Do you ever wake up too early on weekend from the lights shining through your windows and wish that you could close your blinds from bed? Blinds that you can control while laying in bed are no longer something kept just for your dreams.

Remote Controlled blinds are a great addition to any home or office. No longer will you have to strain to open and close blinds that are in hard-to-reach areas, or simply leave windows near the ceiling forever open or closed. Many of these blinds are even compatible with your smartphone, making it so you can control your blinds from anywhere inside, or even outside, your home..

Remote control blinds offer a touch of elegance and simplicity to any room. They are especially useful for the following:

  • Meeting rooms in office buildings
  • Bedrooms
  • Entertainment rooms
  • Windows facing neighbors or streets
  • Rooms with high or hard-to-reach windows

Remote controlled blinds make controlling light and privacy simple and convenient.


When you’re shopping for remote control blinds you want to take into consideration style, power, and remote options.


There are two main styles of remote control blinds: motorized life and motorized tilt. Motorized lift is when the blinds actually lift from bottom to top. Common options for remote controlled blinds with motorized lift are cellular, roller, and Roman shades. Motorized tilt is when the blind slats open and close. Common options for remote controlled blinds with motorized tilt are slatted wood, faux wood, or aluminum blinds.


Remote control blinds are able to be powered by solar, battery, or DC adapter.

Solar powered blinds are great for windows that often receive direct sunlight. They have an added benefit of being eco friendly, having no cords, and offering a sleek design.

Battery is another great option when you are wanting a sleek design with no cords. The battery tube fits inside the top part of the window treatment.

DC power adapters are great for their dependability. They will work as long as they are plugged in, and you won’t have to worry about sunlight or batteries running out. They do, however, have a cord that needs to be plugged in nearby.


There are a wide variety of ways that you can control your remote controlled blinds. The traditional remote can have multiple channels to control different rooms and blinds, or you can even have a switch on a wall that opens and closes your shades.

If you would prefer to reduce the number of remotes you need and be able to control your remote control blinds from anywhere, there is an app where you can program your blinds in your smartphone.
