Master Your Home Lighting with Motorized Shades

What do you think of when someone mentions motorized shades? The first thing that might come to mind is convenience. Perhaps you think about them in the same way power windows were thought of for automobiles 30 years ago. Power windows were an optional luxury then. Try to find a new model car with hand-cranked roll-up windows today.

The point is, many things that start as luxuries quickly become so useful that they become mainstream, familiar, and often more affordable. That's the way we think about motorized shades. While they may not be in every home, there are excellent reasons why they are a valuable addition to your Bernardsville NJ home.

Beyond the sheer convenience of controlling shades and window treatments with a button rather than a cord or some other mechanism, there is the benefit of managing light in your home. Home lighting is more than just your artificial lights; it's also controlling and harnessing the natural light that enters your home. That's the critical benefit motorized shades bring to the table.

Introducing Home Lighting Design from Bravo AV

Stage Your Home in the Best Light Possible

Introducing Home Lighting Design from Bravo AV

When you walk into a room, light tends to set the mood. If you’re out for a night of dancing at a club, dim lighting and color enhance the mood alongside lively music. If you went to an elegant dinner beforehand, subdued lighting and candlelit tables set the mood there, as well.

In your Chester, NJ home, the lighting is also a critical element of the overall design. Home lighting can spotlight a unique work of art, a shelf of prized first editions, or create a spa-like atmosphere in the master bath.

The saying of “seeing things in a different light” speaks to the power of lighting. Moreover, lighting technology has undergone significant change just in the past few years. LED lighting is available in many types of fixtures and styles, and offers levels of control and customization more powerful than ever before. It doesn’t hurt that LED lighting is also 80% more efficient than incandescent technology, either, which is why Bravo AV is introducing home lighting design services, working hand in hand with you, your architect, builder, and designer to enable you to take full advantage of the latest lighting technology in your New Jersey home.
