Q: I would really like to get remote controlled shades but don't know what kinds are available. Can you help?
A: Absolutely! There are lots of options for remote controlled or “motorized” shades, it just depends on what you're looking for. A lot of manufacturers understand the demand for the convenience and style of remote-controlled shades, so there are lots of options.
Cellular shades come with remote controlled options which makes them perfect for large picture windows and media rooms. I also highly recommend motorized light-filtering sheer horizontal shades because they're the only shades you can control the raise, lower, and tilt with your remote. If you're looking for something more traditional, however, you may want to look at motorized wood or faux wood blinds where the tilt is controlled via the remote.
Remote controlled shades are perfect for hard to reach windows like skylights or tall windows. But, honestly, they're great for any room where convenience and luxury are key!
