Motorized Shades & Blinds: Effortless Convenience

Next Day Blinds motorization options are not available to buy online. If you are interested in learning more, please visit one of our more than 30 convenient Next Day Blinds showrooms in DC, Maryland, and Virginia, or schedule an In-Home Consultation.

Envision this: a world where your blinds and shades raise and lower themselves at the push of a button. It shouldn’t be too hard to imagine. The technology already exists. Technology is constantly evolving all around us, and continues to play an important role in nearly every aspect of our lives, including home automation.

"We’re on the cusp of home automation becoming really popular. Nearly everything in your house can be connected. Your garage door, your washer and dryer, your lights, thermostat, door locks, sprinkler system, shades, and more."
— Jonathan S. Geller, Somfy Customer Testimonial

Next Day Blinds Powered by Somfy

Next Day Blinds is proud to offer Somfy motorization products with our Honeycomb Shades, Roller Shades, Savannah Shadings, and Woven Wood Shades. Our Wood Blinds can also be tilted open and closed using Somfy-powered motorization. Simply choose the look you want for your window coverings, and add the effortless convenience of Somfy motorization.

Somfy-powered motorized blinds and shades provide convenience and elegance at the touch of a button. It’s a great way to maximize energy efficiency, improve privacy, and make your life just a little bit easier.

  1. Energy Efficiency: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that as much as 40 percent of the average home’s heating and cooling costs can be attributed to its windows. In fact, your windows are one of the biggest energy wasters in your home. Fortunately, the right window treatments can make a big difference, especially when utilized properly (i.e. being able to easily open or close your blinds and shades throughout the day), which is where motorization comes into play.Solar Roller Shades with Motorization
  2. Hard-to-Reach Blinds and Shades: Some windows are almost impossible to reach. For these, motorization is the ideal choice. No more struggling to adjust window shades in hard-to-reach locations. Let your Somfy motor do the work for you.
  3. Ease of Use: With the intuitive and simple Somfy-powered remote, you can adjust your window coverings at the push of a button. No need to deal with cords or wands.
  4. Automation: The Somfy-powered remote allows you to automate how your window coverings change position over the course of the day. So, you can ensure your window treatments rise every morning as you get out of bed, and close every night as the sun goes down.
  5. Aesthetics: Motorized windows coverings offer a streamlined and clean aesthetic, blending in seamlessly to almost all home design styles.
  6. Cordless: Window cords are “one of the top hidden hazards” in homes with small children, says U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Chairman Inez Tenenbaum. While all Next Day Blinds products are manufactured in compliance with Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) guidelines, and our cordless window treatments are certified Best for Kids by the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA), motorization is recognized as providing the ultimate in child-safe window coverings.
