Automated Shading from Launch Systems Elevates Spaces, Adds Comfort

Shades and blinds aren’t usually top-of-mind when homeowners begin thinking of ways to customize their new home or embark on a remodeling project. Smart tech like voice control, home control, and even audio/video entertainment are frequently at the top of their minds, but not usually shades. That’s a shame because motorized shades should be closer to the top of the must-have list!

In Corona del Mar and throughout Orange County, Californians bask in sunshine an average of 265 days per year. And while we love the warming rays it brings, being able to manage its entry into your living spaces is key to comfortable living. Here, the quintessence of luxury is the harmonious blend of elegance with cutting-edge technology. At the forefront of this new wave of home luxury are automated window treatments, a symbol of how modern technology can enhance the living experience without overshadowing the inherent beauty of a space.

The Evolution of Window Treatments

Gone are the days when extravagant chandeliers and sprawling estates solely defined luxury. Today's high-end homes look smart and are smart because they blend traditional elegance with the seamless efficiency of modern technology. 

You no longer have to walk from room to room to open and close window coverings. Instead, you can sit on the couch or in bed and press a button to illuminate your home with stunning natural lighting.

One tap, a prescheduled setting, or a voice command can send luxurious drapery or shades into action, raising or lowering to the perfect height to block glare, add privacy, reduce heat gain in living spaces, and look great, too! Comfort and control are at the fingertips of the homeowner now.

Motorized Shades Are the Pinnacle of Convenience and Style

Imagine waking up to the soft, natural light of the Californian sun, your bedroom bathed in a warm glow as your shades automatically adjust to your pre-set morning preference. This is the daily reality with smart shading, which offers convenience through remote controls, programmable settings, and integration with whole-home automation systems

However, the appeal of motorized shades extends far beyond their functionality. They are a testament to how technology can complement personal style without compromising it. Brands like Lutron offer a wide array of designer fabrics and high-end styles, from sleek and modern to classic and elegant, to enhance the aesthetic of any room. Technology becomes an essential feature of your daily routines while also feeling right at home in even the most traditionally styled spaces.

Enhancing Daily Life in Orange County

In a region blessed with so many days of sunshine a year, managing light is more than a nice-to-have matter of luxury but a necessity! Automating window coverings empower homeowners to adjust their environment simply and intuitively. 

Not only that, they provide protection against UV rays, preserving furniture, artwork, and your skin while offering the flexibility to bask in the sun's warmth whenever desired. Filter sunlight while maintaining gorgeous coastal views, or block out light entirely at night for a more peaceful night’s sleep.

The ability to automate these routine adjustments based on the time of day or sunlight intensity means that your home can remain energy-efficient and comfortable without constant manual intervention. Think about the time and energy you’re saving by being able to automate this small yet time-consuming task each day multiple times per day.

The Invisible Tech Advantage

In the pursuit of integrating technology into luxury homes, there's a fine line between enhancement and intrusion. The beauty of motorized shades lies in their ability to offer advanced technological functionality while maintaining the aesthetic integrity of the space. This "invisible tech" approach ensures that the technology discreetly serves you, augmenting comfort and convenience without becoming the focal point of the room. When you can feel the benefits of technology without necessarily seeing it, you can maintain the elegant, uncluttered look that is a hallmark of luxury living in Orange County.

Types of Window Treatments

One size does not fit all, which is why customizable Lutron shading solutions are perfect for unique spaces. From the kitchen to the patio, contemporary styles to ultra-traditional, there’s sure to be a perfect shade, blind, or drape that suits your stylistic tastes and room requirements. Here are a few:

  • Roller shades
  • Roman shades
  • Drapery
  • Wood blinds
  • Tension shades
  • Horizontal sheer blinds
  • Honeycomb shades

Control Options for Shades

Every home is as different as its homeowners, so how you prefer to manage shades and other connected devices could be different from that of your neighbors and our other clients.

Whether it’s a Control4 home automation system or a lighting and shading system powered by Lutron HomeWorks, Launch Systems ensures you have the ideal control setup installed to manage all of your smart devices.

From start to finish, Launch Systems makes your project our top priority. We start with an initial needs analysis and consultation, where we come to understand your shading needs, budget, and timeline. From there, we design a system you’ll love, and if you don’t, then we’ll make adjustments until you sign off on it. Next, we design and install the perfect smart shading configuration that will make your life easier and add a touch of class to everyday routines.
