Lutron Serena Shades

Austin, Texas gets lots of sunshine. Driving down South Lamar Blvd, not too long ago was a billboard ad for Tesla Solar, claiming that 300 days out of the year is all sunshine for the lone star capital. They were probably not far from the truth. Storm fronts are short, and when they come from the NW, they are usually blown back up from Gulf winds. On average, there is over 100 days above 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

And of course, everything is bigger in Texas, including the vehicles we like to drive, and the homes we build. Most of the new contemporary homes being built around the city have larger windows- large awnings, large casements, large customized shapes of all kinds. There’s plenty of benefits from having windows like this, including, lots of natural light, bringing the outdoors in, panoramic views, and aesthetic appeal in general. A disadvantage can be all that heat and light coming into the home, during certain parts of the day, or year. Especially if you don’t have motorized shades for all those windows!

Serena shades by Lutron, are premium, battery powered, motorized shades that can be controlled with a small remote. There are over 150 different fabrics to choose from with Serena, including varying opacities, and insulating honeycomb styles. The advantage of these particular shades is that they require no wires. While there are other advantages to having wired shades, (including more customizations) the low maintenance and quick installation can make up for it.
