Traditional vs. Motorized: Comparing Your Window Treatment Options

Are you worn out after hassling with your heavy traditional curtains whenever you want to stop a glare or get some privacy? If so, it’s time to upgrade to motorized window treatments from Lutron. Not only do they offer the convenience of remote-control operation, but they also provide a variety of other benefits that traditional shades simply can’t match.

Continue reading to compare motorized shades to traditional curtains and see why Lutron’s motorized window treatments are the best choice for your New York, NY, home.

The biggest advantage of motorized shades is the convenience they offer homeowners. With the simple touch of a button, you can open or close the shades or change their position to allow just the right amount of light inside. You can also control them with your smartphone, tablet, or voice commands.

With traditional shades, you have to manually adjust them each time individually, which can take some minutes if you have multiple windows. Not to mention, reaching for those high windows can be quite a chore. As a result, sometimes homeowners simply give up on letting the sunshine in because managing traditional shades can be so challenging. 

Energy Efficiency

Motorized window treatments are not only convenient, but they can also help you save money on your energy bills. Lutron’s shades can be programmed to automatically adjust to the sunlight, keeping your home at a comfortable temperature and reducing the need for so much air conditioning during summer. 

Can traditional shades also help minimize the sun's impact on your energy bills? Yes, they can, but you have to work much harder because you have to manually adjust them as the sunlight changes throughout the day to keep your home comfortable.


Traditional shades may have cords that can pose a choking hazard or become tangled, leading to accidents. With motorized shades, there are no cords to worry about, making them a safer choice for families with children or pets.


You may think that traditional shades have the motorized versions beat when it comes to style options, but you’ll be surprised to learn that a wide variety of choices exist. Lutron’s motorized shades, for example, are available in many styles, colors, and materials, making it easy to find the perfect window treatments for your home. Whether you want a modern look or a more traditional style, there’s a motorized shade option that will match your décor. In addition, motorized shades come in various opacities, from sheer to blackout, so you can also match window treatments to the needs of specific rooms in your home.

The Finale

Overall, motorized window treatments from Lutron offer more benefits to homeowners than their traditional counterparts. In fact, traditional shades hardly compare. So with the convenience, energy efficiency, safety, and style of motorized window treatments, why wait to switch?
