Are Motorised Blinds Worth It?
When it’s time to refresh the home, most of us budget for modernising the kitchen, updating the bathroom, or replacing the carpet. But what about your windows?
Motorised blinds are not only convenient (and even stylish), they’re also practical, and they do more than what meets the eye – so, here are five reasons why motorised or electric blinds are worth the investment and how much they cost.
Let’s dive in.
5 Reasons Why Motorised Blinds Are Worth The Investment
Motorised blinds provide more value for money than you may think. Here’s how:
1. They’re Energy Efficient
About 30% of your home’s heating or cooling energy is lost through the windows.
In fact, programming your blinds to automatically close during the hottest part of the day reduces indoor temperature by up to 18%.
Not only do they keep your home cool in summer, motorised blinds also offer excellent thermal control during winter. Program them to automatically close when the sun goes down, stopping the heat in your home escaping through the windows and keeping the indoors cosy and comfortable.
2. You Have More Security & Privacy
Motorised blinds give you the luxury to program your blinds to raise or lower at predetermined times throughout the day.
Whether you want to create the illusion that you’re at home while you’re on holiday, or simply want to block out the neighbours, motorised blinds provide the privacy and security you want for your space.
3. Great For Hard To Reach Spaces
Maintaining and managing your blinds seems easy. But what about those hard-to-reach spaces?
Electric blinds give you complete control from every room, no matter the height or space, from a single remote, wall switch, or even from your smartphone.
They’re great for large homes, stairwells or skylights, so you can forget struggling to reach tall windows to operate your blinds every morning and night.
4. They’re Completely Kid & Pet Safe
For young families, motorised blinds mean there’s zero chance of your kids pulling, swinging, yanking or getting tangled in chains, ropes or cords.
They provide complete peace of mind and are 100% kid and pet friendly.
5. They Protect Furnishings
Don’t let your furniture, flooring or artworks suffer in the sun’s UV rays. With electric and motorised blinds, you can successfully control the amount of harsh natural light entering your home.
Simply set your blinds to close when the sun hits certain areas, and open again once it has passes to prevent your belongings from fading or warping.

How Much Do Motorised Blinds Cost?
Generally speaking, you can expect to pay anywhere from $700 to several thousand dollars for motorised blinds. But the price will vary depending on their size, opacity and style, so it’s hard to give a definitive indication of cost.
Note: There is the possibility to link motorised blinds, so the price of the motorisation may only apply to one of the blinds in a series if they are linked together.
