It's a fair question: should you put motorized window treatments (shades, blinds, curtains, etc.) in your dining room?
While everyone's tastes and budgets will be different, we'd like to offer a resounding "Yes!" as the answer to that question. Not only can they bring an extra touch of style to an already elegant area, but they can also add personality to smaller, more intimate dining spaces.
But there's more than just their visual appeal: convenience is a big factor in people choosing motorization, and not because they're lazy. Windows in hard-to-reach spots such as corners and heights can have their shades easily raised or lowered without the risk of injury or furnishings damage from standing on chairs or reaching over things.
Safety is another benefit, especially if you live in a home with children or pets. Motorized window shades and blinds are cordless, thus eliminating any of the threats posed to the little ones in your home.
Motorized window treatments are also energy-smart! They can easily be programmed to automatically rise and lower at specific times of the day, allowing you to keep your dining room from getting too hot or cold (depending on the season), thus keeping your bills and energy consumption down even when you're not around. As a bonus, this can protect any fabrics, photos, and art you may have from sun damage as well.
Now that motorized shades are becoming more affordable, they are definitely worth considering for your dining room, or any room in your home for that matter!
