Why Wireless Blinds & Shades?

The biggest draw of wireless window treatments is flexibility. Wired solutions are easiest to install before drywall is installed; otherwise, there is a lot of retrofit construction that needs to happen. But with wireless shades, we can help you design custom shading solutions before or after the walls have gone up. Plus, hard-to-reach windows in dramatic entries, stairways, and high dormer windows have long-lasting batteries that use an app to notify you when battery levels are low.

Because very minimal installation work is required, wireless shading solutions are a smaller investment of your time and resources. Your new (to you) California home can be move-in ready with the experts at Launch Systems by your side.

Save Time and Money

There are many advantages to working with a professional for your motorized roller shades installation. The most popular reason homeowners choose a DIY installation is because they think it will save them time and money. At Launch Systems, our trained technicians know exactly what they’re doing and will take measurements correctly the first time around. There won’t be any extra holes in your walls or windows due to a DIY snafu because our experts use the right tools for the job. Remember, we do this every single day—it’s our job to know the ins and outs of the installation process.  

Guaranteed Quality Products

You might save on the initial costs of hiring a professional when you turn your motorized roller shades installation into a DIY, but you aren’t guaranteed the high-quality installation or products that you would receive from an expert. When working with a professional installer, you can count on a seamless experience from the initial consultation to post-installation support. We stand behind our work because our reputation is on the line, and we want you to have the smart home of your dreams. Besides superior products and a seamless window treatment installation experience, the best part about working with a professional is the warranty that covers any technical mishaps that might occur—though, you’re much less likely to experience them when you choose to work with a professional!

The possibilities may seem overwhelming, but with the help of a reputable motorized roller shades installation expert like Launch Systems, you’ll be able to review the options in a streamlined and relaxed manner.

Fabric Options

Styling goes beyond simply picking out your favorite fabric colors. Fabric options abound with options that include sheers, translucent, or blackout fabrics. Sheer fabrics have an open weave that filters sunlight while allowing for less privacy and the preservation of ocean views. Translucent fabrics have tighter weaves that shift harsh sunlight into a filtered lighting experience while also providing privacy. Blackout fabrics are opaque, block light from entering your home, and are perfect for media rooms or bedrooms for complete privacy and light blockage.  

Roller Shades

Shading solutions from Lutron include roller shades, drapes, wood blinds, tensioned shades, and horizontal sheer blinds, to name a few. A motorized roller shades installation gives your California home a contemporary and stylish look. Functionality and an elegant aesthetic are the end result of this window treatment. Roller shades from our lighting and shading partner, Lutron, are available with or without fascia, pockets, and side channels. Including fascia offers a more finished look, and you can fabric-wrap the fascia to match the roller shade fabric you selected. If you’d prefer a custom top-of-window treatment, then a roller shade without fascia but perhaps a pocket would be perfect, because it offers you flexibility and the option to add cornices, valances, or drapery.  

Control Options

One of the best benefits of motorized window treatments includes not needing to walk throughout your Huntington Beach-area home to open or close each window treatment – talk about a time saver! Contemporary and architectural keypads are available in fashionable options that include finishes in metals, mattes, glosses, and satins. Launch Systems can always request color samples for you to see selections for yourself in your home. Beyond keypads, there are remotes, smart device apps, and voice command control options available. Go a step further and program home automation scenes that incorporate multiple smart technologies at the tap of a button. Tap the Evening Scene button, and the shades in every window can roll down to add privacy, the smart lighting can dim to a relaxing hue, and your multi-room audio system can begin playing relaxing wind-down music.     If you’d like to bring the value of motorized roller shades to your California home, call us today at (949) 515-7030 or reach out using our contact form. We can’t wait to work with you.
