A living room accented in chartreuse with Lutron motorized shades partially lowered over windows.


The art of daylighting is becoming increasingly popular among homeowners, designers, and builders. It uses windows and skylights to bring the beauty of sunlight indoors, enhancing your home’s aesthetics while reducing energy consumption and providing the sun’s healing effects. Rooms bathed in daylight feel energized, colors appear more vibrant, and textures reveal their true dimensions.

The best way to incorporate this light is by adjusting your window coverings as the sun arcs across the sky, letting in just enough diffuse light while limiting solar heat gain in the summer and retaining warmth in the winter. Yet, according to a study by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), a home’s window coverings are rarely adjusted, with an estimated 75% remaining in the same position every day. 

Fortunately, there is a way to create a space of beauty that takes advantage of daylight, and it’s the one recommended by the DOE—motorized shades. Let’s explore how they operate and enhance your home’s design in Chesterfield, MO.
