Beep! Beep! Beep! That’s the sound of your 6:15 am alarm telling you it’s time to get up. Bleary-eyed, you stumble out of bed and fumble for your blind cord, to let the morning light in. You finally locate the cord and being to tug, eventually lifting the blind to take in the beautiful day outside, which you ignore, turning to go make some coffee. So many of our mornings begin this way, but what if they didn’t have to? What if you could wake up to the sun naturally, laying in bed to take in the day before getting out of bed feeling calm and relaxed, ready for the day ahead. The only thing standing between you and a blissful morning is motorized window blinds.

Motorized window blinds last 50% longer than their manual counterparts. Their motors are quieter than ever, with the motor hidden out of sight and out of mind. The motor puts consistent and gentle tension on the blind each time it operates, reducing the typical wear and tear that comes with manual blinds due to inconsistent tugging each time you raise and lower the blind.
