Now that you have decided to purchase motorised blinds for your home, you’re probably looking for some advice on what type of motorised blinds would best meet your needs. As the options for motorised blinds have expanded in recent years, there are a number of different styles to choose from. Here are some tips on how to determine motorised blind quality as you shop.

Check the Warranty

Making the decision to invest motorised blinds means that you should choose the option that will last the longest. Make sure to seek out a product that comes with a complete warranty. Certain brands only provide limited warranties for their products which exclude some of the parts. A brand that offers a warranty of at least 5 years is ideal to ensure that you are covered for any repairs or replacements for years to come.

Window Treatment Compatibility

Before you fall in love with a particular model, you need to make sure that the option that you selected will work with your windows and the style of blinds that you prefer.

Automation Features

Home automation is all the rage these days and you should look for motorised blinds that can be controlled by your smartphone or a remote. This will make it easier for you to adjust your blinds depending on the time of day all with just a few clicks.

Noise Level

While motorised blind companies work hard to make sure their motorised blinds are as quiet as possible, you’ll still want to view the blinds in person to make sure that the sound the motor gives off is at a level that you are comfortable with. This is especially important if you plan to install your motorised blinds in your bedroom so that you don’t end up with blinds that disturb your sleep if you are sensitive to noises.

How Is Motor Powered?

Motorised blinds may be battery-powered, solar-powered, wired or plug-in. Battery powered motors are generally considered to be the least expensive option. However, you’ll also need to factor in the cost of periodically replacing the batteries for your blinds. Other options such as wired or plug-in blinds provide maintenance free options that you might find more preferable and cost-effective over the long term.
