Think Motorized Shades Have Few Style Options? Discover Lutron


There’s a Lutron Powered Shade for Almost Any Window

When most people think of motorized shades, they likely think of the popular roller styles. While those are the most oft-used motorized style, you might not know that many more types are available. In fact, the word "shade" may be a bit of a misnomer, as motorized window treatments encompass a variety of styles.

As a designer or builder, you likely know the name Lutron. Lutron's mission is all about managing light, artificial or natural, from simple electric dimmers (the company's invention) to sophisticated lighting control for high-end homes and businesses. In shading, Lutron offers a vast array of powered window treatments – eight different styles. From bay windows to skylights, there's likely to be a Lutron shading style you can use for your luxury home projects in Truckee, CA.  Read on to learn more about them.

Roller Shades

Roller shades are the most popular motorized style. Lutron offers an array of fabrics, styles, and colors that will even impress designers. Choose from blackout, dimout, and other translucent materials for various needs. Lutron motors are the quietest and most efficient in the business, with battery-powered models that can go for two to five years without replacement. Lutron's unique Intelligent Hembar Alignment system also assures that shades raise and lower with synchronization at a tight 1/8-inch for smooth, fluid motion.

Roman Shades

Roman shades are a favorite classic window treatment. You can choose from many fabrics, colors, and pleats with the convenience of Lutron motorization. Roman shades, like all other powered Lutron window treatments, are custom-made to order.

Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb styles are popular both for their look and insulating properties. Honeycombs are ideal for the mountain climate with warm summers and cold winters as the shades can retain heat inside and keep excess sun and heat buildup out. Honeycomb shades can be controlled with Lutron or other home automation solutions for effective energy efficiency all year long.

Horizontal Sheer Shades

Sheers are elegant window treatments that provide privacy and various light filtering options. Lutron adds precise powered control of tilting vanes with quiet motors. The shades are controllable by multiple styles of wall keypads, an app, or even your voice through popular platforms like Amazon Alexa and Apple Siri.

Wood Shades

Even wood blinds can be powered with Lutron precision. Blind tilt can be managed to within a 16th of an inch, and the Intelligent Hembar Alignment works for wood blinds, too, ensuring perfect adjustment and sun control throughout the day.


You can apply power and automation to traditional drapery styles, too. Options include pinch pleats and ripple fold, while the innovative Kirbé vertical system lifts drapes up instead of horizontally to allow for better views. 

Cable-Guided Shades

Mountain homes often have angled ceilings with windows. Lutron's powered cable-guided shades keep shades in place in angled, difficult applications. Cable guides are also useful in areas that see significant airflow to keep shades in place.

Tensioned Shades

Skylight shading is easy with Lutron. Tensioned shades can go in fully horizontal or angled applications. Lutron’s design minimizes light gaps around the fabric and eliminates cable guides so you can see a clear view when the shades are opened.

No matter the style of your project, there’s a powered Lutron shading solution for nearly any window.  Let Sierra Integrated Systems be your custom window treatment partner. Contact us here or use the chatbox below to connect with us right away. We look forward to working with you!
