3 Key Features to Look for in the Perfect Motorized Window Shades

When searching for motorized window treatments, you want a product that works well and looks great in your interiors. But that’s just the beginning. What else should you look for in a motorized shading system for your Issaquah, WA home?

Lutron, a leader in smart home lighting and shading systems, redefined the standard for quality motorized window treatments when it revealed the Palladiom Shading System a few years ago. Lutron Palladiom is beautiful, discreet, and quiet—the perfect shading system for sophisticated homes. It embodies every key feature that any worthwhile shading system should have, plus more.

Keep reading to learn about three key features of Lutron Palladiom shades. These are the features you should have on your shortlist when on the lookout for motorized window treatments.

Complements Virtually Any Interior Design Style

Changing out motorized window treatments isn’t like changing out a lampshade or throw pillow. The treatments you choose should look great through many seasons of life. Unless you’re undergoing a total remodel, you should consider shades that complement your spaces even as you change up the décor. Solid, neutral shade colors and subtle textures will go a long way.

Lutron Palladiom is designed to fit anywhere and look beautiful no matter your taste. Whether your home is minimalist, midcentury modern, eclectic, or countryside chic, Lutron Palladiom elevates virtually any interior design. Installed without a fascia, pocket, or recess, Palladiom shades can sit perfectly inside a window frame with no additional exposed hardware. Plus, the hand-finished aluminum brackets and hem bars are available in beautiful finishes like satin nickel, pure white, black anodized, and more.

Synchronized Alignment Across Every Shade

It’s certainly convenient to adjust your shades at the touch of a button. But watching them lift and lower in unison is also a magical experience. Imagine walking downstairs in the morning to a dark living room and kitchen, tapping a button on your wall keypad, and watching as every shade in both spaces slowly lift together to reveal beautiful outdoor views of snowcapped mountains and bright blue skies.

This enjoyable experience is ruined by clunky, uneven shades that lift at different speeds throughout the home. The Palladiom shading system features Lutron’s patented Intelligent Hembar Alignment (IHA) technology, which ensures nearly perfect alignment within one-eighth of an inch during motion and at all stopping positions. Even if tube sizes differ across small and large windows, IHA adjusts the speed of roller shades of different sizes so that all shades move in unison. The result is level and graceful lines.

Built to Be Seen, Not Heard

Another make-or-break feature of any motorized window treatment is the sound level of its motor. No one wants loud motors interrupting their sleep or conversation, but even moderately audible motors can cause disturbances such as waking a baby or adding unwanted noise on top of your music.

Lutron Palladiom is the quietest in the industry. In fact, all of Lutron’s shading systems offer the same ultra-quiet experience when in motion. At 38 dBA, the sound level of Lutron’s electronic drive unit can be compared to the noise level of a refrigerator hum or even a whisper. This feature makes Lutron shades perfect for nurseries, listening rooms, home theaters, and other spaces where silence is desired.
