Rooms with Bay and Bow windows are a perfect example for justifying the purchase and installation of motorized shades. When you have three to five windows side-by-side, it make sense to eliminate all the cords and raise or lower your shades all at once or individually remotely without having to crawl over the couch, lean over or around the side tables or worse – place your furniture to accommodate getting at the controls/cords/wands etc. Another benefit is that when the shades are raised there are no cords, wands or chains interrupting your view.
Let’s say you have a Bay Window, three shades. A large shade in the middle and two smaller shades on the side.
What we need are three shades, three motors, 1 remote and in this case we’d recommend using rechargeable motors so we can eliminate the need to run wires permanently from an outlet to the shades.
Shades – $500
Motors – 3 x $160 = $480
