Electronic devices are everywhere nowadays and let’s be honest, some of them seem a bit excessive don’t they? When the purse strings are tightening and energy bills are rising, certain household items feel like an extravagance. At first glance, motorised blinds would be one of them. 

However, while we understand that point of view, we’d have to disagree with it. At Appeal Home Shading, we believe that motorised blinds are a long-term investment. They’re more than a frivolous luxury purchase and will pay you back for years to come. Here are several reasons why.

Increased Kerb Appeal

Firstly, motorised blinds increase property value. Putting a precise figure on it is impossible, but the fact is that motorised blinds are incredibly stylish and modern installations that will improve your home’s kerb appeal. If you ever decide to put your house on the market, you can expect a higher asking price.

Long-Lasting Blinds

Motorised blinds are also very durable and long-lasting. Ours are built to handle repeat use and once they’re up, they’ll be in top condition for years. This means less time and money spent on repairs. As an aside to this, motorised blinds are cordless and if you’ve ever had a pet dog get tangled up in your blinds, you’ll know how much hassle this can save.

Thermal Efficiency

Our motorised blinds also offer exceptional thermal efficiency. We’ve talked extensively about how window blinds can reduce household heat loss, and motorised ones are no exception. Pair them with double-glazed windows and they function like an additional layer of insulation and make it far easier to manage the temperature. This means you’ll spend less on heating and cooling systems, cutting your household bills and reducing your carbon footprint at the same time. This is a long-lasting benefit that you’ll get for years to come.

Are Motorised Blinds Worth It?

With all these points to consider, it’s easy to see why motorised blinds are more than just a flash-in-the-pan gimmick. After a while, you’ll recoup the original asking price through savings on your energy bills, and there are several other benefits as well. Motorised blinds can be set on automatic timers, or to respond to certain light levels. This makes them an extremely functional and efficient type of shading. 

So yes, you could still get old-fashioned corded blinds and operate them manually, but if you have the chance to invest in motorised blinds, you should seriously consider it. They might be slightly more expensive than regular blinds, but the long-term rewards more than make it up.
