Types of Motorized Blinds and Shades

Serving North Palm Beach County, including Jupiter, Tequesta, Palm Beach Gardens, North Palm Beach and Singer Island, Custom Window Décor of Jupiter knows how hot the Florida sun can be and how important it is to have window treatments that are both beautiful and functional. Motorized window treatments from Hunter Douglas check both of those boxes.

Types of Motorization

PowerRise - PowerRise allows you to raise and lower your motorized shades or blinds with the Platinum wall switch or remote. This system works on horizontal blinds, shades, and sheers.

PowerTilt - For use on any type of window treatment with slats or vanes, PowerTilt uses the Platinum wall switch or remote to tilt the vanes on your motorized sheers or the slats on your motorized blinds. Several blinds can be adjusted at the same time with this system.

PowerGlide - Your vertical blinds can also be controlled remotely. PowerGlide gives you the ability to open and close your vertical blinds and rotate the vanes without leaving your seat.

PowerView - The most comprehensive of the motorization options available, PowerView combines the abilities of all three of the above systems to give you complete control over your window treatments.

Types of Motorized Window Treatments Available

Having several types of automation is great, but if you don’t like any of the window treatment styles that can be motorized, they are basically worthless. Fortunately, this won’t be an issue, because Hunter Douglas offers some type of motorization on the majority of their window coverings.

Silhouette and Pirouette – These beautiful sheers with fabric vanes are available with all but PowerGlide. PowerRise will raise or lower the sheer panels, PowerTilt will tilt the fabric vanes to filter more light, and PowerView will do both.

Luminette – These vertical sheers, which are perfect for your sliding glass doors or sliding windows, are made all the more perfect with PowerGlide. Being able to control them with a remote means no more getting up from the kitchen table to adjust them when the sun is in your eyes. Luminette is also available with PowerView.

Honeycomb shades – PowerRise or PowerView is all you need to have automated control over your honeycomb shades. Use either system to take full advantage of the energy-efficiency of these stunning shades.

Roman shades – Woven wood and Roman shades add texture or softness in high-traffic areas or tight spots where draperies can get in the way. Adding the convenience of operating them remotely with PowerRise or PowerView makes them hard to beat.

Wood blinds – Don’t think you have to forgo the traditional beauty of wood to get the convenience of automation. Wood and wood alternative blinds are both available with PowerRise, PowerTilt, and PowerView motorization.

Vertical blinds – What could possibly increase the functionality of vertical blinds? Having them automated of course. Use PowerGlide or PowerView to open and close your blinds and rotate the vanes.
