Motorized Drapes and Curtains

Motorized window blinds and shades are the ultimate in style and simplicity. Control your blinds from anywhere in your room with electric curtains from Distinctive Window Treatments. Our range of luxury motorized window treatments allow you to easily raise and lower window shades as well as automate your home for the maximum energy savings. We offer remotes, switches, timers and sun sensors to protect your home furnishings from harmful UV rays.

With windows becoming larger and harder to reach, motorized window shades have evolved into a standard – rather than a luxury. We are happy to work with you and figure out solutions for unusually shaped or positioned windows, large area restaurants, greenhouses, skylight structures and atriums. We have experience with automating blinds and shades for any window that operate at the touch of a button for the ultimate in convenience and comfort.

Motorized systems are perfect for so many applications, including:

  • Operating a group of several shades or drapes at the same time
  • Integrating motorized window treatments with an automation system and setting them to operate on a schedule
  • Incorporating timers and sun sensors into your motorization system to protect furnishings from harmful UV rays

In what kinds of windows do motorized shades and blinds work best?

Motorization is ideal for any large or hard to reach window coverings and skylights. Motorized shades and blinds are also ideal for greenhouse and skylight shades, unusually shaped or positioned windows, glassed-in skylight structures, large-area restaurants, and atriums with automated retractable shade requirements.

Because motorized shades and blinds are available in a variety of materials it’s easy to blend them right in to your existing décor or allow them to stand out and make a bold impression. No matter where you decide to put your motorized shades, they will provide a cleaner look and make your home safer by eliminating cords and chains.
