Motorised Blinds VS Traditional Blinds: Which Is Right for You?

Motorised Blinds VS Traditional Blinds: Which Is Right for You?

Blinds provide you with more control and convenience when it comes to lighting and privacy in your home. Whether you choose to go for regular traditional blinds or motorised blinds for your home, you’ll be making a fantastic window-covering choice.

What is the difference between motorised and traditional blinds?

Traditional blinds are sometimes referred to as manual blinds, and require hand operation to open, close and adjust the blinds. Whilst, traditional blinds tend to use cords or chains to control the blind, motorised blinds remove the need to hang cords, chains or strings. A motorised blind is operated with an electric motor and controlled with a remote. This enables you to open and close all your motorised blinds with just the touch of a button.

Which type of blinds is right for you?

Due to motorised blinds coming with a motor, you will find that it will cost more to purchase them and have them installed in comparison to traditional blinds. With this in mind, if you are on a budget, then traditional blinds could be a better choice for you.

Despite this, if you have some wiggle room to spend slightly more, then motorised blinds can provide you with a range of perks which make them a worthwhile investment.

If you opt for traditional blinds for all your windows, you’ll spend time opening the blinds each morning and closing them each night. This time is eliminated with motorised blinds.

On top of this, motorised blinds provide an automated lock system, making them safer than traditional blinds. As an example, if you forget to lower your motorised blinds when you leave the house, you will be able to lower the blinds and lock them from any location.
