Saving Energy

Lutron shading solutions take advantage of the natural light of the sun to warm your home in the winter and can protect your home from solar heat gain in the summers. All of this translates to valuable energy savings for you! When your home is warmed naturally by the sun in winter, your HVAC doesn’t need to run as often to keep your interiors warm. During the summer months, motorized window treatments can insulate and prevent the hot sun from warming your home, which means your AC doesn’t need to work as hard at keeping your family cool.  


A whole-home motorized shading solution can protect your home from peeping eyes. While you’re away from home, a predetermined Away scene can lower all of your shades simultaneously. All you need to do is select this button on your custom-etched wall keypad, a smart device, or a remote – it’s simple. Because Lutron window treatments come in a variety of fabric options, you can control not only the amount of light that enters your Huntington Beach-area home, but your privacy as well. For example, horizontal sheer blinds allow soft light to filter into your home while also giving you the ability to control the angle of the vane’s tilt.  

Colors, Style & Fabrics

Beyond choosing the style of the perfect motorized window treatments for your home, you can also select fabrics and colors that complement your California home’s décor. Lutron continuously evaluates trends, so there are always fresh options to choose from, along with longtime favorites. From seven varieties of Jacquard to 16 colors of basswoods for wooden blinds, you are sure to find the perfect match.   If you’re ready to bring the style and comfort and motorized window treatments to your property in Huntington Beach, CA, call us today at (949) 515-7030 or use our online contact form to reach us. We can’t wait to bring Lutron shading solutions to your home.

Interior Protection

The look and feel of a room dramatically shift with the addition of window dressings. Blackout shades can set the mood for the perfect movie night with no light intrusion, while sheers offer sparkling sunlight without the harsh glare. With a variety of color, fabric, and style options available, any homeowner can select window treatments that can protect their home, too. The luxurious fabrics and styles selected for a home do more than simply look great, though.  They serve to protect the interior furnishings, technology, and artwork in a home from harmful UV rays, reduce annoying glare, and can help absorb heat from the sun. The degree to which this is done is dependent upon the fabric’s opacity and the style of the shade. Imagine shades raising in the morning to let the soft morning light in, then with a tap of a button, lowering to reduce the harmful UV rays hitting favorite art pieces.

Set the Scene

Pre-programmed scenes allow for the operation of smart technologies automatically. Typically, a homeowner can operate electric shades and blinds with the tap of a button on a smart device, remote, or on-wall keypad. With scenes, the operation occurs with no direct action required from the homeowner, plus additional smart home technologies like lighting control or security systems can be programmed to work simultaneously at specified times. An “Evening In” scene can initiate the shades to lower in every room of the home and allows for increased privacy at night. Simultaneously, smart lighting can brighten to a warm glow in the living room, dim in the media room, and custom-designed spotlighting can showcase artwork in the den, all while creating a relaxed mood.   Call us at (949) 515-7030 today or reach us online to begin exploring the opportunities available from custom motorized window treatments.
