Spring is often a popular time for home owners to freshen up their space with a renovation project. An easy way to update a room (or the entire house) is upgrade your window treatments.

Budget Blinds Owner, Sue Swarbrick, said that smart home automation is definitely the trend this season in the blind and drapery industry.

“Motorized blinds are becoming more and more popular. They are especially helpful for hard to reach windows or when you have a lot of windows. It’s just such an easy way to control the natural light in your home,” said Sue.

Budget Blinds uses the the Somfy® motorization system, which is available in all types of blinds and is one of the leading systems on the market with the best warranty in the industry. Sue said that while it may seem like it’s more of a luxury item, many people often regret not getting them.

“People were used to having mini blinds, verticals or vinyl roller shades that you got 30 years out of for a relatively inexpensive price. So the concept of motorized blinds is still fairly new, but we have clients telling us all the time ‘I wish I had motorized them’.
