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.

How You Can Incorporate Motorized Shades into Your Home’s Design

From Nautical to Neoclassical in Newport, You’ll be in Style

How You Can Incorporate Motorized Shades into Your Home’s Design

No one can say that we don’t have varied weather on the East Coast. From bone-chilling winters to humid summers and everything in between, we’ve got it all. Fortunately, the waterfront location on the Rhode Island coast tempers the weather just enough to make the snowstorms slightly less worse and bring the cool sea air in the summer.

In the winter, when the light is at a premium, we might want to let in as much of it as possible. In the summer with a hot sun, we may want to control it better and minimize the use of air conditioning.

What’s the solution? The easiest way is with motorized shades, where you can touch a button – or issue a voice command – and raise or lower window treatments in seconds. Shades can be lowered when the sun is fully streaming in but can be raised to enjoy the view later, especially if you happen to have one of Narragansett Bay or the Atlantic.

Many people think that to get this automated convenience you need to limit yourself on style. That may have been true in earlier days, but there are a plethora of options now with motorized shades. C&T Systems works with Lutron for motorized shading as well as their lighting control systems because both offer a wealth of possibilities. Read on to learn more about Lutron Sivoia QS and Serena shading to see if they're right for your Newport-area residence.
