- and single-hung
  • Picture
  • Arched
  • Bay
  • Casement
  • Skylight

Rather than being connected to a string, these treatments typically have a tube installed up top that lifts the blinds or shades up, so they don’t interfere with the operation of the window and can be professionally installed on openings that are all shapes and sizes. However, they are most convenient on windows that are difficult to reach, or exceptionally large, like floor-to-ceiling picture windows.

Bay Home & Window partners with Costco. Not only did the Costco collaboration help to give us confidence in the quality of Bay Home & Window, but we also got a great deal on our purchase of window coverings for our whole house! We're very happy with the quality of the product and the high-quality installation work. The window coverings look great.

We had cellular shades installed and it was just want we needed! Finally, we can block out the sun that is just merciless this time of year. I can tell the quality is superb, and install was painless. We had originally ordered light filtering shades and then discovered that it still made the rooms too bright. Bay Home made it easy and affordable to reorder the replacements. They really want us to enjoy our home. Thank you Bay Home & Windows!

Years ago we bought custom wood shutters throughout our home from Bay Home & Window. We had a great experience and our shutters still look great. Recently we remodeled our closet and had them back to create a custom closet. I had no idea how much we could love a closet. Everyone at Bay Home and Window was easy to work with they helped us figure out the design and utilized every inch of our odd sized space. From appointment scheduling to installation everyone was very professional and exceeded our expectations.
