How often do you think about the shades in your home?
If you’re like most homeowners, the answer is most likely rarely, if ever. But your shades play a crucial role in the interior design aesthetic of your home as well as keeping your energy costs under control.
This is where Lutron shades come into play. While Lutron is best known for their lighting control systems, their motorized shades have a great deal to offer as well. Today we’re going to focus on Lutron’s Palladiom line of motorized shades, so read on to see all the ways Lutron their luxury line of shades can enhance your Fayetteville home.

WHY MOTORIZED SHADES?
At this point, you may be asking yourself “What’s wrong with the shades I already have?” While traditional shades have not yet gone the way of the dinosaurs, the simple fact is motorized shade treatments have so much more to offer.
To start with, automated shades are much easier to use. Once the shades have been installed, you can adjust any shade in any room of your home from one control device, which is a much simpler process than having to make adjustments manually.
Additionally, motorized shade treatments are an extremely effective way to trim your energy costs. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that nearly half of an average homeowner’s energy costs come from keeping a home insulated and heated. By using an automated schedule and a network of light and heat sensors, your shades can adjust themselves to work as efficiently as possible. Your shades will raise and lower themselves throughout the day and adjust the angle of the blinds (depending on the model) to let in only the amount of light necessary to keep the temperature stable.
With all that said, why should you choose Lutron for your motorized shades instead of a different manufacturer?
First, Lutron’s Palladiom shades have been designed to make as little noise as possible during operation. The brackets on the ends of the shades are made of a seamless aluminum unibody structure that hides all the electronics and indicator lights that power the shades.
Palladiom shades have also been made to blend in with any design aesthetic and be installed with ease. In many cases, the shades can fit inside a window frame or recess without a bunch of extra hardware, which makes the shades appear to float in midair and creates an appealing interior design aesthetic. Palladiom shades also allow as little light as possible around the edges of the shade, which promotes greater energy efficiency.
Finally, the sheer number of fabrics, styles and colors ensures you can find a Palladiom shade that fits your home’s décor. You can even start picking out your choice of shade fabric and color online at the Lutron website.
Taken together, the engineering precision and visual benefits make Lutron’s Palladiom shades a no-brainer addition to your Fayetteville smart home. To learn more, call AV Design Consultants in Springdale by calling (479) 365- 2201, or visit our website.
