At SmartWings, we know how important your budget is to you. When you decide you want to purchase smart blinds, it should be an investment that you’ll be able to enjoy for years to come. Since they are a piece of technology, smart blinds are going to cost much more than the average set of blinds your landlord installed in your first apartment that broke after a day.
Not only are you paying for technology, you are paying for style and quality. Smart blinds are built to last, and are priced accordingly. You get what you pay for, as they say. So, before you set out to find the perfect smart blinds for you, let’s look at how much smart blinds cost.
You might be wondering what could possibly make blinds be worth over $100 at times. Well, smart blinds are not only blinds but a piece of technology. They are motorized blinds that can be controlled from everywhere and connect to your smart home devices. Pretty cool, right?
Motorized blinds on their own are a great feature to add to any home, but with smart blinds you have the security of knowing you can control them from anywhere at any time. This gives you added safety measures of keeping your home safe.
All you have to do with smart blinds is sync them to your current smart home system and you will be good to go. You will be able to control your blinds from any smart devices you have, set timers and it’s one less thing to worry about with your busy lifestyle!
When choosing smart blinds, it’s important to look at all aspects of the cost. There is the cost of the blinds, smart home devices, installation and any additional plug-ins you may need. When you are creating your smart blinds budget, you must take all of that into consideration.
Typically, smart blinds are not going to cost you less than $100 for a decent window fixture. The average price for the entire installation will usually be around $500. The price will depend on the size of the window you are planning to install the smart blinds on. The larger the window, the more the blinds will cost.
Material also plays a role in the cost. If you are getting a custom made woven wood smart blind set, they will cost more than a standard motorized roller shade. For example, our SmartWings Motorized Light Filtering Roller Shades start at $164.99, while our SmartWings Motorized Woven Wood Shades start at $249.99.
If you require professional installation, this will add on another cost with an average of $50. This cost will also vary by window size. The bigger the window, the higher the cost will be for installation. If you are handy or know someone that can help you, you can cut some corners eliminating this cost.
Another factor is the number of windows you are getting window treatments for. Odds are you are not going to be installing smart blinds on only one fixture in your home. Typically when people choose to install smart blinds they do the whole house.
So, when you are planning to do 5 windows, you have to factor in the cost of one window treatment 5 times. If you don’t want to spend a large amount all at once, you could plan to do the installation in phases. Perhaps one room at a time, or prioritize certain windows.
Something many folks don’t consider when setting their smart blinds budget is the type of motor they want for the blinds. This is going to affect cost a great deal. It might be easy to think grabbing the cheapest motor option is the best way to save a buck, but keep in mind if you want the smart blinds to last, the motor is going to have to as well. The motor is what will keep the blinds functioning.
When choosing a motor, you have to remind yourself that smart blinds are an investment. Going with a cheaper motor could shorten the lifespan of your investment and leave you spending much more than your intended budget down the line. Typically, a smart blinds manufacturer like SmartWings will give you several motor options to choose from during your purchase.
While you research the smart blinds, be sure to research the motor options, as well. Look at warranties and customer reviews. The last thing you want is to end up with a motor that is potentially loud or doesn’t work properly.
To sum it up, there is a lot to consider when purchasing smart blinds. Cost is one of the biggest deciding factors and it can be confusing to figure out. Make sure you have a budget before you set out to do your research and know what you need to be looking for. Consider materials, size of windows, how many windows, installation cost and motor type.
With anything, a good rule of thumb when asking yourself "how much do smart blinds cost?" is to consider how big your windows are. The bigger the job, the higher the price. Check out our selection of SmartWings smart blinds today to get started!
