How To Add Motorized Shades Without Breaking The Bank

Embrace the Power of Smart Shading No Matter Your Budget or Space Limitations

How To Add Motorized Shades Without Breaking The Bank

Motorized shades are one of the most versatile smart technology options for your home. Their list of benefits includes added privacy, style and comfort and you can choose from a wide range of models, fabrics and colors to fit any environment. But despite their vast potential, many homeowners still believe they're not the right fit for them. 

For existing homeowners, the phrase “retrofit” can be a loaded one. Thoughts of contractors making holes or tearing down walls, pulling hundreds of feet of wire or sheetrocking, repainting and refinishing a space can be a homeowner’s worst nightmare.


Fear not because Lutron’s wireless and battery-powered shading solutions are the perfect option to add shades to your home without turning it into a construction zone.

Designed for simple and affordable application, these products are a great entry point into the world of motorized shades. Enjoy all the perks of motorized shading without having to deal with invasive wiring. Are you interested in adding shades to your condo in Hartford or your beach house in Westerly, RI, but not sure where to start? Then keep reading and let us show you how this can all be possible with the power of Lutron.

Is a Smart Home Out of Your Reach?

Custom smart home solutions are often considered a luxury item compared to their DIY counterparts.

Although there are more options available, below are four we've recommended most for families from Old Saybrook, CT to Newport, RI.

How You Can Benefit from Lighting Control Throughout the Day

Different hues simulate certain moods and enhance your overall well-being

How You Can Benefit from Lighting Control Throughout the Day

Sunlight is vital to our well-being, which is why there’s been a growing trend of using tunable LED fixtures to create more human-centric lighting. Tunable LEDs adjust their hues throughout the day to mimic sunlight. Natural light patterns help regulate your sleep cycle to fend off stress and depression, as we’ve previously discussed in the blog linked below. 

As the days start getting shorter in the fall throughout New Englandfrom Westerly, RI to Hartford, CTit’s the perfect time to embrace a more health-conscious lighting solution. There are a variety of manufacturers that offer tunable lighting, but we recommend Lutron home lighting control for their wide range of fixtures and control options

But out of all their features, the one we want to highlight in this blog is their day/night conditional program. Rely on just one keypad in the kitchen, bedroom or living room to get the ideal lighting no matter the time of day. The space will illuminate differently using the same button, whether its 6 a.m. or 6 p.m. In this blog, we’ll show you how that feature plays out in a typical day.
