- Maintain Privacy
If your top priority is maintaining privacy, blackout shades would be one way to ensure no one can see in your home. However, Lutron roller shades can be customized to still give you some visibility so you can see outside of your home. You’ll be able to see outside, and some light will come through, but people won’t be able to see inside your house.
Keep in mind that the darker your roller shade fabric is, the better you will be able to see through them. It seems counterintuitive, but take a look at a white roller shade and you won’t be able to see anything.
- Save Energy
The best way to save energy is to connect your shades to the rest of your smart home system. Motorized shades already help shave money off your bill every month, but when you tie them to the lighting and HVAC, you can save even more.
During the day, keep the shades open and the lights off. Then in the evening, close the shades for privacy and turn on the lights so you can see. Shades also help maintain a specific temperature. In the summer, use solar shades to keep the house cool and set the thermostat to nothing lower than 75. In the winter, shades will help insulate the house as well, so you won’t have to crank the heat either.
- Add Style
You’ll never have to sacrifice style with Lutron shading systems. They have every style you can imagine, from motorized draperies to venetian blinds and roman shades. Match the fabric color to your room’s color scheme, and you can even include the wall keypad too. With a long list of different finishes and colors, you are bound to find something you love to make the room look stylish.
