Motorize window treatments for your Burr Ridge home

Burr Ridge, Illinois is a suburb known for having beautiful homes with tall windows. However, such high windows can make shades a hassle to open and close.  For houses like these, it’s only logical to motorize shades in atriums, staircases, or multi-story rooms with high, hard-to-reach windows.

People often underestimate how life-changing motorized window treatments can be. Imagine you are watching TV in your family room. Suddenly, in the middle of your show, the sun’s glare fills the screen and makes it hard to continue watching. With motorized windows treatments, you can conveniently and effortlessly control the amount of light in the room with a push of a button! The same goes for windows over your tub—no need to interrupt your soothing hot bath. Adjusting the amount of sunlight is now as easy as flipping a light switch.
