The Benefits of Electric Blinds

If you’re in the market for some new blinds, you’ve probably considered a number of different styles, but what about electric blinds? Electric blinds have soared in popularity as of late, and there’s a good reason for this. Let’s take a look at some of the different reasons why electric blinds will improve your lifestyle at home.

Easy to use

The most obvious benefit of electric blinds is that they are extremely easy to use. No more fiddling around with cords, rods or chains – all you have to do is press a button to make your blinds go up and down. It’s really that simple. This ease of use is excellent for those who have live-in elderly relatives, as they will be able to operate the blinds without a problem.

Safe for children

Not only does the lack of cords, chains and rods make for a much simpler experience when it comes to opening and closing your blinds, but it also makes your blinds much safer too, as they will no longer be a choking hazard for children. This makes electric blinds an ideal option for schools.


Peace and quiet isn’t always easy to come by these days, so when we can open our blinds without the scraping and scratching noise that’s characteristic of traditional blinds, we’ll chalk that up as a win. The motors of battery-powered blinds are getting better and better too, which means that the already-quiet opening and closing process is only getting smoother and quieter.


You might think of anything that’s motor or battery powered to be unreliable and quick to break, but this simply isn’t the case with electric blinds. Battery-operated electric blinds use standard alkaline D cell batteries that can last almost up to five years, so you won’t need to worry about recharging or replacing anything for a long time.

Perfect for hard-to-reach windows

If you live in an older home, or you just happen to have a set of windows that are awkwardly positioned or difficult to access, electric blinds are an obvious choice. Remote control means that you don’t have to spend any more time on your tip-toes reaching for the cord – you can just sit back on your sofa and relax.

No cords, no wires

Unknown to many, electric blinds are completely wireless, so there’s no real tradeoff when you decide to forgo the cords and rods. There’s nothing to trip on or try and hide, and there’s nothing for a child or pet to get caught around, giving you complete peace of mind.

Relatively inexpensive

One of the reasons why people are put off by electric blinds is because they believe them to be expensive, but this isn’t true. Electric blinds only cost fractionally more than regular blinds, and considering all of the benefits that you get, the payoff is certainly worth it!
