Hartley Window Coverings is your one stop shop for all your high-quality window treatment needs for homeowners near Santa Rosa, CA. We are proud of the products we carry, and we are excited to share them with you.

The newest and most exciting innovation in window treatments right now is motorization. There are a lot of different options you can incorporate into your home, though we firmly believe we have the best options on the market with Lutron motorization, and we’ll explain why.

All our motorized systems can be incorporated into any home automation system, so you can alter the light in your home with just a word or the flick of a finger on a tablet or smartphone app. If you’ve settled down for a movie with your popcorn but forgot to draw the blinds, this makes your life so much easier – and gives no one any time to steal your popcorn while you get up to fix the problem. We are expertly equipped to help install and integrate your new window motorization system once we’ve helped you select the best option for your home.

If you don’t want to even worry about using an app to adjust your blinds, there are a multitude of other options. You can set them on timers, use a remote control, adjust them from a wall mounted controller, or even have wind and sun sensors installed that tell them when to close based entirely on the varying outside weather. This is fantastic, because even a set schedule won’t adjust based on the changing times of sunrise and sunset so easily and seamlessly.

We have a selection of available power options to integrate, based on what will work best for your home, family and lifestyle. Our favorite option is hardwiring as it’s usually the most reliable method of motorization. They are only wired for power, all communication with the windows is wireless. No batteries will need changing, and most systems will come with a motor to integrate with whatever type of electric current you choose to use. Some may opt to use battery power, which works wonderfully for smaller windows, though it provides less power and may not be the best option for tall windows and heavy window treatments. Electrical wiring has the strength and power, and lower failure rate, and can lift even the heaviest window treatments, but it needs to be decided upon before installation so that the electric current can be incorporated into the installation process.

Be sure to contact us to learn more about what these innovative window products can do for you and your home, and we will be happy to work with you every step of the way so you never have to worry that the job won’t be done correctly! We are looking forward to coming to visit you in your home to discuss your options, so give us a call today. We are happy to service Santa Rosa, Petaluma, Sonoma, Novato, and Napa, CA.
