They have become the new advant garde trend with their creative use of color and design to give a house owner a sense of home.

There are a wide array of discount window blinds, all made with different types of materials and mechanisms. The most common of discount window treatments is non other than venetian blinds which were made popular as far back as the late nineteenth century.

They are easily recognizable from their overlapping slats, with the versatility of being opened or closed in varying degrees by using a simple side cord mechanism. The venetians are still the best for sunlight and heat control.

The main reason is that the overlapping slats gives better blockage from the sun when used as sun control and the amount of sun entering your room would determine the amount of heat passes through the blinds into your room as well.

Woven Bamboo is an alternative materials used by discount window blinds which are evergreens for a leisurely look and feel, and are often used to block sun at patios, kitchen or relaxation corner of the home. Also, in the last 10 years, cellular materials also debut as a bid to energy conservation. They are oddly shaped like honeycombs and are specifically designed for maximum energy efficiency.

Your blinds can come in either horizontal or vertical in design. The most common ones are horizontal, as they are easy for interior designing purposes, more popular with home makers due to their ease of cleaning. They are best for regular or smaller sized windows.

However, should you have large windows or long stretches of windows along the hallway or high windows that stretches up all the way to the ceiling, you will need vertical blinds for greater versatility. They make better choices with used with large windows as well as sliding glass doors.

As you can see, you are indeed spoilt for choice when it comes to discount window treatments. There will surely be a few, if not more, types of quality but cheap window blinds that suit your decorating purpose and theme.

Motorized Window Shades – Somfy Vs Lutron – QED and Sonnesse on blindsontime.com

Somfy and Lutron both offer tubular motors for raising and lowering interior motorized window shades. Lutron sells the motor and shade together while Somfy sells just the motor which can be combined with any window shade. Both companies also sell controls (wall switches, remotes and interfaces) that are used to operate their respective motors.

In the late 90′s, Lutron introduced the QED (Quiet Electronic Drive) which it paired with its own brand of shades (roller shades mostly). The product made big waves for being practically noiseless. This was a classic example of redefining the parameters of competition in an industry. Beforethe advent of Lutron’s quiet motors, consumers did not even know that motor noise level was or would become a factor in their motorized shade purchase decisions. Only in the last couple of years has Somfy caught up to the QED’s noiselessness. Today, there is still a difference, but it is slight and most consumers do not consider it a deciding factor.

Somfy manufactures two different types of ‘quiet’ motors used in motorized window shades; an AC powered version (ST50) and a more recently introduced DC powered version (ST30). Lutron’s QED Motors are all low voltage, DC Motors. The difference between AC and DC power is that the former is high voltage while the latter is low voltage. AC Power is the same as the power received from plugging a cord into a standard wall outlet. Low voltage is powered by that same outlet but the cord has a transformer (think of a cell phone cord or a computer power cord with their boxes on the plug on in the middle of a cord – that is a transformer) and reducing or ‘knocking down’ the high voltage power received from the outlet to low voltage power. A main reason that DC power is important is that fewer building code issues arise and no electrician is required for wiring low voltage powered motorized window shades. Absent an electrician, wiring costs and job complexity are both considerably reduced.

The QED is available in three different sizes called the QED64, QED100 and QED225. The number gives a rough gauge of the square footage of fabric that the motor is designed to lift. For example, the QED64 can lift a shade up to 8 feet x 8 feet, the QED100 can lift a shade up to 10 feet x 10 feet and the QED225 can lift a shade up to 15′ x 15′ – this size motor is only very rarely required for residential applications. These are approximations only, in the field, these motors are known to actually lift more than these numeric values imply. The size of the motor affects its diameter which determines the diameter of the tube that the motor uses. Lutron’s QED64 uses a 1 5/8″ tube, the 100 uses a 2 ½” tube and the larger 225 uses a 3 1/2″ tube. Tube diameter is important mostly for determining how wide motorized shades can be without bending (deflection). A bent tube means that fabric will not roll up properly. The fabric will sag causing creases- this is not acceptable. Therefore motor size is as much about shade width as it is about lifting capacity.

Somfy’s quiet motors, known as the Sonnesse line, also use different tube sizes. The ST30 uses a 1 1/2″ tube, the ST50 can use either a 2″ or 2 1/2″ tube*. The lifting capacity of the ST50 falls somewhere between the 100 and 225. For very large applications, Somfy has larger motors, but to date, they are not in the Sonnesse (quiet) product line. It is very rare that a motor larger than an ST50 is needed for interior applications. This is true even if multiple shades are driven by a single motor.

Both the QED and Sonnesse motors have proven to be reliable and both come with 5 year warranties.
