THE JOY OF AUTOMATION
“Most people will raise and lower their blind once or twice a day, so if you want to manually operate it, you’ll need access,” explains Wynstan’s Amelia Taylor. “If items obstruct the window (or you prefer not to do it yourself), consider automating it.”
Automation is very affordable for window treatments — prices have dropped over the past decade as the technology has become more accessible. And if you are worried about losing the remote, Wynstan allows customers to use their smartphone to control both curtains and blinds. This means you can operate them even after you’ve left the house.
If you are considering automation and doing a new build, talk to your builder early on, as automation can be hard-wired by your electrician during construction, making it much more affordable.
